i dont want to post a link to the site here, but it started with an "o" and ended with an "ish." it used to host and spread a lot of horrific things. i have no idea if it still exists.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Forum Discussion

I remember being a kid on the internet-- I was a slightly early adopter, a fwe years before it became mainstream-- and if I saw anything like that, it was because I wanted to. The internet is certainly more widespread now than it was then, but I think you can, you know, sit around and freak out about what your kids might be doing, or you can try to instill your values in them and trust that they're good kids who'll do the right thing. (Which is basically true of any fundamental approach to parenting.) I mean, kids who want to find that stuff are going to find it no matter what you do; you can put certain restrictions in place, and you can talk to your kids if they do find those things, but I mean... you know, I think you'd just go crazy if you sat around worrying about everything your kid might possibly get into (I actually understand that this is the large majority of what being a parent is like).

This page, for instance. The girl walked up and said "ooh dinosaurs! what are they doing?"

We had a nice talk about how they didn't love each other, it was purely physical.

dinosaurs are pretty weird when you think about it. Maybe Carl Everett was ahead of his time.
