This is bullshit, IMHO. What do you guys think?

    So one of my parental units just informed me that she will be taking away the laptop I use for researching IM when she is not home. She believes that I am "rotting away" on the computer... I kind of find this funny, considering I'd be WATCHING MINDLESS TV if I'm not allowed on the computer. Keep in mind I don't bullshit around on the computer, I'm actively learning. I'm sure many of you know that there is TONS of information thrown at you when you're learning on the web, which is precisely why I'm on it for so many hours of the day. And I can tell you I'm learning a hell of a lot more doing this than sitting in school doing (and learning) jack shit.

    No offense to you WoW guys, but it's not like I'm playing WoW all day, learning nothing useful.

    Maybe she will understand when I start receiving checks. Oh BTW, they won't let me sign up for networks and shit until I'm 18, so I'm stuck at that area too. But no worries, I am patiently awaiting my 18th birthday later this year. And let me tell you, I can't wait.

    Has this happened to any of you? I think its total bullshit, simply because I'm LEARNING! How many parents would kill to have their kids wanting to learn as much as they can? 2+2 sure isn't adding up to 4 here.

    Thanks for the tip, how do i deal with the issue taxes? Like what forms do i need to fill out? I understand that NB is a canadian company, so IDK if they automatically send US income forms.

    Why not take some free tutorial course/s on web design or something similar?
    Show them and then explain it is a marketable skill and that you are being productive not wasting time rotting your brain :)
    "Researching" to them might mean researching Porn.
    Don't know you but, sometimes parents get weasels up their butts because the kids sit around "goofing off" and don't do a damn thing to help around the Ponderosa like doing dishes,vacuuming the carpet once and awhile.
    When you live on your own you'll be doing that anyway so, if you don't help out, you'd be surprised how nice the old farts can be once they see you are pulling your share of the work.
