13-year-old pays for escorts, plays Halo

This story is too funny not to share.

It seems a 13-year-old Texas kid ordered a credit card for himself from his dad’s account. He took his friends on a spending spree, and at one point ordered two $1,000 a night escorts/hookers.

“Asked why he ordered two escorts, Ralph said he thought it was the thing to do when you win a “World of Warcraft” tournament. They told the suspicious working girls they were people of restricted growth working with a traveling circus, and as State law does not allow those with disabilities to be discriminated against they had no right to refuse them.

“The $1,000 a night girls, sensing something up, played “Halo” on the Xbox with the kids, instead of selling their sexual services.”

The kid was convicted of fraud for the credit card thing, but the story is one of the funniest I’ve read in a long time.

I’m bored of Facebook

I realized the other day that I don’t spend nearly as much time on Facebook as I used to. I still use it to keep in contact with friends, to plan events and what not, but I don’t spend as much time surfing it as I used to.

I saw this video, which kind of sums up why. Note, I do have some applications on Facebook, but it’s generally ones like movies, books, Boggle, etc., things I would do or talk about if I was talking to friends in real life. But I keep away from zombies and werewolves and things like that.

Also, if you ever receive an application request from me, it’s probably because I hit the wrong button, so just ignore it.

P.S.- I realize it’s ironic that I use Facebook to promote people to read my blog, and yet I’m writing this post.
