I stayed largely sober at a party last night, and yet still ended up rather involved. Three people took it upon themselves to advise me on my personal life before a friend of mine was dumped by his boyfriend. Then another friend became extremely agitated over two people in our friendship group kissing, drank a great deal, tried to split them up, and had a rather involved heart-to-heart with me in a toilet.

I ended up finishing the evening strolling round the quad with a teetotal neighbour, chatting idly about our courses, wondering how the night got so sticky.

I never expected the first time freshers come back to uni to be as dangerous as fresher's week. Come to think of it, I should have seen it coming. I still don't get why people must tangle up their lives so.

You so racist your sperm swims in ovals
This is probably the the best one yet.

But yeah, Akura. Definitely see if there are other jobs available in nearby stores.

Why is it legal for people to have small, noisy children in public spaces like on trains and in waiting rooms?
Talk about bloody unfit parents. Give the poor little blighters to the State.

Because if the only fit parents are people who can afford never to enter public spaces (or hire a caretaker every time they do), every child will be Donald Trump.

Because children generally don't care about how quiet you want them to be.
Also, biologically speaking, the smallness also can't be helped.

Don't be so extreme!  I am sure that if we just relaxed certain rules where CPS gets involved, we could solve this problem quite neatly, and without resorting to A Modest Proposal even!  Such as, operant conditioning!  People have used a form of this for thousands of years to control their willful children, and a small implanted electrode is far less likely to cause physical harm than old fashioned corporal punishment.

I say, when every child turns 2, we implant the electrode array with a glucose driven fuel cell and a keyed NFC antenna. Then, whenever the child misbehaves, they get the lecture, THEN they get the shocks.  Easy peasy!  That way, when they turn 3, they are well trained for going out in public!

Interesting ideas, Wierd, but I think it would be less harmful to the child to simply restrict them (only children that behave poorly, of course) to controlled environments ever their poor behaviour doesn't affect anyone but those who begat them.
I might respond to this in more detail later, but for now I have a new, entirely unrelated WTF:

Apparently the Hard-Ons are touring with Rose Tattoo in the near future. I don't particularly like other band (some RT songs are okay I guess) but I know just enough about them for this to come as a surprise.

If we have the money to build a nanostructured platinum/SWCNT fuel cell for every toddler in the country and subsequently implant it, we could probably just pay for daycare and save on malpractice suits.

Or, you know, cattle prods.

But how will the child learn that it isn't okay to be loud in public spaces unless they're in public spaces looking at how not-loud all of the grown-ups are?

Also, shock chips are a great idea if you're trying to instil discipline, but the same method could be used against swearing, or complaining about the government, or mentioning that you want to get your chip removed.

Economies of scale!

Also, think of the benefits!

1) Children will learn that high sugar content is their enemy, because high blood glucose charges the shock system more efficiently. This will greatly assist with combating juvenile obesity! WIN!

2) The implanted array needs significantly less electrical power to deliver the shock because it is beneath the subcutaneous fat layer, and has much lower resistance it needs to overcome to do its job.  This is not only more environmentally conscious, it also is less likely to cause burns, which is what those child coddling CPS idiots are all about really.

3) You can control your child with a smartphone!

4) Things like the Kent State tragedy could be prevented entirely, as campus security could simply activate the shock systems to suppress the little upstarts!

Really, It really is the better option. :P

Solution: replace humanity with machines. Infant AIs will still be annoying, sure, but they can get through that stage at an accelerated rate using only the internet.

You remember what happened to Tay when it was given Internet access, right?

Yup, and that is why Ray Kurzweil is a moron for thinking the singularity AI will help humanity. :P
