    Well I guess we will see. So far "An Inconvenient Truth" has failed to prove true. I get a chuckle every time there's some extreme weather and the comparison is within the last century since "the last time something like this happened", even more so when it's within the last 2-3 decades. People look at the destruction totals and forget we have been building up in very vulnerable areas during that entire time.

    I do think there needs to be monitoring of environmental pollutants. Guess we take the good with the bad.

    Anywho, what about all the media doing all but calling Kanye a House Buddypal?

    Wouldn't have made sense since I'm not a boomer nor is the person who made the meme. Also fuck boomers, boomers are the retards who whitewashed communist history to such a degree that millennials now felate dictators and mass murderers.

    :err: Why does your not being a baby boomer disqualify its meaning? That makes no sense. You posted a meme making fun of millennials. I offered a meme making fun of baby boomers. Where's the problem?

    You said you were going to post it in response, kinda changes the context no? Make fun of boomers all you like pal, but doing it in response to me or a meme implies I'm a boomer or the person who made the meme is a boomer.

    I don't think so--it's merely a rejoinder to a jab at millennials. I didn't assume anything about you, I was just reacting to the meme. The point would have been that for all the shit people drop on millennials, baby boomers are just as shitty.

    If not worse, honestly--since most millennials don't actually want free shit; they're just annoyed at having to answer to baby-boomer expectations, e.g. "When I was twenty-five, I owned a house!" Good for you, jackass.

    Boomers are worse than millennials I agree, especially if you consider that a lot of the negative aspects of whatever could be defined as a millennial caricature comes directly from boomers.

    My dad told me a story about buying his first house, apparently he just lied to the bank about how much he had in his savings. Imagine trying to do that now? Of course these are the same people shitting on younger generations for not owning homes.

    But if you wouldn't have intended the meme in that way that's fair enough, I certainly would have taken it as if I'm (or the person who made the meme) is the boomer shooting the country and blaming the millennials in your meme, since it's a response to an anti-millennials meme.

    Whtvs.

    Well, millenials are pretty shitty. This coming from a guy who has to interview them for jobs on the regular. "You mean I have to do physical labor?" "How many breaks do I get?" "How long is lunch?" Yes, those are actual questions I've received from these retards.

    And when some of them do get the job, it's an act of god to separate them from their phone. Cliched millenials jabs, I know, but very accurate. I truly hope the laziness of millenials translates into active and positive participation in society for the next generation.

    What will millenials tell their kids? "When I was 25, I had the Samsung 8, and I had to type on it!"

    Agree about Boomers though. My dad is one. And yes, they definitely look down on non whites.

    Millennials are just younger Boomers. Change my mind.
