    Well geez, it's not a mortal sin.

    I don't think there's anything wrong with typing him, but as is probably suggested, just not in this thread. Like @Nara said, that happens, then this thread goes to MBTI circle jerk.

    Anyway, moving along.

    I think it's disgusting, but predictable. Unfortunately.

    Well, my closest friend at USBC is alive and well, according to a facebook post by his relatives. Still waiting to hear about his girlfriend, who is blond & curvy, and anyone else he is friends with.

    just thinking out loud on why this might be the case:
    are white middle class families more likely to replace direct discipline (time out, restrictions, spanking, etc) with the use of money as their main parenting tool?

    it's a bit of throwing a dart in the dark here, but if a child grows up where the reward for positive behavior is getting what he wanted and the punishment for negative behavior is withholding it... you are essentially raising a child to feel that not getting what they want is a form of punishment... and in the video's he sounded just like that: "i keep doing all my homework and my chores, why is nobody taking me to disneyland?!"

    Although we are going to be in the minority here, in the right circumstances, physical discipline has been shown by MANY studies to create more well adjusted adults.

    When there's no consequence for a child's bad behavior (I don't personally think taking away an iPhone for a day is an appropriate consequence or punishment)there's a huge risk for spoiled brat syndrome.

    "My daddy used to tan my hide!" I don't personally think there's anything wrong with that, if the child is ultimately loved, and realizes this is punishment. And that's a far cry from straight up beating children.

    Quote from source: Physical Discipline

    "Previous research has found children are more likely to grow into well adjusted adults if their parents are firm disciplinarians.

    Traditional “authoritative” parenting, combining high expectations of behavior with warmth and sensitivity, leads to more “competent” children, according to the 2009 study by researchers from London's Institute of Education."

This encourages others who may be considering killing others in a public way to do so in a visible manner. In essence, it's under the microscope.
    More about that:

As far back as 1853, there are recorded instances of disgruntled students bringing weapons to school to exact revenge on their teachers, principals or other students for whatever reason, real or imagined.

    This is certainly not unique to the United States. There are recent and historical records of school massacres, workplace killings and other mass-murders in many countries around the world throughout recorded history. Just yesterday 22 adults and children were stabbed by a crazed "knifeman" outside a school in China. Knife attacks at Chinese schools have been a common occurrence in the past few years, with at least ten attacks resulting in over twenty dead and many more seriously injured just since 2010.

    You realize that Aspergers is a developmental disorder and not a mental illness, right?

    Also, precisely which mental illnesses do you believe should disqualify someone from owning a gun?
