Let’s face it, many of us joke about abuse from time. Most everyone has a memory of their mom/dad where it resulted in you crying abuse. The thing is most of us were joking when we cried abuse. Sadly, others were not. Harsh jokes can lead to a couple throwing fake punches at each other. Some couples throw real punches.

Dealing with Bullying Starts with Ourselves

Dealing with Bullying Starts with Ourselves

Nobody likes bullies. If you were to ask any adult out there what they think about bullying, they would say something along the lines of needing to stop the bullying. However, while just about every adult preaches this, many of them struggle to actually walk the walk without even realizing it. Our kids see this, and that is why bullying is still so prominent in schools.

A perfect example of adults exhibiting signs of bullying comes from the recent NBA All-Star game, or more precisely, the national anthem that was sung before the game. Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie decided to sing, rather unsuccessfully, the Star-Spangled Banner with a more sultry, jazzy influence. Needless to say, this rendition of the anthem was not received well by the general population.

Now, how does this apply to bul...

Autopilot Is Not the Same as Automated Driving

Today’s modern world has granted us all access to a lot of different and spectacular technologies. You can now print from any smart device without needing to plug a cable into the printer. If you have a Tesla, you can even summon your car from its parking spot. This is called Enhanced Autopilot and it allows Tesla vehicles to do some pretty amazing things.

However, this autopilot feature does not allow the car to drive itself, nor does it allow a driver to drive while drunk. This is a lesson one San Francisco man learned the hard way. Recently, one San Francisco man was pulled over by California Highway Patrol on the Golden Gate Bridge. The reason being, the car was stopped in traffic with the driver passed out behind the wheel.

When officers awoke the man, he assured them that everyt...

Do Video Games Lead to Violence: Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Lack of Communication?

Hate crimes, violence, and negatives attitudes seem to be a dime a dozen. In a victim and attacker society, we often look for who is to blame.

The story usually goes:

  • Find whose fault it is
  • Shame them into acting how society believes they should act
  • Act surprised when it doesn’t work
  • Repeat

Whatever side of the political meter you fall under, you can’t deny that this is the typical process for everyone.

So why isn’t it working? It’s not working for several reasons:

  • We’re not getting to the root of the problem
  • People like to jump to conclusions
  • There is no such thing as a normal standard
  • People like simple, easy to follow lists

One issue in particular, violent videos games causing violent reactions, falls victim to this exact way of thinking...
