(Washington Post)   New study shows that the Millennials' whole "Oh, woe is us, we can't find jobs as easily as our parents" line isn't really worth a trophy. Maybe a certificate for trying? OK, OK, you can have a pin, too   ( ) divider line

dascott: When I was growing up it was "do what makes you happy" "there's a place for everyone" and so on.  Now I'm 37 and I find out it's "don't have a STEM degree? well you're a farking moron who wasted your life"

That's what happens when bubbles burst.

yakmans_dad: brimed03: The Boomers pretty much suck as a generation, from kids who mostly got high to adults who sold out every ideal they supposedly had to parents who needed to be buddies with their kids to old people who refuse to retire and let the next generation get jobs.

I take it you're unfamiliar with the poem "This Be the Verse". Hopefully, after reading it, you won't have quite the same platitudinous anger you currently exhibit.

Thanks for that, O Serene One.  Very uplifting.

As I recently told a whiny Millennial: you become an adult when you stop blaming your parents.  Sure, your parents effed you up a bit, maybe even a shiatload.  And you can spend the rest of your life biatching about it like a teenager, or you can grow up and start working on fixing yourself.  That may take a lifetime, but you've got a lifetime, haven't you?  And maybe-- just maybe-- in the process, you'll pass down a little less shiat to your kids.  Who knows?  You may even teach them how to deal with their shiat earlier and better than you.  Keep that up and maybe someday there'll be a generation less effed up than the one before.

Maybe I should send that quote to your favorite poet.  Sounds like he's got some growing up to do.
