More Chaos


I know nothing about kids or what kids like. But even a guy like me keeps hearing about "Hannah Montana", and I also hear she is coming to Fort Worth. I looked at Stubhub to see the price of tickets on the scalper marker. (Random screenshot above.) Oh, my.

Highway robbery using kids for bait.

Not nice.

11:28, "highway robbery" is meant to describe a circumstance in which a person has no practical options but to pay a jacked up price. Being stranded on a highway needing a tow, for example. Or the high price of gas. Nobody has to buy these tickets. And if there is a parent that feels like they do, then these ticket prices are the least of their troubles.

It's so sad when people take advantage of children. Although, some paretns will pay the price. My daughter is very disappointed that she can't go to the concert, but the prices are crazy.

Hannah Montana fans do NOT have that kind of money but their CRAZY parents MUST and be willing to spend it on tickets.

All PARENTS need to do to bring down the price of a ticket is to REFUSE to pay an INSANE price for a ticket.

I agree, mzchief. Don't buy the tickets. Then, maybe they will think about lowering the prices. Those prices are crazy.

I'm wondering. Did they even factor in the cost of living for this area? These prices seem to reflect California pricing instead of the DFW area.

8:54, if you go that that meeting, ask the Devon rep how close to homes Devon's policy allows them to drill gas wells. If he tells you it's farther than 50-75 yards he's full of shit.

200 feet, 11:23. Which is crazy. I always thought it was 700 feet.

Hey 8:54 AM - I have an iron pyrite specimen I found at you know where. It's about the size of a golf ball, totally round like a golf ball, with numerous almost 1/2" inch crystals poking out. Would y'all like to see it sometime? I don't think I can make the next meeting, but maybe the one after that.

Yeah, because these teen idols turn out to be such good role models for our little girls. Spend away, you idiots.

Disney knows what they are doing! That's what makes them Disney. I took my eight year old last October to see Hannah Montana and the Cheetah Girls in Grand Prairie. Granted, Hannah was not as big as she is now. I purchased our tix for 54.00 each and they were in the front 20 rows. When we were diving into the parking lot I had dads,not moms, offering to buy my tix anywhere from 150.00 to 200.00 a piece. Eventhough Disney is taking everyone for their money, Hannah is a very wholesome youg enterainer that I have no problem with my daughter looking up to. Which you don't see much anymore.

house of r & r, we had 2 of Devon's gas wells drilled last summer directly behind our house...I've never measured the distance but they sure seem closer than 200 feet.

I thought "Hannah Montana" worked at T&A cabaret?

My wife stood in line two weeks ago to buy tickets and we got 4 of them for less than $40 each. My daughter is very excited. I looked it up and the tickets are now worth $700 each! WOW... we could turn a pretty decent profit if we were the type to just suck up the tickets so others can't get them and turn around and sell them at 1000 % profit. It's sad that so many do this and so many kids can't go because of it. I agree with you.. Hannah Montanna is a good, decent show for kids.
