His father quickly upgraded him to the real one when he saw how much effort his son was putting into pretending to play one.

He switched the fake console with the real one while his son was in the shower.

Zmrzlina is my favorite word.

I went to Slovakia in 1996 when I was 13. I was also very familiar with my mom's financial situation. Birthday money, first job paid for my plane ticket and spending money.

My mom was a secretary for a think tank and a visiting speaker was from Slovakia. He was deeply involved in Russia leaving to say much in little. His son came to visit and we took him to theme parks and such. They said all we had to do was pay the plane and any spending and they would feed an house me, to return the experience in their country.

Was one of the best months of my life. Spent a week attending Slovak school at the end of their year and went on a school trip with them to hike in the mountains. Went to a summer camp, also in the mountains for a week, toured some, but mostly just did normal kid stuff with his son.

The people were amazing, cities and towns beautiful and so full of history, even the recent history.

Anyway point is just a mix of for a trip like that I had to work and pay for it because I also understood our family situation. And Slovakia is amazing and most people don't know very much about it's history, and important recent history, or really much about it at all. Nice to see it brought up here.

Ps. My mom arranged for him to meet the caps Slovak players while here. Peter bondra, and I forget who else. She didn't even really do anything but call and ask if they could somehow meet them at the caps practice rink in our area. The world felt much smaller then. This was long before social media and it's PR. They just let us go to one of their practices which is normally open to the public, and back in the locker room and his son meet all the Slovak players.

Was amazing seeing them talk in their language together and Bondra seemed thrilled just to have some Slovak kid suddenly there and talking with him. They gave him two autographed sticks that he cherished.

It's not always a privilege. My parents did their damnedest to keep us kids from knowing about their finances, like it was some pride thing. We know we hit rough patches, because we weren't stupid, and knew they had to borrow money from the grandparents every now and then, again because we were neither stupid nor deaf. But they never talked to us about it, we only found out from accidental eavesdropping or putting things together.

So sometimes it's just parents being stupid, not a privilege.

I hate the way typical Americans discuss money with kids. It's never specifics, it's always abstract. "oh, we don't have a enough money." Or, "you should consider yourself lucky you were born into a fortunate family."

It creates all sorts of problem for kids when they hit the real world. Text book budgets aren't much better. Let the kids, our family makes $x and saves y%, and if you're in the same ballpark, that's how you'll live.

u/FlowersOfSin Dec 06 '21

I'm French and my mother's side is Swiss, if this has anything to do with it, but I believe I had a great financial education. However, I also believe there are ages at which you should tell kids things. Just like I believe parents should tell kids about sex before their kid is sexually active, I don't think a 6 years old is ready to learn that. Knowing that your parents don't have a lot of money, but having to learn that you have the choice to pay your credit card bill or your rent to me sounds like pointless stress on a 6 years old.

7

u/projecthouse Dec 06 '21 edited Dec 06 '21

I don't think a 6 years old is ready to learn that

100% agree. A 6 year old isn't, but a 16 year old is. I never knew how much money my parents made, and I never knew how much they had. I never knew about their debt, or their monthly bills, or any of it.

To make matters worse, minimum wage seems a like a lot of money to kids when it's all "Play" money. It was plenty to go out to eat, and buy a few things when your parents pay all the real bills.

But, my first real job, which was a lot more than minimum wage, felt like very little compared to what I was expecting. I had no idea how much living would eat up your salary.

Nintendo, instead of microtransactions, just re-releases old videogames for $60 and makes them limited time specials. And then refuses to do any backwards compatability and goes after emulators and fan projects for literally no reason other than to shit on people's work.

Also has a shitty online service which is borderline extortion.

People have literally made millions of dollars just by posting Mario Party minigame compilations on YouTube, so who the fuck knows how any of this works really?

Back when next to every other game publisher (even the more shitty once) even put in writing that playing their games on Youtube channels is cool with them Nintendo came out with their special revenue sharing program which gave Nintendo 40% of the revenue as well as a 3 day review period to inspect new videos before they are published:

Content creators not part of the program got regularly C&D'd or got their monetization disabled. They even used that against none Let's Play content like news at times.

The terminated this a few years back but still shows how weirdly shitty and out of touch the company is.

it's obviously a joke about how Nintendo is lawsuit happy. If anyone can't see this then they're the type of people who fall for fake news.

When I was a younger person I worked at this small mom and pops diner. One day, a young suit came into to eat, they were pleasant, talkative, and inquisitive. They studied the menu for a while, ordered their food, ate. And when they got up to pay, they asked to see the owner/cook. When the owner came out they complimented the meal, thank him for the food, and then served him a cease and desist order. The diner served a child's pancake in the shape of mickey mouse's head. The paperwork threatened to sue them for well more than the business was worth. True story. In Disney's defense, the diner did call it a 'mickey pancake,' in the diner's defense, fuck Disney.

Ouuuuuuch. I never respected disney due to their historical treatment of women, pocs, and whatnot in their movies. Even when i watched their movies i never worshipped them.

At that point I’m sure no one would have noticed if someone ‘accidentally’ tripped him up on the way out the door. I mean, hey, mistakes happen!

Disney would probably sue that whole town, crush it financially, buy up the land for a bargain and use it to film the next Star Wars

I'm getting the notifications...I can tell you it's about a 50-50 split of people that think this is real.

At first I thought it was kinda funny...then I realised these people will believe whatever news they read and that's depressing.

What happened to critical reading and analysing a source?

u/Desperado2583 Dec 06 '21

Currently hundreds of dumbasses are camping out in Dealey Plaza waiting for JFK Jr. to return from the dead so he can run as vice president to Donald Trump.

u/RedditedYoshi Dec 06 '21

I mean look at the sentence composition, it reads like a classic dry joke with intentionally bastardized grammar; set-up and punch line. Then you start to logically think about the career suicide of an enormous, global company's CEO directly suing a child over a handmade toy, I mean... If that shit's real I will eat my humble pie, don't get me wrong, but there's no fucking way it's real.

u/SenseiMadara Dec 06 '21

Most students say "The fuck do I need analysis and this shit for"

For this. Exactly for stuff like this. The fact that these people are even allowed to have a valid opinion is so fucking stupid
