Why do people do such stupid things?

I was talking to my friend, and he sent me his 12 year old brothers facebook page. The kid used to be regular, but now hes all "Hardcore" and claims he's a Satanist. Not only does he not know the definition of Satanist, but he's more "Emo" than anything. I looked at a few of his pictures, and the damn kid claims he sticks thumbtacks in his arms and legs for fun, accompanied by pictures of said thumbtacks.

I merely posted "I hope you get Tetanus."

Why do people do this shit?

thumbtacking yourself is pretty awesome I've only gotten tetanus 3 or 4 times

seriously though he's a poser and he's not even pretending to be something cool.

Was that some sort of back door insult or something?

Zing. I love you.

edit: And there are much more stupid things to complain about, how an immature 12 year old wants to act and dress hardly matters.
Who dat?

If it is, I didn't intend for it to be.

I hate to sound like a prude, but he's 12 and he's out getting ****-faced and thinks it's awesome. I don't mind when people drink, but the fact he's started so damn early pisses me right off.

It's just that he used to be a really cool kid, then all of a sudden, BAM! Douche.

Drink your brain out at age 12, that's smart. His balls haven't even dropped yet.

Beat the shit out of him.

Ohhhh, now there's something to complain about, seriously.

Are you friends at all with this kid? Or do you know someone who is? Even if he's acting stupid, someone should try to help him out.

edit: Madcap, you freak. Stop giving advice that owns mine.
Who dat?

Yeah, but this sort of applies to my first post. Don't get me wrong, I actually agree with you, but Logic is relative here. He has his logical reasons why he should should drink, but by my logical standards (and probably yours, too), he's being a complete imbecile. Perhaps (if you want to get him to stop doing such wasteful things), show him how his logic is absurd. If you don't care what he does, then laugh he he will inevitably do something else stupid.

I would if I still lived in Ottawa, but I moved a few months ago and have only e-mail and MSN to really contact people there.

what's up with this "natural selection" fad? is the bulk of ug finally progressing through 8th grade science? if so, congratulations, my expectations have been surpassed.

as for the kid, there's not much you can really do. some people are just followers, they'll do anything that they think is cool. your friend, however, should beat some sense into him...that's the older brother's job.


My mind is going. I can feel it.

His brothers are now just as bad as him. I think it's really a parents or brothers job to show the kid he shouldn't do half the crap he does, but since the brothers are idiots and the parent is a moron, I guess their doomed
