Issues as in "retarded kid that everyone indulges", or issues as in "insanely entitled kid whose parents push him into things and everyone awkwardly plays along with"?

Clicked for epic snark..  Got exactly what I was hoping for and then some.

I hope not. Otherwise, somebody needs to reign the little farker in before he hurts somebody.

No, I don't think he would have been able to get the license for a public performance.

GungFu: 'p.lonk'  is not allowed on Fark?

Who knew?!


When it became a synonym for adding someone to the block list and the mods got a bug up their butt about it, etc.

Whatever, I was making Facebook pages about my 9 year old neighbors before it was cool...

For those here who haven't played the piano: as you'd expect with using a computer keyboard, the correct ergonomic posture would be with the forearms slightly above the keyboard surface. The kid's chair far was too low in the video. I don't know how such a large crowd could idly sit by and watch a kid risk getting carpal tunnel syndrome.

Hey, where those guys who close down kids' lemonade stands for not having a restaurant license? I'll bet the RIAA has something to say about this too!

Same for the lowest score on a scale of ten for "rating" trolls and a certain word used to insinuate websites using sensationalism to drive page views. It'll probably get worse.

Here they are discussing the piano concert.

I applaud this kid for not angrily shouting into a microphone.

I'm surprised Ticketmaster didn't get a court order to shut down the facebook page that got the audience participation.

Give it till the end of the week.  A lawsuit is already in the works.  They are just trying to decide if they want to include the home a part of the "illegal performance space"...because you know...they may want that home too.

"Became"? That is a term held over from Usenet and has been around for at least 20 years. Go mods.

Whoever wrote the copy for that story was on the ball.  You never want to run the risk of calling a kid a budding pianist just in case your anchor mispronounces it.

That said, good thing subby, remembering the " : " in Cute: 9 year old.

Also, here is my neighbor singing the national anthem at a the Times Union Center.  She sounds a little nervous.  I've seen her do better, but hell, the national anthem is a tough one.  She's 9.
