Looks like the "Stupid" tag called in sick today.

Who the fark cares?  Isn't sex a part of the human experience (Farkers notwithstanding)?

The principle doesn't get invited any more. He knows why.

But Jean's motivational-speaking website makes little mention his adult-themed businesses.

He describes himself as an entrepreneur and says his most successful businesses were "the construction company and the exclusive lifestyle event."


Something tells me the problem is less "he doesn't advertise" and more "I don't know the contextual meaning of certain words."

I noticed the "swingers" get together took center stage in TFA. The whole goddamn bankruptcy fraud thing was an afterthought, apparently.

There's an abstinence-only joke in there somewhere and I will find it.

I had similar thoughts after reading the article. Who cares if he ran a "swingers vacation," this guy is an obvious scam artist.

Did he advise the kids to swing? Did he advise the kids to embezzle? Unless the answer is yes; Who gives a fark?

Why is sex such a terrible thing? So you and your SO want to have sex with other couples and single people. WHO THE FARK CARES? For f*cks sake, people. It's sex between two (or more) consenting adults. Why the f*ck does that make them bad people for wanting to enjoy life?

farking shiatstains, all of these overreactive, ignorant tightass club members..

People who think of children during a discussion about swinging are gross.

Which is why so many people get married.  The fairest negotiations end with nobody being content.

That's because the same type of people who get their fainting couches out when adults have sex are the ones who keep electing assholes who do the whole bankruptcy fraud thing 16 times before breakfast.

Did he have sex in a van, down by the river?

Going to post Farley, just missed it.


Apparently none of the parents have ever had sex before?  At least never had a wild weekend?  Jessh, WTF people...

I thought all motivational speakers were swindlers.  If they could earn an honest living, they'd be doing so already.

Did all these assholes in congress have sex with their clown-car vag wives through a hole in a sheet?

Based on the morals they actual show in day-to-day life and their general level of their hypocrisy, I'm guessing the history of their sex lives includes phrases like "Ride 'em cowboy," and trips to the the Double-D ranch.

Despite the inherent untrustworthiness of such a man (what_now already pointed out he IS a motivational speaker), why does it matter?  He showed up and gave his speech/schtick/spiel or whatever.  I'm sure there were at least a few other adults in the room who can attest to whether or not he did his job.

Why just adults?  I'm sure that there were trustworthy young people in the room that could have told you exactly what he said... salty or not.

A fair amount of Christian fundamentalists, who coincidentally also make up a fair amount of the people motivated and pissed off at education enough to run for and get elected to school boards, do not consider life to be something which should be enjoyed.  It is rather something to be endured, a lifetime of persecution and oppression meant to shape you into a better martyr.

And they especially don't think sex is something to be enjoyed.  It's just something they have to do to uphold the 'be fruitful and multiply' verse and to create a new generation of parishioners.  Sort of a 'lie back and think of Jesus' approach to the procreative act.

It isn't so much the swinging as the arrest, bankruptcy, and shady financial deals that is questionable for a so-called "life coach."

This and the fact that they invited a self-billed "life coach" in the first place tells enough about the school.

At 35 years old it has yet to be a part of  my human experience. :(

Did he advice the kids to commit fraud and give the instructions on how to do it?

I think the whole "scammed investors out of almost 200k$ and got out of it by bribing the one that called him on it" is probably the bit that disqualifies him from being allowed to give life advice more than anything.  That's pretty bad.

This is America, after all. The only things that are immoral are being poor and/or having genitals.

I went to Upper Dublin.  The money that school spends tax dollars on are ridiculous.  I'm not saying that they shouldn't have updated books and whatever technology is available, but they don't need a retracting swimming pool, a high-tech track, or a wing dedicated to UDHS Hall of Fame athletes.  And yes, I'm a little bitter because if you had a prominent family you were treated like gold, but if you didn't you were treated like garbage.  And yes, that includes by the teachers.
