Speaking to my wife, I brought up the idea of sharing one of my interests with my 8 year old grandson. I thought I might teach him to fly model airplanes.

Holy Crap! Hearing this makes me ache inside. Please take him out and show him the great and cool things of the world.


saviorself
A Mormon is someone who is afraid that someone, somewhere, is actually having fun and enjoying life.


munchybotaz
Wouldn't want kids thinking about anything besides church, now would we. O_o

Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
Mormon 'lives' circle around TSCC, they Dare Not venture Outside The Box.

would there be any knowledge DGS couldn't later use for his merit badge 'exam'? That's preposterous, IMHO.

Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
I think what she's really saying is that he might end up like me. Someone who likes science and is always building gadgets and planes and little engines and things. You know, frivolous non-faith promoting things like that. Hobbies are not good in the TSCC. You are simply worshiping those earthly pursuits instead of seeking after celestial glory....yada yada...

Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
Just change your aeronautics a bit. Build model rockets together & try to reach Kolob. That should shut them up.


xyz
Wow.
I sure hope for your sake that puritan little DW [dear wife] knows how to have some kind of fun somewhere in her life.

Puritanism: "the haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy." (Mencken)


atheist&happy:-)
Yeah, living your life, learning new things, and discovering
your talents is frivolous. Life, your life, is for LD$, Inc.

They do ruin everything, because they demand total devotion. They ruin your clothes, music, appearance, reading, entertainment, hobbies (what hobbies, who has time?), education (or lack thereof for women), opportunities, etc. Worst of all, with their demands of obedience to petty rules, and dogma, they ruin you ability to choose, and think clearly, and critically, and live your own life.

It's not just individual lives they manage to ruin, but words like "family", and "love", and most of the time they ruin the entire state of Utah.

Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
Man, you gotta fly R/C with him, I dreamed of flying R/C planes as a kid and it wasn't til I was an adult that I actually got out there and did it (money/confidence). I can only imagine how awesome it would be to have a dad or granddad teaching me how to fly as a kid, do it and screw BSA and TSCC!


No Mo
Swearing is fun.
Even "holy crap" seems Mormon to me. The only place I seem to hear the expression is in Utah. Swearing is fun sometimes. Try it. "Holy S&^%." (Maybe not in front of the eight year old.)

Well, now you *have* to do it. That sounds like such a fun hobby.

I can hear my mother saying those words, btw. All fun is superfluous. Non-member friends are investigators. Goals not centered on the Church are just distractions. Boo.

Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
Wow. That's lame.

They just have to multitask everything into doing church crap.


T-Bone
Yikes!
That sucks!

Mr. Rogers said that play is a child's job. If he spends his childhood doing church stuff, that would suck.

If it takes his mind off the mind-numbing brainwashing cult, and teaches him something valuable, go for it! He needs to be having fun at his age.

Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
A couple of years ago I asked how many people knew of hobby shops in the Morridor, because I don't know ANY mormons with hobbies like flying R/C aircraft or building plastic models of planes & tanks.
There was a convert/TBM/BIC? (don't know for sure) from France in Sandy that had started a huge internet hobby shop--he had lots of complaints, but got it straightened out, then.....quit the business!

Build and fly I say, build and fly!

If it turned out Monson built 'em back in the day, there'd be no problem...

"Response: "Wait until he's a Boy Scout so he can at least earn a merit badge from it. Also I really don't want him to get obsessed with any frivolous things like that. Those things take kid's minds off the Church.""

Your...Dear Wife (DW) doesn't want to your 8yr old to get excited about anything unless it is church related.....

lso it's "frivolous" unless he's a boy scout??

Time to R E A L L Y rethink yours and your kids priorities....


druid
As a fellow RC pilot...
Yes, teach him to fly.

For those not familiar, RC flying is like a course in robotics.

Electric motors have taken over the old gas engines, on board cameras like the drones fly out of sight while you watch your lap top- there are all kinds of side interests in the sport.

One thing I notice, there are not as many RC clubs in Utah per cap as other states...guess why? It takes some time to go out and set up and gather with other RC people. In other words ...it competes with the church for time.

Ever noticed that about other hobbies in utah as well?


summer
Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
Does your wife have any hobbies? Anything that takes her mind off of church?

Enjoy your model plane flying time with your grandson. Kids love it when you share your enthusiasms with them. It teaches them to enjoy life and to find their own enthusiasms.


forestpal
Re: TSCC sucks the fun out of everything
Enthusiasm is contagious! Unless, someone has been pre-brainwashed against it. You ought to repeat your wife's admonition the next time she wants to have sex with you.

You and your grandson can make the planes for the Primary Children's Hospital, or for the ward talent/are show, or something.

Tell DW that your grandson will develop the manual dexterity necessary to be a brain surgeon someday.

Or, just give her a good sniff of glue.
