And alcoholism is still a serious problem that will lead to people having problems in the future.
But I agree with 98. =P
With all the problems of today's youth (particularly the financial problems), I'm glad I don't drink.
Its not even like that. The only people you find in pubs are overweight middle aged men, drinking Beer or Larger. The youths [chavs] are across the road in the Children's playground drinking a £10 bottle of Smirnoff which was brought at one of the various newsagents on that one road.Also in London there are the pubs to each block. By the time a teenager has made it past one block hes had a few pints and is looking to brawl.
Englands parenting is shit. I promise you, its almost as if the Kids are doing the parenting. It kills me everyday to see this shit. I just want to go out and beat the shit out of every inconsistency I see in modern living.
Lol. I just cut the red rope.... There is no line, fucking free for all.
I just read the line about extra curricular activities. Its funny, they, the Government constantly try to impose these center's around every school in hopes that it will better the interaction of youths and the activities they get up to after school hours, all so they can try to lead them in the right direction.
But all it does is create segregation amongst the various nationality's. If your lucky the groups will get on well, but the language used by the workers as well as the kids is too formal to impose any sort of change. The workers are seen more as friends who make sure nothing gets out of hand, and sets up the pool table. And the so called activities teach nothing.
Its even less helpful when the kids go home and the parenting teaches even less than hitting a white ball with a stick, to hit multicoloured balls...
But this is one of the reasons why religion is good. Go to some of the "real" religious places, like where I live. You don't really have any of these problems, because everyone is concerned with morality, and if someone has a problem, the whole community will help the person out. It is a rare thing to see anything like that. Despite what you think about religion(I know most of y'all think of it as a load of bull), you cannot deny that it provides a stabilizing force in society, keeps society from turning into hedonism and decay.
