Baby boomers are destroying the country. It will get even worse when they start to retire and hit social security.
 
2002-06-16 12:55:55 AM
Whoa! Check out what comes first in a google image search of "boomeritis"

Ouroborus: There is only one solution. They must be destroyed. Except I'm Generation-X and we're apathetic and lazy, so we won't be doing it.

What Cappy said. Our death certificates will read 'Cause of death: boredom and disgust'.

See how they don't get it? This guy is missing both legs and one arm, and he's still trying to play football.

Doctors say adapting your activities -- even trying a new, lower-impact sport may be the best place to start.

Um, we "X"-ers need to just shoot them off into outer space. Anyone born before, say, 1960. Now. It benefits everyone. No "gravity problems" for the ladies, no gravity causing men injuries because they're overstressing themselves with a larger body than they're used to. And the best part is that we won't be paying half our money financing their retirement through taxes, oops, "social programs".

I love beer. It gives me great ideas. Everyone should drink beer. They'd become smarter then and have good ideas too.

Boomers have now become the most whiney group of people in American history.
 
2002-06-16 02:08:45 AM
Wouldn't 'boomeritis' technically be 'inflammation of the boomer'?
 
2002-06-16 02:28:18 AM
footballitis...

9/10, There's nothing more pathetic than an ageing hipster...
 
2002-06-16 02:39:54 AM
He's hip, he's cool, he's 45!
 
2002-06-16 02:48:10 AM
Yes, it would, Suraimu. Whomever coined the term 'boomeritis' most likely has 'cerebritis'.

Baby-Boomers: The curse of society. Just one phase of the never-ending quest to turn us all into a bunch of pussies.

"Orthopedic surgeons say they are repairing more ACL tears than ever before.

After months of rehab on his left knee, Chip Davenport knows he's got a long way to go before he's back doing what he loves.

He literally shattered his left knee this past winter skiing up in the UP."

Skiing up in the up? It sounds to me like that generation is FUBAR.
 
2002-06-16 03:24:31 AM
Haha, nice headline.
 
2002-06-16 03:52:21 AM
Nothing new or surprising about this article. Athletes of all ages injure themselves. Fat ass tech/gamer geeks do not.
 
2002-06-16 05:08:20 AM
I freaking hate boomers. Most self-indulgent, hypocritical generation ever. Totally unwilling to ever take any sort of responsibility- they just blame whatever is convenient for their faults. The kids they raised turning out all violent and screwed up? It's the evil media and video games! Nevermind it was the boomer parents who parked their kids in front of the T.V. and video games to begin with.
The echo-boomers are totally screwed and it's mostly the boomer's fault, because they just suck as parents.

(and yes, my parents are boomers, although technically I'm a gen-xer, I'm actually in this weird inbetween generation. Too young to have seen Star Wars in the theater, too old to be able to stand anything in current Top 40 rotation...)

UP = Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

The ACL is a ligament in the knee. Athletes injure it all the time.

Did nobody edit this article? It's full of errors. Like where it says "(pictured)" after the doctor's name, but there's no picture.

Baby boomers are the moronic product of the "golden age of America". Personally, I'd like to go back in time and simply erase that whole 15 years. And the commies. Commies are responsible for all this. No, wait, the terrorists are.

THE TERRORISTS HAVE ALEADY WON.
 
2002-06-16 04:16:19 PM
9/10 In an earlier post you wrote "Boomers have now become the most whiney group of people in American history."

Then Yakkette comes along and proves you wrong and you bestow a Hero tag for it?????????
 
2002-06-16 04:56:27 PM
Aztex999: Do you read? I simply expounded upon 9/10's statement. All those extra question marks must have confused you!
