Choose These!

Babes that hook up with gamers have issues that they have to deal with, mostly surrounding the problem of how much time and attention their boyfriends lavish on games instead of upon them.

Some of these young women go to interesting lengths to get the attention they crave…

You'd better put the controller down and 'choose these' or I'm out of here
You’d Better Choose These!

And no, boys. Turning around, seeing that, and chirping, “Pika Pika!” is not a good idea, tempting though it may be. 😉

Spare The Rod…

There’s an old axiom based upon Biblical advice that states that goes, “Spare the rod and spoil the child.” It has, along with most forms of parental discipline, fallen out of favor in modern, Western society.

He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes.

Proverbs 13:24, the Bible (KJV)


Withhold not correction from the child: for if thou beatest him with the rod, he shall not die. Thou shalt beat him with the rod, and shalt deliver his soul from hell.

Proverbs 23: 13-14, the Bible (KJV)

Let’s leave the question of whether or not discipline benefit the child aside for the moment and consider a new proverb, “Spare the rod and raise a douchebag.”

Spare The Rod And Raise A Douchebag

Really! As David Hochman asks and answers, is current indulgent parenting spawning a generation of entitled hipster brats?

Let us begin with the assumption that if you are a parent, you wish for your child every advantage and opportunity. From the ergonomic high chair to that all-important first sushi experience and beyond, life should be as golden for your little one as it is for, say, Pax Jolie-Pitt.

But inevitably the moment arrives when all your doting and care come back on you in the form of a precocious little barb that reminds you in no uncertain terms of . . . you. It might be that his friend Jake’s eighth-birthday party was “unbelievably lame” or that “it’s weird that Brandon’s family flies first-class and we don’t,” or maybe it’s simply that “these taquitos taste like turd.”

It’s then that you must reckon with the real possibility that your drive to make little Johnny better, smarter, and hipper has merely turned him into a douchebag.

Now Mr. Hochman focuses on the evils of the Liberal urban elites, which is not entirely fair since the problem and problematic end results are endemic across many socio-economic strata of Western society, though the motives of the parents are likely to differ based upon economics, race, and culture. Yet it’s not particularly unfair either since these Liberal urban elites are set up as something akin to role models by the media and have the power to affect laws and policies in ways that make any form of parental discipline impossible or risky.

Now don’t get me wrong, with the surprisingly success of Reality TV, there’s obviously going to be a continuing job market for douchebags, but is raising your progeny to be fit for only that one job such a good idea, especially at the cost of the rest of us having to either put up with them or put them down?

The iPad Killer

An “iPad Killer” has finally been unveiled, though it’s not running Android, Windows, and isn’t even a competing tablet. It’s Pope Benedict XVI!

His Holiness and His New iPad - So much for Apple and Steve Jobs
The iPad Killer – Pope Benedict XVI

Apple has easily survived the release of the information that its products are manufactured by Chinese slave labor worked and kept in horrific conditions. Likewise the electronics giant was not chided for its upwards of 60% profit margin on it popular portable products. These facts just don’t affect Steve Jobs’ and Apple’s image with the bulk of their customers.

On the other hand, the iPad being used by the Pope could quite likely hurt Steve Jobs and his company greatly. That is something that the average Apple customer – the Liberals, Hipsters, and Generation Y Slackers – really don’t want to be associated with. 😉

If this keeps up, Steve Jobs won’t be able to afford to buy any more Third World vital organs and will have to use the transplant waiting lists just like Joe and Jane Six-Pack.

Generation Y

People who were born after 1983 are referred to as Generation Y. I used to think this was laziness intermixed with a certain level of irony since the previous generation were referred to as Generation X.

Generation Y
So That’s Why They’re Generation Y!

Then, all of a sudden, calling them Generation Y made perfect sense. 😛
