"Then, yesterday, I came home from work early and what do I find? My innocent little boy smoking pot in the back yard with two of his delinquent friends."

It's never your child who's the bad egg. After all I could have been this way round.

Somebody paid $10,000 for a video game? When reality is that messed up, how could you not argue in favor of using mind-altering drugs?

Or

"Then, yesterday, I came home from work early and what do I find? My moronic husband mortgaging the house for a Wii game!"

I think I'll stick to pot. It's cheaper in the long run.

All praise to the dad. A friend of mine sent his son to Europe on a jaunt after he stupidly got popped for pot at his school. He really laid down the law....

Well, at least he made a nice profit by selling the game

Besides video games can turn you into a slacker just as easily as pot if you get addicted to them.

Well, drugs ain't funny and juveniles consuming drugs ain't either. A close friend of mine consumed joints regulary from the age of 15. He's 21 now, got around jail 2 times by pure luck and he's changed a lot.

He steals money from his own little sister and uses her collection of original Euros to get cigarettes from the automat. He can no longer differentiate between what really was and what was his own imagination.


Drugs are not funny, trust me.

I'm sure it was a scam/ruse bid on e-bay.

like the guy who bid millions for Eminem's boyhood home. "Oh, you actually believed my bid?"

Well, it's so rare and so demanded, that last week a couple of criminals in the US hijacked a van carrying a load of this game. With weapons they forced the driver to exit the car, transfered the cargo into their van and fled with a load of this game.

Well, if nothing more, the man had made a great investment...and punished his son at the same time. In the end they both come out winners. The man made a lot of money and the son knows his father means business. The only thing is that it may take longer for the son the reap the benefits of this transaction. I don't mean to sound all philosophical, I just know what it is like to have sons. I am very thankful that I do not have a daughter. I can only imagine that they would be infinitely more difficult to bring up. My wife keeps dropping hints that she wants to have a fourth child...and she wants a girl http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif You think it is a zoo in here.
