HOW WAS BABBY WIRED?

catstashfever: Those dead-eyed kids in the video make me think of those dead-eyed baristas at Starbucks.

Except, wait, one laughed. Retracted.


What kind of Starbuckseses do you go to? At every one I've gone to, the baristas have been unsettlingly cheerful.

So I guess I shouldn't tell you guys I gave my daughter a $25 gift card to Starbucks for her 3rd birthday...

Her mom got her hooked on the Chai Lattes they have there.

That made me want to ram my face through the wall.

*fapfapfap*

jk...

Nice story but I still think it's a little wonked to be pushing a child in a stroller through the streets while riding a segway. More out of concern for the child than anything else. Overcoming adversity is one thing but there are limits.

I've seen that pic before and I just won't accept that it isn't staged or shooped.

That level of of stupid and douchey could never exist simultaneously in such a concentrated point in space and time without sucking the entire universe into a dense little ball which then starts licking it's own anus fervently in self congratulatory release.

Your post made me lol, hard, but you did forget one even worse scenario - the stroller could have one of those ankle-biting dogs in it. I'm not sure when I'm going to snap, but I can assure you that a lady 'walking' her dog in a stroller will be involved somehow.

You know, I'm over being outraged at pictures like that. This happens so often on the net, you see a "get angry at this single photo without looking into the details behind it or considering the reasons that might have caused it" picture, especially with a smug, mocking caption, and you're supposed to laugh at the person as inferior. It doesn't matter that the person may have perfectly good reasons, or that the photo might be easily explainable with a little thought, no, we have to attack the person relentlessly. Then, finally the rational explanation comes out, and those few who actually ever hear of it feel bad for their initial outrage/derision/smugness.

Personally, I just skip the last bit, think up what could be a reasonable explanation, and unless evidence to the contrary comes out, just go with that. Saves on the outrage overload.

itazurakko: Ed Willy: Eh, I've seen parents take their kids to coffee shops for years and usually give them a hot chocolate. Plus, no one would complain about giving children tea, so why should coffee be different?

Seriously, this is new?

Most coffeehouses have plenty of MILK on the premises already, kids can drink it plain or get it frothed up with a bit of vanilla in it (cool, because most people can't do that at home, so it's a novelty!) or whatever, plus most places also sell juice of various kinds. That's all in addition to the hot chocolate and chocolate milk.

The coffeehouse I go most often has tons of people studying in it, sometimes there's kids with parents too, also reading or coloring or whatever, as long as they're being decent quietish patrons who fit in, doesn't bother me.


I would rather give my kids coffee than milk from some animal. That said, they prefer tooth-rotting apple juice.
 
2012-02-19 03:53:51 AM  

Mija: How about neither? Water, juice and milk made my children happy. Decaf is not "fake coffee". Children do not need to be rnning things like coffee and soda through their kidneys. People are so damn stupid these days!


No. They don't need toys, holidays, school, or anything more than minimal nutrition to ensure growth and survival so that they can toil in the fields. They don't need fun, they don't need anything. They don't even need to survive, we have plenty.

So, what's your point. Or, just fess up, and admit you're just a knee-jerk reactionary who feels inclined, capable, and entitled to determine the actions of other people. It would be much simpler and honest if you did.

Do you have children? Are you a research scientist specializing in pediatrics? Are you an expert on the effects of caffeine on children specifically concerning their kidneys? Do you have evidence to suggest that this is specifically harmful and authority to decided which harms are acceptable or the rights of the parents? Is there a limit to your authority to decide what children need and don't need to pass through their kidneys?

Or, more specifically, do you have some moral authority to decide these things? Life is, after all, the leading cause of death and is the cause of 100% of the physical ailments a person might suffer. Do the health risks overcome the added benefit of time spent in a healthy relationship with their parents?

