I'm in my late 50s and I do think we left some stuff behind that made it harder for the younger generation. Then people tear down the younger generations like they were shiftless lazy people. I never did drugs and alcohol in high school or college but a lot of people my age did so I feel like a whole lot of people my age are snowing the younger generation with the stories like I walked 10 miles in the snow to school. Well I did wait down the road in the freezing cold snow storms for the bus but I digress.
We had it way easier than young adults today on so many levels unless someone was unlucky enough to have to go to the Vietnam war.
@sejla That's a good point. My older sisters are 59 and 57 this year and we often ask ourselves exactly where the Baby Boom ended and Generation X began. I am solidly in Gen X, but my older sisters have Boomerish traits, although they were clearly too young to be in the hippy dippy late 1960s and early 1970s
@Curmudgeon I believe 1964 is the end of the baby boomers. In my small town we had a lot of kids in my elementary school. The town was 13,000 but they bused kids in from the countryside outside of the town. We had 32 kids in a class and 4 classrooms each year. When people complain that 25 kids in classroom is too many I kind of laugh. But we had 3 recesses a day so kids pretty much ran off their excess energy so the classrooms were more quiet until about 6th grade.
Wait aren't you GenZ? I thought you guys where the aware ones. Highschool still got to them after all that insane awareness because that seems unlikely. They may just be to scared to speak.
We were supposed to me. And no, they're not too scared to speak. I know this because they're not afraid to speak for the wrong side, they're like little zombies now. I know my generation, and I don't like them. Their eyes were closed.
Your generation used to be rebels? You're EIGHTEEN, little boy! Your generation hasn't EVER been rebels. They've just been pissy little kids who whine and complain a lot.
I didn't know I came here to be disrespected.
You came here to whine and pule, obviously--and you proved my point to be quite true. I get it, you believe you are owed unlimited "respect" for every fart that comes out of your brain. It doesn't work like that, baby boy.
Again, I didn't know I came here to be disrespected.
Welcome to the big world, here's your crying towel.
I know you're trying to get under my skin, it's not going to work.
No, I'm just trying to tell you the truth. Being the biggest whiners and entitled little turds in all of history does not make you rebels.
Still not working
@HereIbe Now, now, Herelbe, surely you remember ex-hippie "teachers" saying that about us, and trying to push their crappy agendas onto us?
@Curmudgeon, I remember one of them trying, ONCE, only once. Then I had my say. Professor never said a word about that sort of thing, again, at least not in my presence.
At least ypu have wi_fi, android phones. Ps3, ps4 etc. Back in the 90s they berly had cell phones, super nintendo, and because i was born in mexico no that it matters much but at 5 trought 9 years old i had to worked with what i had. I made cars out of rocks i was very creative i painted wheels, windows etc. And basically just play imagination games. It was pretty boring early 2000s were pretty boring in my part i was already legal in the us since 95 in 2000 computers sucked ethernet sucked it took 10 _15 minutes to load a page it was annoying. Back then you would see lots of kids playing outdoor sports no time to waste in doors. the life saver was kids wb what ever its called unless you had illegal cable you saw all the new movies coming out but technology was bad
Yes yes I feel bad for you guys but he’ll you paved the way for us
@Just_someone23 a better fit, if survival was possible! The world was pretty tough before medicine had developed sufficiently to take care of many ailments and diseases that we don't even recognize as threats anymore...
@differentpixel yeah I know all that. I grown up in the very remote areas and lived a life without modern technology. I guess you can say. I was raised almost Amish like. I really miss that that life and thinking of going back to it.
