    One of those mysteries of life. What we need we sometimes don’t have enough of. And we get overwhelmed by what we don’t need.

    Cuz then we wouldn’t know they were immigrants?
    Actually, fat, lazy, keeping up with celebrity lives…..sounds like an American stereotype :P.

    Many immigrants actuallly work hard. Just look at the woman who just won Miss America….a hard-working American-Indian who is a masters student!!

    I still say this kid doesn’t have that bad. He probably won’t die without Internet at home. If he’s got food, decent clothes and shelter he’s got it a lot better than my brother and I had it. And here the father even asked a question of his kid and listened to the answer. He just didn’t agree with the kid because of his personal experiences. Again, this is much better than I had it. The main disagreement I had with my parents was whether food, audequate clothing and a roof over one’s head were needed for a child. There was no question for them that they needed those things in abundance. They didn’t want to take care of us and we weren’t dead yet, so that was good enough for them.

    Lake Michigan water temp is warm now so I was swimming yesterday. A lady was concerned because she thought I was too far out in the lake and in danger, so some kid had to relay the message to me to come in closer. But the water was only up to my chest because of a long sand bar. I came in closer anyway, out of respect for her.
    -
    It reminded me of my mother. As a family we would go a couple of times a year to the beach. There weren’t too many ways that I could ever make her happy, other than giving her money. But one way was for me to go in deep water that was 3 feet over my head and dive down to touch the bottom. I wasn’t a good swimmer then so that was tempting fate. That would always warm her heart. My brother wasn’t as good of a son. He only got in up to his waist and wouldn’t even move. He wouldn’t even get his torso wet.

    He should have said.“I’m designing a video game that could make us a lot of money”. He’d have home internet the next day!

    Sorry to hear about your childhood. I was also unappreciated (but not neglected- except they chose to send only my brother to college). Doing well is the best revenge (brother never worked a serious job and cheated many, now deceased).

    @DAZZ

    Thanks for the kind words! You would have done well in my family. Girls were more appreciated. One of my sisters, my mother’s favorite, has years of private piano training, tutoring in school, is fluent in German (she won a cash prize for it), has an accounting degree from one of the best universities in the world. My dad mailed a check again today as she and her husband don’t work or study. She’s drinking.
