There are so many things wrong with that statement in so many ways that I'm just going to cut my losses and do something more productive with my evening.
Like hit yourself in the head with a bedroom slipper over and over or count the tile on the ceiling again. Or both at the same time.
The problem ain't parents disciplining their kids anymore. It's dumbasses who let their kids run wild like little savages anymore.
We were at the bakery.....this is a sad story. There was a glass display case of desserts, and naturally the kids go up to it. So I tell my kids "keep your hands and faces off of that glass, some poor guy has to clean all that stuff! Think about other people once in a while!"
And the people working there were mystified. They'd never heard anybody tell their kids to not touch the glass.
Sad commentary really. I don't know if it's stupidity, selfishness, or a sad mixture of both.
I'm not the bookburning type, but it's all my s~$~ til you get out of my house and get your own house and get your own crap that you bought with your own money. See, this is because kids, although they think they know everything, don't actually know much of anything, and have to learn before they turn into adults that don't know anything and go around popping off about crap they really don't know about. They don't know what the hell they're doing, I do, and if they are using their crap to do dumb crap then I'm taking control of it, up to and including destruction or liquidation if need be. Plain and simple. This is why, frinstince, my kids can't have a motor bike, even though the dumbass next door bought his son one and he's already broken his leg riding it. I don't let my kids have bee bee guns either, and I don't have firearms in the house, although if I need one for some reason I will go and acquire one. They aren't old enough to make smart choices yet, and so by default I am the custodian of all of their physical property. If my son came home with a bee bee gun next month that he bought with his own money, I would take the bee bee gun away from him. I would not write him an apology letter, and if he called the police they would tell him to listen to his father because he knows what he's doing.
Now, if you bought my kid a tablet, I'd look at you really strange. Frankly I'd wonder if you were a child molester. You also have to understand that if my kid is using the tablet to do stupid crap, or stay up all night and not getting enough sleep because he's playing with his tablet, or god knows what else, then yes; he's not getting his tablet for a while, and.....well.....if you bought it for him, I'm not going to ask your permission in the matter. I guess I'd give you the tablet back: this is why I don't accept expensive gifts from neurotic people who think they've bought me with material objects.
Regarding religion; I don't think anybody knows if there's a god or whatever, and I really don't care what anybody thinks. My kids want to go to Sunday school they can, if they don't want to go I wouldn't force them to. It's not nearly as big a deal as freaked out atheists on the internet would have you believe. My son's a bible thumper and doesn't believe in cavemen even, my daughter's probably an atheist, and my other daughter, god only knows; she'll probably prove or disprove the existence of god once and for all. Next year it'll probably all change.
I figure druids can be liches or vampires, so it's okee dokee.
I'm used to Slaine: The Horned God's Weird Slough Feg
If you capture all the fey in a valley and suck their souls out to give to a demon lord......yeah, that's "lose your powers" time.
Bit O' trivia - apparently, one of the earlier scripts for Aliens had Ripley and Newt come across a cocooned Burke. He tells them he can feel the chest burster moving around inside him, and begs them to help him. Ripley gives him a grenade and walks away.
they also had them a little whippet dog to play the baby alien in the first movie; it didn't look scarry enough though.

It's really all just a matter of what's interesting or cogent.
For example, in Indian reckoning of history, there was absolutely no mention or record of Alexander the Great invading them. He failed there, so they really didn't give a s$&& one way or the other to even remember him.
There was this thing I call the "F&%&ing 1,945 Year War" in Europe, and we went over there and put the Kybosh on it in 1945 for the most part.

Way I figure, the more bobo's that end up getting nukes, the closer the chances of something like a flock of seagulls beginning armageddon approach 100%.
There will be no sides, no lines,
Then, we can have The Road, and the starvation, and the redneck cannibals with shotguns.
I also predict that, within 20 years, we will see the first nuclear exchange brought about by a discussion on twitter.
I know what you're trying to do, but it won't work. He doesn't have the gumption to pull it off.
He probably b~+%~**&ted the numbers, because selling a 3000 mile trip is easier than selling a 12000 mile trip.
Backers are kinda useful, and if they're not hip to Eratosthenes, you oughtta tell them that Cipangu is 3000 miles thatta way instead of 12000 miles......
Or, as Bob told Nadine in Drugstore Cowboy, "Next time you step into the middle of one of my deals to help me with my arithmetic, I'll sell you to the first one-eyed carnival freak I can find for a pack of chewing gum!"
Tom Brevoort calls out the naysayers who think the changes will revert by the time these characters next movies come out...
I will bet him ten times that that Thor won't be played by a woman in Age of Ultron.
I kinda wish William S. Burroughs would do a comic book and make Thor female because then it would be worth reading. Or, maybe Alan Moore, since he's alive and all.
Otherwise, I get the feeling that it's just "hey! look! Marvel made Thor a woman; aren't we sooooooo groovy? Now look at DC.....the whole JLA is a Meat Locker. Wow; they sure are misogynists. Poor Wonder Person."
If the story's good, the thing redeems itself and it doesn't matter.
It's actually really awesome when this kind of affirmitave action for fictional characters deal doesn't end up being a snorefest.
