I think its a joke that this guy was arrested. United States is becoming a cookie dough country. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-making-carry-23-pound-paving-slab-miles.html A father has been arrested for child cruelty after punishing his teenage son by making him carry a 23-pound paving slab for miles. Military veteran Charlie Mayes, 40, from Douglasville, Georgia, told police he used military-style punishment because his son watched too many videos and didn't do his chores and school work. OK I think the 3:00 AM part is a little excessive but since when is a 23 pound slab considered massive? I don't want to make this into "in my days" but if I didn't do my chores I would have gotten a much more tougher punishment than this. At age 16 I could have carried a 23 pound slab all day long. 4' 2" is small for a 16 year old but still.
