And this is precisely why we shouldn't teach our children that the Internet is about as essential as breathable air.

Over the Christmas holiday, the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live networks suffered outages due to DDoS attacks. Currently, the FBI is investigating hacker group Lizard Squad.

Gamers were none too happy but it's unlikely that any would deem the situation an "emergency." One kid did, though: According to a WPTV report , a teenager in Palm Beach County called 911 about the incident and asked, "I was wondering, do you guys know anything about that?"

The dispatcher told the caller to check with Sony and Microsoft and authorities simply replied:

"Last time I checked, that wasn't an emergency. Try going outside or read a book."

Two things kids don't really do anymore, and two of the biggest reasons why we're going down the tubes.

this ranks up there with the person who called 911 from the drive thru of McDonald's because they were out of like Chicken Nuggets or something.

I'm glad my daughter doesn't care for playing online. She's not an idiot and would never make such a call, but she could be exposed to these people who have a warped sense of thinking.

He didn't call Sony/Microsoft or the internet connection provider but 911?

I don't even know what to say.

You're an idiot. I know you think I'm trying to be mean. I'm doing you a favour. If you don't know you're an idiot, I hope you realize soon.

There's almost definitely more going on here than a cranky teenager.

I would not be even a little bit surprised if it turned out that youth had FAS. And I'm not making a joke. It honestly sounds exactly like someone with FAS might actually do.

How is no one else's reaction to assume cognitive or mental health disability?

Adventures in bad parenting, most likely.
