    What do they say about being naughty at Christmastime? Isaac most likely learned his lesson.

    A Canadian dad, k_lid, sold his son's Guitar Hero III game (for the Nintendo Wii) on eBay for $9,100.01 after catching him smoking pot in the backyard with two of his "delinquent" friends.

    "Son, are you smoking pot?! Well, now I'm gonna sell your--"
    "You don't mean..."
    "Yes, your copy of GUITAR HERO 3!!"
    "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

    care to elaborate on how exactly this is "so great" a lesson about "how life works"? really just a rediculas situation, cant imagine how this will help the son, if he really needs help at all.

    I fail to see how the family getting 9 grand for a cheap game will teach the son a lesson about drugs. He'll probably get a ton of stuff for Christmas if that winning bid is for real.

    pot, IMO isn't that bad of a drug. although, pot is the "window" drug to all other drugs.

    No it's not the window drug...

    You could claim alchol is the window drink to becoming a acholic...

    that's just rediculious...

    No different then handing someone a mcdonalds cheese burger .. sapose that's a window to becoming a fat bastard requireing fork lift.... or giving someone the keys to a go-kart and stating that it's the window to the nascar hall of fame...


    Every person has thier own mind made up, if they are going to go any further that's thier fault... not the pot/weed/marijuana's fault....

    course everything would be a hell of alot simplier, people richer, less violence and shit happening if it was legalized...

    If he do, well then offcourse it want do any good.

    This is not about whatever pot is bad or not. A little pot will never heard, as long as you can control it.

    This is about his father telling him NOT to smoke pot because he is 15.

    So, why is this a news item? Because a father "tried" to sell a single game for the stupid price of 9K and failed?

    OK, the article was not terribly well written. I checked the actual ebay listing and all is much clearer now. Good for the father, nice profit there.
