• Why does the media think we care about celebrities?

    Seriously, in every single magazine or advert or whatever, there's always some news story about how a celebrity 'accidentally' leaked nude pictures or how they just got plastic surgery or how they cried about being a single gram overweight, has the media seriously got nothing else to talk about?

    Seriously, in every single magazine or advert or whatever, there's always some news story about how a celebrity 'accidentally' leaked nude pictures or how they just got plastic surgery or how they cried about being a single gram overweight, has the media seriously got nothing else to talk about? I just saw the Nepal Earthquake news story right next to a news story about Kim Kardashian getting even more botox injections. Just why? (more of a rant than an actual question, but if you feel like you have an answer then please go ahead)

  • Am I the only parent that punish my kids if they get anything below an A+?

    I have 3 kids: Ages 4, 7 and 8. My youngest one is not yet in school but my 6 and 7 year olds are, therefore I expect them to be the very best in terms of academics.

    I have 3 kids: Ages 4, 7 and 8. My youngest one is not yet in school but my 6 and 7 year olds are, therefore I expect them to be the very best in terms of academics. I expect them to excel to the highest possible degree. Last term, my 7 year old came home with a 94 in creativity so it was in my intention to give her a punishable offense so she won't bring home such a grade ever again. Only high As are acceptable in the household and that's final. I have had parents criticizing me, telling me that this type of parenting is wrong on all accounts. However, in my opinion, I think they themselves are WRONG and they should be ashamed of themselves for not raising their kids the correct way.

Yahoo needs to get their stuff in order here, or someone else will, and if that happens, it's not going to be good. Yes, I am making a statement to you, Yahoo. Clean up those sick posts that go against your TOS and Community Guidelines, or someone will report them and you to authorities. I like using answers to get answers to technical issues, and these sex posts everywhere, are ruining this place.

  • Teen writers: Why do you care so much about what others think of your idea?

    Best answer: There's two sorts of teen writers, I think. There's those who write because they enjoy writing, because it's a sort of enjoyable thing they do. You know. A hobby. They might ask for help with certain aspects of their story, and it's not like the literary trade doesn't have a strong tradition of... show more
    Best answer: There's two sorts of teen writers, I think. There's those who write because they enjoy writing, because it's a sort of enjoyable thing they do. You know. A hobby. They might ask for help with certain aspects of their story, and it's not like the literary trade doesn't have a strong tradition of collaboration and criticism. I style myself one of these, which is probably pretty accurate considering how much I write versus how often I put anything up. I'm pretty sure that the vast majority of professional authors are this kind of thing, as well as most adult amateurs- once you have a job and a life, it gets a lot harder to write and you have to love it to keep at it.

    And then there's the other group, who I can only describe as wanting to have written. They don't enjoy the writing process, but they like the percieved or actual benefits of being a writer e.g. fame, money, status, having a story where they're a powerful elemental girl with a hot demon boyfriend who gets to kill the evil bad guy that represents their precalculus teacher be a thing that exists, ect. If they were locked in a cave forever with a notebook and a TV, they would probably spend most of their time at the TV instead of using the notebook to write, because they wouldn't see the point in writing something nobody is ever going to read. This group is the group who asks this sort of questions.
