Explain to them that most of them are hoaxes. They are being used to promote civilian disarmament AKA gun control. They are FAKE!

So basically you're asserting that the firearms involved suddenly sprouted legs and went off the deep end... You're an idiot.

There's the rub. We do not live in a natural selection society. We have empathy, medicine and prosthetics, for example, instead of just leaving the weak out to die. We value their input, and they are often the ones who make the great advances in medicine and science without which many of the "strong' would never even come into being. Don't forget, bullies have problems. Domestic abuse or repressed sexuality for example. To regard bullying as somehow healthy or a "good idea" ignores this too. 
I dont understand your language sorry

No longer being a teenager, I refrain from ad hominem attacks. My ridicule was directed at your silly and unreasonable notions that being bullied is somehow acceptable and that the "weak" do not contribute to society. That ridicule was thoroughly deserved. Being bullied, unless it's to death, does not weed out anyone or anything. Sadly, that does happen. I hope you do not regard this as an acceptable consequence of a character-building exercise for which bullies should somehow be lauded.

The only important thing is to keep in mind is to keep your kids far far away from the man like this one. He will drug your kid till he goes completely crazy. see w w w . drugwatch . com / prozac /
