rkane1: When that kid makes it to the adult world he will be mushed into a pulp...or pulped into mush...but definitely one or the other.


Doubtful. With parents like that, that kid won't make it to "the real world." He'll instead make it to a sandbox, carefully walled in by contacts, palm greasing, and intimidation, cushioned until he, himself, becomes a douche with a small child. He will then perpetuate the practice for his kid, because that's how you're supposed to do it (as far as he knows.) If & when he makes it to "the real world", he will then manufacture a disaster that he can't escape through money, bullying, bluster, or connections - he will become confused, demoralized, and withdrawn, a shame to his entire family line.

He's Dubya.

doglover: In ancient Athens, someone could potentially be voted into exile for a decade once a year. If they got 6000 votes against them from the people of Athens, away they were sent.

I vote we bring back the practice. If the community doesn't like you, away you go.


Wouldn't that just split America in half?  The reasonable half and the crazy half would each vote the other out, and we'd just have Civil War II.  And then the Canuckistanis would descend on the resulting power vacuum.

doglover: I also want to bring back judicial duels. Not for justice, but expedience. You're mad at me, I'm mad at you, let's kick the shysters to the curb and just have a good old fashioned sword fight. Much more decent way of life.


I could work with this.  No, really.  I could be a professional second, or maybe even get paid to fight as a stand-in.  I'm liking this idea.

I wonder what the kid thinks of all this. Either he's a sniveling brat who made his dad get coach fired, or he's a decent, if clumsy, kid who is embarrassed and ashamed of these shenanigans by the folks who are supposed to be providing good examples. I would hope that if I ever did anything so monumentally asinine for my own kids, that they would call me an asshole then go off to live with their aunt and uncle.

iheartscotch: Any person? The politicians wouldn't last very long.


Don't be so sure.

6000 was based on the then population of Athens, not some magical number ex recto. Even the most hated politicians by one group are often beloved of another. Not to mention you have to vote for someone in your township. Even when I lived a stone's throw from Santorum's mother back in PA, he was never residing in the same township as me. It's a decent system and, with some basic rules and limitations, it could work in the US.

Sucks that these parents couldn't just use the internet, or that they are such mooseknuckles that named their kids Ethan and Asher or that their last names are both their parents names hyphenated. You can find a lot out on the internet. For example, anyone can email the AD that fired him at m­ar­kb­e­rk­o­w­i­tz[nospam-﹫-backwards]s­pn­otse­w­*o­rg. You can also find out that these parents paid $565,000 for their house and were sued by MasterCard in 2010. Hope they didn't write that PI a check!
