There is a lot in the news lately about what techniques different governments and terrorists organizations have used to torture their prisoners for information. I’ve read about everything from water boarding to beatings to sleep deprivation. However, I’ve got a much more efficient, terrifying technique; make them raise a hormonal teenager. I know that I pushed the boundaries of my parent’s rules, but I don’t think I did anything close to what teenagers are doing today. It is bad enough that teenage boy’s hormones are going absolutely crazy about girls, but add into that equation driving, drugs and alcohol and it’s enough to make anyone beg for mercy. It used to be that when a teen was at school or at home, you could rest easy; not anymore. If skipping school wasn’t bad enough, my teenage son has decided, in his infinite teenage wisdom, that it would be a good idea to start sneaking out of the house at night. After a quick internet search for SECURITY adt, I finally figured out a way to stop his escapes; arm the doors and windows. Since our system has been installed, my wife and I can go to bed knowing that if anyone tries to get in, or in our case, out, at night, we will be notified.
