I would love it if laws are passed that it's your kids that needs to take care of you, as you did them when they were young.

Anyone without kids, leave them in a room alone with their money, see how that goes, and go pick it up (to give to medical research) after they're die.

It might make the children haters stfu... but I doubt it.

Let me see Serge, I've upgraded your wheel motor. I've installed a fleshlight. I've covered you in the Realdoll that just c- I mean, just got delivered.

And I got Amanda out of the house for the day.

I think it's time to feel the future of Graystone Industries.

Hahahahahahah, you're a retched person. So this law you'd looooove to have involves children, who were brought into this world by either their parent's negligence with birth control or by their parent's choice, being on the hook for taking care of the people that dragged them into this mess both financially and physically, keeping in mind there's tons of terrible parents out there? Is that how you view your children, as something that owes you something because you had them? I owe my parents a lot for making me the person I am but they sure as hell don't view it like I owe them something. They did everything for me out of love and I return that love as best I can.

How about instead of passing a law you actually be a loving parent and decent human being and have them actually want to take care of you?

I don't hate kids but I kind of hate you and by extension your kids, I hope the miserable shiats let you die alone.

My parents were smart.  They had 3 kids.  One of us will take care of them in their old age and it will probably be my sister.  I would pitch in and help but I'm over 1000 miles away.

Also, my parents are practically rich, biatch.  Not super-rich, but they aren't likely to be hurting for money before they die which is more than I can say about me.

I wouldn't be surprised if my parents outlive me anyway.  They don't drink or smoke and I'm pretty sure they don't use fark.  I'm pretty sure Fark causes cancer.  It's just a theory right now, but if I ask enough people on Fark if they have cancer I'm sure I can establish a correlation at least.

You might be right.. I've had to deal with cancer a few months ago... just did my follow up radioactive treatment a couple of weeks ago.

Have you been in a thread with the usual crowd of children haters?  You want prejudice, that's were you'll find it... I was just poking fun for the heck of it.  The whole having kids so that you don't end up alone in your old age thing.

Well, the worst part is that I've stated that I wrote that in jest and still the anger flows...

As a father, and the stuff I've dealt with with my kids, I have a bit of a perspective that isn't standard anyways.

But dang, the bites have been some priceless giggle stuff, such anger... the internets is sooo serious.

And this is why you show up as red with the caption of "moron".

I didn't bother put you on ignore because watching your posts are like watching a trainwreck of stupidity.... E-V-E-R-Y-T-I-M-E... and it's always hilarious watching you self-destruct on a regular basis.

At least Henry won't judge you or abuse you like some nursing home staff do these days.

At least not until the software developers who program him get drunk one night and think it would be a funny idea.