What specifically grants you the authority or expertise to decide what children do or do not need? Provide citations and your credentials.

maddermaxx: To be fair, I have NEVER seen a babychino (which is a silly name for it) with actual coffee in it, decaf or otherwise, anywhere I've been here in Australia. I'll admit I've only bothered to check when I was out with my cousins, and they had their young kids with them. Perhaps some people in America heard of the idea, and because it had the "chino" suffix, thought it had to contain coffee, which is pretty stupid. Young children, in my experience, tend to hate the bitter taste of coffee anyway. That might not true for all young kids, of course, but I'm sure most would far prefer just foamed milk with chocolate to actual coffee.


To be fair in return, we here are victims of American "journalism", which might explain a lot. Your version, which I assume to be accurate, sounds a lot more palatable (literally and figuratively). Thanks.

Whoa. Down, mommy. Maybe you should try a babycino instead the bile you've been drinking.
 
2012-02-19 04:26:34 AM  
Caffeine doesn't hype kids up, it slows them down.
 
2012-02-19 05:03:00 AM  
A babyccino is just steamed milk with chocolate sprinkles on top. No actual coffee. Get them for my kids all the time as it allows me to get a cup of coffee from a cafe without them whining for a cookie, a hot chocolate or anything with sugar.

I don't think it's a hipster thing; rather it's a parent thing. Next time you come up from the basement, be sure to ask yours.
 
2012-02-19 05:30:36 AM  
Jeepers H Crackers, WTF?

Even the article says "Babyccinos are made from either steamed milk and foam, or - for the gourmand tot - spiked with a shot of decaf espresso"

Babyccinos are, the vast majority of the time, simply frothy milk so that the child can have a fun drink while mummy or daddy enjoys their coffee. I suspect that the article has highlighted a very rare occurrence of adding the decaf espresso shot. I've NEVER seen anyone put a decaf shot in a Babyccino - why would you, the kid would much prefer lovely frothy milk to bitter coffee?

People aren't doing this to be hip, they're doing it because (God forbid) they're spending time with their children but not spending 100% of that time doing exclusively child-based activities. It's a good way of teaching your child to behave in public.

What the hell is wrong with people?
 
2012-02-19 05:34:26 AM  
Getting them just plain milk is fine. Even the sprinkles are okay.

Putting espresso (even the decaf stuff) is kind of crossing the line.

The only thing I find wrong is that stupid parents are spending 7 bucks on a kids drink too shut them up. They seriously lack such parental control that instead of teaching thier kids how to behave in a public place they bribe them with foam.

How about this? "Mommy is gonna sit here and have a drink for 15 minutes. Here's some milk. You need to stay quite and behave.....Or I'll take you home and paint your backside red!!!"

It's sad seeing parents that have already let their toddlers know they are in control. They seriously already lost a battle of will with a 3 year-old.

BlippityBleep: GoldSpider: BlippityBleep: austerity101: Seems more like yuppies to me.

hipsters = yuppies - motivation.+ entitlement issues

Like OWS?

no, hipsters may take part in OWS, but so do a large number of other groups. OWS is asking for fairness, not handouts.


It's only fair that someone else pay for my college loans beacuse I can't find a job after getting my degree in Ancient Cave Art Interpretation. (Handout)

Sure I can get a job at minimum wage but that's not fair. I don't care if a minimum wage job in the US puts me in the top 1% worldwide...It's still not fair!!! (I'd rather have a handout)

It's only fair that I pay no taxes and receive free money from rich people! I've determined how much people deserve for their hard work...and rich people don't deserve that much!!! (I need a handout)

My idea of fair is that people should all pay an equal % of taxes on what they earn. Your idea of fair is purely arbitrary and based on what you think each person is entitled to. You arbitrarily decide that a person has made enough and want to take the rest....And you OWS people have the nerve to call others greedy????

I highly doubt many parents would bother spending $7 on a babychino (as I mentioned above, I still think it's a stupid name for it). Where my cousins go to, it's usually 50c with a normal coffee, because they can just put a little bit of the foam aside rather than foaming new milk for a new cup.

Meanwhile, you really think normal kids will sit down and stay quite while mommys having a coffee without something to do? Either you don't have kids, or you run your family like some 50s military school. You don't treat your kids as seperate people who need to sit down, shut up and do nothing for fear of beating, you should include them in your own activities, including going to a coffee shop, and teach them how to behave and be a part of society.

