  1. Argh, my dad went to some porn sites the other day. Grr. Now every like 30 minutes or so I get about 1-3 Internet Explorer pop-up ads out of nowhere. Any idea how to get rid of this?

    P.S.: I just got laid.woo!

    I got rid of it with AdAware ;-). I hate when my dad drinks then gets on my computer thinking he can just go and do what he wants. "Its my house Ill do what I want".. but the fact is it is my computer and I am the one that bought every peice of it, built it and paid over $1300 for it even IF it is running on his power bill.

    Parents can be such losers. Cant wait to move out (again).
    So can brothers. One time my brother was like "I want to use your computer" and I told him to wait, and hes like "you need to share!" so I told him yea ok so if I have to share my computer with you then you have to share that 2000 Red Mustang Convertible out there, and I don't see you letting me drive it, so STFU. Valid point or am I just nuts?

    It's always nice to be the oldest. You get treated differently (most of the time in a good way). I am the oldest as well and it is quite nice.

    Well my brother who is 28 is living with us right now and he has ALWAYS gotten treated beyond fairly. Nothing he does is wrong but the moment I speak up about how I feel I get my butt chewed out and end up in a fist fight with my dad, and my brother thinks he is God. Nothing he does is wrong but everything I do is crap. He can do the exact same thing I do and then he says its ok for him to do it and so do my parents but when I do it its wrong. I have the biggest hypocrit family in the world and they have the worst double-standards Ive ever heard of.

    Edited because of unacceptable language.

    Please watch you language on the boards...I don't care how upset you are keep it off.

    On the note of your family I am sorry to hear that. I know it can be hard to get along with your parents or siblings as we have all been there before, but there are ways of dealing with it. I am not sure what is best for you, but reading books, and just doing things outdoors helped me. Something to keep in mind.
