Parents think I was a WoW/BF2/SC addict, dis-serviced comcast.

Dad cold-shoulders the topic, Mum doesn't like to talk about it: It sucks playing with bots.

Any tips on brown nosing it back? Grades are at their best with AP and everything. Dad's excuse is I need to get outside more, even though I'm in the effing boy scouts. Its been about 8 months, and I'm going insane with jealousy whenever lunch table talk favors Internet exploits.

Desktop only, parents are frugal, and I only have 50$ from neighborhood jobs. Getting a job for a laptop for internets at cafe seems far fetched.

Burn the house down, and when your parents get their insurance claim make them pay for interweb.

Maybe explain to them?

if they cold shoulder you, tell them this is something you really want to talk about. If they want to cold shoulder you on this, tell them you'll cold shoulder them when they ask you where you've been all night since you didn't have internet.

In all honesty, my parents are like that too, although I have little reasons to go outside (even though I enjoy it)

They all think I'm gonna get kidnapped or something, I just keep telling them that half of you guys live in the U.K.

Yo,

Hey Dude,

Your best bet is getting them whilst they are sat down at the dinner table, over a dinner conversation is really bought forth and people really take it to thought.

Your best bet is asking for the internet back, or what you can do in order to get it back, ask if there is any chores that you can do around the house on a daily basis in order for the internet to remain.

Clean their cars on the weekends, wash up the dishes, don't directly let them know your cleaning up and doing these things.

Good deeds don't go unoticed, after a while your parents will be really pleased with you, when you've got them on a good level point across the good things about having an internet connection.

Use some of these as examples :

1 : Long distance communication between friends and family.
2 : Sites and resources to help you finish homework, and getting needed materials for work at school.
3 : Start cooking or create a hobby, and say you need the internet as a medium to gather all your needed information for materials etc.

There are many ways you could go about it, but the best thing is just talking t o your parents in a well mannered tone, if they don't say yes today don't hammer them constantly until they say yes.

Ask them every two or so days, it'll get to them eventually.

That's my two cents good luck dude !!

well.. my dad keeps on saying 'all you do is play them shoot 'em up games' and 'you will get bad posture' and 'go outside more, get more exercise'

the thing is: They arn't shoot em up games. Screw posture, mine is good enought. and I AM NOT FAT! if anything, i am underweight, and i walk to school.. thats how i get my exercise.

Now my dad wants me to change school cause my school is a technology school... and he doesnt want me to use the pc.

well.. i want to become something on a pc, meybe work in a pc shop when im older.

So you should: Make pcs, and they might think 'thats what he wants to do' and they will give you back your internets...

OR you can always burn the house down.

Tell them that without the internet, we'd all still be racist, sexist, motherfucks.

Get your parents addicted to something (like on that mafia show where the Italian guy kidnapped his competitor and got him addicted to crack, fyi only an example) then take that away, that way you can make a switch!

I would go with what Elite-Tek said. Say that internet is needed for school. I mean honestly would your parents deny it because of that?

Just go up and say "I'm a gamer, this is what interest me. I don't play sports or anything simply because I don't find them interesting, sorry if I'm not the perfect idle son, but who is?"

I know a friend that did that and well it took em awhile to accept, but they went a long with it. My parents love that I do this with games and computers... They like using me as a nerd to help solve their problems... and have no problem with agreeing with me on certain things (like jack thompson) But just sit them down and explain it's what you do and if they don't like it tough luck. You are what you want to be, not what your parents want you to be.

You could black mail them... hire a P.I. to follow them around and find out if they are cheating, then ~voila~ you will have total power.

Or, just accept that it is their decision until you move out on your own, appreciate everything they actually do for you (like feed and clothe you), and just leave it at that... with the occasional begging session.

I actually did what E-tek suggested when I desired to upgrade to cable. The thing is is that it is extremely difficult for me to keep doing all of the chores that I were performing now that I have the internet.
Would you like to look at some of my wares?
