I absolutely love the fact that this brought back the original meme format, and the content is incredible
The millennial falcon, able to make the legendary Starbucks run in only 12 parsecs
@Professor Kukui, he ain’t wrong though...and I’m gen x
@Professor Kukui, you misspelled Kestrel*
@Professor Kukui, I always thought a parsec was a measurement of distance rather than time.
@SeelenVerKaufer , It is, but that mistake made it into the movie.
@Link Silverblade, I’m not sure if this is a cover up, but apparently Han was intentionally bs’ing when he said that. I think it was the novelization that added more detail to that convo
@Link Silverblade, fun fact, it’s not a mistake. A big theory of physics pertaining to faster than light travel is the warping of space-time. In theory you could make great distances seem like much shorter distances depending on how good your “warp drive” was, or how much your vessel can bend, or warp, space-time. So thousands of years in the future you very well could travel thousands of light years in much shorter distances... like 12 parsecs maybe.
@Niam Leeson, you are correct. if I recall it was that he flew close to planets, using their gravity to slingshot himself around.
@Niam Leeson, Interesting stuff.
Seriously though I went around to a bunch of places trying to hand in resumes and they just said go apply online that's how it's done.
@A Math Dealer, i had the same experience, even one baker who told me he would lose money on me because i had no experience. That brings about the whole, how do you get job experience for your first job crap
@Dephenistrator, you work fast food
@Suicide Squad Sucks, no, i used to work grocery, but my store closed and i work cleaning at a hospital at night now so me and my wife can take turns working and watching the kid
@A Math Dealer, yeah I've talked with a few people and every job fair ends with "well it was nice to meet you I'll take your resume but dont forget to apply online!"
@A Math Dealer, if it makes you feel any better when you apply online they don’t say anything at all. Ever.
@A Math Dealer, you apply online, then weasel your way to the manager with the resume. It’s really easy if you do it right.
@Child Slapper, it's really easy to say that when you have no idea what you're talking about. I already did apply online, I just wanted to reinforce it by going in with a resume but nobody wanted one.
@A Math Dealer, I do know what taking about, because I’ve gotten every job I’ve ever wanted, and actually run a side business helping people with social anxiety get jobs and interview well. Not only do I know what I’m talking about, I’m also certified, and much more qualified than you. You have no idea what you’re doing. Read the Proximity Principle, it at least look it up and you’ll realize you have it all backwards
@Child Slapper, this shows just how ignorant you are. You're acting like you know my exact situation when you don't. Then you go and be an ásshole about it.
@A Math Dealer, you were a jerk first. You don’t know what your doing, and you blame the society around you rather than your own shortcomings. People who blame others instead of realizing their own faults will never get far.
We run your nursing homes, bitch
@A Deformed Penis, actually, there aren't enough of us to manage all the retiring elderly of the baby boomer generation. Nobody is saying it, but I am genuinely concerned. I'm thinking that huge numbers of retired baby boomers are going to die early because either there aren't enough, or the rift between the generations is going to unmotivate our generation to offer sufficient care.
@Empshok, good. There's too many people in this world
I say we all just gang up on old people like that SpongeBob episode where they beat up Old Man Jenkins
@The Landshark , or the boondocks with stomp em in the nuts?
Anyone who works 96 hours a week just to pay rent is bad with money
@Quency200, I would say they need to move to a cheaper place.
Ah, the legendary Millennial Falcon
What’s this? A previous generation doesn’t understand that things have changed? That’s never happened before! Not to worry, you won’t understand the hardships of your children either.
@Sarcastic Wombat, somebody went on a rant with this meme. The cycle never changes
I just wanna know where this part-time job that’s paying for college so I can jump on that ASAP.
@DJ Master RKelly, The 1980s.
cry baby pigeon?
Why is everyone okay with these Facebook tier memes? Stop.
@The Freaking FBI, so you don’t like the originals? I’m sorry it isn’t just deep fried nonsense or a Twitter screenshot🙄
@Not A Wolf, I love originals, not Facebook tier ancient memes.
