I Hate People Aged 20-30 Right Now



    1. They're dorks. In my time, if someone spent too much time playing around with computers, they were shunned. And this was quite rational; screwing around with computers all day and night turns one into a nearsighted social retard with poor muscle tone.


    2. They don't like (and can't properly operate) cars. People from my generation grew up lusting after 5.0 Mustangs and TPI Camaros. People under 30 spend their time riding public transportation (or walking) to hip little boutiques. I used to admire that, but what I've found is that as these "under 30s" do reach the point where a car becomes unavoidable, they're learning to drive, but doing so with the timid, myopic techniques of a grandmother. And they all live in crowded downtown areas, so the results are predictably tragic.


    3. They have no culture of their own. The beard is from Captain Ahab, the T-Shirt is from He-Man, the beer is from some awful Detroit dive circa 1970, and the music is the most stale and derivative thing of all. I'm shocked that people still go off to college and "discover" Pink Floyd. Has nothing decent been made in the last 20 years? (Answer: no, nothing has.)


    4. They're perverts. If I were to meet a member of the same sex and fall head-over-heels in love, I like to think that I'd embrace that, and that my family and friends would as well. However, this tolerance should not extend to embracing the declarations of an adolescent who spent all night on an Adderall - fueled masturbation binge and jas that he's a bisexual male wolf who's trapped in a female wolf's body. That kid needs to be slapped. Pure fantasy is not a sexual preference.


    5. They suck at software development. They don't have the attention span to do the things that really allow one to understand computing (e.g. hours and hours of assembly language or C development, followed by hours and hours of lambda calculus). So they glue together abominable .JS libraries and declare themselves hip.


    6. They're relentlessly orthodox. This is the generation that decided that, instead of having civil discourse in person and flame wars on the Internet, we'd have no discourse in person, and turn the Internet into an over-moderated echo chamber. "Just make sure you wear a jimmy hat and act tolerant and everything will be OK... right... right??" <Crickets chirping>


    7. They hate kids (even though they are kids). Babies are soooo 1990, right? Right? I know, right? (Have I mentioned that these fools end every sentence with "right"? I'm thinking that affirmation is just a bit too important to this generation... see #6).


    8. They're materialistic. This is backed up by studies, but any trip to a "cool" bar will betray this fact as well. Everyone under 30 seems to have some goddamned business idea to pitch. There's no plan for like there beyond being the next Jobs or Zuckerberg. The question I ask is this: how does Zuckerberg feel about the fact that he'll never know if anyone actually loves him or not? I'd feel pretty shitty, but I'm 41.


    9. They're poorly groomed. The beards... ugh. A beard doesn't make you a man. Functioning testicles do. I've got a pair I'll let you kiss if it makes you feel better. (Shave first, please.)


    10. They're cheaters. Upcoming test? Big meeting? Have some amphetamines (as long as your one of those rare, clinically deformed people who perform better on amphetamines... a doctor can tell you if you are. Hint: if you're human, you are).


    11. They're too serious. "Ethiopian food" is ironic. I understand it's a real place, and people have their own cuisine there. It's still ironic.


    12. They're gullible. Just got a new code base from the team lead? Make sure to upgrade every dependency to the latest version, because that never, ever breaks anything. Heard me complain about some difficult task? Go find some fly-by-night .JS library using "ButtNugget Package Manger" and add it into the project without even asking. That should definitely improve things.

    Yes it has, but not in this country, or any other country where English is the official language.

    That's why all my favorite artists over the last ten years are from either Taiwan or Singapore.

    You're also wrong about music being "the most stale and derivative thing of all".  That phrase describes movies, not music.  Everything's either a reboot, a sequel, or a big-screen adaptation of a TV show from at least thirty years ago.  Or it's about people waking up and trying to piece together what they did the previous night before passing out in a drunken stupor.




  • I don't understand how this rant could have missed taking pictures of their food. And yes, I wish these fuckers would get off my lawn, too.

    I once went to an Ethiopian restaurant. The food was really good, but all I could think about was sand.

  • As a 29 year old, I hate people 20-30 with a fierce passion, too. However, I hate the boomers (which I believe to be your age cohort) more. You wrecked the fucking country and now expect to retire with full Social Security benefits, working off the backs of others. Guess what: it's not gonna happen. Nobody is going to pay for you. In twenty years I fully expect there to be a political movement in this country to liquidate the Boomers once and for all.

    That's actually more-or-less what I was alluding to.

    Did you know the average person's body contains around 0.2 milligrams of pure gold? There are about 84 million Boomers alive today. That's nearly $700,000 in precious metals just sitting on the table, unused and wasted!



