@theacidskull: Incorrect. :P She was never based on me and is actually quite a bit different than me. I simply took the name because she is my most prominent original character. I am:
Way more laid back.
Way less evil.
Way less vulgar.
Not a sadomasochist (much)
Do not have a split personality (much)
In comparison to the Amy/Joygirl character.
yeah, the Acidskull isn't EXACTLY me either, i just to MY characteristics and to them to the extreme. sounds like something YOU DID too , because instead of sating "i'm not Like This" you say "way Less".
Take this for an example. I"M an angry person, a really angry one, but i always have enough restraint to never actually hurt someone. THE ACIDSKULL is an angry person, and he has way less control over what he does does
@theacidskull: Meh, you can comment on and imagine a situation a hundred times but you'll never know what you -actually- are gonna do when it happens for real.
For a more serious reply I can honestly say I wouldnt frown on a parent for hitting his/her kid HARD if the kid was actively trying to stab said parent, although I would question the parents ability to properly raise a child. Punching the crap out off might be pushing it though. :P
I was implying that you'd love your kid so much you wouldn't harm him or her :P
Either ways i can see punching in a case where the kid comes at you with a knife but then continuing and beating him isn't going to help, just knock the knife out of his hand and be done with it :P. BUT most of the time i say a parent should NEVER HIT a kid, spanking and raising an ear is fine though most of the time. :P
