      It would be ineresting to see a STUDY on this. While I agree it is not good for kids to see -- we also need to see correlation before we jump into things.

      I still think that a rating system for youtube and online videos is needed to aid in filtering for age appropriateness.

      Unfortunately very few political decisions (and this kind of thing is always political) are made basd on data or research.
  • "Parents would be horrified to think that people are sneaking into their house to encourage their kids to build a bong or to chug on beer at age 13," Walters said.

    "The fact is those people are sneaking into your house through your Internet connection on your computer," he said.

      Responsible, internet-aware parenting is necessary--you wouldn't let a stranger in your house to talk to your kids, so why are you letting them view these videos?

    Braids around the Globe
    Main theme - Global Travel
    Goals

    * to become familiar with different locations / cultures around the world
    * to participate in the Vendee Globe trip (see below)
    * to follow-up by creating our own Global Adventure


    Dubbed "the Everest of Yacht Racing", the Vendee Globe is the ultimate in single-handed endurance: around the world, single-handed, non-stop with no assistance from shore.
    The Vendee Globe spans 25,000 miles, ~100 days, France to France, leaving Antarctica to starboard, starting in November 2008.
    Rich Wilson is the ONLY American registered for the 2008 Vendee Globe.
    The first race was held in 1989-90, and has been run every four years since the 1992-93 event.
    Two sailors have been lost at sea since the race began in 1989, and others have been dramatically rescued.
