Yah. I don’t give a rats ass what any lazy ass entitled millennial says or thinks. When most of them talk to me and try to give me their advice, I’m lookin get them thinking “shut your fucking pie hole”
Where do you get the idea that millenials are lazy? We've been born into a world of economic rationalism and, at least here in Australia, been significantly locked out of markets such as real estate because resources are disporportionately held by boomers. We have to work hard for everything we have, men and women, because prices are high due to artificial scarcity, and wage growth has not followed productivity growth. Millenial men and women, because gone are the days when one parent can afford to stay at home and manage the household.

Yeah, nah. You do.

I hate having two not-so-small, flat boards in my pockets, so I wear a hip pouch that carries both.

That's the way I roll.

Completely agree with Toby.

Every previous generation left the world a better place for their children. Instead the Boomers are leaving a far more fucked up planet and economy and and then like to pretend Millennials are just whiners if they point this out.

I saw a house auction a few weeks ago in my street. So many bidders were cashed up Boomers looking at yet another property for their portfolio. Meanwhile property prices have escalated out of the reach of young families. It's tragic that most Millennials will never share in the dream of house ownership that those Boomers assume is a god-given right.
Meritocracy: the privilege, wealth and advancement of those who chose their parents wisely.

Nationalism: a profound longing to go back to a past that never existed.

Sure you do. But that's ok.

Some challenges adjusting to the realisation that you're getting old, that you're no longer the man you once were, that you're past your prime (if you will) are inevitable. It wouldn't be easy coming to the realisation that, as you grey, go bald, get out of shape, the women to whom you're attracted no longer view you as a figure of any masculinty or strength, but rather some kind of old, asexual creature. To be looked after, respected perhaps, but also mollified, patronised. And never desired. It wouldn't be easy to know that the only way you'll be with a physically attractive woman is via exchange of that flaunted yet tightly held wealth, either by hooking up with a poorer woman, possibly from a third-world country, or possibly by more direct and shorter-term exchange of money for flesh. Now, and forever more.

But there's hope. Resentment towards the younger, fitter, smarter generation isn't inevitable. You don't have to be the bitter, greedy, unpleasant ogre, attended to only by those seeking something in exchange. Allow yourself to be the feeble yet kindly old git, loved and cherished by all. You'll be happier. And, you know what? You'll be cooler.

Interestingly, as one grows older, the more women look attractive.

Regarding third world nations broads--I had a couple of Russian women in my store today. The mother, about forty years old, was well past the use-by-date. She might as well have been wearing a babushka, using a pitchfork to stack wheat for Stalin's newest Five Year Plan. I would have rather stuck my dick into a tree-chipper than that shit. But her daughter. As the guineas say, Ma-roone! We're talking the best tits west of the Mississippi. I was walking around with a bigger boner than one of Lincoln's hanged assassins over here.

The greatness of these things is, if you're a boomer, and have some dosh, you know when to kick her to the curb. One day, the girl's a notorious sex kitten; then, some vague time in the future, she turns into a gnarled harridan. It takes experience to realize when this horrific experience begins--because, when it starts, it's fucking downhill all the way.

So,

A) you make plenty of money

B) you pick up a Ukranian or Russian sex kitten

C) you act like Hugh Hefner eating a Viagra the size of a urinal cake

D) hire a really, really good attorney

Then, when the sex kitten get's skreetcy,

E) kick her ass to the curb like trash

And:

Repeat.

You can thank me later.

Yup - remember, the more you complain, the more cigars with light with our hunnits :mrgreen:. Seriously, identity politics just ends up in a pitched battle, especially if it's insults dressed up as "advice".

Even more seriously, baby-boomers are now dying or retiring and are no longer in charge of things Gen X is now setting policy and they're taxing 'em pretty hard around the world. And again, when boomers die, the taxed estate passes to children - since most of 'em had children - and they sure aren't boomers. So at what point will people stop whining about a generation that's died off, and because it's dead, has passed on all its wealth to the younger generation?

Did it? The generation before the Silents fucked the world pretty hard in the ass, leading to a world war, global depression, fear of nuclear annihilation and god knows what else, that the Silents lived through. And the one before them didn't do too well either, having nurtured strident nationalism, bilateralism and all other manner of political engineering which led to, amongst other things, the Great War. Things that are all worse than we have today. So let's not pretend everyone who lived up until that point was a candidate for sainthood.

It seems like this generational comparison, bordering on competition, has become overly complicated.

Can we just agree that boomers are resentful that they are no longer sexual, and that resultant feeling of disgrace has influenced their behaviour lo these past 20 years?

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA......................... laughing out loud knowing Toby will be in the same ^ position say forty years from now.






On a different note, anyone looking to buy a house?
I'll probably be getting rid of another one shortly which will leave me with only two, one US & one abroad.

Have any of you actually worked alongside millennials? I have...

Not all, but many really are self entitled, wanting YOU to give them the answers to problems, not wanting to make their own decisions or accepting the consequences if they shit the bed. They seem to be very unwilling to do the actual hard work needed to succeed.
I see a lot of this in the most recent generation too, right behind the millennials.

Again.....fuck 'em!

No.

I've had more fun *since* I was 60 than i did before. Including some great sex.

It was my 70th birthday yesterday, and I'm as happy and content with my life as I've ever been.

(I work daily with people with great challenges, and many of them are seniors, as in *very* senior, so I'm not naive about how the last times can be, so as things decline I might regret what I can no longer do--but I'll still grin wide at what I *did* do, and I'll know that lots of folks older and younger than me haven't seen all sorts of the things I've seen--and maybe never will. I'm perfectly happy with my blessings.)
