Christopher Hitchens is the perfect example. Because he was pro water boarding before hand, and it took him all of three seconds to become an ardent detractor of it.

As someone who recently emigrated from Australia to the Netherlands, your tomatoes are a thousand times better. You adopted the dark. I was born in it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man.

Like the other commenter said, are there any non-competetive games he plays? I'm in my late 20s and have played video games all my life. And competitive online games can be some of the most rage-inducing toxic environments. I would be worried if I had a kid exposed to that. A little bit of anger is nice and motivational, but as a kid I didn't have the skills to know when it was too much or affecting my mental health.

On top of what others have said, I'd also recommend steering him away from multiplayer games. For his next birthday, buy him the latest single player game, the assassin's creed or the spider man etc.

I have vivid memories of living in France as a child and enjoying biting into a fresh tomato because they tasted that good. I haven't done that in 25 years living in Australia. It's just a watery pulp.

But Dutch tomatoes remind me of those childhood memories. You know how they say taste/smell is intensely linked to memory? It's that business right there. I won't let anyone diss the Dutch time machine tomato.
