There’s this asshole who every time he sees me with my ukulele he thinks he’s funny and asks “Can you play any Metallica?” but the joke is now on him because I just learned how to play the intro riff to Master of Puppets.

I did it. I fucking did it. He asked me again just like I knew he would and I stared him straight in the eyes without blinking and just fucking shredded on my ukulele

Watch it in video

No. 

No this is not funny.

Whether or not it is a joke, I’ve gone onto the channel and there are multiple videos similar to this, which makes me think they’re fake.

Doesn’t matter. 

These videos enforce the idea to parents that yes, the answer to stop your child becoming obsessed with games is to DESTROY them.

No. This is not funny. It is things like this that cause events such as the father who SHOT his daughter’s laptop to bits to occur. These jokes enforce the attitude that people are ‘wrong’ for loving games.

For wanting to play games. 

For some people (including myself), games are a serious escape from horrid realities. The only escape some people can get. The idea that this man (boy?) is wrong for being so upset is disgusting to me?

This is horrific. This is abuse. This is wrong.

Yes this is not funny, but you have to look from another perspective.
The child wasn’t in school for three months, he chose games over education, I myself understand how enjoyable and fun games are but even if that’s your comfort zone, it doesn’t mean that you can drop or skip your education. He had his priorities sorted incorrectly and got punished for that.

Speaking from personal experience:
Back in my school days I spent more time gaming, watching anime and reading novels than preparing for my final exams. As a result my exam results came as really poor and I managed to get to my preferred university in my country only by mere luck (but that’s another story). If I had my priorities sorted better I would have managed to get to my original choice which would have been a better foreign university. Yet with bad exam results that was impossible.

Now another example:
A close friend of mine spent more time on games than on school to the point where he skipped school for almost a whole semester. He almost ended up being left in the same grade for a second year. Fortunately back then this would have been possible only with parent approval so after he cried for them begging for many days, his parents decided that he may have learnt his lesson and won’t be skipping school.
Sadly that was not a case, but his parents decided not fill an agreement to leave him for a second year in hopes that he one day will get a hold of himself and start thinking about his future.
Lets skip few years forward. Dude had his final exams getting closer by each day, instead of preparing for them he spent that time playing LOL.
Guess what, he failed his exams worse that I did, right now he’s practically in a position where hardly any better university will accept him.
That means he has very limited possibilities for his future.


Now to my point, about this video.
If this video is real then I may suspect that it’s not the first time he has disappointed his parents that much. From what I have seen in my life even if his parents have tried approaching his problem in the past with different methods like talking with their son, were ineffective. 

To sum up:
Was fathers choice to destroy his sons games a good choice?
         No. 

Were there any better methods to give that child a lesson without destroying his comfort zone?
         Most possibly NO.

Remember, that in most cases, your parents care about your future more often that you do yourself. 

Speaking as a pscyh student (diploma only) who did a report on internet addiction.

Education is really important yes. And the point that this kid supposedly skipped school is very important. 

But this just doesn’t feel right?

I mean people are trying to find ways approach internet/gaming addictions, through everything from medications, therapy, outdoor camps, ect. Thing is, video games are wired to be rewarding, and people are trying to figure out how addiction happens and how we can treat it.

But I don’t really see how destroying the games are going to help this guy. I mean perhaps now he’ll attend school, maybe its the wake up call he needs. But at the same time if he was using it as a form of escape he would probably end up using/trying something different to escape? possibly drugs?

Also having his video games shredded is hardly going to encourage him to work/study. If anything it would probably just cause him to resent his father. If  his father is doing it out of love for his son, i don’t know if it would help. If the games are that important to his son, this action would just, ruin him.And even with using terms of addiction, the family could have just cleared it out. Shredding them like this is just visceral.

And from another version of this post I was reading some users were commenting on things that were very important to them that we’re lost/taken away by their parents. It just ruins the kid’s trust in their parent. Absolutely destroys it.

I just find it hard to believe that anyone in the family had anything to benefit from this action.

I mean, tests are very important, but you can always retake them. How much (if ever) is this kid going to trust his parents again after this?

ATTENTION FOR A SECOND, YO: 

Real talk, this animal (the Ordovician Helmet crab, aka the Horseshoe crab, aka the Atlantic’s most at-risk shelled animal) is of a species that is close to 450 million years old. They are considered endangered, and often wash up on the shores of Long Island (this big lady crab was at TR park in Oyster Bay)

Note: these animals are often used to extract their blue blood and cure diseases. They help the ocean out big time. And they are one of the longest-surviving species on the planet. They’re washing up and people don’t think to/are scared to save them because of their deceivingly harmless barbs. 

Take note, friends. Their barbs are NOT stingers. They cannot hurt you. Their pinchers aren’t pinchers, they’re just little legs that are actually really soft! The barb tail they have is actually what they use to stick into the ocean floor or the sand when waves knock them over or they flip onto their backs by accident. And you can help them out by flipping them back over very quickly and helping them scuttle back into the water if you see them struggling. 

This is way important. Just call me the Sarah McLachlan of horseshoe crabs.
