    I have no idea if this has been posted. If it has, please remove or move to the existed topic.


    One lesson learned: Solve your problem with a gun, post on YouTube and get almost 20 mil views in only 4 days.

    Warning to parents anywhere: do not post videos of stern punishments of your children on the internet. That is because the internet will turn around and punish you.

    I don't even have to look further into this story to know that this guy lost his job or whatever.

    In some forums in my country: Yeah what a spoil kid, you deserve it. Go Tommy, shoot her laptop!
    On YouTube: What a stupid dad, you shoot her laptop for nothing, this guy is an asshole, etc...

    What kind of difference is that?

    I just hope that the kid doesn't see the laptop after he shot at it. That will do some big psychological damage to her...

    If he wanted to break the laptop, he could have hit it on the floor, using his gun was so not cool.

    Er, what.
    No, I really doubt it would have any effect on her psyche except maybe piss her right off.

    What would him shooting his daughter's laptop in a state where guns are legal have to do with anything job related? If my dad decided to take my last phone away and throw it against a wall and post a video online because I was texting shit about him to facebook, it would be completly justified. It would SUCK, but he wouldn't be in the wrong - HE paid for my phone. Now, my current phone on the other hand (Galaxy Nexus), I just dropped $300 on this of my own, hard earned money from work. If he did that to this, I would take it two steps further on his stuff because now he's destroying my personal property.

    But he wouldn't. He's too fascinated with the Police Scanner app available on the marketplace. We live in Jersey, and his brother is a cop in Cali. Listens to his channel now lol.

    My sentiments exactly. Saw this vid a few days ago, and I agree with what he did completely. Granted, I see it as a waste of tech, but... do what you gotta do, eh?

    Maybe you're on to something...
    I'm sure 20 million hits would make up for a destroyed laptop in adsense dollars. :P
    Speaking of ads, it showed me a PokePark Wii commercial, no kidding XD

    I always knew Nintendo stood up for family values. :P

    My uncle showed this to me last night.
    I told him that parents officially scared me.
    His response?
    "Good."

    :wtf:

    This is interesting to me... I work in programming and I have free legal access to a library of a wide variety of licensed software, with terms not restricting personal use as far as I can tell. $130 sounds like Microsoft Office, which is something included in the aforementioned software library. And then its funny because I have access to quite a bit of the same software elsewhere for free as an engineering student haha.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    She probably deserved that. I do however feel sorry for the laptop. I mean, he could have taken it away without destroying a perfectly good piece of technology.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    I know, I was like D:

    *ON TOPIC*
    If I wrote a letter like that to my parents, I would have gotten the belt (and rightly so). So he shot the laptop--big deal. Can you imagine what would have happened if my dad posted a video of him whipping me on YouTube?

    For all the beatings I received (I was a bad little shit; I almost accidentally burned a building down--twice), I would never think about abandoning my parents when they're older. That girl sounds like a spoiled little princess. She wouldn't have survived growing up in my household.
