Get off my lawn, subby.

#n+1: You make lists trying to trick others into thinking they are suffering from the same situation to reduce your feeling lame about yourself alone.
 
2013-11-25 09:11:40 PM  
You think young men wear their trousers too low.

My parents never complained about this, idiots never wore their damn pants below their ass back then, we weren't that stupid.
 
2013-11-25 09:12:30 PM  
I freely admit that I'm guilty of #1, #2, #3, #5, and #8.
 
2013-11-25 09:14:12 PM  
#4- I do moan because the [idiots on the sound board | idiot guitardist ] suck all the tone.  I don't care that it goes to 11, the answer is not always MOAR VOLUME!

/Back to practicing metal.

You work a job you hate, like making pointless Top X lists for websites.
 
2013-11-25 09:15:31 PM  
People in my generation have been saying that guys with their pants half off look like idiots since we were kids. That's not a generational thing at all.
 
2013-11-25 09:17:05 PM  
Hey I may be turning in to a grouchy old man, but sexting will always be awesome in my book :P.
 
2013-11-25 09:17:47 PM  
The headline made me think adult children moving back with mommy and daddy.

You search through Fark threads.

Many idiot hippie libs from the 60's finally learned from experience and education to become more conservative after they grew up (or they OD'd). The same will yet again happen with this generation of indignant, pretentiously self-righteous libs. And there's nothing you can do about it. The brain is designed to learn from mistakes.
 
2013-11-25 09:19:48 PM  
Yea... the pants around the thighs thing is just stupid as fark. If that makes me my parents, then so be it.
 
2013-11-25 09:21:14 PM  
#1 define popular
#2 Have always done this
#3 Never do this
#4 I guess I don't go to those bars
#5 I did it first
#6 Who?
#7 Huh? Who does this?
#8 I have both legal and illegal drawers
#9 I don't understand the fear, if they fark up, then they fark up.
#10 I am cursed with making these
#11 I wish someone would sext me.

As long as you don't have children, you will never be like your parents.
 
2013-11-25 09:24:13 PM  
Nope, my dad turned into a serious douche repugnoncon for reasons I still cannot fathom after telling me that serving in the Navy and retiring was a waste of 21 years.  He is the only male out of 5 in his family that did not serve.  My pills fit in just 2 bottles.  I don't listen to that "new band" stuff.  I'd rather drink alone.  Pretty much not at all my parents.
 
2013-11-25 09:27:30 PM  
I don't see "excessive flatulence" on that list.
 
2013-11-25 09:28:12 PM  
#6, I dunno about the adverts (who?) but I do cry when I see reality shows, so... guilty.  Seriously, WTF America, you used to be cool.  And what happened to all the cool intros to TV shows?  The A-Team, Knight Rider, Dukes of Hazzard, Airwolf... hell, even the Brady Bunch had a song with the plot premise laid out at the beginning.

Now, you get five seconds of music with credits and *bang*, right into the show... or 20 minutes of commercials!  SERIOUSLY, WTF?!?!?

\Off to the Angry-Dome again, I see.  *sigh*  So be it.
 
2013-11-25 09:35:03 PM  
Turn into my parents? Cool! Best octogenarians I know. As a bonus, I guess I've been turning into them since I was seven or eight. In all my life I've been repelled by stupid people, and that seems to be what the list centers on. I thought being repelled by stupid people was a pretty normal everyday kinda' thing.

"No woman ever caught cold because she was underdressed (and this assumes that she was hardly dressed at all)." Friedrich Nietzsche.

He was somewhat gynophobic, but he had some good points on the subject.

Extremely, extremely excessive.

2013-11-25 09:54:34 PM  
Not so far.

The only other thing I've concluded from this article is that Miley Cyrus is mentally retarded.

Ryker's Peninsula: As long as you don't have children, you will never be like your parents.


I don't have children and I still find myself channeling my mother and/or father on occassion.

It's usually disturbing but sometimes it is sort of cool.
 
2013-11-25 09:57:49 PM  
Also that list was stupid.
 
2013-11-25 10:10:20 PM  
My Dad died when he was 39...I'm almost 51, so I guess it's "later" for me...
 
2013-11-25 10:10:33 PM  
8. You have a drawer just full of pills and medicines.

Well, yes. That's called, "Daddy's downtime."
 
2013-11-25 10:15:08 PM  
No, I'm not going to turn into a useless fat drunk who drank himself into an early grave.

3. You've judged people based on what they're wearing.

Yeah, no teenager has ever done that. You need to be really old to do that.
 
