Family Values

Theoretical Thursday to you all, my little gingersnaps. In the news, a mom and her boyfriend take her five your old son with them on a bank robbery. The boyfriend armed himself with a knife, the mom wore a disguise and then buckled the five year old into his car seat. The mom went in to count the number of tellers and after she returned to the car the boyfriend robbed the bank. So they robbed a bank. At least they brought the kid with them instead of leaving him home. Those are family values right there in that family.

Mom And Boyfriend Takes 5 Year Old On Bank Robbery: Lauri Ruble And Brandon Stancliff Arrested

Here's a bad family outing.

An Illinois mother is accused of bringing her five-year-old son with her on a bank stickup led by her boyfriend, according to The Chicago Sun-Times

Brandon Stancliff allegedly armed himself with a kitchen knife and grabbed a bandana for a disguise while Lauri Ruble strapped her son into a car seatbefore they drove to Wauconda Community Bank in Island Lake in December.

Ruble allegedly left her child in the car while she went inside to count the number of tellers. When she came out, Stancliff went in for the robbery. Authorities say he stole $4,800.

A tipster looking to receive a reward called the police and reported the couple.

Now, child welfare officials are looking into the crime and considering if anything should be done about the boy.

Ruble, 30, has bonded out of jail while Stancliff remains locked up.

Rihanna has had "Thug Life" tattooed on her knuckles (like Tupac Shakur had on his chest), though she chose the girly color of pink for her tattoo. "Thug Life"? Really Rihanna? I'm sure you're not going to ever regret getting that tattoo on your hands where they will always be on display even when you try to dress up. *nods emphatically*

Tim Gunn would like us to know that he hasn't had sex in 29 years. He says it's very personal and then goes into the details of why he hasn't had sex in 29 years. Uh, Mr. Gunn? I could've gone my whole life and been perfectly happy never having known about your past and currently non-existent sex life. And next time something is "very personal", how about you don't share it during an interview that will be posted on all the major websites. Just a thought.

J.K. Rowling has edited the Harry Potter books to fix continuity and factual errors!

Like many books, J.K. Rowling has gone back and revised certain errors in the first few editions. For example, Rowling has revised small errors in her books such as Ron saying “I take one step forward and she’ll take me…” Rowling realized that since Ron is riding the knight, it would be impossible to move one space (knights move in an L shape). Knowing this, she changed the quote to “I make my move and she’ll take me…”

However, there have been things changed in earlier books in order to fix the continuity for later in the series. For example, in the first edition of the first book, Hog's Head was mentioned as the pub in the village. It was later revised because another pub, The Three Broomsticks is visited in later books in the series.

Another famous case of retconning a past book is J.R.R. Tolkien with The Hobbit. The chapter dealing with Gollum and the Ring was changed later in order to better flow into the continuty of The Lord of the Rings, once Tolkien decided that Gollum's ring was to become The One Ring, and cause all that trouble.
