Thought; cant get the parent to put em on Ritalin, put em in the alternative school.
I said on another thread something to the effect that the kids are smarter than those charged with educating them. For me, this is a prime example.
If for anything, MySpace should be shut down for eyesore. I swear I'd rather have by eyes poked out with a red hot, rusty, salty spoon than look at any of about half those profiles. It doesn't look so much like a teenager's room as it does a 7 year old's art project.
i hear a lot of older people setting up spots on this site, then I hear that it's almost always filled with kids as young as 10yrs old. it just sounds like a kids/teens thing to me.
But several of our current posters have a spot on MySpace. No, I don't.
You'd be surprised how many older folks (over 30) are there for the purpose of meeting people, and learning about how to network with people via a computer. It is an ingenious website, that should be a viable business within a short period of time reaping big rewards....
...the kid was wrong, in what he did to his principal, but it is humorous, too....
yeah, i hear it is becoming popular with college-age and older people now, which I am not sure I understand, but whatever floats yer boat...
a friend of ours with whom we get together with every so often, has a space and has about 5 stories on there now. The one about his mom is great, since we know her very well. Now after reading it, I won't be able to look at her the same way again. go to http://www.myspace.com/justinthorsvik and read "Most Infamous Stories Episode 5". The rest of the entries, well...ya gotta know him to understand him...
It has its uses and benefits.
However, it has become a haven for child predators.
Like anything, good and bad together.
Thing is, my school had fake profiles for two of our gym teachers. They were funny and they weren't serious. And the principal profile sounds like something we'd do for our own principal (though he probably is too drunk to remember).
I rather like myspace. I have a profile there. its kept me in touch with tons of friends i havent seen in forever.
However, i do think they should prevent kids from getting on. youd be surprised how many 15 year olds are pretending to be like 25 or 29 and have this incredibly scandalous pictures up. and im just like this is not good.
Its also pretty easy for people to pretend to be others. and i hate the porn ads.
