Just spent over 2 and 1/2 hours on hold with Equifax. Can not even begin to explain how shitty their customer service is. Finally got my issue resolved the second time I asked to speak with a supervisor.
Plus side got my credit card approved for the limit that I wanted. And the credit card guy sounded super cute and friendly so he made my morning better.
Someone is being 100% crazy tonight. Turned around after working on the computer for a while and surprise! I have no idea how long she’s been laying like this waiting for me to rub her belly.
No this is not funny.
Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.
These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.
No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.
For wanting to play games.
For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?
This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.
This is a sure fire way to get your kids to hate you.
do people not understand how much video games cost?
Video games are a multi-billion dollar business. Some people are good at it. Very good. Do not squander your child’s talents, help them realize them and strengthen them. There are other ways to get your child outside without destroying their games and everything they work for. This won’t solve anything; this will only set them back further.
do this to your childs anything and they will automatically hate you/not trust you
It doesn’t matter what it is
It doesn’t matter if its their video games or if its their smoking pipe
If you just destroy it/throw it away, you are giving no explanation as to why it’s bad/you don’t want them to have it
This can actually psychologically mess a kid up because you teach them that if someone doesn’t like something, they should destroy it
That can lead to some serious problems with socializing with others and other things
dont do that to people
I had a notebook I used to write in all the time. I did that thing that Margo did in Paper Towns where she criss crossed her writing, but I did it so I’d have enough room to write everything. I took it everywhere wtih me and wouldn’t let my parents even start the car unless I had in in my lap. My dad got really annoyed by this and said I needed to throw the notebook away, what was written in it wasn’t important anyway (it was to me, very much so). So one day he took and ran it through the paper shredder.
Ever since I’ve had an intense fear of losing my notebooks and currently have a colletion of 53 blank notebooks and 16 that have been written in because I’ve started hoarding them.
Long story short, don’t fucking do this to your kids. You think it’s harmless and some people even think it’s clever, but you’re really just an asshole and are causing actual psychological problems for your children.
I have a plush rabbit that I’ve had since Easter of the year I was born (I was about 2 months old when I got it). It quickly became a comfort thing for me and I used to go everywhere with it as a child. When my mum and dad split up was when I became kind of dependent on having it around.
If ever I did anything wrong mum always threatened to take it away from me, which obviously caused my 6-year-old self to kick and scream and cry because I needed it.
One day I lost it for 6 or 7 months (turns out it was in my room the whole time but shh it was very well hidden & neither myself or my mum know how it got there)
That was the point that my mum realised she couldn’t threaten to take it away because holy shit I changed so much in those months.
Seriously, if your child is dependent on something, or takes great comfort in having it around
DO NOT TAKE IT FROM THEM.
It does not matter how old your child is, what their comfort item is, if it’s a video games console - don’t take it from them. If it’s their phone - don’t take it from them. If they’re 18 and still sleep with a teddybear - don’t take it from them.
This also goes for if your child is self-harming. If they have a blade in their bedroom and you find it DO NOT THROW IT OUT. Talk to them about it, be as supportive as you can, but do not think “oh well if I get rid of it they’ll be fine”. It can be seriously distressing and also lead to them becoming creative with what they use.

The fight in StLouis continues.
Interesting. For all those who say how violent and lawless the protestors are …
Ferguson is an open carry gun town. I haven’t heard any reports of protestors carrying guns—has anyone? Guns on the civilian side would start a bloodbath, as hair trigger as the cops have shown themselves, and yet …
There were some reports of a few individuals with guns around the times of the riots. They were mixed in with the peaceful protesters but were trying to cause trouble. As to the fact of the peaceful protesters having guns, I haven’t seen or heard anything about them having them. I agree that a gun, legally carried, on a protester would start something. Shoot now and ask questions later seems to be the running motto for the police in Ferguson.
Here is one of the bookmarks i made for a person who got second place in my giveaway. yah kel and alanna! all but the first place prizes have been sent out and hopefully most of you already have them.

It was Brave New Girl! I was looking for movies made in the late 90s. xD
Google finally pulled through with a “movie about a singing school” search.
Okay guys please help me out. I’m thinking of an old movie with a girl as a main character. Maybe she went to a singing school/performing school maybe not. Completely unsure. I do know that at the end of the movie there is an opera number (maybe it has other styles of music in it too), and I do know that this movie is neither Pitch Perfect or Coyote Ugly.
So basically I know nothing about the movie except it’s about a girl and she sings an opera piece at the end of it.
Help me out?
