Son smokes pot: Dad sells GH3 on eBay.
« on: December 11, 2007, 09:22:32 AM »
A dad came home form an arduous hunt for a copy of Guitar Hero 3 for his son for Christmas, only to find the stellar lad smoking pot on the patio.

Dad's reaction?

Sell the GH3 on eBay.

I have to say, this is probably the best dad I've heard of in a while.  I've always had respect for parents who find creative new ways to teach lessons to their children, most parents would just ground the kid.  He's doing something that his son will remember for YEARS afterward.  I hope the kid learns his lesson.

Well I have to say that I am not sure this is a true auction, have you seen how much it went for?
Over $9000, seems a little suspect to me....

Well, if you read through all the text of the auction, the dad said that if the final bidder ended up being a no-pay, he'd give the GH3 to his boy anyway.... so likely a bunch of sympathizers drove up the price in order to let the kid have the game.

Well it was deffinitely 'false bidding' and if he does give his son this game, after all of this, then I'm afraid he's made a rod for his own back.
We always do what we have threatened with Beasty, if this had been me, I would rather give the bloody thing away to charity than let her have it after such a statement....

Hmm this gives me an idea - perhaps I should sell my copy of GH3 and use the proceeds to buy me some pot...

Not that I smoke mind, but it'll be a damn sight more fun than what they've done to this game!

This seems a bit harsh, but if the kid is dumb enough to smoke weed on the patio, he probably needs this sort of wake-up-call.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabis_legalization_in_Canada

I'm still confused as to whether it's actually legal, but my sources have informed me in the past that Canadian cops were not in the habit of actually enforcing such laws.

(although it's surprising what you can get away with in the USA if you don't look enough like a pothead to get harassed)

Yeah well, considering if I were to be caught, I'd probably get disbarred, I'll stay away from illegal drugs. After all, that's why god created the Netherlands.

IIRC, it's legal here in South Australia to own a very small number of marijuana plants and to smoke it at home. I think possession without intent to sell is a misdemeanor, so if you get caught with a tiny amount they can just fine you without needing to send you to prison over it (and as such, more people *have* been charged, as previously the police were more likely to just pretend not to see anything when there's a small amount).

Just grow your own in your closet, like someone I know does. :)

I find it rather pathetic that pot is illegal but alcohol is not. Stupid laws are made to be broken by ‹bermensch like me, Nietzsche said so!  ;D

*singing* There's nothing Nietzsche couldn't teachya' 'bout the raising of the wriiiiiist. Sacrates himself was permanently piiiiissed.

Honestly, if it were legalised, the government could seriously just place a tax on it (as well as regulate the quality), getting money as a result of people having the odd toke.

Now, if they picked something addictive (let's go crazy town and pretend opium was legal), there would be problems as fist they'd make a killing on the taxes, with an unfortunate side-effect of people spending all their money on the addiction, going bankrupt then needing government-funded* detox and financial support to get back on their feet. So that wouldn't actually be a good idea, even if addiction is what capitalism loves (it makes people spend money). But we're not talking opium, meth or coke.

Besides, you'll never stop the Uni students from getting stoned, may as well let them do it and declare a lower crime rate *wink*

*Over here, it doesn't place you in a debt to get government aid. The only paying back you'll ever do is when you earn enough that you're paying tax again. I'm not sure how other countries work it.
