VIDEO: Dad Shoots Daughter's Laptop Over Facebook Post

The disgruntled teenage daughter of a tech-savvy, gun-toting father just got a very public lesson in respecting one’s elders.

“That right there is your laptop,” the father, named Tommy Jordan, says in a YouTube video while pointing a video camera at a computer laying in a patch of dirt and grass. “This right here is my .45,” he says, moving a pistol into the frame.

He cocks the weapon and shoots nine exploding hollow-point rounds into the laptop.

Okay, rewind.

Jordan’s 15-year-old daughter apparently wrote a Facebook post complaining about the chores she has to do at home and the overall hassle that her parents make her life. The father took exception to the public airing of grievances, and so decided to exact his own bit of public revenge, according to the video description, as well as Facebook and Reddit posts he appears to have made.

The role of social media in family life has been debated since social networks began to catch on, but Jordan appears to be taking a proactive approach.

In the video, which is titled “Facebook Parenting: For the troubled teen.” and looks to be shot from a tripod, Jordan sits down in a chair outdoors with a computer print-out in hand. He dedicates the recording to his daughter and, “more importantly for all her friends on Facebook who thought that her little rebellious post was cute, and for all you parents out there who think your, you know, kids don’t post bad things on Facebook.”

Jordan says he works in IT for a living (and, indeed, appears to run a company called Twisted Networx) and chastises his daughter for thinking she could hide the note from him with privacy settings. He then reads the purported note aloud after explaining, “since you want to hide it from everyone, I’m going to share it with everybody.”

In the note, the daughter says that she should be paid for the chores she does and her parents overwork her, criticizing them harshly. Jordan says that her complaints are mostly unjustified, and contrasts it to the work he had to do growing up.

After about seven minutes of preamble, he gets up from the chair and plugs the computer full of lead.

Jordan writes in the video description: “Maybe a few kids can take something away from this… If you’re so disrespectful to your parents and yourself as to post this kind of thing on Facebook, you’re deserving of some tough love. Today, my daughter is getting a dose of tough love.”

VIDEO: Arizona authorities furious over 215 mph Bugatti

Arizona police are seeing red over the driver of a Bugatti Veyron luxury car who seems to have given himself the green light to drive over 215 miles per hour on a public freeway.
A roughly three-minute video that surfaced this week purports to show the mystery motorist reaching those speeds during seven adrenaline-charged runs in 2009.
Bart Graves, an Arizona Department of Public Safety spokesman, said on Friday the driver would be thrown in jail if caught trying to repeat the same "incredibly stupid stunt."
But although the video shows the driver having been pulled over in Arizona at one point, it was not clear if the high speeds were reached in that state or in Mexico. Text at the end of the video states it was "shot south of the border."
A video of the sleek Bugatti Veyron speeding on a freeway has generated more than a million views since it was posted on video sharing site YouTube on Monday. The European luxury car model costs at least $1.5 million.
Text for the video describes the Bugatti as making seven runs, clocking speeds of 215 mph to 225 mph. Cameras placed at ground-level capture the event, and the frame occasionally shakes as the car goes by in a blur.
"No birds, reptiles or mammals were harmed," the video text said. "Everyone involved got the 215 mph ride of a lifetime."
The unidentified driver could be seen in a white racing jumpsuit with the side of his face shown. Authorities believe the video, although it just recently went viral, was captured in winter 2009 as its YouTube entry states.
"We have these clowns do this from time to time," Graves said. "They don't care about what could happen. They just want to toot their own horn."
The end of the video shows the driver at the side of the road, talking to an Arizona Highway Patrol officer. Text posted alongside the video states that the driver was not cited because at the time he was only going 80 mph. Graves confirmed those details in the stop of the unidentified motorist.
Graves said extreme speeding has no place on the roadways.
"If he's rich enough to own a car like this, he's rich enough to rent a racetrack in Tucson or Phoenix," Graves said. "The fact is, this is a criminal act."
He said a reckless driving conviction could result in jail time and the loss of the offender's driver's license.

JOKE: The Talking Dog

Thomas and his dog entered a bar. The bartender said, "No dogs allowed."

Thomas replied, "But, sir. Rover is a talking dog."

The skeptical bartender said, "Prove it and he can stay."

Thomas said to the dog, "Rover, tell him what you want to drink." Sure enough, Rover clearly said, "Gimme a beer."

The bartender said, "No way! You're a ventriloquist."

Thomas responded, "If you don't believe me, how about if I go to the bathroom and you can ask him yourself."

So he did and the bartender asked, "Well? What'll ya have?"

Rover clearly said, "Gimme a beer."

The bartender was still skeptical, so he pulled a ten-dollar bill from the register and told Rover, "This is yours if you go to the bar across the street and say the same thing."

When Thomas came out of the bathroom, he asked, "Where's my dog?!"

The bartender said, "I sent him across the street to another bar."

Furious, Thomas ran out of the bar, and found Rover out on the curb, banging a sexy poodle. Thomas shouted, "Rover! Rover? What are you doing? You've never done this before!"

And Rover said, "I've never had ten bucks before!"
