Yeah, but seriously, though. That's a pretty sharp butter knife.

that's what I was thinking. How do you stab someone with a butter knife? It doesn't have a pointed blade, man. It'd be like stabbing him with a spatula.

Noooo... I think the tag is for everyone involved, everyone in near proximity, hell, everyone within the city limits.

What the fark, people.

He was "rushed" to the hospital because of a small puncture wound? Caused by a butter knife? Slap some gauze on it and get back to gaming. Pansy.

csb: I was younger than that when I was screwing around with a pocket knife. Accidentally stabbed myself in the soft flesh between thumb and index finger. Damn near went through my hand. My parents weren't home so a neighbor cleaned it with iodine and bandaged it. Still have that scar.

ps: waiting for the followup saying that the parents had hid the console because the kid was turning into a little brat over it.

Tag also applies to the person picking the picture to go with the story. An original Xbox? Seriously? That console is as old as one of the kids involved!

FTA : "That boy is a very good child," neighbor Doreen White, 62, said of the victim, who goes to school with her granddaughter.

"He doesn't come out from his house unless he's riding his bike.



Someone should take away that kids bike.

I could see this happening over a PS4 or even a PS3, but a over a farking XBOX?  C'mon.

"And where was their adult supervision?"

Probably not around all the time because they aren't five farking years old.

Years ago, when my wife and I were dating she called me frantic over a cut. She had used force with a butter knife to try and seperate frozen hotdogs. She gave herself a decent deep cut with it but from the slicing motion, not the stab.

Accidentally stabbed himself, my ass! I know what he was going for when he found out he'd surely be grounded:

Not only was he "rushed" to the hospital, "He was listed in stable condition."

It required actual admission to the hospital?  It must have been Crocodile Dundee's butter knife.

Fail tag is for the stab happy kid, not the parents alone. By that age, you should know that stabbing/killing people is not such a good idea whether or not you have parents or guardians around. We live in a society that's already surrounded by all sorts of media. It's near impossible to claim that the kid didn't know that stabbing people is bad because you can definitely learn about what's acceptable in society by just watching tv, movies, playing video games, or reading the news. Not stabbing people is not like some kind of practice that's only limited to a small group of obscure people or religious group.

Some people are simply assholes. It doesn't matter whether they grew up in a good environment or in a shiatty one. It doesn't matter if they had parents or guardians who taught them what is and isn't allowed in society. There are simply people who firmly believe that they can do what they want and simply justify their actions with "Because I want to".

If your kids need supervision when they're 13 I think CPS should be getting involved.

To be fair, it sounds like the 'victim' kid actually ended up stabbing himself.  So, first kid could've whipped out a butter knife, just horsing around, because he's actually smart enough to know a butter knife isn't really all that dangerous.
Second kid panics, or they're just screwing around, and he trips or something, and actually manages to hurt himself o it.  Which is kind of impressive, actually.

Young boys do dumb stuff; trust me, I used to be one.

That is really, really stupid. It's called a PS4, kids. Only $399.99 at a store near you.

But yet I bet you whinge that kids are always oversupervised, never get to play out side, helicopter parents blah blah, back when I was a kid we played outside...

Was it a 360 or an Xbox One? Totally different situations.
 
2013-12-16 07:03:25 AM
So what? My friend once chased me around the house with a butcher's knife, and for no reason at all.

"I'm shocked," said Don Grant. "Twelve, 13-year-old kids getting into an issue?"

12 and 13 year old kids getting into an argument over something?  What is this, the apocalypse?  Somebody get Ric Romero on this case, stat.

This thread should spawn lots of CSBs.

I had a friend, growing up in Michigan, who could have been a caricature of Eric Cartman.  In fact, he had the same first name as Cartman.  He had nearly everything he ever wanted except for my Legend of Zelda which he stole and hid for six months at his house until his sister found it.

I had another "friend", Andy, in sixth or seventh grade who would not return my SMB 2.  I actually had to call in my mom on that one, because after two weeks of him "forgetting" to bring it to school,  I was getting desperate.  I probably would've had a hard time kicking his ass, so that's what I had to do.

Citation needed.  Actually I'm a proponent of the "video games don't cause the problem, shiatty parenting causes the problem" camp.

Nice reference. Needs more Flaming Carrot, though.

I managed to give myself a pretty good slice with one once, when I was in high school. I was stupidly using it to help start getting the peel off an orange when it slipped and got me across the hand. Sadly, it didn't get me out of school that day. Hurt pretty good, too.

I have a wife, and she has an alienware computer (sitting next to mine) and we play games like LOL and EVE.

Go cry yourself to sleep.

I would say that 11 and 12 is old enough for kids to be total dicks without it being a parental fail.

You can stab somebody with a hammer, with enough force.

Enough force applied and it will enter flesh.

I fell out of a tree and landed on a 3 inch stump and tore a hole in my leg. The stump was dull as fark and hurt like hell. I would have rather been stabbed by a butter knife.

True, but if you stab someone with a hammer, you're no longer 'stabbing' so much as 'air pistoning'.
