Maybe she was a healer. Those don't just grow on trees, you know.

But kids never lie about their ages online! Its always those adult predators. Won't someone think of those honest angels?

I don't know about that. Healers aren't too bad to find, but a decent tank? I'd run away with a chick if she could tank.

they might not grow on trees, but some of them ARE trees.

She's 42 and has 4 children. I wonder if any of them are near her "boyfriend's" age.
 
2010-01-01 01:22:04 AM  
Honestly, they're both better looking than I expected.
 
2010-01-01 01:24:32 AM  
She's not bad looking at all. She could do a lot better than a 16 year old.
 
2010-01-01 01:33:53 AM  
Sergeant Robert Allan of the Barrie police said the couple was found Thursday afternoon at a Future Shop in Orillia after a tip from the public. The teenager had told Ms. Price he was 20 - the age of consent in Canada is 16 - and police said she will not face criminal charges.

Of course, if they had been found in the US, the fact that the 16-year-old lied about his age would make no difference - she'd be looking at 20 years and a sex offender tag for the rest of her life.

That was my reaction as well, if she had a decent personality and wasn't going to get all stabby on me I could see myself sharing some chablis in a chateau with her.

It's not what I expected. I expected the 42 year old to be a guy.

2010-01-01 02:16:16 AM  
Neither of them look bad, so that was unexpected. Both appear to be in decent physical condition too.

At least the woman isn't facing a life of "sexual offender" labels from this....

If this had been turned around (16-year-old girl telling a guy she's 20), and if it had been in the USA, the guy would be labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life.

I was genuinely surprised to find out this was not my coworker.

I love how completely nonchalant the 16-year-old seemed to go about his business. I'd hate to play poker against him.

Teenagers are farking evil. I used to be one. You can't underestimate them, predict them, or really control one.
 
2010-01-01 04:06:40 AM  
And this being Canada the police accept the guy lying about his age and let the woman go home with no charges filed. In the United States? Oh yeah, there'd be a mug shot.
 
2010-01-01 05:04:49 AM  
so the kid was addicted to the internet and computers, so his parents got his a lap top for Christmas, i see...Also, if there were no charges filed and nothing happened to the kid, why did anyone write about it at all and post their picture?

/i'm not drunk, just exhausted

WhyteRaven74: And this being Canada the police accept the guy lying about his age and let the woman go home with no charges filed. In the United States? Oh yeah, there'd be a mug shot.


Since the age of consent in Canada is 16 it wouldn't have made much difference if he had lied or given his real age.

Of course, as you said, charges likely would have been filed in the U.S. unless the young man lived in a state where the age of consent is 16.

FTA: For more than a year, Ms. Kane said her son has played the game "every waking hour," and has rarely attended school because of the addiction.

I think we've found the problem. No one in the house was playing the role of "adult."

I'm sure this is exactly what would happen if it was a 42 year old man and a 16 year old girl.

Sgt. Allan said neither the teen or Ms. Price expressed any remorse.

Don't expect remorse from people who haven't broken the law. It just makes you sound silly. If you don't like what they are doing change the law instead.

AntiNorm: If this had been turned around (16-year-old girl telling a guy she's 20), and if it had been in the USA, the guy would be labeled a sex offender for the rest of his life.


And rightfully so. The hypothetical guy has failed. He's engaging in a sexual relationship with someone he doesn't know very well. Regardless of what a girl says, there are other ways of at least having a clue about her age.

How long has she been driving a car?
When did she graduate?
How far back do her stories and conversation go? Can she remember 1995?

2010-01-01 08:07:31 AM  
I feel for the kid. When I was 14 I slept with my 25 year old science teacher. It remains one of the greatest moments of my life. And probably the most average 35 seconds of hers....

This kinda happened to me when I was 16.

The main differences were that we didn't have WoW at the time (LpMUD) and the woman was actually a 22 year old college student from Penn State. I hopped on a greyhound down to College Station and hooked up with her (got laid like literally 15 minutes after getting off the bus, it was awesome). Then we shagged like rabbits every day for like a week or so.

Eventually however my Dad figured out where I had gone and contacted the girl somehow without me knowing and basically threatened her with the law if she didn't put me right back on a bus back home.

All in all it ended up pretty good for me, because really I think that despite all the sex with college girl thing going on, it would have ended up badly. The only thing I really didn't like is that my Dad and the girl both kept the parental interference stuff from me, so for the longest time I thought chicks were just psycho and could go hot and cold on you at the drop of a hat (one second giving you a bj, then later on in the afternoon telling you to leave).

I mean, yeah, now as an adult I know that this can happen, but I didn't need to learn it so quickly at 16, especially after a week of really hot sex.

I was actually surprised at how angry I was when I found out the truth. I guess Dad just didn't want me to get pissy with him - so it also taught me another valuable lesson, even your parents can be cowards.

Life lessons, etc.

THIS!

Also FTFA: "We thought he was managing it well, but eventually he was back to his old habits," said Ms. Kane. "It turned out to be not so great advice."

You punish him once, it doesn't stick, so you just throw up your hands, give up and blame someone else for your failure as a parent?

I'd run away with a guy who could tank, but I don't need to since my husband is one. It looks great though because the tank is my old character before I got my own account, so it looks like two chicks playing together.

I would like to thank everyone here at Fark for not turning this in to some type of Aggie joke. Right when I read she was an A&M graduate I let out a sigh.
