A place to keep my work.
Stupid is an understatement...

I just saw a report watching nbc news. Its about the laundry pods used to do laundry. They're brightly colored and look like big candies. Ergo...children love candy and these pods are very tempting. Two deaths...several comas... and a few cardiac arrests later doctors say that you should use traditional detergents, make sure the zip lock bags they come in and actually zipped and to keep all detergents out of the reach of children. My question is this......

Why the hell don't the powers that be suggest/force these companies to make then less enticing/tempting for children. Adults can read, they know what they're getting and hopefully comprehend what they're reading. But for whatever reason these things just keep on happening. When are people going to learn a little common sense. It appears that common sense may be an alien concept to them. Either that or they just don't give a damn.

That's why there are bars next to the bowl in bathrooms. Obviously starkers lost his grip.

Totally agree. Absentee, lazy parenting, is whats going on. Open house for a school in my town with 200 students saw about 50 parents show up. Most were single parents.