@The Freaking FBI, sorry I should have said “classic formats” this particular one just recently surfaced anywhere so I don’t understand your point of view, that’s okay though everyone is entitled to their opinion
We could solve the housing crises within a few years if we shut down immigration completely. But that would be waaaaycist.
@BlazingBowman, um I think that might mess with our economy
@magrar, it would increase our earnings and the amount the average worker gets paid. Really its just basic supply and demand. Less people means less competition for work means more competition between businesses for workers. Less people means less buyers for houses means price for houses go down.
That last one is a complete lie. Read proximity principle. Job hunting online is wayyy harder.
The schooling one got me cuz everyone in my parents generation and older never even finished highschool let alone post-secondary
Aye how about you players stop hating the game and get on your grind.
-Sincerely, a 96' kid who owns a hous and is almost out of college debt free (no help)
I have resorted to study for my certification as a quality engineer just so I can network with other people in different industries to land a different job.
@megamanx181x, I’m trying to get into the game industry while studying at college and dear god it feels like connections are the only way to get a decent foot in. Even for junior level shjt they want you to already have experience shipping a AAA fvcking game. I’m hoping I might be able to use PAX West to spread my name around and see if anyone bites.
@TheRatMan, i feel you man, keep at it and don’t let up in getting a connection. Remember sometimes it isn’t what you know but who you know
We're an oversensitive generation?
How many fights did you start because some punk looked at you wrong or called you a sissy?
@SimonPetrikov, I mean, that on one hand, on the other, Tumblr.
This brings back memories of the old "memes" that were on this app, before we called them memes, we just called them funny pictures...hence why I started using this app back in 2011...
@I am the potato, why does this make me feel old saying that? I just turned 24...actually yeah, I was about 15...damn...
@I am the potato, sorry, I think I just hit my quarter life crisis typing that...ignore everything that you have read...I'm just wondering where my life has gone. I had the brains to finish school and work a prestigious job, but instead of that, I'm working under a certificate...I could've had my bachelor's by now...I mean it's not that bad, I have the woman of my dreams, I have two dogs, and I own a house, but that's all from some really fvcked up stuff i had experienced...she is 30, I am younger and I want to marry her, and have kids, but I know she has a biological clock that is keeping things short...not only that, the sex life has gotten much worse, even though I went through a trade school just for her, cook just for her, and got a dog just for her...I know I havent gone overboard with the gifts, because she has returned the favor, but I feel like she isn't sexually attracted to me...I know she loves me, and I know that she is loyal, but idk what to do...and I know shes not with
@I am the potato, me cuz i own a house, or any of that, if anything she makes 3x more than I ever will, and she has paid all of the bills and property taxes so that I could focus on school, but idk, I just feel like she doesn't have the same feelings as I do for her...I just don't know how to feel lately...I love the field that I'm in. I love the life that I have. I love this woman, even if we don't have a sex life, she is my bestfriend, and my closest companion...I just feel like I'm missing something...I feel like I have failed, and wont be able to provide for her and my future children...I feel like I have wasted all that money in college, just to go drink...but at the same time, I would have never met her if I was like that...I dont know...I love her, but I'm afraid of letting her down...I'm afraid of being a failure in her eyes, even though she will never see it as that...I'm scared of what the future brings...most because i plan on proposing to her, and i have her family's
@I am the potato, approval, and her brother, who is an army vet, has given me his blessing and agreed to be the cleric at the wedding...idk...I'm just scared that I'm going to let them all down, I'm scared that they will resent me if im not able to provide...im scared that I will break her heart, or disappoint her family....
...I'm sorry if you read all this...I have a lot on my plate right now other than what I have written...I guess I just needed to get something off my chest...I would only do it on this community, because I've been a part of it since the days of jamal...I trust everyone here...I just needed to vent to someone. So if you are still reading, thank you for reading...and I'm sorry it's a long post, I would send a picture of a potato for the length, but instead, just look at my name. Have a great day
