Skynet will not arise from military drones becoming self-aware. Skynet will arise as Chuck E. Cheese animatronic band members are given more sophisticated programming and weaponry to implement Directive One: Protect The Tickets At All Cost

I don't think you can blame the selling of beer. Beer is sold at my favorite bars, grocery stores, and gas stations, but I've never seen a brawl break out at any of these places. Even at a bar frequented mostly by garbage men when a friend of mine bartended there.

The thing about those locations is that the folks who drink there generally aren't parents who are stressed out by being surrounded by hundreds of kids running amok while they're drinking.

/and anyone who drinks at a grocery store or a gas station probably has bigger problems than noisy children
 
2013-08-04 10:47:49 AM
They might as well start calling that place "The Id Center." It's intended to turn only children into wild animals, but it usually bleeds onto adults as well.
 
2013-08-04 10:48:29 AM
Well, because Fark You, that's why.
 
2013-08-04 10:49:32 AM
On the contrary, I think the fact that they sell beer is what keeps people from going nuts in that place even sooner than they would without it. If you're over 12 years old, an altered mental state is required in that place if you don't want to become homicidal.

The incident made the rounds of social media, notably because a woman appeared to fight while holding a baby.

I don't see an issue here.  A baby makes a decent enough shield if you don't have your barricade of eternity equipped.

I had to go to Chuck E. Cheese for my grandson several months back, on a Saturday. The noise of the place reminded me of standing next to a jet aircraft. Getting a table was a chore. Many of them reserved for birthday parties. The pepperoni pizza we got was just awful. Worse than the cheap ones you can get frozen at the supermarket. The games were expensive, difficult to find an open one to even play, and you needed hundreds of tickets to get anything beyond the items you can usually get out of a gumball machine. I can see why the trip is so stressful for parents.

All that said, my 4 year old grandchild had a great time running around and I enjoyed that he did.

"Many adults have poor impulse control," he said. "They frequently fail to consider the consequences of their actions even when kids are present."

That's the reason many of these people have kids in the first place.  Not surprising fights can break out when you put a bunch of strangers with these traits together in the same place.

The one and only time I've darkened the door of one of those places was many, many moons ago, for my daughter's birthday party.  She was turning 8, or so. It was apparently the coolest place to have a party, and invite all of your friends  So sure, whatever, Princess!

When I finally sat down at a table, looked at a menu and saw they served beer - I looked straight up and thought, "There really IS a GOD!"
 
2013-08-04 11:02:26 AM
Are you suggesting that they should stop selling beer at Chuck E. Cheese, there, subs?  Because I'm thinking that'd be a bad idea.

The last one in Brookfield that made FARK was over a child being to slow selecting prizes for their tickets. Curiously enough that Chuck E. Cheese gave up its liquor license in 2008.

They're poor and forced to live in the ghetto. Happens in trailer trash hang outs too.

Isn't it just that white people have mostly abandoned it and it's more of a minority thing now?

They don't sell beer here.  I live in south Louisiana, too, where everywhere sells beer.

Chuck E cheese is rather cheap place to take a kid for a night, birthday party and games, so it attracts to the trashy class. When the kids run vampid without supervision and the parents don't care, you can bet there's going to be a problem and to mix alcohol with it is just gets worse.
Combine alcohol with stupidity its a combination that just runs wild no matter where you go, doesn't matter what skin color they are. Another thing that doesn't help is the fact most of the staff is under 18 just looking to pick up some extra bucks, instead of spotting problems they just go about and don't even care.

Doesn't matter the skin color, CeC seems to attract all the village idiots.
 
2013-08-04 11:17:01 AM

Oh_Enough_Already: Fighting at Chuck E. Cheeses is remarkable only because it's one of the few places (if one is lucky) where white folks get to witness firsthand black folks acting how they normally do.

It doesn't matter what the event or location is (funeral, wedding, graduation ceremony, birthday party, anti-violence rally, etc) but anytime you have a large gathering of black folks it will devolve into violence.


Be careful they ban you on FARK when you speak the truth. The folks around here like to pretend.

Misconduc: Doesn't matter the skin color, CeC seems to attract all the village idiots.


Exactly. A lot of folks point to CC brawls to feed their confirmation bias. If you filled it with black, university educated, republican voting professionals and their kids it is highly unlikely they would all of a sudden go thug life on the place. It's like a dive bar for kids.

Naw, they stopped banning racists a couple years ago. Guess the beer money was just too tempting to Drew so he let the persecuted whiteys start running wild.

Asians........you never see Asians brawling at a Chuck E. Cheese. Come to think of it you never see them brawling anywhere unless they're defending their business. Who do they think they are......coming here and working hard, going to school, not causing problems......I got my eye on them.

They sell cheap beer.  I have a theory that cheep beer makes you want to fight.  In my town, where I used to be a cop, we have a German style beer garden across the street from a place that plays banjo music.  The German place sells only expensive imports.  The Honky Top sells watered down cheap American stuff.  We had fights at the Honky Top almost every night, but never once at the German place.  It's a quality issue.

Wait, I agreed with the previous poster.  I pointed out that the internet shows a disproportionate amount of black people fighting specifically a Chuck E Cheese.  That makes me racist.

I know you're having a bit of fun, but i can't resist. Do you consider Samoans "Asian"? They're always up for a good brawl. Filiponos aren't averse to a little fun violence, either.

Alright, that's pretty good.

The last (and only) time I took my daughter there was when she was about nine years old. It was everything you'd expect from a CEC, minus any fights.

As we were leaving, I said I hope she enjoyed herself, because that was the last time I was ever stepping foot in that place.

It hurt her, but it had to be said.

The reason why you see more black people fighting in CC is because the poor white people don't go to them anymore... likely because of the poor black people. Go to where the poor white people hang out and you'll see scraps too.

It's too expensive to get drunk off expensive imports. For the cost of one Westvleteren twelve you could pound a 24 pack or two Milwaukee's best. That gives you enough liquid courage to finally wander over to stocky dwarf giving you the stink-eye from the side of the bar and give him a sucker punch. Only to get tossed out of the bar because in reality you just sucker punched the jukebox.

Hell where I live its a 50/50 chance whether its trailer trash or ghetto kids coming into chuck e cheese. Put two lovely groups of uneducated together and it doesn't take much to light that ifre.

/wonder if that guy who was a manager at chuck e cheese is still on fark, bet he had some awesome stories to tell

//my favorite was from my nephew who worked at CeC for extra cash when he was 16, some trailer trash came in with 6 kids and the boyfriend was clearly on meth. Not even one hour goes by, the kid gets railed in the face by some other kid and the two parents exchange words. Next thing you know coke and pizza were thrown, cops were called - you would think meth head boyfriend left his stash at home, nope he was tweaking so hard the cops searched his van and found loads of goodies, poor nephew had to stay and clean up - he quit the job two weeks later

Why are there so many brawls at Chuck E. Cheese? I dunno. Why are there so many brawls at the old mall that white people stopped going to when the new mall was built 20 years ago?

If I'm in an unfamiliar neighborhood and I come across a Chuck E. Cheese, I know I need to watch my surroundings and hide any valuables.