I'm raising my 6 year-old nephew for a variety of reasons...as a single male. He can sit quietly through an 2 hour meal if need be, with only a few whispers about behaving. He knows that there is a time and place where he can run wild and where he has to behave. I don't coddle him and buy him a freaking "whipped milk" when he misbehaves. I reward him after the fact when he does behave. I may take him to the movies and explain that it's because he behaved at the doctor's office 2 weeks ago. At the same time he knows that if he crosses the bounds of acceptable behaviour repeatedly, he is likely to get a spanking and sent to bed.

It's funny how you, that likely can't control your kid, has to jump to conclusions that I beat my kid and treat him like he's in military school. And by my original post, I do include him in my own activities and I expect him to behave. That's how I teach him to behave and be a part of society. I don't reward him with some "whipped-milk with sugar on top" for not throwing a fit.

It's fun ...


Firstly, kudos for raising a kid on your own, it's a hard thing to do.

But 3 things for you to think about:

1) You mentioned that you would give a kid some milk, and tell him to sit down and shut up. Then, you chastise anyone who would also give their kids milk while having a coffee. That doesn't trigger any little bells about hypocrisy at all?

2) You're saying they're bribing their kids, and that their kids must be in control because they're getting their kids milk, then say how you reward good behaviour by giving out treats and trips to the cinema - but those are wholesome and justified, because you're doing it, but anyone else doing the same thing is simply rewarding their kids bad behaviour (because all kids but the one you're raising MUST be badly behaved). Still no hypocrisy bells? Thinking it's ok to reward your own kids good behaviour, but other parents must lack parental controls to do the same?

3) Your advocated method of raising kids is "You need to stay quite and behave.....Or I'll take you home and paint your backside red!!!", but then you say I "jump to conclusions that I beat my kid and treat him like he's in military school". You know, I don't care if you punish your kid with a little smack once in a while, it's not my business, but don't say I was jumping to conclusions, when you said the very words yourself. I just think it's weird that your first thought is to threaten the kid when you sit down for a cup of coffee - do you do that with every request you make of him? - and that any parent not doing likewise is a Bad Parent.

Just my 2c. Now, I'm off to bed. G'night.

Giving a trip to the "cinema".....or movies.....after the fact is not a bribe. I'm talking about parents that can't control their kids without offering bribes before or when their child acts a fool in public. One reinforces good behaviour after the fact...the other reinforces bad behaviour by rewarding it with whipped milk and sugar.

Sorry that you are incapable of seeing that simple distinction.

Do you get your ass kicked often or just once in a while or are you really a coward who just makes stuff up on the internet in hopes that people will think you're tough.

You're obviously not aware of this but you're just a mostly anonymous pixel on the screen. You can actually be honest. I absolutely can't even fathom how shallow you have to be to be in a completely anonymous setting and still be dishonest.

It is like the one place where, even though you're able to, honesty makes sense and dishonesty is completely idiotic. At least in the real world if you're a liar there are some potential benefits. Here? You can't possibly even feel better about yourself no matter how good a series of lies you have for yourself because you still know the truth.

You're not impressing anyone. You're demonstrating that you are a liar. Your statements mean that. Not something clever like you're trolling. Not something moderately forgivable like you're drunk. No... Just a liar. Worse, a pointless liar who's so inept and so insecure that they feel a need to do so in the one environment where it is absolutely not going to benefit you in any way.

Seek help. Don't wake up and pretend you did it because you were trolling or drunk. Don't bother posting pretending that you're really like that. Just go get help, your insecurity is likely causing you all sorts of other problems in your life. You could, you know, also start being honest but I suspect you'll need a lot of therapy for that.

Pretty much everyone laughed at that guy though, so maybe he learned

Stupid breeder.

Hold on guys... We have a winner here. This guy's a REAL MAN!® He spits at funerals. He pushes old ladies down. He takes what he wants from children and women.

Okay...

Actually? The last comment indicates he's a gay but he's a manly one. Anyhow...

Do you get your ass kicked often or just once in a while or are you really a coward who just makes stuff up on the internet in hopes that people will think you're tough.

