    Exactly, so ask them what will happen if you fail because of that?
    and if you go to a private school, that means more wasted money for your parents

    Just prove you're responsible and trustworthy enough top have a Lap top/PC in your room.

    That's what I did, and my parents even bought me my own router and Modem so I can have a semi strong signal for all my Internet using devices
    No rooms in the upstairs of my house have internet. The wifi is blocked by cinder blocks in our basement.

Also is the bank account your college fund account?
    It is my college fund but I don't plan on using the money in there for anything BUT college. I just need the info so I can link my paypal to it for depositing money I make and to get a paypal debt card.

    Why would I fail? I plan on studying either way.

    That means they want you to focus on education, so they're trying to limit as many distractions as possible.

    and 10PM is a pretty good sleep time, So to avoid you being up all night using your laptop, they took away that luxury.

    So just chill, finish college, then when you're working you can use a laptop or PC all you want. Jeez.

    LOLOL debt card, i'm gonna use that kk?kk, also i wouldn't use the money in that fund to buy a Xoom, i would make my own money and just buy a wifi one and a router.. I'm gonna buy a computer build with the money my parents are giving me for college, because it's useful for my career, a xoom isn't gonna be useful for your career. So make some money mowing lawns or something, if you live in NY where theres no such thing as grass, clean peoples houses, like offer to clean kid's bedrooms for pay.

    Oh yeah, I don't see why you have a problem going to sleep at 10 PM, at 10 PM i'm exhausted... I want nothign but sleep at 10 PM infact, it's 10 PM i'm gonna go take a shower and go to bed.

    Computers are my biggest hobby. I love working with them, whether it be gaming, coding, or troubleshooting. I'm also a night owl, I stay up till around 1-2am anyway despite whether I'm on a computer or not.

    Staying up ain't healthy. I always have a damn huge headache in 1st block, and because of that migraine, I can't focus in class.

    Stay where you are, and don't become a dumb fuck like the rest of us.

    youre 16 and you have these rules?
    well one its weird you dont have wifi in your room, and not bringing it into your room is retarded. thats the point of having a laptop vs a desktop, mobility
    secondly, i say to obey that rule on weekdays and slowly try to persuade them to let you stay up later on weekends

    Oh, and summers almost here, so I'm pretty sure they'll loosen up then.

    They for sure don't want you to fuck up final exams.

    They are thinking about getting rid of our internet over the summer to make us get outside more. And they keep the same shit over the summer too

    I have asian parents, and they aren't even that strict, go outside, bike to a friends house, bring a USB full of your shiz, and use his/her lappy

    That's what I'd do in your predicament

    My idea for the hour limit... Keep a few "fake" assignments open in the background.
    Just C+P some shit from wikipedia about something in your class and put it in Word.
    If you hear them coming in just go into word and start typing random shit.

    Works with my parents

    Not an argument but it might work later

    P.S. Tell them they must get rid of the rules or MPGH will kick their ass
    Gang Bang



    I do the iPod thing.



    I say that to my parents.
    I'm still only allowed on the computer once a week.
    But I don't have time.
    iPod FTW
    thats hilarious, because thats what i actually do!

    OT: if you are almost 17 as i, then just tell them you are semi-adult and ask them to cut some slack on you. dont try taking over the situation yourself but begin by trying to reason them in a respectful way. if my parents see that im being disrespectful to them, i get nothing for atleast couple of weeks.
    I don't say much, but THANK ME if I helped
