jayhawk88: 1. We Like WorkThat's kind of funny, because at the time it was all "These damn kids think they can make ends meat just playing in their garage band for a few hours a day and hanging out on the couch watching Beavis and Butthead!" But yeah, it turns out the majority of us were showing up to work every day, getting our college degrees to end up with some kind of functional career, and just generally growing up and turning into semi-responsible adults.I wonder if that's how it will turn out with the "Millennials", despite the popular perception that all they care about is posting pictures of themselves on Facebook or blogging for some pageviews? .....Nah, seriously, they're the worst.

UberDave: Surprisingly good article. I was expecting a bunch of "here's how shiat was when I was young" but there's actually little of that.
TwistedFark: Also, anyone else think that their parents are kind of stupid? I don't mean in the "low IQ" sort of way, but if you look at the things they obsess about and how they've let it totally dominate their lives, you just shake your head and go, "What da fuq?"
ImmaHoopyFrood: SheltemDragon: I'd high five you, but I'm still locked locked in my house after school and not allowed to have friends over.Are you serious about this (at least a little)? Because I've thought the generations after mine were the first ones to be truly monitored and shackled. Like the parents never wanted the kids to fly off with middle finger extended and raise some hell while they can get away with it. When I was a teen the policy was "don't get caught and try not to be an ass". We waited a little bit to have kids but I have two that are about ready to leave the house and I'm known as the "dangerous dad". Don't let your kids play with his kids. They might end up bicycling to a river and swim in water that isn't chlorinated. Plus they would be unsupervised and a 17 year old needs constant surveillance apparantly.
jpo2269: The Millennials are not going to take this one well. Much butthurt will be shared on this thread I do predict...
UberDave: Surprisingly good article.
jpo2269: a flock of birdsSelf reliant is not the same as "self absorbed,' it's just "different."
slayer199: What is going on lately with these Gen X vs. Millenials articles. It started a few weeks ago with the one article stating that Millenials weren't special snowflakes and escalated from there.This one makes some good points in terms of our perspective on things and WHY we have those perspectives.
