When you make these kinds of posts, it is very important to mention how you paid for college by working a part-time summer job.  Also, threaten to fight anyone under the age of 25.  It will give you "street cred", as the Millennials call it.

I know anecdotes do not equal data, but of the dozens of millennials I've worked with, only one fit the stereotype. All the rest were pretty much where I was at their age: just starting their careers, moving out on their own and smoking a shiat-ton of weed. Well, maybe they're vaping a shiat-ton of weed these days. That's about the only difference AFAICT.

It's just physics, dude.  No reason to be afraid of it.


Not afraid of it. Just proving you don't know what you are talking about. Sure there is wear, but its not a big deal. Most people get rid of cars after 5 years. This one is 12 years old and still has no problems with the clutch. Pleas tell me exactly how old it needs to be before you consider it ok.

trappedspirit: MajorTubeSteak: trappedspirit: MajorTubeSteak: I love driving stick, and it has a few advantages like down shifting instead of braking and jump-starting the car on a weak battery. Several times, I have "rocked" my car out of a snow bank by alternating between first gear and clutch.  You can't do that with an automatic.

So you like wearing out your transmission instead of your break pads, you buy shiatty cheap batteries, and often get stuck in snow banks?  I think it's time to take a closer look at your life and make some changes.

Ah yes, the beautiful negative BS response I've grown use to from Farkers like you. Sorry chief, but no. Maybe if you are an idiot like yourself, you wear out the transmission.  I've NEVER burned out one clutch or worn out a transmission.  Considering that I owned my Scion for 12 years and it still going fine proves you wrong. Nice try.  I've even used my clutch to stay in place on a hill.  It's all about subtlety and paying close attention, which is obviously not your strong suit.

I know this is hard for you to understand, but even good batteries can have a difficult time turning over a vehicle in a very cold climate, like being in Maine for the weekend in -20 degree weather.  Batteries lose cold cranking amps as the temperature drops.

But feel free to keep derping/trolling your way through life, it is serving you well.

Wow, your car has a frictionless transmission that normal use of doesn't cause wear.  Somebody call physics and tell them they stopped working.  Brilliant.  Keep piling on the make-believe justifications.  I expected nothing less.

Anit-theft device indeed.  CSB time.  I decided to get a new car and traded in my old Scion tC.  The dealer said he would have had no problem unloading it to some young person, except it's a stick.  No one drives stick anymore, he said. :(

dill doze: moothemagiccow: dill doze: moothemagiccow: Yeah someone who lived in a world without dialup for 10-15 years is the same as someone who's never lived in a world without broadband or the ipod.

Yes, actually, they are the same.  Do you really believe that a new method of talking about yourself and showing off to your friends overrides millions of years of evolution?  Sure, before the internet caught on most "social" things happened in person at a place where you and your friends spent a lot of time.  You know, like a school, or Dave's place (he's got the best TV, and a freezer full of pizza rolls).  The basic activities were the same because people now are the same as people were then.  The notes have changed but it's the same tune.

you're just arguing against classifying people now. did i just win? classifying people is for assholes.

When have I classified people?  And what do you expect to win, a gold star for participation?  In case scrolling up cramps your style, you know, having to do something for yourself, I'll fill you in.  I started out by asking what parents are thinking by allowing their kids to return from college and just live at home with no job and no ongoing education.  You came along and made some inane post that I interpreted as a sarcastic attempt to claim that ipads and internets fundamentally change human nature.  I replied to this inane post stating that no, in fact it's a minor change in context and nothing more.  And now you're saying... what exactly?

So young people believed old people when they said college was the way to a brighter future and then found their degrees didn't get them shiat, and Baby Boomers were unable to retire thanks to the Great Recession, so Millennials* are stuck working for jack shiat and living with their parents who also still have to work? Yeah, that's what everyone thought.

The devices are what really set them apart in terms of behavior IMO.

I was working at a major retailer today (I don't want to name them, but it rhymes with 'Blarget') in an active breakroom with maybe 10 mostly 20-somethings in it.

It was absolutely dead silent, every head bowed and 20 thumbs flying. It was actually somewhat eerie.

I see rooms full of senior citizens behaving the same way. It's hardly age based. The monkey brain wants its dopamine.
