Im a wild child of the night, i love my friends n family,michael jackson,movies,seshes,piercings,marlboro blues,nike,red n purple,cute guys,crazy drunken nights,comfy couches,tekken,my cats,ipod/iphone,tats,grape soda,energy drinks.
last year i changed heaps, i write Vader oh and half the time i don’t know what’s goin on with me.
It’s funny you say that, BrishHobo, because I was thinking to myself that unless Chantelle is about 7 her parents should just drop her off somewhere in canyon country, and just start over with a new child.
I quit reading whatever Chantelle was talking about before I got a migraine.
Caroline…I don’t quite follow you. So your father said he wouldn’t take you to get some smokes…at the age 16…and you got mad…and you threw your wallet in the air and it landed on…the station? What station? BP? First off, nobody goes to BP anymore. Secondly, how did your wallet manage to land on the station? Also, why did you throw it up? People that are pissed usually throw stuff on the ground. When you throw stuff up…it means you’re celebrating. As if it wasn’t bad enough…you had to use our taxpayer money to get yourself of a roof you climbed on? Everything about this chick screams crazy.
As for the last picture. Obviously they need to “Study Abroad” a little more.
I love reading the comments of you mouth breathing, slack jawed morons; scoffing at Chantelle’s note, proclaiming a lack of intelligence with your poorly written out thoughts against something that, when you look beyond the poor grammar and spelling, is observant and insightful.
She sounds like a typical pre-teen. I was that self-absorbed and ignorant at her age, too (hopefully she’s under 15, lol) She can’t spell, but she’s complaining about her parents telling her to go to school? That in itself is worthy of Lamebook, lol!
Caroline, stop repetitively calling your father a “c&nt”, when he was doing a favour for you. Just a thought!
@MikeyMike – If you want to be pedantic about grammar then you should know that the sentence “Retard.” isn’t a legitimate sentence. A legitimate sentence requires a verb, but you’ve used the slang meaning of retard, which is a noun. I’ll let you join the dots.
As for the rest of you Mouth-breathing, slack-jawed (thanks go to MikeyMike for that one) morons, my reasoning is simple.
Yeah, what Chantelle wrote is your usual angst-ridden teenage diatribe, but the clarity of her thoughts is refreshing for someone of her assumed age. She’s reasonable. Most kids whine about being forced to go to school and complain about being harassed by their parents to do homework, however, Chantelle goes several steps further by producing a very reasonable counter argument. She then goes on to describe how her parents unwillingness to empathies with her point-of-view is unreasonable and is causing a rift in her and her parents relationship. Again, she goes further by hazarding a guess at what further personal issues could arise from this in future.
Fact is, academically she doesn’t seem that astute but her emotional intellect looks goods.
As for you people, if it looks smart it must be smart… and vice-versa.
I think the United Nations would have something to say in response to her “very reasonable counter argument”. For instance, education is a human right and education should be compulsory because if a kid’s parents aren’t going to stand up for the kid’s rights (by making them go to school) then somebody has to.
It sounds like maybe her parents are a bit hard on her when she screws up but her attitude is not going to help her at all.
Sounds like she has parents that give a f*ck about her.
@Joe as for her having a “very reasonable counter argument” what are you smoking and can I get some? You sir are the retard. Not only does it seem her parents care (maybe they are a bit hard but hey some are) but by LAW they have to make her go to school. Now that doesn’t mean she has to learn as her post shows she is not but it is a parents responsibility to try and make her learn.
Most teenagers go through a phase like this, luckily for me there was no facebook/myspace to publish it on when I was growing up. Bad enough if you’re a stupid teenager “raging against the machine” but to have it put on blast and kept for prosperity would of sucked growing up.
@EmKitteh – I can’t see what relevance your first paragraph has in this discussion. Her argument was in reference to her parents attitude towards her performance. This is clear from the fact she elaborates greatly on the pressure to perform rather than the actual attendance of school (which was mentioned briefly). The fact she mentioned a reluctance in attending school was a consequence of her parents detrimental attitude.
