    "The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room. They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannize their teachers.

    I don't subscribe to that definition. As far as I'm concerned, kids from 1996 onwards are VERY different from those born in 1980-1995.

    You'd think philosophy professors would be the least likely to be shocked out of all professors in a college.

    Oh well.

    It refers to "that bubbly, shallow cinematic creature that exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures." A pretty, outgoing, whacky romantic lead whose sole purpose is to help broody male characters lighten up and enjoy their lives.

    iirc it's 2000 and onwards that's generation z, might be why? idk i'm 1994 so right on the cusp but i dont mind being called a millennial (and have a hard time relating to anything pre-1990 anyway)

    ((generation z kind of scares me a little bit))

    (((but thats just cuz they are children and children terrify me)))

    Uh...I don't notice much of a difference. I know people on both sides of your random 1996 cutoff point.

    The thing is that someone born in 97 will be rather different from someone born in 80, but very similar to someone born in 94. Placing specific dates as specific generations is a bit silly imo. Things blur too much to make explicit dates. I don't have a problem with labels like generation Y or whatever, but they shouldn't be defined that way.

    Haha former memory of what I tell my roommates have fun no matter how fun the activity is.
    Then they tell me to have fun even though what I am doing is technically not fun and I hear that person gossip says he hates it when I say that.
    But honestly I wouldn't be telling anyone have fun if it irked me to no end lolol.

    Oh and I accidentally flipped someone off today meant to be for someone else. hopefully they forget or didn't notice.

    I'm speaking from a stance that the 1995 kids and before are facing adulthood and would most likely relate to adult problems (paying bills, rent, budgeting) even though they go through it in differing degrees.
