8 Remodeled Passengers | Part 6

Re: 8 Remodeled Passengers | Part 6

Postby Tiger27 » Thu Oct 19, 2017 4:29 am

Just an interesting tidbit of information from a nurse who recently learned about this in a peds class...

The BRAT diet is actually not recommended for kiddos anymore..it doesn't provide enough nutrients to aide in proper healing, can lead to more dehydration, and there's not much evidence backing up it's effectiveness at accomplishing much of anything. Of course it might be "easier" on the tummy initially but a lot of parents were actually making kids sicker or take longer to heal with this restrictive diet. The diet is often carried out for way too long and/or kids weren't getting enough essential nutrients or were being dehydrated more. It's now recommended to let kids get back to a normal (but healthy/balanced) diet as soon as possible...of course that doesn't mean common sense should be lost. Foods that can upset your stomach even when you aren't sick should still be avoided (see: giant milkshake). I highly doubt Ruby keeps up on the latest recommendations for pediatric health though and am pretty sure she's just feeding them her typical junk diet for the heck of it.

Here's some articles/evidence on it that explains it way better than me in case anyone cares lol.

Mormons (or LDS) are not polygamists. You're thinking of those religions that branched off from the LDS church. According to the article, his dad had six children with his first wife, then remarried after a divorce and had Kevin with his second wife.

You’re right that Kevin’s dad is obviously not a polygamist. But polygamy was a part of LDS and directly espoused by Josheph Smith. They fought hard against the US government to keep practicing and eventually had to give it up in the 1890s. Those who practice polygamy today are not recognized by the LDS church but the concept didn’t come from some small group who broke away- it was at the core of the LDS church since it’s inception.


I didn't say members of the LDS church didn't practice polygamy historically. You suggested that "since Kevin's family is Mormon" his half siblings might be the result of his dad having multiple wives. Not sure why you'd suggest that, unless maybe Kevin's dad was around before 1890, when the LDS church stopped practicing polygamy. It's pretty ignorant to admit that you know the LDS church no longer practices polygamy, yet make comments to the contrary.

I did not suggest that- maybe before being condescending and calling others ignorant look who you’re interacting with. Your answer was misleading and historically incorrect (“those other religions that branched off” are literally the people who stuck to the principles of the religion-if anything it is Modern LDS who branched off, just like Protestants branched off from Catholicism. They are not a separate religion, they are just no longer recognized by mainstream LDS. The person who made the comment about polygamy was either joking or uninformed/confused about Mormons- that is why I provided a more accurate representation of what the deal with Mormonism and polygamy is.

I’m gonna go out on a big fat limb here and say ruby regrets buying that obnoxious van. They hardly ever seem to use it and I’m not convinced she sold her other van like she said she did. I say she comes up with a bs excuse on why they have to get rid of it and downsized again here quickly. What a stupid purchase

she didn't want to buy the van in the first place so I'm honestly not surprised she doesn't like it

Ruby has 11 nieces and nephews and at least two of her siblings (Beau and Ellie) will probably try for more kids in the future

I'm convinced she does it on purpose. How hard is it to tell your kids to stay near you. She probably went to put Eve's shoes on or grab the vlog camera and he ran off, but instead of stopping him she just let him go for her precious "good footage". It won't be so funny when one of then really gets lost or taken.

Yes, I definitely think it's set up. Actually I'm beginning to think that a lot of the crap on her videos is set up-- which certainly doesn't make it any better!

Sorry, double post. I just want to give credit where I think it's due. I was really impressed with Ruby's idea of letting the kids manage the Halloween party. The budget seemed reasonable and it teaches them some good skills.

I don’t know why... but I find it really repulsive that he has that many members in his family.

30 (and maybe more) nieces and nephews on his side alone?!

Maybe this reaction says more about me than them lol

I'm kind of late on this, but I wonder how Shari feels about the fact that her mom posted footage of her crying about her grades... If I was in her shoes, I would be pissed...lol. I wonder how much she's gotten teased in school about it? Probably not anything malicious, but I'm willing to bet she's gotten several, "Did you really cry over an A-?" type of comments.

Hey Ruby, maybe you don't care about how cringey all that silly dancing you do is, but I do. Please knock it off, it makes me most of us feel uncomfortable and sorry for your kids. You look totally ridiculous!

Why do they have a massive 8 Passengers sticker on the back of their obnoxious van? Do they want people to stop them/follow them?

I saw that and I wonder if they are doing it so they can write off the van as an income tax deduction for business purposes.

Ugh. How obnoxious that they’re camping in the van and playing xbox. They are going to ruin the evening for everyone by showing that they are too “cool” for scary stories by the fire and roughing it out in a tent for a night. That kind of shitty attitude is contagious amongst kids and is going to spread to the kids who were genuinely excited to camp out. The whole point of camping with kids is to unplug, remove yourself from your usual environment and connect with eachother in nature. If I were one of the other parents I’d be pissed.

Yeah I was surprised that Kevin let the boys bring the Xbox. They can’t go 1 night without it? Him and Ruby were the ones harping about the kids being attached to electronic, and when he’s given an opportunity to show his kids they don’t need technology at every given moment, they take it camping..

Not trying to defend them by any means, because I could be wrong, but I got the feeling the Xbox was for the drive? I thought Chad was just joking about actually using it while they're there.

Also, I thought it was reaaalllyyyy annoying how Ruby was literally trying to pry Chad's mouth open with the camera shoved in his face. Once again, no boundaries/awareness. Chad was clearly uncomfortable..... Ruby's just determined to do anything for views, even if that means making her kids uncomfortable.
