Hilarious and true! Especially #7 when I was a mainframe programmer "back in the day" and you didn't use debugging software! However, I wouldn't change a thing.

17-year-old Ashley Duncan committed suicide after leaving posts on Twitter. Although her friends saw the posts, they thought she was joking. One of Ashley’s friends stated, “A lot of times, people do have that one final outburst of a call for help.” “In the olden days, you had to talk face to face. Now we have this wall of protection called the Internet and I think it’s easier for people to release their feelings.” Read the story and tips to keep teens safe online.
