It's like so many kids today have little to no foresight....they have very poor judgement and they never see the consequences of their actions, before stuff gets out of hand. No critical thinking skills. They get an impulse, and they go with it...knee jerk reaction. They never see the train wreck coming.

Seems like these beings are gettin' more cruel and insensitive, with each generation....just mean-spirited and hateful. Don't claim that's just "being a kid", because it's not. I wasn't like that when I was a kid (and none of my friends were either). How do you "teach" compassion and kindness, and when do the lessons start? I'm curious, cuz I saw a 4-year old swingin' at a PUPPY, with a rake, just a few days ago. I intervened, and took a moment to teach a child how to handle a creature, smaller and more fragile. Many folks would have laughed, shook their heads...and kept movin', which is a problem.

I'm so sick of "Facebook"...period. Too many dummies (adults and their offspring) being irresponsible, at someone else's expense.

I've worked in some sort of capacity with children for over 15 years and I can say unequivocally that children are INDEED different from what most generations were 15 years ago.

It's not that bullying or violence didn't happen during those times, but more of the fact that it was not the norm like it is now. Yes, the media plays a role in broadcasting these situations, but um, do you really think that there would have been a mass shooting like that in the 70's or 80's in the first place? Easy access to guns or not, the world has become a vastly different place. Back in those days, a kid could bully you to some extent in the school or neighborhood, perhaps. Now, a bully can find you on FB or twitter and taunt you. Make a page dedicated to calling you a slut. Send you 40 texts messages a day calling you a ***got. It's relentless.That is why I don't question or judge how a teenager can commit suicide. Because the bullying may seem like it's never going to end. The message for those teens needs to be that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Not that they are selfish or don't understand how worse life can be, because in their mind, life is as bad as it gets.

Kids aren't equipped to handle the level of taunting/bullying that's often intensified, because of technology. Plus, parents are different now. What's allowed now by parents would not have been allowed, when I was a kid. It's a different day.

So, while I have no illusions about the "good ole' days", I would NOT want to be a young person, in this day and time.

My curiosity got the best of me - All of Keeny's talk of SpongeBob twins and Jay Leno piqued my interest, so I youtubed a random episode of Bad Girls Club Las Vegas because I'd never seen it.

First off, those are 14 minutes of my life I want back.

Second, what's the purpose of the show? Are those, uh, females (can't call 'em ladies) living, eating, partying, mayhem creating, etc., free of charge for just the heck of it? To out bad each other??? Or are they living in a mansion with the purpose of eventually being reformed? I don't get it, nor will I, b/c I won't bother ever watching to find out.

Third - what a bunch of disgustingly nasty, triflin', stanknasty heffas. Cova up yo cooch son!

i think the show will be coming to its natural end in a few seasons, b/c at this point it's just a bunch basic chicks coming in and trying to outdo the last season. this season seems to be filled with ppl who were too lame to make the previous seasons. they get upset and want to fight over any little thing, but no one ever really fights (unless theyre jumping someone of course). the only reason i'm still watching is bc i wanna see the twins get their comeupins for jumping elease and being generally crazy.

Music that glorifies violence, a music industry where you have greater credibility if you go to jail. Musicians who are considered "soft" if they sing about feelings and not money, sex or violence. All these things get hyped, these people get paid, get their "15 minutes of fame", with no apparent repercussions. You have to expect the level of incivility, disrespect and violence you see these days.

Not to mention the lack of respect for teachers but yet they are supposed to impart knowledge to children whose parents have abdicated their authority or worse yet, disrespect the teacher in front of the child. I agree Ninjarette, parents, now allow things that would have never been allowed when I was a child. There needs to be more "there is no need for you to have" vs "let me get you"(smartphone, iPad, computer, Xbox, etc.). Can possibly limit cyber bullying if you limit access.

We had problems in school, but not to the degree you see these days. The escalation is downright frightening.

I just know Turtles and a few of the other ladies here seem to like it. I did purchase the first book in that series from Audible though..haven't listened yet. So stuck on my vampire and paranormal romance novels..I can't seem to focus on listening to anything else.. and I'm backed up with like 12 books already! Still haven't even finished listening to the latest Alex Cross novel..ugh!

Hope you enjoy the show!
Thanks, I will! It has Lenny Kravitz, so I can't hate it.

It's sort of like Battle Royale.

Think of dystopian North America post major war and costal changes from global warming. Throw in a Theseus style tribute plot, and you're set.