Her “very reasonable counter argument” was that she would like the education provided for her but for her parents to be a source of support rather than a point of contention.
And she’s a child, she’ll spend the next decade or so learning to deal with situations amicably. The point of failure lies more so with the parents.
@Miss Shegas – How can I move on when someone on the internet is WRONG!
@Mispeld – I was commenting on her ability to express her thoughts well in-spite of her poor spelling and grammar, as well as highlighting the fact that most people commenting here are as thick as the subject supposedly is.
What the fuck are you on about? If your intention was to state the obvious, well done, gold star for you.
The ability to express her thoughts in-spite of her poor spelling and grammar is what the fuck I’m going on about. If it takes someone 2 or 3 times reading what you post, then you have lost your ability to express your thoughts. No matter what she was trying to say about her parents support or pressure for school was lost the moment she used are for our. If you are going to bitch about your parents getting on you for doing shitty in school, the first thing you need to prove is that you can do it without the bitching from them. She failed miserably in that. She is lucky her parents give a fuck about how she does in school and that they get on her for doing poorly. It shows they care what happens to her when she grows up and that they most likely don’t want her to have to be stuck working at a job saying, “do you want fries with that” her whole life.
Actually, now that I think about it, I agree with JoeAckney. Had what she said been more clear, and her spelling/grammar up to par, she would have made a lot more sense. I think she’s definitely insightful, but her poor grammar and inability to express her thoughts more clearly is what’s holding her back.
@ Mispeld – You have a serious problem with keeping the subject in sight. Why do you keep mentioning the fact that her parents care for her… of course they do! That was not in dispute. Though, I commend you on starting your comment addressing the subject, you might have gone off on a tangent soon after but I think you might be getting the hang of this.
For the record, I had no problem reading what she wrote as I feel her monologue progressed logically. But I agree with you, if someone has to re-read what you wrote in order to understand your thoughts then you’ve failed to communicate effectively. Socrates himself extolled the ability to express one’s self in plain speech. However, the target audience takes precedence here. If that note was on her Facebook page she will more than likely adopt a casual language, a language used and developed while speaking with her friends, of whom, I would imagine, would be the majority of her Facebook ‘audience’.
Joe it might be the fact I’m on Lortab. I should of set each of those thoughts apart. I was disagreeing with you while also being a bit pissed at what she put. Each part should of been separate. As part of commenting on lamebook is agreeing with or making fun of/disagreeing with whatever it is that has been posted on lamebook.
Dukey Smoothy Buns – I don’t know her age. The general perception of Chantelle is that she is young. My discussion was to challenge peoples unduly perceptions regarding the dearth of her intellect, without really addressing the content. A good speller with fancy words don’t mean that that person is clever.
Mispeld – Fair point. Hopefully, if/when she enters higher education (assuming she isn’t already in it), she’ll be able to create a learning environment more suitable for herself given her distance from her parents. Hopefully.
Well, based on your mastery of Wikipedia, I’ll have to defer to your expertise. But my question still stands: Regardless of the “emotional intellect” of her rant, what makes you think her parents are the bad guys?
(1)Actually, you’ve just exemplified my entire point.(1)
(2)What you said was Grammatically correct, appropriate vocabulary was used and what words you used were spelt correctly. However, the content was weak; you make a statement without justifying your position and provide no logical reasoning.(2)
Without these things your claim is unsubstantiated. This either is due to a lack on intelligence, laziness (you can pick that one if you like) or, more obviously, an invalid point.
To help you understand what I mean I’ve labelled the above paragraph for you.
(1) – is my statement
(2) – is my reasoning <— the part all your comments lack.
Chantelle's post, contained items 1 and 2, with logical links between separate clauses.
@ JoeAckney, wikipedia is a horrible source. You should never use it. Most people know this. This made your troll comment invalid.
