    It wasn't a baby, it was a toddler, and even a toddler should know how to behave itself in public - if I carried on like that, I would've gotten a good old-fashioned spanking and never misbehave again. If parents can't control their kids at the movies, then they shouldn't take them to the movies where they'll be disruptive for everyone else. I'll agree the lady went too far with the popcorn bucket and what have you, but honestly, kids need to behave themselves in public, whether at the movies, at a restaurant, a library, a store, or anywhere really.

    Ok, but clearly the mom doesn't care about how the kid behaves. Regardless of whether or not they *should* know better, the point is, they dont because they weren't taught any better. Yes, kids should behave, and parents need to do their job to teach them to behave.

    Take your anger out on the parent. Not the kid.

    Rightfully so. One time at Shoney's, there was a mother with a bunch of rowdy kids sitting at the table behind us, and my dad got beaned in the back of the head with a blob of mac-n-cheese; he turned around, looked at the mother and asked, "Do you not know how to control your own kids?"

    Parents today have no clue what they're doing, and this is why we had TWO reality nanny shows.

    There's a lot of factors at play here.

    For one thing, apparently you can't discipline your kids anymore in this day and age, because it's considered "child abuse," and you can get locked up for it. As I said, back in my day, a spanking was something you might get if you're in real, deep trouble, but as the years went on, more and more people argued that spanking or any other physical punishment was child abuse, so you'd be hard-pressed to see kids be met with a belt for acting up.

    Another thing is that we kind of live in a time now where kids are almost always forced to grow up too quickly and not even really get much of a childhood, and I think it's because you can't really reason with kids like you can adults, and people don't have the patience to want to deal with kids, so try to mold them into mini-adults as quickly as possible.

    But one of the biggest problems too is that too many parents as still kids themselves: kids today aren't properly educated about the facts of life and what have you, so when their hormones get to raging and they do regretable things as a result and end up having babies, they're not prepared to raise these little bundles of joy, and those babies end up growing up messed up kids because their parents don't even know what to do with them.

    Oh, well thank you Dwayne. :p

    Sorry, I just feel like I haven't seen him post very often here so I don't know him too well.

    Okay so I saw a few posts from Dwayne on that cancerous thread about politics that I must have just dismissed, and from seeing some, I'm guessing he's an independent like me.

    That would explain the photo, lol.

    I can't post it here because of the repetitive crude content. But I saw an old episode of MTV's Wonder Showzen today and boy was it hilarious. That show is absolutely bizarre in every sense of the word. Don't believe me, here's the plot summary of the episode I saw today (I can barely even type this without laughing):

    A Cooties outbreak spread across America and one of the main characters, Wordsworth got infected. So instead of helping a buddy out, his close friend who simply goes by the name of Him and nothing else decided to take his Cooties sores and sell them as a very unhealthy but delicious snack. He called his diabolical creation Chewties and all of the kids in America loved them, having no idea what they were actually eating. Until one day, Him decided to come out and tell everyone the truth about the ingredients found in his world famous snacks. The episode ends with Wordsworth waking up and realizing the whole thing was a dream. In addition to all that hilarious insanity, that episode contained what may be one of the funniest quotes I've heard in a while.

    Wordsworth:Ummm, Chauncey. You told me you were going to let me read my extensive, comprehensive speech about the significance of honesty!
    Chauncey:I did!?..............I lied!

    Kills me every time LOL!

    So yeah. Look at another "intellegent" comment from Susan:

    A more useful comment: Peter Linz said this was the first thing he did on SS.

    Where'd you find that out?

    One of the BTF episodes on YouTube. One question one week was if anyone of them remembered the very first time they performed on the show, and Peter said as you look through the hole in the wall, he did the two bugs dancing together.
