Since I’m long past my high school days, those of you out there who are more familiar with what it’s like to attend high school in the year 2010 will have to let me know whether this is normal teenage behavior or simply a group of kids who watched Teen Wolf and Twilight one too many times.
Twilight, Taylor Lautner
well i personally think that its actually no big deal, whats do all parents want 4 there kids. well one is to find a group of friends that they fit in with and as long as those friens are good influences then theres nothing to worry about, these teens are good students, they dont cause trouble, and they might just grow out of the pack, but there just being them selves,
LOL!!!!! Kids do a heckuva lot to garner attention and set themselves apart from everyone else..even it means being like everyone else. I can't wait until they are like 50 and look back with quiet embarassment at their teenage antics.
I think these kids are awesome for doing what they're doing. Sure it's a little strange and unusual... But they're fitting in and feeling included. I admire them for being different, and being brave enough to show that they're different. Especially if what they're doing isn't leading to violent acts or bullying, I don't see anything wrong with it other than they're doing something society calls different. And did you listen to the news man? This fascination with wolves might not just be from Twilight.. There is other werewolf media out there than that one series, humans have been fascinated with werewolves and other fantasy creatures for a long time.
sounds a little d&d
Well, come on IanGut3.. don't you think these kids could find something much more constructive and beneficial to society to do? If I have to spell this out to you.. I'm probably wasting both mine and your time. Think about it, I'm sure that you're a smart guy! :-)
i just can't see where they are doing anything that isn't good for them, other that an obsession which is normal for teenagers. They are making friends, staying out of trouble and bonding in a way that is like family, in fact it is very beneficial to themselves and possibly to others.
Really? I am a die hard Twilight fan and I find this ridiculous. I mean seriously people? You're actually wearing tails, contacts, and fangs?Call yourselves a pack or whatever but it gets taken too far when you start wearing a wolf tail around everywhere.
I graduated in 2009 and know that the "wolfpacks" formed in our class was because of The Hangover, not Twilight.
I really hope some revolutionary war movie is the next click
bring back the redcoats!
These kids are just stupid Twi-hards that think it's cool to string a fake tail in their pants and pretend they're wolves. Ridiculous, seriously. All it is is a new version of the "Anime Junkies," who called each other Japanese sounding names like Kemitsu, even though they were CLEARLY American.
I'm way "old school" , but I have seen this type of behavior before.. ex: the hippie movement. Kids love to "fit in" with something. To bad they can't identify with something honest, decent and respectable. What has happened to our families that has caused kids to have this yearning to be a part of a group? Sad!! Very sad! I know there have been groups called Jesus freaks. I didn't much like that group either. When something is taken to an extreme.. it creeps me out.
What is dishonest, indecent or disrespectful about these kids?
Well, first of all.. they are not "real" wolves.. right? I think if I have to spell this out for you.. then I'm really kinda wasting my time. Think about it!! I'm sure you're a smart guy!
Well, I am a very intelligent person as well, and I am not following you on why this is dishonest, indecent or disrespectful. I believe maybe it's just that you don't know what you're talking about and are not familiar with these films. It may seem strange to you, as it does to me, but as the article states, at least they aren't into drugs or violence and are there to support one another.
It's called being a teenager! They are discovering who they are and bonding with people who like the same things. Who cares if they dress differently, as long as they are comfortable with who they are. You don't have to like it because as you say you are "old school" and (hopefully) don't hang around the teenage crowd anymore. Who are you to judge what is decent, honest, and respectable? Go back to your rocking chair grandma.
Ever hear of Comic Con? It brings thousands of dollars to my city every year. And it is these "Twi-hards" and "Anime Junkies", among others, who spend the big bucks.
I teach students who are younger than high school, but have read the Twilight series cover to cover repeatedly. There is an obsession factor that seems to take hold, and I expect that for some of these kids, it will carry over into high school. Kids are looking for something beyond what they have, something magical. Look at the popularity of Harry Potter.
HAHAH!!! ok i graduated two years ago, and still have friends in highschool. IF they or anyone they knew in high school were apart of a "pack" .... we'd laugh, honestly, call it cruelty or bullying, but we probably would, given that this is the first ive hear do of this. But say i was still in highschool, and there were guys in such a thing called a "pack" people would be asking if they were "gay". bc they took an idea from a movie series that, lets be honest, 98% of girls are into. and guys who DO like it, arent necissarily proud of it either lol. bc they know their friends will give em a hard time. But hey, they could like the idea of a pack, and i guess thats cool, but name it after a chickflick... come on
Wow this is going a little to far. I am a high school senior, just about to graduate, and I am a huge fan but this is bad. And i guess it could be good too, since they are not being violent. So yeah I don't know of anyone doing that around here, but if they are thats cool/wierd lol
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
