I, for one, do photosynthesis. Very useful let me tell you.
@The Flame War, sounds cost effective. Im in.
@The Flame War, the rest of them survive solely on avacado toast and ass.
@ThePandaPool , one is nutritious and the other is spicy. Ill let you decide which is which, i gotta go for unrelated reasons.
@The Flame War, teach me, oh great one
@Fairy Squad Mother, Just hold a plant at gun point until it gives you the chlorophyll genes.
@The Flame War, false.
@Empshok, What's false?
@The Flame War, photosynthesis doesn't produce enough energy for humans or animals. Xkcd did a "what if" scenario and showed the energy production value if cows could photosynthesize and it didn't even account for 1% of daily demand. Unfortunately, without significant modification, we could not rely on photosynthesis.
@Empshok, I know that but you know... funnies.
@The Flame War, well it certainly worked for that, mr. top comment.
More like buying cheap stuff that can last
Or were eating things boomers dont consider food. Like quinoa
@robee, or ass
@robee, Buddy, I’m a Millennial and I don’t consider that to be food.
@Super GingerBoy, definitely ass
@robee, I’m not a boomer but I can tell you that’s not food
@BigJohnson86, quinoa no, but ass is one of the 5 major food groups. Along with: avocado toast, 4 loko, coke, and bang energy drinks.
Just like a millenial to blame everybody but themself. Probably a liberal too. Sad
@dj evolve fan club, ok boomer
@jerriest jerry , i was just asking for that one
If the market being at record highs is a financial crisis, it will be fun to see the complaints when an actual recession hits.
@Scary Terry, they should say college debt
Well maybe if you didn't go 100k in debt on an art degree and actually got your hands dirty for a change, you wouldn't be in this predicament.
@Not him again, or millennials are just eating less and don't have kids so they buy less food
@bobs and vegene, I mean, I'm age-wise a millennial, but I honestly don't think the powers that be have the age range correct. I can work on anything and do so, but my sister, who is 6 years younger than me is one of those types who basically refuses to get any job that doesn't exactly fit her degree. That's how I view millennials. Even though I am one, I don't consider myself one, because I worked my ass off to get to where I am, and younger people expect to just have jobs handed to them because they went to college.
@Not him again, Girl I went to uni with was like that - she did some kind of eco-biology Degree, and insisted that she was only going to work for an eco-charity or NGO. Two years of unemployment/random temping later, she started a career working at the Transport Research Lab and ended up designing a road network down in Australia.
@Nellybert , that's good, but it doesn't mean you have to be unemployed and complain about bills for 2 years.
@Not him again, She was waaaaay too principled at that point. She’s a good friend, and I love her dearly, but if she was at uni now I just know she’d be one of the snowflakes voting to ban clapping in case it upsets people with social anxiety.
@Nellybert , yeah that's why my sister and I don't really talk, because she is one of those very outspoken snowflakes. Like dude, we grew up in the same house with the same parents, wtf made you so different? I've had to meet her 3 times when she was younger (like 20) to change her tire bc she can't drive worth a shjt. Every time her ex boyfriend was with her, and after the third time, I looked at him and told him that he was worthless and didn't deserve to be with her. About a month later she dumped him. So even though my sister and I don't get along, at least she got rid of that loser
@Not him again, agewise im a millenial 100% but i also put myself through school and worked 2.5 jobs to do so and have a great job now. So i guess what in saying is i dont know what i am. Please help.
@Not him again, I gotta hold my hands up and I’ve never changed a tyre - but in my defence, I’ve only ever had one puncture and that left me on the narrow hard shoulder of a motorway at rush hour with the flat on the side nearest the road. I was in a suit, had no high vis, and didn’t fancy that as my first go at doing a change - so I called out the fleet repair contractors to do it. Since then I’ve made sure to carry a high vis jacket, warning triangle and ultra bright glow sticks (like road flares, but safer) - and typically, never needed any of it. I can fix an oven, cut down a tree, and lay concrete though, so I feel I earned the lost man-points back though. :)
But seriously, while I’m not in to the whole ‘men must be manly and emotionless’ thing I do believe that people (of both sexes) should be able to deal with most of the domestic problems life can throw at us - like basic electrical wiring, fixing a flat, and maintaining a lawnmower.
@Nellybert , it's one thing if it happened to you one time and you didnt know, but 3 times is ridiculous. And I still believe in chivalry, so he should have learned the first time and did it for her. He was just an idiot.
@robee, good for you (and I dont mean that sarcastically) I had a nearly full time job while I was a junior in high school, so I feel you. That's why I have no sympathy for these people who complain about not finding work.
@Not him again, thanks! Same for you man, its never easy. I realize my cpmment came off as braggy now so my bad for that, but i agree with you there. I do think its a bit harder to make it on your own these days too though.
@robee, I don't think it came off as braggy. You did what you had to do, and I bet it made you a better person, and most likely more competent in life
@Not him again, can not disagree with that, i learned what the phrase work ethic meant after college for sure
@Not him again, also on an unrelated note, props on the top commenter badge. I just saw that im working my way up now, im about to break the top 10 and im more excited about that than i thought id be.
@Not him again, the demographics on this app are gonna get you downvoted, but you are absolutely right. The economy is booming and if you have a useful degree you are thriving right now. When the only viable career path for your degree is becoming a teacher for that same degree... your degree might be useless and you blew 100k on a piece of paper
@Not him again, Bluntly, changing a tyre isn’t exactly the hardest thing to learn either - took me all of 5 minutes on YouTube to learn.
@robee, I didn't even know I had one considering half the stuff I say people downvote to the 7th level of hell, but thank you for the recognition
@Not him again, maybe if real wages didn’t go down over the last 60 years we would be in better shape.
@Not him again, i have met many people from all generations and in every generation there are people that have a sense of entitlement. To think this only applies to millennials is foolish.
@Joeyc1, i wonder what metrics you use to judge the economy? The economy is doing so well that we need to attempt to stimulate it by reducing the interest rate?
@Implicit88, you're right, there have been plenty. But keep in mind the older generations also learned things outside of what they were actually studying. Because how tf are you going to get to school if the chain slips off your bicycle and you don't know how to fix it? The same applies now, just more modernized.
@Not him again, many people do learn multiple things, much hasnt changed. Almost every generation has complained about the next generation even though most of the stuff they criticize the subsequent generation is caused by lack of parenting and overall environment the past generation created.
@Not him again, my grandparents, who grew up in depression and WWII, raised me so that's my point of reference on what "hard times" look like. To me it's fascinating how one could have many of these creature comforts like a current gen phone, waste money on novelty foods, binge watch TV and think they are living in "hard times"... is more about their relative perspective than anything else. I'm glad I have my perspective though and I'm not belittling others... it's changed my approach to life and attitude.
@Implicit88, I'm not here saying I can wire and program a network, but for crying out loud, learn how to do simple car repairs before you call yourself an "engineer"
@Not him again, got an engineering degree. Still in hella debt
@jerriest jerry , but can you change a tire?
This is just saying they eat at home with their parents.
Lots of UberEats is the answer to this conundrum
Or maybe they just shop smarter? Or, if millennials are having less children, then maybe they just don't need as much?
God need to stop going to Taco Bell every time I turn around
