There is NOTHING that I can do to prevent a kid from reading material on this site, NOTHING! That is, without making all the forums private, and that has already been discussed and shot down. So now what? The responsibility rests squarley on the shoulders of the parents. Don't waste your time putting it on my shoulders because one simple *shrug* and it will flop on the floor like a dead fish. I'm not carrying that load... i've sacrificed enough of my life for you people and i'm done and over it.

A good parent is like a great okinawan Sai maker, he takes a diamond in the rough, forges it into an appropriate shape, with strategically placed strikes, and then shapes it into a fine, one of a kind Sai, like what George has.

Thats not my fault, i'm not the blacksmith here... you are.
