Apr 17th 2011 8:59AM We all know certain "men in show business" definitely live their lives and "color outside the lines": Bulusy, certainly Sheen, and Cage - its much of their charm. It has forever been that way, that's why we love them! Their quirky, different, bad boys, but incredible actors..
Call it insanity, call it addiction, BUT they somehow keep thriving and keeping us enthralled. and i believe its much of what made them famous, aside from bad publicity.
I like these crazy bad boys..
I do not believe however pushing his wife,if true, is right at all.. i dont believe in any abuse of each others partners, but couples fight, especially if intoxicated - verbally.
They worked hard to create their worlds that financially and by privilege are allowing their insanity - so let them ENJOY it, lol.
Besides Mel Gibson's abuse and hate words,
I think this much fun.. and entertaining..
I know people in my world 100% more insane than these bad boys.. they are just not hounded 24/7 by the press, and judged by the rest of the world... think about it..
Oct 23rd 2010 10:13AM Response to the last dozen.. i 49 and in my day our parents loved, nurtured us but didnt baby us like porcelain vases. Our playgrounds were blacktop, cement and hard solid metal play toys. We didnt cry and moan about foods we didnt like, we ate what our parents chose and could afford. my mom was a single parent and i ate "Hamburger Helper" 5 times a week for years and was grateful because she worked hard just to provide that. i never had gadgets or designer tennis shoes, i was grateful once a year i got new school clothes. so i spoiled the crap out of my kid, sacrificed so she had all the gadgets, $100 tennis shoes, $70 jeans and i enjoyed doing so. AND i taught her to at least stand up for herself.. she hates that when she was little and would be treated with disrespect for her age and her height as a child by an adult in a store i would embarrass her by storming the one who stepped in line before her like she wasnt even there at a gas station.. i would point out she had just enough right to her place in line.. on the flip, she was expected at age 3 to not throw tantrums in supermarkets or restaurants or movie theaters as others didnt deserve her outbreaks.. she is now in nursing school just 3 short months after graduating high school and thinking of a degree in medicine. i advised her to take the summer after graduating off and just be a teenager, she declined.. is she perfect? far from since in her teens she went off the deep end with drugs and sex.. but.. she has the self esteem and self worth that i helped instill to decide she wants more from her life than i had... no i was not a teenage mom, was married and she was much planned and desired. now if i had treated her like she was fragile, kept her from the bumps and bruises that makes us survivors as adults, she would have been ill prepared for much she has had to overcome in her teens. Due to circumstances not because i was inadequate, at 17 she became the first one in Cali at "her" age to ever open and operate a half way house for drug and alcohol abuse.. and it was successful..
because she walked that road and was a survivor and a warrior.
She is almost done with her AA degree and on to her nursing degree next fall.
She told me during the time she ran that house, went to college and unfortunately supported a much older man, total loser.. she told me over and over how much she resented the patrons of that half way house belittling her because of her age.. and how she couldnt know shit because she was so young and they had been out there using and abusing for years past her out there..
She wasnt handed that house, she took it because it was the only way for the owner out of foreclosure. she furnished it, she interviewed clients, interviewed others and their mistakes and learned from them. AND BALLED UP OVER AND OVER WHEN PATRONS FELL BACK INTO ADDICTION AND TRIED TO RUN HER OVER..
at the same time working fulltime and going to college.
is she a saint, no.. far from
did she learn from my mistakes and all i tried to instill in her? you bet..
point being... a sparrow either falls from the nest and flies.. or it hits the pavement.. what it is taught is crucial BUT survival of the fittest..
she is a survivor, and a warrior... this world is beautiful and incredible but cruel beyond belief as it should be..
...none of us are ever promised a perfect world .. teach them love, forgiveness and survival and cut them loose..
and if they hit the pavement, well we failed and LOL
GOOD THING THEY WONT BREED... LOL
Our parents did the same with us..
