I think the bottom line in this situation is that parents need to teach their children that Facebook (and the internet in general) is not just something fun, it's a double-edged sword and can be quite dangerous. It can be used for good things, it can be used for bad. you can use it, or it can use you.

when your real name and personal information is involved, you don't start showing your rear end making horrible 'jokes' like you're AnonymousGuy1337 on some random forum (not to say that it would be okay there either, but ffs, common sense!). everything you say publicly (and sometimes not publicly) on FB and the rest of the internet absolutely can and will be used against you if someone has the inclination and/or opportunity to do so, so choose to be a jerk and play the fool at your own risk. :/

all right, now i've read through a couple other sources stating that what went down was an argument on Facebook where the threat (joking or not) was posted. That part had confused me, because I was wondering how a random Canadian woman would be able to find out particulars about a person via in-game information. this wasn't a chat log, it was FB comments.

No offense, but that school shooting was absolutely everywhere during that time. everywhere. If he was only playing his game during that time, i could totally see him being absolutely unaware of what was going on in the world, but i'll be damned if i couldn't blink for weeks without seeing a new post about the school shooting come up on my FB feed back then. He would have had to have been blind to have had no knowledge of the school shooting. i can't fault the lady for having reported it after what she discovered, nor can i fault the authorities for taking the threat seriously at that point in time. He said the absolute wrongest thing possible and is paying the extreme price for his lack of tact.

as The_Shpyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy has so helpfully lawyer'd, again, i can't see him getting the full 8 years he's potentially facing, especially if he's a first-time offender.

@AlexSays: if they've actually gone through the trouble of arresting him and throwing him in jail, though, they'd have to have found more than just that one line in a chat log via a video game.

hey guys, do us a favor and stop with the profanity, please — we do understand it's a touchy sort of topic, but that doesn't give you all carte blanche to haul off and let fly. :/

that said, I do agree with k8sMum: I'm sure the media and local townsfolk would be furious had the kid been serious, it's easy enough for him to complain now that he was just kidding when he's been caught by the authorities. he'll get a much lighter sentence than the media is letting on (if anything — he could wind up with just probation and time served, y'know) and that'll be that.

it depends. on a normal day, i usually fall asleep by 10 or 11-ish and am up anywhere between 3:30-5 am if I work job#1 those days, but Friday-Saturday-Sunday i don't get home until after 10, so on those days i'm usually passed out anywhere between 12-2 am and am again up around 5-ish to get to job#1 on time, again if i work it those days or not (i have shifts at job#1 four or five days a week usually). Sundays are my only day off from job#2, so some weeks i'll get home from job#1 and straight-up pass out until 9 or 10 at night, or even sleep straight through. it sucks, because that's the only day i really have to go shopping and/or get stuff done :(

when you're an adult, your sleep schedule largely depends on your work schedule u___u

@3DSFan134: I'm afraid Tasuki is correct — we allow threads like this about avatars, profiles, and signatures because they can be changed at will should a user suddenly be made to feel self-conscious about their content. a username, however, may only be changed once every 90 days, so if a user begins to have jokes made at their expense regarding their username, there's not much they can do about it for three months' time.

@Forbsz: That early on in the game, almost any boss you're having trouble with can usually be taken down simply by going back and grinding up a few levels. Also be sure to equip the best possible armor and gems you've got available so far if you can, don't forget to level up your abilities and stuff, and if necessary, make sure you've got good abilities selected for your party (i found myself rearranging my abilities a few times throughout the game to swap out ones i never used much for others that sounded more interesting).

I can't exactly remember how early on in the game that point is, but if Shulk's Monado premonitions and/or your normal party attacks are available to you, don't forget to use them to your advantage! Also, if you noticed during your attempts at that particular boss fight that it was a certain member of your party giving you trouble staying alive, use that information to switch things up to balance them out (putting HP-based gems on this character or that character, making absolute sure Shulk and Sharla have their HP-restoring abilities available, etc.), and stick close to them in battle so that you can force them to heal if necessary (when one of your party is in trouble and you're near them, you can button-press to control their next move).

In all seriousness, as everyone else has already mentioned, you can use electronic devices on flights while in the air but usually not within the first 10 or 15 minutes or so of takeoff or landing. They'll let you know when you're OK to turn your devices back on. No big deal. :3
