Get a load of these guys. As if "struggling" should be applauded and praised.

Yeah. A lot of the time I don't even care to understand the answer because it's incidental to the underlying problem I'm trying to solve. If I'm trying to build a frobnicator and I'm getting hung up on some trivial little linker error, I could spend hours digging into the problem until I truly understand it, or I could check Stack Overflow and be on my way in 5 minutes.

if you're so stupid as to leave anything remotely dangerous where a 2 year old can get to it (especially if it's in the back seat of a car with the child in the back), you should lose right to be a parent

OK cool. Now what happens when you irresponsibly leave your handgun lying around, your toddler gets it, and accidentally shoots someone else's kid? Now your stupidity has denied someone else the right to be a parent.
