Open Free for All / television

I've only watched Scrubs a time or two...I'm not into television too much myself.  I guess my parents won that one.  We never had a television from the time I was around 11 years old.  I wasn't really impressed with Scrubs, but it did seem to have a few funny moments.

There was a cable show that I did like, Dead Like Me.  Ever seen it?

There's a thread for the music you're listening to....why not movies/discussions?

I saw Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium last night.

I really enjoyed it, it reminded me that belief in myself is just as important as all of the other bs I think is relevant to my daily life.  Way to go Hollywood!

Now I saw this toy advertised and I thought it was cool.  I hadn't gotten around to buying it yet though when the story broke about kids ingesting them.  

The story I read was something about a 9 year old and her sibling having ingested it and getting seriously ill.  I agree that a 9 year old should be old enough to know better than to eat their toys, but face it, good parenting is needed for some lessons, and some folks just suck at parenting.  Point in case, oh, every last one of us that is a survivor of any of the behavioral modification "resorts"/"boarding schools" whatever.  

My first thought about it was obviously why the Chinese would use this kind of substance in their toys.  Now, the littler child will innately put ANYTHING in their mouth.  Where was the parent?  That was my second thought...

Oh my Gawd.  I thought I had things bad (oh, and I did...just see anything whatsoever to do with Roloff's...).  You folks seriously went through some shit too.  I really believed that no one else had been through similar crap.  That's such a shallow and whiny point of view, surprisingly.  Never thought of myself as shallow & whiny before...

Lorri, I know hon.  You know me, you jusht don't realize you do.

hi Heather its Evana,

... this can also hurt me when I go to get a job somewhere.

Your future employers really don't care about your personal life. (Unless you have nude pics on the internet, then some of your future employers may...)

I never met Lester, and couldn't say as to what kind of person he was.  What I can say is that the folks who were in charge after him were abusive, more emotionally than physically from my experience.  I was there, I have seen what they were capable of.  Please don't categorize other's experiences by YOUR experience.  

If you were in City of Refuge, you went in either voluntarily, or by court order and either had the choice to leave whenever you wanted or when your judge said you could.  You were not dragged there and dumped by your family with no hope of leaving until your year was done, if then.  Unfortunately, for some even with the emotional abuse, it was a safer haven than home.  This was not the case for all.

I am an adult, with children of my own.  I know the difference between paddling, and abuse.  Understand that I saw paddling, and I saw abuse.  You stated, "As for "abuse," that's mostly how the incorrigible and delinquent kids interpreted the counseling "  There was NO counseling when I was there.  Perhaps there was in the '60s, but not in the late '80s.
