Might be a reason that people with long legs are perceived as more beautiful.

Where did you get that? How is leg-length measured in this case?
Learned it at school. I think standing up: length bottom of foot till hip bone. But I'm not 100% certain.

The article shows how to measure it. First you remove all the skin and muscle....

My 12 year old is addicted to Xbox and Call of Duty...

He has ZERO sense of responsibility when it comes to homework, always trying to blame someone else for his not getting it done.

So... after making him cry two weeks in a row trying to teach him how to take responsibility, he has lost Xbox until further notice.

Next step is loss of Laptop & iPod.

If that fails, Xbox gets the sledge hammer, and he will have to do it himself.

I feel like total @$$h0l3 doing this, but I have no other choice at this point. Stupid video games are not going to be his #1 priority if I have to beat it out of him.

(I would never beat him, it's an expression)

Be thankful she's not a girl. My girl (12 in December) told her mother that one of her friends is throwing up after eating to lose weight. She's fooking 12. She won't tell us wh she is

Maybe you should beat it out of him. ;-)

I can't tell you how to feel, but you shouldn't feel like an @$$h0l3. You're a parent and your responsibility is to make sure your kid(s) don't turn out like idiots. You are doing more then most would do. Taking away the xbox will hopefully work. Making him take a hammer to it will just have him resent you. You don't want to go down that road.

Whenever I slacked on homework, I had $h1t taken away and it worked.

No problem robert.

And Nygmen, if you want to get a lil' bit cruel when your son gets angry for some reason:
1) make a box or a pile of stones
2) put xbox in it (can't be seen from the outisde)
3) let your son cool down, by hammering on "that box over there"
4) watch and laugh

I play Call of Duty. When I was a kid I played counter-strike for hours everyday. I worked a lot though. Pretty much my entire work life has been manual labour. If he likes COD so much then make him join the army.


Also I had a friend, (boy) who threw up to loose weight, I saw a jolly overweight fellow turn into skin & bones. Its scary.

Nah Wilbur. It will be the most fun you ever had coaching. Just remember, focus on making it fun for them. Your number one job, in this case, is to get them to love the game.

I helped coach my daughter's team when she was 6 and 7. I think I had more fun than she did. Oh, and by the way, your toughest player to coach will be your own little girl.

Tomorrow is my last full time day at my job. I've been here for almost 14 years. JC, where did the time go? I was 17 when I started here. A snot nose little punk, and not I'm leaving a snot nose 31 year old punk. =/ Tomorrow is going to be really rough. Two of my bosses who aren't going to be here came to say goodbye earlier. One was the one who first gave me a job and was my boss for 8 years, the other my current boss. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:
