Not to worry good people, Quanell X is on it.

If he looks like a young Martin Sheen he may be cute but seriously he's bad news.

"The inter-what now?"

Isn't this an exhortation for better parenting? What is wrong with that?

"I would tell other parents out there to monitor the interne," she said. "Pay attention to what their kids are doing."

Sound advice for parents of many members of Congress.

/Yes I know it's not spelled that way
//Kid in TFA was probably using those sneaky acronyms all the kids are using these days
///Get Ric on the case

What makes Mom think other parents are going to listen to the warnings any more than she did?

I Dunno, she sounds like a natural born killer

I bet they had sex as well. Sweet, sweet underaged sex.

Hey parents - know what the fark your kids think. Internet or not, get to know your kids.

Yes, it's the internet's fault, if she didn't have internet she would be a perfect citizen.

And Quannell X is a racist, anti-Semitic POS.

Funny how most fifteen-year-old girls don't do sh*t like this, even when they have access to the Internet. I wonder what made the difference here?

Wrong. If she met the right guy they wouldn't have gotten caught.

Do black people have their own internet too? Cause the internet I go on doesn't make me want to carjack and commit armed robberies.

We're done here.  Somebody hit the lights.
 
2014-04-19 10:46:42 AM
Yeah, when I was a kid we didn't have "the internet" so there was no crime back then.

It was about time Joel Murray got a leading role. If he can get typecast in those kinds of roles instead of sitcom-husband's-pal, that would be awesome.

Still wrong.  If she had met the right guy, nothing newsworthy would have happened.

I occasionally see what my son's doing on the internet. He found Omegle last year (a renamed ChatRoulette) and I'm sure a bunch of horny pervs were surprised to see a five year old playing Just Dance.

Surprised isn't how you describe 1/5 of those peoples reactions.

A referent to that is what I was looking for.

LeroyB: Yeah, when I was a kid we didn't have "the internet" so there was no crime back then.


Yeah. Older men had no means by which they could seduce young girls into "adventures" that end badly. Never happened.

abhorrent1: Do black people have their own internet too? Cause the internet I go on doesn't make me want to carjack and commit armed robberies.


And of course, such things NEVER, EVER happened among respectable white folks.

And yet again people expect psychic super-powers from one another.

Ignoring the second part of the question, which is (I hope) an attempt at humor, I would point out that... yeah, kinda sorta.

There are definitely some social websites that cater to them more aggressively.

Moreover, even when they're using the same Facebook and Youtube that some rich white guy is using, both parties are self-selecting the Channels they subscribe to, the Friends they have, the things they Like... so it actually is a completely different experience in some ways. (An echo chamber, even.)

Not that "keep an eye on your kids at least closely enough to notice if she's farking stockpiling weapons and committing armed robberies" isn't a decent parenting tip, or at least some sort of minimum standard for paying goddamned attention to your crotchfruit, but why single out the internet?

Would this have somehow been better if your minor daughter hooked up with a fellow armed robber via the classifieds or the post?

// Honestly if you didn't notice the girl suddenly being flush with cash, having a 25-year-old boyfriend, and being featured prominently in local wanted posters/news stories/sketches, I don't think it's the failure to snoop on your daughter's messenger chatting that's the big failure of perception here.

i hate you. first because there is yet again some part of the internet i hadn't heard of. second because i had to google it. and last because i looked at some screencaps and am at least 15 IQ points dumber for that.

Quanell X?  Seriously?

Sounds like some kind of anti-fungal medication.

Nah. Quanell X IS the fungus. Or the leach. Or the racist racebaiter POS or whatever.

Hell yeah! Go take a look at bossip.com if you want to feel totally lily white and clueless. "Speakin' jive" is one thing; writing in it (and then attempting to decode it) is a trip. Obviously, I am not urban enough.
