What is your opinion about spanking children?

Children can be challenging to reason with, but if you are capable of taking the responsibility to have children in the first place, you can take the responsibility to raise them without resorting to physical violence. It not only misses opportunities for "teaching moments", but uses those opportunities to teach violence and disrespect. While I was being brought up by my own parents, my mother would spank me when I got into trouble. Because of this, my mother and I have never been too close. I grew up with a great disrespect for her and her methods for discipline. I understand she was doing what she thought was the best way to raise me, but that doesn't change anything. My father never once spanked me, but just talked to me with reason. I'm not saying physical discipline is the direct cause of this, but me and my dad have always had a great relationship. Even as a child I knew it was wrong. Yes this may not be the case for every child, but it is still morally wrong. Spanking is for the lazy/lousy parents who don't know how to discipline their child in a suitable manner. You should just talk with your child as an equal and help them to understand what the problem is.

Hella no I haven't.

We all have that friend who always brings up a mistake you made years ago, amirite?
Technically, you cannot do anything you do not want to do. Consciously (or unconsciously) you have to will your body to physically move. So on some level you have to want to, or your body would simply remain limp. Amirite?

Except for involuntary actions.

@VicZinc Like when your leg jerks at night? Are you sure their is no will involved even in these seeming reflective...

Yes, twitching, heart beating, breathing, blinking etc. Sure you can control all of these somewhat, but not entirely.

@VicZinc Are you saying that some people do not want to breath, or blink, but do anyways? I've heard of terminally ill...

Those are rare occurrences though when this post is directed to the general audience, and I am sorry for your loss.
A little kid playing the game who can hold their breath longer would like to be able to stop their breathing for a while longer than normal, but their will to live and natural reflexes tell them it's time to come up for air.
Either way, I'm not saying a person would want to do these things, but that it's not entirely possible as long as they have the will to live.

To this day, the people that used to bully me still take my lunch money. But it's okay as long as they don't mess up my order in the drive-thru, amirite?

This thread is way too serious, this is supposed to be funny. Now make me a sammich. No mustard.

Wow, you really hate getting banana in your eyebrow. Amirite?
The internet has given you some pretty good times, amirite?

4:20 should have been on the :D face wary smilie

This object has ruined more childhoods than Joseph Kony, amirite?

If by ruining childhoods you mean making the children fat from licking the cake batter off of the spoon yum smilie

Why on earth would we want to clone a woolly mammoth? Because we can? Because they would be a great attraction at a zoo? Those are not good answers. These creatures had their chance, and they went extinct. Screw 'em, amirite?
If you park somewhere on my street and no one knows you, you are then a shady person by definition. Heading to work today I caught two new vehicles (one as a white van) parked outside. Creepy!
Researchers are really close to making a car that drives itself. When they finally succeed, it will be really cool, but you will miss being "behind the wheel", amirite?

If this were released, it'd be years and more before the average consumer would be able to afford such technology.