Also, don’t call other people f*gs. Do you think you’re so much better then everyone else? Are you really hateful towards gays? Do their life decisions bother you so much that you have to use that word?
Can someone PLEASE accuse someone else of being like Hitler so we can invoke Godwin’s law and close the argument?
It’s 5.40 am here and I haven’t slept all night. I thought I’d come here to read the posts and the (generally) amusing comments. Instead I get some tw*t being superior, smug and self-satisfied about humorous comments on a humorous site, and everyone else getting dragged into it.
It got very dull about 40 posts ago.
@dinosgorawr F*gs doesn’t really mean gay person anymore.
@Icedcoffee, I like Joe too, that’s why I am happy that Mis[tres]s Shegas gave us permission to keep Her/ Him.
@ Joe, the reason I haven’t given you any reasoning is clearly stated in comment number 78. How the hell do I begin my argument when you say someone is insightful for their age and you don’t even know their fucken age.
I can’t believe I spent the last 30 minutes going through these comments lol. Although, as a f*g, I thoroughly enjoyed Chantelle’s interesting ways of spelling “our” and “pressure”… It made the half post I could get through entertaining.
Perhaps our many conversations are lame.
We folks only do that which fills our need.
All spouted rhetoric is but a game.
For all these posts are that on which we feed.
Someday all our silly antics might alter,
But would that make the internet more fun?
I say no, we must not ever falter.
You can fight, but we will not be undone.
The shades of stupidity must be unfurled.
Because revelation allows us to combat
The retardation that afflicts the world.
I, for one, will not be another wombat.
Go ahead, make your jokes, we are a rock,
And just to please me, suck my fucking cock.
I can’t read that, I just can’t, and I can’t be fucked reading most of the comments. Bad day. At a glance, I see some of my cronies have been entangled in what appears to be nonsensical argument with JoeBlow or whatever, and without reading a thing, I can pretty much guess that Joe’s been stirring it up.
I like to think Chantelle’s parents submitted her for that. What a prick.
Also, I’d like to say she’s probably 12 years old and, for that reason, I forgive her for her soul-destroying use of ‘are’ as ‘our’ repeatedly. But then I remember that I’ve known the difference between ‘are’ and ‘our’ since I was 5, like the rest of the world, and my urge to push her off a cliff to remove her from the gene pool remains intact.
I can sort-of understand the point JoeAckney is trying to put across; just because someone’s grammer and spelling makes your eyes bleed, does not always mean that the message contained within is not worth trying to understand.
But seriously, she’s not doing anything to assist herself in actually communicating whatever point she was trying to make. We have adopted standardised spelling and grammer to encourage better and easier communication; if you cannot even manage the basics of this or you are not willing to put the effort into constructing proper sentences, don’t expect anyone to try to decipher your message, regardless of how deep and meaningful it is.
That’s my position, anyway, JoeAckney. That is all.
BTW, apologies if I’ve mis-typed anything. Why do I have to hold the Right mouse button down to type?
‘How can I move on when someone on the internet is WRONG!’ (comment 45)
‘My discussion was to challenge peoples unduly perceptions regarding the dearth of her intellect..’ (comment 63)
with reference then to this pompous and at times unnecessarily clerical language, i would like to highlight the most idiotic, conceited and irrelevant chunk of your verbal diarrhoea, in which you have the temerity/complete lack of self-awareness to start a sentence with:
‘Socrates himself….’ (comment 53)
on a website that makes fun of facebook and the largely low-brow humour that it throws up.
in light of the above, i was referring you to the most famous quote in relation to the life of socrates (as a scholar and a gentleman you’ll understand). the oracle at delphi supposedly told him, ‘no man is wiser than socrates.’ although perhaps if you don’t quite understand what i’m getting at, i’ll point you in the direction of one of his other well-known apothegms:
‘i only know that i know nothing.’
i think you’d do well to bear that one in mind, joseph.
