Made my son a one off kids size of the recent 12ozProphet x WOBF tee. Strangely (to me at least), all the kids in his junior high are all sweating Supreme and now that he showed up with that tee, a bunch of them were scrambling to figure out what 12ozProphet is.

 

I recall back when the first few 12ozProphet IRL relationships started happening. Since AOL was still the dominant force, the idea of that sounded so freakin crazy to me. Then we find out a few got married and some even had kids. Believe there are at least 2 mods that met their spouse on 12oz and had kids.

 

Ina ny case, many more of us are old enough to have kids and a few of those kids are old enough to at least be the same age as some of the younger Oontzers we've had over the years. (So crazy!).

 

Feel like its a matter of time before my own son is registered and talking shit on here, leaving me to decide whether to let him maybe have Dirty Dozen access or make him a mod so he can ban hammer so of the retards on here.

 

Anyhow, I welcome your insights into this very odd dynamic.

I keep thinking back to the wet t-shirt contest and the hilarious drama. While I'd want Oontzer Jr. to know of DAO and his wolf-whales, does Jr. really need to see mommy's pert tits when she was 23?

Having grown up experiencing two very very different sides of the parental divide regarding sheltering vs exposure with explanation, I tend to think the latter is most effective.

 

I think, though, it generates a very particular type of person. Every human I know who was raised in a similar sort of way in terms of being exposed to the adult side of life at a young age is usually a pretty straightforward, unrelenting, and self assured person. Sometimes it can lead to someone being a complete piece of shit, but ultimately I think that's on the parent to teach humility and context along with the exposure.

 

If and when me and the special lady pal have a lil one, I'm fine with them finding 12oz. I may not direct them here, but if they have pertinent interests, sure. I'd also be hard pressed to honestly believe that the youth are going to cognize internet communications in this same format that we all have.

Maybe not, but I do.

Tits or GTFO?

Yeah, I'm just thinking kids today are lazy. No way I'd hand them the keys to the tit vault. Gotta work for that shit, Oontzy Jr.

Do you still have all those?

 

Obvs that thread is dead.

 

 

Lol. No. I'm thinking that the internet archive caught most of that era of 12oz. Too lazy to look.

Boogie hands, but it depends on the kid, and your relationship.

I always considered this a safe place to let loose amongst like minded individuals.

Some worlds aren't mean to collide.

Its possible those threads are still on here. Unlikely the images survived but we have threads that go back pretty damn far.

 

That said, we do have the wet t-shirt images archived on our server somewhere. No doubt @psm026 also has copies on a hard drive somewhere.

HA.

 

Honestly, just tried to look on wayback machine to see whats there in general, but I don't think you can view threads without logging in, but I don't think any of the code to authenticate the login works through wayback. So outside of scans of the thread lists, there's no way to see what was in threads when Raven locked the whole forum behind login.

My daughter is a senior this year. She’s too busy watching YouTube videos and snap chatting. Don’t think kids these days have the attention span to sit and post on a forum for several hours each day. It’s too much work.

Welcome... not sure I've seen you around in a minute.

 

I feel you on the attention span comment. Also have a daughter in HS.

I think this expands larger than children. The ease of finding and access to information has led people to a path of propensity for immediate gratification. It's not just kiddos that "don't have time" or are "too busy". Here's a really good article I found months ago about the word "busy":

 

https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/busy-new-stupid-ed-baldwin-sphr-gphr

 

In summary when you're "too busy" for something it just means it's not a priority to you. You can be "busy" doing anything at any time and the measure of whether or not that prevents you from doing anything else is personal choice. Without being too crotchety, kids need to man the fuck up these days and do stuff that is hard. Too many wusses being raised by wusses. Kids should be here on 12oz. There is no "easy mode" in the world. The sooner you enjoy reality the better you will be at being comfortable in it. That doesn't mean smoke weed with your 7 year old kid so don't read too far in between the lines there.

 

Being "too busy" on instagram to "hang out on a forum making posts" just means that the forum doesn't give the dopamine hit they're going to receive from instagram.

 

When this forum was poppin off the most, there were no alternative social areas to go. Myspace was a thing but you couldn't get too gritty there because it was "public". The world is filled with "preview" "demo" and "beta" grade experiences these days to the point to where when someone reads that short blurb on twitter it's not a short blurb anymore, it's a full tweet.... it is the full experience. If you looked back through some of the large discussion threads on this forum you could never compare anything that's happened on twitter/instagram/facebook wall to the discussions had here and I think that's what people don't understand about forums. It's a place for a discussion, not a cheap interaction, not a comment on a photo, not a short note about how your shit was curly, soft, and light brown colored like cat shit...... that's what is lost, people are consuming data in small chunks now because the expectation is there for short sprints of entertainment.

 

I'm ranting though, I could go on and on about it. When was the last time any of you read a good book? I've been doing this thing where I buy books I want to read and don't read them for months. Recently I got into reading before bed and putting the book down when I'm too tired to keep my eyes open. I just got to thinking about books because I feel like I don't hear people talking about reading anymore. It takes effort to be thoughtful and have meaningful conversations.

Agree with most of what was said. Really forgot how good books could be since I've only read online since about 2005, and sporadically before that. Just signed up for audible the other day and holy shit, just listening to an actual well written book while driving is worth 10x more than the best blog posts. Feeds back into what you wee saying about condensing thoughts into 140 characters ,VS an actual online discussion.

I've been doing the same thing...in 2017 i read 4 autobiographies and 1 separate book..im currently reading a 5th autobiography right now, but ive got roughly 40-50 books that ive bought from used book stores that I haven't gotten to...they're just sitting on the shelf collecting dust...about 5 months ago i cut out social media and my reading picked up since then, but being on my phone looking up videos or reading news articles ( and a lot of click bait articles) has consumed much time.

Yeah, I'm a little the same. My FOMO isn't related to facebook or social media but news and short-form analysis. I read books all the time, just finished a 360 page history book two days back. However I would have finished it much quicker if I didn't keep stopping each chapter to check the news (and forums 12oz, home brewing and mountain bikes...)

Haha, it sounds like there are disciplined folks still in the world. I consume a lot of tech news in short sprints (arstechnica.com). I, also, have the same problem of doing a lot of reading online. I read probably more than the average person by a long shot but none of it in the past 20 years has been books, it's all been online. People keep telling me that audio books are awesome but I haven't tried them yet.

 

Having a big collection of books is pretty cool in itself I think. One of my old roommates who was also my manager at work had his entire living room full of books. It looked like a study in there, every wall was a book shelf filled to the top w/ books. It was always a talking point when new people were in the house and there was always some book on the shelf they liked or knew. He had the entire Western Canon.

 

Anyway, I don't want to derail too far from the subject here so I'll regroup to a time when I was in elementary school. I had a drive to read so I'd spend a lot of time in the library. This was in the early 90s before America experienced some of the more stupid things that happened in the late 90s and early 2000s so there were books on pyrotechnics in the library at my elementary school. I was a bit sharper than the average kid my age so I knew very well what pyrotechnics were. I checked those books out and learned how to make colored flames and sparks all without my mom ever knowing. The point I'm bringing to light is that when I was curious as a young boy I was able to find information in the library, in a book, by just putting the effort forth to do it. Now, a larger quantity of information is available in an easier to use format.... smart phones. The connection I intend to make is that you cannot 'keep a kid off of 12oz' these days with how the internet is. I use the term "12oz" loosely because you could fill the blank in with any site that contains material you might question for a child.

 

To go a step further, you have no control over what your kid sees at school from the other kid in his class who's parents are rednecks..... so restricting the reading/entertainment material may only address a small part of the issue.
