(Forbes)   Millennials are using cash far more often than credit cards in the wake of recent security breaches and the realization that they don't make enough money to have credit cards in the first place   ( divider line

RockofAges: Usury is so reprehensible that even fundies eschew it. Let that one sink in.

Ooh, someone got a new thesaurus for their Quinceañera.

Unfortunately for you, you are so totally wrong that anyone reading this thread will be able to discern this at a moment's notice. Swing and a miss.

Oooh, posture of authority coupled with a baseless dismissal AND an appeal to the masses in one sentence.  And on the INTERNET!  Sustained +12 damage.  I need a power up.  Hand me those reins!   *snort*  I'll bet none of this is sinking in.

RockofAges: But the rule is -- the boomers as a generation were handed everything. Economic prosperity, free love, and a fake hippy movement

I'm sorry, but your "rule" is largely prefab malarkey and pretty much the whole Time Life box set.  It is.  Why would I make that up?  I'm just trying to keep the f*cking lights on here like everybody else until somebody hands me those oft touted reins.  You really believe a bunch of spoiled kids who, 80% of which, had working class parents and lived in a GI Bill house all the sudden said "let's dress funny, pretend to reject greed and the military industrial complex turning the world into a sh*thole and then, like in 20 years, we'll take the whole thing over and do a lot of coke"?  Find me one demographic on earth other than the 1% whose con is that well thought out and I'll kiss your ass in Macy's window.  Your scapegoat is plush animal and it was made in Taiwan.

illannoyin: Isn't the millennium only 14 years old?

/I don't really understand how that whole generation naming thing works

The millennials are the generation that "came of age" at the turn of the century. We say "came of age", because while other generations may have "grown up", the millennials just sort of stumbled from birthday to birthday. But that's beside the point. Another cohort is hot on their heels and will be entering the workforce in five years or so, and we don't have a name for them yet. I know everyone has a lot on his plate at the moment, and we don't have to solve this problem right away, but we should be looking for ideas. I'm sure the millennials want to start making fun of someone else as soon as possible, and we'll need to have a name ready to go.

The Muthaship: HindiDiscoMonster: If I get robbed of my cash, how do I get it back?

Life has risk.

Being a grown man isn't for everyone.

Do you watch a lot of money rap videos or something?

I have one credit card, I use it as much as I can and I keep it paid off.  I never accumulate interest charges and I reap the points benefits this card offers, I can use it online easier then hard currency or a regular bank card.  I hear people complain that they can't use a credit card because they can't mentally map the association between their checking account and their credit card balance.  They are idiots, mouth-breathing idiots.  It takes all kinds in the world I guess.  I still like to collect coins though, pennies particularly.  I keep them between my butt cheeks for a few days and then fill up those take a penny leave a penny dishes, you are welcome.

Cerebral Ballsy: True, true. Also, if you don't buy stuff on credit, you don't need to worry about your credit rating.

This cunning plan only works if you're part of the Renters and leasers for life crew!  Or your are ridiculously rich or miserly, or both.
