Except that monopoly was literally created during the great depression worth the express purpose of making people FEEL like they could buy and own things. If anything monopoly as is is more appropriate than ever. Fun fact of the day.
Everyone hates on millenials for not trying then we go ahead and give them a reason to hate on us because we make excuses for not trying
@thesamfactory, I feel like people hate on millennials for complaining about everything and deciding that nothing doesn't offend them
@thesamfactory, actually there isn't a reason for the hate on millennials. It's just the same "gen ?" Hates "gen ?+1" because it's how it always is. Our grandparents gen called our parents gen all the same things gen x calls millennials. It's just how it is
@thesamfactory, do you need to go to your "safe space"?
@thesamfactory, Except the issue in the pic is an actual issue. Millenia have less money on average than gen x and Gen y did when they were the same age, and spending power is greatly declining.
@thesamfactory, sorry, Millenials *
@thesamfactory, not all of us are so bad, I'm 27, married, have a one year old and have owned a house for two years.
@UmActually, but they still have more buying power than the children of the great depression... The world changes. Opportunities don't always remain constany. Adapt, overcome. Success will come in time.
@K2S0, my younger brother is as computer illiterate as my mom because he's on a phone or tablet more than an actual computer. He also has 0 social skills and a poor work ethic because he "deserves more than minimum wage" at his first job. I know a lot of kids like him. There's a problem with millennial.
@Totrollornottotroll, but you're grouping millennials in the same class/standing/age as your brother. Millennials are the most diverse and successful generation thus far with proficiency and learning beyond the previous. Games are becoming more complicated as they require more stimulation or risk getting bored more easily. This leads to better development and the advancement in proficiency in technology and likewise. Basically your brother is an idiot and isn't representative of the millennial generation as a whole. More useless rhetoric on your part as you are probably also a millennial as classes by the people who coined the term. Just speculation of course.
@thesamfactory, while I do not agree with your comment I'm afraid I must concede that your comment should be the second top and not mine. Unfortunately stuck pixel's system takes your up votes as "19/3) not "19-3". Therefore my 7 is theoretically higher.
@K2S0, that's why I said I know a lot of kids like him. Watch "Simon Sinek explains the millennial problem" on YouTube. There is a problem with them because of the way that generation was groomed and he hits the nail on the head.
@Totrollornottotroll, Simon Sinek is a motivational speaker and his argument in that video is flawed (as I've already seen it). He missed the nail and instead is closer to hammering a screw. All you've done is fall prey to cognitive bias, which as a motivational speaker he preys on effectively. You are part of the problem.
@K2S0, our generations elders are insanely arogant, they attack everything they didn't grow up with and try to humiliate any aspect of ours that stands out. I have gotten to the point where i can't trust them to be respectful members of society.
@Dephenistrator, as has always been the case with every generation. I agree. New innovations or different ways of life are seen as lazy. It's just constant media pandering and it's annoying.
@K2S0, funny because literally the day after I saw that video one of my friends called me to complain about his job he'd been at for 3 months because he didn't feel like he was going anywhere. Try and deny it all you want. I'm not saying every single person who is a millennial is a problem. There are a lot of fantastic younger people. However, there are a large amount of them who lack social skills and the tenacity needed to be successful in the modern workplace. I've seen it with my own two eyes. I wasn't "blinded by cognitive bias".
@Totrollornottotroll, there's a lot of people in general with that problem. It's not a millennial thing.
@K2S0, agreed they are not the only ones with that problem but the problem is more rampant among millennials and has grown much larger due to it.
@Totrollornottotroll, yeah, except no. That's not true at all. A lot of the "millennial" generation is over 18 and the unemployment rate is really low, not at an all time low, but lower than it has been recently. Meaning they have jobs, have lifestyles, and are staying in those jobs even despite the horrible market left by the previous generation trying to gaslight them. Millennials are beating a system stacked against them by panderers like you
@K2S0, actually the unemployment rate being low doesn't mean they have jobs. The active labor force is lower than its ever been. People left unemployment for welfare. That's why the unemployment rate went down.
Did gen x pay rent to their parents? Or any generation for that matter...
@talking cheese, no because they were expected to leave by then
@talking cheese, never paid rent to my parents. Moved out and paid for my own college and car. I aint gonna lie though and act like i wouldn't have accepted their help had they offered. Ive struggled pretty hard.
@bootyquake, the thing people don't understand is that my parents could pay for college with 2 part time jobs. That isn't possible now. Hell if I could pay for it with 3 I would, but when would I work with a 16-19 hour demanding degree? I'm going to hit big if I get a job out of college but damn, I'm going to be financially fvcked until then.
@K2S0, true. Which is why all could afford was a technical certificate program at a community college. If college were free, i wouldve become a doctor. But i had to hurry and get done with school and start working immediately to put food on the table for my 2 kids. Im still in student loan debt. Ughhhh. I need a winning lottery ticket 😭
@talking cheese, my only parent, my mother moved out suddenly to live with a boyfriend, abandoned me and my bro who suddenly had to work instead of looking for collage so she moved out of our place. The manager was ok with us continuing the lease. She also started asking for cigarette money as soon as i got my first paycheck even though she claims to be too ill to work since i was 14 but parties all the time and to this day doctor visits have proven nothings wrong with her. She still lives off our taxes like a leech
@bootyquake, once you get stable income and work your way up to disposable income you should follow your passion, possibly go back to school for something you enjoy. All the luck to you. I myself am going for a biomechanical engineering degree. Hoping I make enough to pay off my debt. Freshmen year and I'm $20,000 in
@K2S0, im gonna try! Good luck to you also. Sounds like a good paying field , you should be ok.
And then complaining about it on social media while blaming it on your high school teachers
As a millennial, I just hate stereotypical millennial who whine about everything, act PC, want everything handed to them, expect fast results, etc. That's all. I respect all the other generations more. A lot tougher and better values. I know there was a lot of bad things, but I'm scared as hell to see my dumb generation run the country soon.
Millennials are not what you think they are
@WickedStyx, how many genders are there? The answer is two.
@Stinkyugly, there are two many fake genders
@WickedStyx, because there are more then two.
How about instead of jail there's a safe space where you can hide from the mean people on the Internet
@Cruxio , condescending broad generalizations are starting to get old
This is actually a good idea. The railroads can be different social media sites, the jail would be "lost phone" and the finger pointing to jail could be "Unrealistic sense of entitlement...go to Lost Phone"
Why? We already do that.
I think you should roll dice at the beginning to see who gets what, and then play till the machines come to extract your gallbladder
