Don’t make me the villian for your child

Image created by j4p4n

I’m not sure if quite a few parents nowadays are starting to feel entitled, far to stressed out or just do not really want to be a parent in the first place but I am noticing much more that parents are using other things to take the blame so they do not need to parent anymore and as much as the saying “it takes a village to raise a child”, it is bullshit to blame the village for not doing your job.

So my story starts in a small cafe I enjoyed going to at times which serves quite nice chicken meals where a mother comes in with two children and some shopping. I am not sure how long it takes to order or what they ordered but after I started to eat I heard the woman say to her child something along the following.

Fallout 76: My Review

TL;DR: It is a fun game as long as you do not expect it to be like your typical Fallout game and that you do not rush right to the end. Buy on Amazon.

Welcome to Appalachia

If there is one game series I have had a 180-degree turn on with my opinion is the Fallout series. series but before I get onto my review there are a few things I have to say about Fallout itself as this ultimately changes my review and these opinions about Fallout are how I see it – not always how others see it.

Gener8: Earn as you browse

This is a review with a referral link. Should you sign up with the referral link I am given a few “points”. Sign up.

Any extra always helps.

Any extra always helps.

For a short, while now I have been trying out a service called Gener8 that has a simple goal in mind – they will replace all the adverts you see on websites with their own and instead of the owner of the website being paid, you are. 

Ethics aside about blocking adverts from websites that the owners may be relying upon to keep the website open the service itself is a pretty good idea in theory. It is your data, your browsing habits so you should be earning from it.

Who cares if you have a drink in your hand?

If there is one thing I do not understand when it comes to social settings is why people seem to make a massive fuss over if you are drinking alcohol or not and in the case where you are not drinking alcohol you are “boring” and ruining the fun. Well to those people it might surprise you but there are a lot of people who do not want to get drunk for whatever reason it may be and just because they are not doing so doesn’t mean they are not apart of whatever is going on. If you need to drink to be able to have an enjoyable time you likely have a lot more problems than just “needing a drink to be social”.

Plans for 2018

I have no idea how long it has been from when I last updated Tweaked for your Pleasure but I figure it’s worth speaking a bit about the changes I will be making on this website which I am aiming to start doing this year.

The first thing is soon I will be updating the website with new rants weekly. These rants are ones I have had for quite a while but one of the main issues I have had right now is making a cover image for each one even if they are only made in MS Paint although I now have a solution ready for this. I will also be doing monthly short stories from ideas found on Reddit as I did for the last one I posted a very long while ago.

Why the sugar tax will fail

Why the Sugar tax will fail

Why the Sugar tax will fail

I don’t think there are many people who honestly don’t believe there is an obesity issue going on in the world and an issue that will take a massive mindset to change with education being the major thing that will be able to help but one of the ideas that have been floating around is the idea of a sugar tax (or “soft drinks industry levy”) which for the last two weeks or so officially started in the United Kingdom.

The logic behind this is pretty simple in that if you increase the price of sugar products that one of two things will happen. The first being the price of the drinks, foods etc will go up and the products that have less sugar or none will be cheaper and people will go over to buying them. The second is companies start using less sugar in order to keep the price around the same.

My child is special!

Please ... be quiet

Please … be quiet

Its a simple fact of life that biologically most people are able to have children and in our modern society for those that want children but unable to do so naturally could adopt a child (although I will not go into the fact most people want babies and leave actual children to stay in the care system) but society needs to learn that not everyone wants children and even more so not everyone think children are all that special. 

I’m not sure if it is because parents desperately want social validation from other parents that they did the right thing or that they are having the perfect life according to the life script but trust me when I say there are people that do not want to hear about it.

What have we became?

Just put the phone down, okay?

Just put the phone down, okay?

I doubt very few people will disagree with me that driving can be hard work and even more so when you are first starting to drive by yourself if you can not avoid flashing lights or a random beep then you really should not be driving.

I read an article the other day on the BBC (Signal-blocking phone pouches’ for St Patrick’s pupils) where a school gave up with an idea where they would give their students special bags that is able to block mobiles signals from working so they will not get any phone calls, text messages, emails app alerts or social media notices and in theory this idea is not a bad one … until you think that the students they are giving this too can not just turn off their phone or hell turn it to silent.