You're obviously not aware of this but you're just a mostly anonymous pixel on the screen. You can actually be honest. I absolutely can't even fathom how shallow you have to be to be in a completely anonymous setting and still be dishonest.

It is like the one place where, even though you're able to, honesty makes sense and dishonesty is completely idiotic. At least in the real world if you're a liar there are some potential benefits. Here? You can't possibly even feel better about yourself no matter how good a series of lies you have for yourself because you still know the truth.

You're not impressing anyone. You're demonstrating that you are a liar. Your statements mean that. Not something clever like you're trolling. Not something moderately forgivable like you're drunk. No... Just a liar. Worse, a pointless liar who's so inept and so insecure that they feel a need to do so in the one environment where it is absolutely not going to benefit you in any way.

Seek help. Don't wake up and pretend you did it because you were trolling or drunk. Don't bother posting pretending that you're really like that. Just go get help, your insecurity is likely causing you all sorts of other problems in your life. You could, you know, also start being honest but I suspect you'll need a lot of therapy for that.


Haha unspokenvoice is a stupid breeder! What's wrong, did the barista put caffienated coffee in your babychino, crotchfruit
keeping you up all night?

dickfreckle: Seriously, wtf is a decaf espresso? Will someone explain this to me? Seems a lot like sniffing flour at the same price as regular cocaine.


Some people like the taste, but do not want the caffeine. It's not really a mystery.


dickfreckle: This article makes me want to indiscriminately punch genitals.


Sounds to me like you might benefit from decaffeinated beverages.

Decaffeinated beverages still have caffeine.

just putting that out there...

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I'm confused about what makes this a "hipster" trend? Cappuccinos, coffee shops, and doing things with your kids all seem like generic norms of western society.


If anything, its kind of yuppy, much the opposite of hipster.

rga184: If anything, its kind of yuppy, much the opposite of hipster.


Is that true?

I've been thinking that hipster is larval stage for yuppie, or like that moth that changes colors over a few generations, a hipster is a yuppie on a differently barked tree.

I'm pretty sure they are just different instantiations of the same underlying phenomena both conforming to just a few molecules difference in their environments. Presumably, the hipster's environment is comparatively ferrous rich.

But I don't know.

Next will be lattes for their overpriced show dog companion.

Takitron: Her mom got her hooked on the Chai Lattes they have there.


Masala chai is just chai. It's not "chai latte" any more than café au lait is "café au lait latte," nor is it "chai tea" any more than café au lait is "café au lait coffee." It's just chai, full stop.

If, for some reason, you want to use extra syllables, then call it "masala chai."

Sorry, pet peeve.

So does chocolate.

I don't see too many people going into fits of rage whenever a parent gives their kid some candy. But change the method of sugar and caffeine to coffee instead of candy and people act like these kids are being poisoned.

Hipsters are yuppies before they have kids and/or mortgages.

Proto-yuppies.

crispyone: The only thing I find wrong is that stupid parents are spending 7 bucks on a kids drink too shut them up. They seriously lack such parental control that instead of teaching thier kids how to behave in a public place they bribe them with foam.

How about this? "Mommy is gonna sit here and have a drink for 15 minutes. Here's some milk. You need to stay quite and behave.....Or I'll take you home and paint your backside red!!!"

It's sad seeing parents that have already let their toddlers know they are in control. They seriously already lost a battle of will with a 3 year-old.


I can't comment on what they're charging in the US

But in Australia babychinos usually run about 50c or $1
So it basically is giving ther kid some milk to shut them up while mum and dad have a coffee.
plus they get to feel included and feel like it's a treat


We have had one barrista make one with real coffee. Fortunately caught it in time and took it back
"Is there coffee in this?"
"Uh.. yeah"
Cue: 'Are you an idiot?' look while a nearby waitress shakes her head at him.

iamrex: In those days there were exactly two Starbucks in the world.

Ah, March 31, 1971. It was a good day.

/ At least up until 6:10 PM
// Assuming an average growth rate of 1.138 Starbucks per day since March 30, 1971
/// 17000+ Starbucks in 14936 days