Oct 23rd 2010 8:39AM I'll try & be brief but feel it important to the subject of bullying, and allowing the child to handle it themselves, at least at first. I raised my daughter (almost 20 now) with high self worth & esteem. But she was bullied in Jr high. 5 female schoolmates started spreading rumors about my child & her bf that they were basically "sluts", (yeah 7th grade, times have changed, sigh). She knew she could come to me with anything, but chose to handle it as teens will do, on her own. She started by face to face with the bullies but the name calling, the rumors, the writing on bathroom walls escalated. Of course, by then the boys were "full on board" with the gossip (small town 95k) so they were suddenly now building a false reputation in the school amongst the kids. Her day to day at school had become a living nightmare. She then went to her teachers, no help there. She even (by themselves) went to the principal, again no support. So she finally told me all, the way she had tried to resolve it and felt she had only one option.. and she wanted to talk it over with me first. that says a lot about her self esteem & our communication. I am not one who condones violence but sometimes, when pushed against the wall, YOU JUST HAVE TO KICK SOME ASS IN LIFE, LOL. She wanted to call the girls out for a fist fight after school.. to end it. She was really angry over all this. Yes, we know that is juvenile, but we all remember this is how it works in that social circle called "school". Please read on, interesting ending here. We both understood my getting involved would solve nothing, as she had already asked for help, so I gave her my blessing (1st & only time I ever thought this was a "solution" & not just stupid behavior). I told her stage the confrontation off of school grounds so you dont get suspended (she was almost a straight A student all her life). I told her if suspended i would back her 100% and go to the superintendent about the situation and how she had tried the "right" avenues of resolving same. Again, remember very small town, she and bf caused the confrontation, and in my pride, kicked ass on 5 girls at one time, lol. She even told me later the main ring leader middle of it all, tried to run away and she grapped her by her hair and said, "You are not going anywhere yet, bitch!" didnt even know she knew that word lol.. Turns out small town cops showed up and dragged all of them back to the school and i was called. As they all sat there and the cops learned of the whole situation, they berated the 5 girls for there bullying and verbalized they were "a bit" amazed that "2" took on "5" and kicked their ass's!! No one from the school actually showed up, but i acted all mad at her (she knew i was walking frigging proud) and no suspense's were even discussed. SHE NEVER AGAIN HAD A PROB WITH ANY FEMALE STUDENT AT THAT SCHOOL AND ALL LEARNED IT WAS NOTHING BUT LIES.. Her rep was restored, I had a whole new respect for my daughter, and much disdain for that school district.. SOMETIMES, YES.. WE HAVE TO ALLOW OUR KIDS TO HANDLE IT THEMSELVES BECAUSE THEY LEARN THE REAL WORLD IS BRUTAL.. but we also have to be supportive and hear their words sometimes stated vaguely, and start a conversation about how both child and parent feel best to deal with it.. Please try and remember, the playground is much brutal and bringing in a parent can make it a living hell for the child. Besides, honestly, its a learning ground for adulthood, unless it goes too far..
May 2nd 2010 3:00AM Well, torked
1) There is a staircase that leads from the restaurant/suite to the surface, so could easily exit. i would have to assume once uptop there is a walkway from there to the shore, otherwise a dock of some sort, point being would be above water. Plus even if couldnt reach the staircase in time, it is ONLY 15 feet beneath the surface, and one could easily just swim to the surface.
2) I would assume the area is roped off in some way so that boats and divers cannot interfere with the patrons enjoying their meals and anyone sleeping in the suite. Plus boats would drive the fish and wildlife away from the plexiglass, which is kind of the point of the whole thing, lol
3) Good point about the full moon, but then if one were to rent this, why in the world would you sleep? i would sleep before i got there so i could observe everything throughout the night.
4) i think it would be incredible to make love all night in this suite with the moonlight above the water line and all the undersea wildlife.. THAT is an experience to share with the grandkids, lol.
5) but in reality, most of us could either not afford what a night here would cost, or desire to spend that kind of monies for same.. It would be an extreme financial indulgence either way, lol.
Nov 22nd 2008 5:51AM I was born & raised in SoCal and black widow spiders can be found nesting behind/under most heavy furniture all the time in one's home. Their very much a MYOB spider, unless you invade their space, lol.. BUT the article was a bit exteme, as to the bite of a widow - It ranks up there with a scorpion (been there done that, lol) or a bee sting - the worst will usually only occur if one is allergic to the bite. Ive talked to people biten and medical personnal and they recommend taking a few Advils and riding out the discomfort around the bite area. They dont even recommend going into the ER unless one is experiencing symptoms such as the writer addressed. When i was stung several years ago in Texas by a large scorpion, i had been under the impression the bite could be fatal, and as i ran around screaming for someone to take me to the ER, my Texas friends broke into laughter at my drama. I was biten on my knee and yes, at least 4-6 hrs of shooting pain from my knee into my groin was suffered, but a few hefty shots of Jack Daniel's and a lot of whinying over the lack of sympathy from my bud's, i survived with little more than a headache the next morning, lol.. Oh FYI: Black Widows CAN jump, lol..