Do you actually believe that the best thing for Chantelle is for her parents to believe her argument that the reason she is a failure is because they force her to go to school and pressher her to try to get good grades? And that if they gave her the choice of going to school or not going to school, then all the presher would be lifted from Chantelle, she would happily choose to go to school and she would start to do well?
You say she is insightful and has a valid argument. But that is what her insight and arguments come down to – an immature, naive tantrum.
Maybe you do believe her. But if you are an adult and think like Chantelle, then she is better off than you.
I’m sorry but Chantelle seems to be just another self absorbed teen having a tantrum.
Firstly – one of her points is about her parents being upset at her when she is upset about not getting something that she wants. Well you can’t always get what you want so deal with it.
Also what teen hasn’t complained about how their parents want them to do well at school? If she claims she can do well at school without her parents telling her she has to go, and telling her that she should do well because the grades are going to affect her life then she should do well with the pressure. Because I hate to break it to the girl, but when you get to the real working world you need to learn to thrive under pressure or find yourself in the unemployment line. If you want less pressure prove that you don’t need it.
And yes respect works both way. But you can’t seriously expect your parents to start respecting you as a young adult until you show them a little respect as well.
Also the drugs and alcohol path is taken by kids who parents don’t give a crap whether they go to school, as much by kids who parents put pressure on them. If she feels she’s getting too much pressure then perhaps she should talk to her parents like an adult instead of having a whiny behind their backs spoilt brat rant.
Life is not made 10 times worse by parents alone even though it may seem that way to a girl who thinks the world revolves around her. If her parents are trying to get her to do well then its probably because they don’t want her to wind up on unemployment or worse.
So I really don’t see where in any of that she has made any insightful argument other than proving she’s a whiny teen who immaturely posts her issues on facebook rather than taking them up with her parents.
chantelle is just some typical little idiot. there is nothing insightful or intelligent about what she wrote. she’s another kid pissed she has to do things she doesn’t want to, which apparently she doesn’t do anyway,because you can at least learn the diff between our and are by just sitting in an english class. i’m not sure how anyone can see something with any substance in that paragraph,but you must be raspecting her mastakes as her own..do people not use spell check? those little red lines mean bad,try again..
and i love the flute,so beautiful ;]
and watch out for those fireies,they’ll get ‘cha.
@kaidee: The only time I condone lambasting someone’s grammar in an internet forum is when they use incorrect grammar or spelling when pointing out someone else’s grammatical/spelling error. So, kudos.
Chantelle is just like any other teenager in the world. Kudos to her parents for being involved and trying to pound some intelligence into her. Eventually, she’ll grow out of it and “raspect” her parents for what they’re doing for her now. Hopefully.
Caroline sounds like she should have taken a swan dive off the roof before tax payer money was wasted.
And I’m honestly surprised that this hasn’t come up in the last picture before now (120+ comments later). Remember American Pie and the whole “One time, at band camp” thing? I would feel very sorry for any guy who came after that flute! It’d be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway!
The world runs on assumptions, and the way that Chantelle types, I assume she’s metally handicapped in some way. What’s the point of having a valid comment, and able to write counter points, etc, when no one can read, or take seriously, what you wrote in the first place?
I almost gave up on finishing up Chantelle’s post but I had to soldier on with faint hope that it will evebtually make sense, but I was severly denied that opportunity. She did make sure that it was pointed out that education is needed coz reading that was torture, to say the least. || I don’t even have words to say regarding Caroline… I mean, I’m 21 and I don’t smoke and even if I did I certainly wouldn’t order my dying around when I’m dying for a fix… Let alone call him a cunt! Wow, I can’t fathom the infinite consequences of an incident like that, lol!!
I am sober now and after reading this entire comments section, all I can say is ‘A round of facepalms for everybody.’
BTW lets not hate on Joe, he/she provided us with lots of entertainment that night. Fuckwad is arguing about “She is insightful for her age” and doesn’t even know her age. She was just spouting the usual teenage bullshit … and I know that cos I was a teenager a few yrs ago. Joe you need to coma back again and regale us with with your insight.
