Yes, that makes it much less threatening and controlling.
 
2012-03-07 02:37:31 PM
For someone who only wanted to communicate via Facebook because he didn't want his words twisted, and someone who wanted to show his daughter that you it would be wrong to profit from this, he's totally bought into the AWing, fatass Kardashian-level and all.

Hopefully, he'll have his "Balloon Boy" moment. Soon.

Oh, screw it all. He'll have his own redneck hillbilly tech support show on Discovery. When's the next flight off this planet?

Well backing up her data just proves as much as a backwater rube he looks to be, he still has some tech savvy.

I still liked the swift hand of justice he served on his kid.

Would I have done it? No! ...I don't own a gun

2012-03-07 03:38:17 PM
I thought he was never going to do an interview. Oh wait, d-bags love the fame. He's a second rate Joe-the-plumber.
 
2012-03-07 03:38:19 PM
Pretty sure one of the first things he says in that video is that he works in IT, so not too surprising. Kinda funny in a weird way.

A 5 lb sledge will do the job just as easily.

/wonder if he imaged the drive or just copied the user folder

That guy is still retarded. Maybe even more retarded than I originally thought because this means he took time to actually think this pretty well through.

/such a wasteful society we live in...

Wait, backing up a hard drive before you put a bullet through it is considered "tech savvy" these days?

I'm much more "tech savvy". I don't back up my data because I don't give a fark about it.

Ok, I do back up some data, but that shiat's not even on the network.

They should make it a kind of Redneck-Nanny 911, where parents of rebellious teens can write in asking for help and this guy can show up at their house and shoot up the kids' things until they comply.

/I'd watch it
//You would too
 
2012-03-07 03:41:58 PM
Those who missed the video he's an IT guy.

2012-03-07 03:42:58 PM
He calls himself an IT EXPERT...

Why not remove the hard drive first?

If you look at his bullet spread, he missed the 2.5 inch drive so his "$130 in software" is intact

If I were her dad, I would have made her destroy it herself

I don't think that's what is going to deter them. Just sayin'

I'm guessing you're a troll, but can you imagine what an awesome gift that would be for an under-privileged youth? I would have loved a computer when I was a kid and I'm sure there are plenty of kids even these days whose parents can't afford one.
 
2012-03-07 03:44:39 PM
Kids - and hell, a lot of adults - occasionally need to be reminded that somebody else (usually their parents, or the government, or their much put-upon spouse) is carrying their weight + 1. This guy gave his kid a rather overly dramatic, somewhat drama queen-ey reality check, but it was a reality check and I still approve.

After all, it was his damned laptop.

Remembering to always back up is just another lesson that everybody has to learn eventually.
 
2012-03-07 03:45:18 PM
I haven't been following this story, but did he just shoot the screen?

Forget it from me. I gave up on having an opinion once everyone declared him a hero, his wife asked him to shot one for her, cops patted him of the back and gave him a case of beer, and CPS gave him "Father of the Year" honors.

Doctor Phil trolled him hard and good, and yanked him into the spotlight. That's why he's on the AW tour.

He actually owns a success high tech firm. He's not a rube he's a M.Sc with a gun.
 
2012-03-07 03:46:46 PM
He shoulda been shooting all the snacks in the house. Am I right farkers!

DNRTFA, but I think he just physically removed the drive before he shot the laptop all to hell. You guys that are thinking this guy is imaging hard drives in his spare time are precious.
 
2012-03-07 03:48:31 PM
Shooting a laptop because his daughter posted an opinion online. You know, parenting.

/the internet has replaced diaries
//teens think they know everything, film at 11
 
2012-03-07 03:48:39 PM
Well, he's not a monster...
 
2012-03-07 03:49:41 PM
is this the same guy that said he'd never go on TV to talk about it?

2012-03-07 03:51:12 PM
Hmmm...I didn't get the impression that he went looking for attention. his video was a reply to a snarky post his daughter put up on FB. Once it was online and went viral, teh media contacted him.

/just sayin.

He's in IT. I've no doubt he simply pulled the hard drive.
 
2012-03-07 03:52:35 PM

darkscout: Those who missed the video he's an IT guy.


This. He couldn't help hisself.

He's also a redneck, so he couldn't resist trying to resolve an issue by shooting something.

Redneck and IT support is probably a frequent combination in the south east of the United States. It certainly is in the northern parts of Australia. Julian Assange? Townsville. Same as the Powerpuff Girls.

THIS IS A SEVERE WEATHER ALERT!!!

The NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE at Fark Headquarters has issued a BLIZZARD WARNING for this thread through 12:00AM.

DETAILS: A flurry of special snowflakes will increase throughout the thread, building to heavy special snowfall by this afternoon. As their sense of entitlement combines with an eagerness to share what they learned in Psych 101 last semester, wind speeds will increase to whargarble strength, creating whiteout conditions in many areas. Travel in this thread is not advised.

This has been a SEVERE WEATHER ALERT. Stay tuned to Fark.com for further weather updates.

Time consuming, mildly inconvenient on a laptop, requires hardware that non-heat-seeking laptops rarely have vs. a minute with a screwdriver? He pulled the hard drive.

THIS.

Seriously, if you're so incapable of handling children that you shoot their things when they don't obey RIGHT THIS SECOND!!!111!!1!, you might want to go forwarn CPS that you've got only a few months before you start abusing them.

/Really, this is the entire mentality behind abuse: You Are Mine, You Are Not Obeying Me, Ergo I Punish You.
//A normal parent is the one who doesn't feel the need to not only break into locked FB posts, but shoot things because their teenager whined on FB.

Youtube/Google Ad-Revenue question:

Whats 30+ million page views worth in add share revenue?

I know like 30k is worth about 40 cents, is 30 million views worth $4000 proportionately?