2013-11-25 10:30:26 PM  
I yell at the kids to turn off lights when they leave the room. It doesn't work.
 
2013-11-25 10:31:07 PM  
One they forgot: You check the weather and actually CARE about the forecast.
 
2013-11-25 10:32:24 PM  
In my experience you either turn out exactly like your parents, or the polar opposite.

Many kind and intelligent people come from abusive ignorant parents.

Came for SNL screencaps. Leaving in a wig and a shawl.

Even though none of the things listed apply to me, I still know it's happening. Or, maybe, it already has.

Well, I'm intelligent. At least I like to think so.

Well, yeah, one does kinda judge people who wear porn-star balloons for breasts, it's difficult not to make some sort of character judgement there.
 
2013-11-25 11:36:27 PM  
Even if I were becoming one or both of my parents, how the hell would I know it  Neither of them as been a part of my life since I was a small child.
 
2013-11-25 11:41:36 PM  
Stupid list is stupid...also subby

1. You've asked the question, 'What songs do they do?' when a popular music act has been mentioned.

That would presume you'd recognize the songs. My response is just "who?" Unless there's something else notable.

"Katy Perry, she's the one with the big boobs, right? What, does she sing too?" (Actually thought that once.)

"Miley Cyrus? Isn't she a stripper who, like, raped everybody at a show recently?" (Partly a lie. Thanks to a daughter, I know her given name was Destiny Hope. In other words, a stripper.)

3. You've judged people based on what they're not wearing.

FTFY. Been doing that since puberty. (See above.)

7. You are sometimes reminded by your friends that it's cold outside by their pokies,and don't advise them how to dress accordingly, lest they cover up.

Ditto.

4. You moan when the music is too loud in bars.

WHAT? CAN'T HEAR YOU 'CUZ I'M HALF DEAF FROM BLASTING LED ZEPPELIN AND VAN HALEN AS A KID.


5. You think young men wear their call them "trousers" too low.

Hell, even my parents don't call them that.

11. You think the word 'sexting' represents everything that's wrong with society these days.

If teachers didn't do that, they wouldn't get busted!


/NOW I realize that

#3: That's not spandex, dipshiat. It's either plain polyester or maybe vinyl. But she is fairly hot, and finding an excuse to post this and #7 was the entire reason for making up this bullshiat clickbait list.

1. "What songs do they do?" sounds ignorant at any age. I generally don't let on that I'm curious about a band unless I have something more to say than that.

2.yeah, well I like having my back in alignment, my leg muscles not damaged, and being able to do my job quickly as opposed to driftly slowly by in ridiculously high heels.

3. So do my employers, what's your point?

4. It sucks when someone is genuinely chatting you up and you have to scream in each other's ears.

5. This isn't just a generational difference, I know tweens who think its stupid.

6. Who? What?

7. Wow, Miley...oh sorry, what?

8. No.

9. If I can't eat what I just ordered, I will send it back. I was doing that at 18.

10. Why do I have to?

11. I wish someone would sext me.

Just Great! My old man was very smart, but also a self centered egotist.
So now I suppose that makes me a smart ass?

picturescrazy: People in my generation have been saying that guys with their pants half off look like idiots since we were kids. That's not a generational thing at all.


It's their religion. They are Baddhists. They get merit and bad karma for showing their underpants. It's actually their religion to show their underpants.

Because People in power are Stupid: #11 I wish someone would sext me.


Okay, if you email me your number.

Bucky Katt: No, I'm not going to turn into a useless fat drunk who drank himself into an early grave.


I'm trying, myself.

But then my father was a hunchbacked paranoid schizophrenic who was on a high dose of Thorazine for the second half of his life and on pain pills because of his crumbling spine for the second half of that half.

And my mother...Never mind her.

No thanks. Of anybody in my family I most closely resemble my dad, and one of my major self-recriminations is how badly I treated that man -- who had to be a husband & father if it killed him, which it pretty much did. But I've been convinced since before puberty that he really had no business doing that shiat, that he just wasn't made that way, and I decided early on that my father didn't raise a fool who couldn't learn from his mistakes. If he wasn't cut out for that I probably wasn't either, especially since I never had any desire to try, and thanks to that there are no grown sprogs running around wishing I hadn't bothered.

My take on it is I'm more like my father should have been. Not that my way is any better, just that the only person my failures hurt is me.

wadjet: 11. I wish someone would sext me.


You too? Send me your number, I'll get right on it.
 
2013-11-26 04:04:36 AM  
Yup. Genetics how do they work?
 
2013-11-26 06:26:57 AM
