In case anyone forgets the sheer hypocrisy of the boomers:
Every generation has had their stupid "challenges". I remember the "choking game", for one, people have been jumping off bridges for dares forever, and then there were teens with cars in the '50s and '60s playing deadly games of chicken.
Honestly? Its fucking great to be off the hook. Xers were treated as shithole useless slackers that would never amount to anything in the 90s. Now they leave us alone. I love it.
It's because they haven't but like to pretend they have and steal glory from the generation before them that actually made the world a better place unlike these selfish bums.
If you take Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes, The Far Side, and maybe a dozen others out of the equation, would newspaper comics have any validity as an art medium?
I suspect you don't know very much about newspaper comics.
That marriage one turned out to be real though, except with Sonic the Hedgehog and DS anime dating sims.Some vintage boomer-complaining about videogames from the early 1980s, around the Pac-Man craze:
This is back when parents were super scared about the evil Pac-Man machines that were turning their daughters into degenerates that hung out at arcades with shady boys.
I see those far too often. It drives me crazy each time
I don't think any of the boomer veterans I worked with ever saw combat. At least the couple that actually talk about being veterans. One joined the national gaurd during Vietnam, and another was only there prior to war breaking out. They both have some great stories, but they're all about funny ways they goofed off.
Doonesbury, Krazy Kat, Flash Gordon, The Boondocks, Pogo, Dick Tracy, Bloom County, Thimble Theater/Popeye, Foxtrot, Little Nemo, Lio, Pearls Before Swine, The Spirit, For Better or For Worse, Little Orphan Annie, and those are just the ones I've heard of and/or read.
Even though the comic itself is shit, the message is absolutely true. These things have been designed to keep you addicted and dependent on them. That's why the execs of these big tech companies don't allow their kids to use it until they are much older and many times are stringent about limiting their own use, as well.
If we go by the "90% of all stuff is crap"rule, this line of thinking would invalidate any other "art medium" as well if you took out all the good bits and left in the fluff.
Right? And who do they think ended the draft?
Yes, because they were the most prosperous middle class in history which gave them the economic ability to sustain that now distinct phase between "childhood" and "adulthood".
I thought so, just wanted to make sure I had a solid grasp on their completely lack of self-awareness.
That's a bit much, don't you think?Even though the comic itself is shit, the message is absolutely true. These things have been designed to keep you addicted and dependent on them.