  • @bridget99 said:

    I can't believe I missed this the first time, but you have to be shitting me, right? (..right? ..right?) The 80s were hell for cool cars. The 5.0 churned out 200-ish horsepower. Oh, it's got a good aftermarket and the torque numbers aren't too bad, but goddamn. And it may just be subjective, but it looks like crap, too.

    The Camaro at least looks baller, and towards the end of the run they finally got it to put out slightly better performance than the Mustang, but it's 0-60 was still around 6. C'mon, man; I lust after cars from the 60s and 70s but as far as the 80s and 90s are concerned you might as well saved your money.

    And compared to today? Look, I fuckin' hate ricers, but I'd rather have a Civic with an absurdly large spoiler than a 5.0 Mustang. Then there's stuff like the M3, the C7 and C5 to really get your juices flowing. Hell, even the current Mustangs aren't so awful, although I'm tired of seeing them.


    Edit: And bro, I'm not trying to put you down or anything. It's just that those cars are objectively bad. I mean, I've got a soft spot in my heart for the 2.0L Ford Probe because I got a blowjob while driving one, but I realize to outsiders that it's an objectively bad car.

    But I get you, I really do: you were looking at at fold-outs of the 5.0 or Camaro while a Duran Duran music video (the one for Rio where they drink dyed champagne underwater) played in the background on the MTV and you looked up at the poster over your bed (no, not the Skeletor one, the Cheryl Tiegs one) and thought "If I had that car, then she'd be all over me like Argentinian Marines on the Falklands." But sometimes it takes a friend to tell you "No, she wouldn't. She was out of your league and would have laughed at your car, even if you did install that sweet C.B. Anyway, Cheryl Tiegs died of HIV in 1983 and was replaced with a nipple-exposing robot by the Reagan Administration to keep morale high during the Cold War."

    I skimmed over this because it was so dumb. But now that we're on the subject, Gen3 Mustangs are hideously ugly. I'm 31, but I don't lust after early-90s cars, because they were awful, but they were still better than early-80s cars. Hell, the Eagle Talon TSi churned out 195hp from an I4 engine. The point is, cars continually improve, so the only reason to long for old ones is because of looks. I love the early 70s Challenger, but they're terrible to drive. I just like to look at them.

    Morb is failing to take into account gold dental work. Dental crowns contain 2 or 3 grams of a gold alloy, anywhere from 10 to 20 karats. If we figure a crown, plus a few fillings, we may get another 2 grams per person, which improves our income by a factor of 10,000.

    I'm far too young to be a "baby boomer." My parents fall into that category. And I'm pretty sure I'll be paying for their retirement. So you better not touch my Social Security (which has grown into quite a pile of imaginary money) because I earned it and I'll need it.



    It's probably immaterial, though, since President Obama and his cohorts at the Federal Reserve have made some very good monetary decisions over the last few years, and if we can just avoid undoing them, I think everything will turn out OK for me.

    Where I live, gas is still about $3.00 per gallon, just like it was in 2008. My housing expenses are exactly the same, to the dollar, even though I've moved. In fact, I'm not aware of anything that really costs significantly more or less now than when Mr. Obama took office, or even 5 years before that (with the possible exception of gold, and that's driven by irrational demand coming from people like you).



    At the same time, unemployment has been cut in a major way. It would seem to me that my strategy (printing more money) is working, while your strategy (reneging on societal obligations) is thankfully just a fantasy.



    And why are you so hung up on that strategy? I can only imagine a few possible reasons. If you've paid nothing into Social Security, then I can see where you might selfishly want to confiscate the balances of those of us who have, to your own benefit. But that strikes me as legislated theft, and if you haven't paid anything into Social Security, you're either a bum or a thief (or maybe a schoolteacher, but I doubt that). If you have paid something into Social Security, and you're willing to forfeit it just to prove some kind of point, then you're an idiot.



    I suppose another possibility is that you're a practitioner of what I would call "folk economics." Way back when, you asked an elder (or maybe just asked yourself) why the government wouldn't just print an endless supply of money for us to all party with. And eventually, you arrived at an answer, in the form of a narrative in which money gets printed to a point of worthlessness.



    My advice is to lay off the folk economics. Or, alternatively, learn a little bit more of it. Just about any activity conforms to the law of diminishing returns. One hamburger feeds you. Ten make you ill. Printing money is no different. It yields a benefit up to a certain point, and every indicator is that we're short of that point. That's what I was getting at in my first paragraph. We need to at the very least print enough money to keep prices and wages from falling, and we're barely doing that.



    When we fall short in this regard, and constrict the money supply too much, then government debt does tend to increase. Borrowing money and printing money are alternatives to each other for the government. The fact that we've failed to do the latter means that we've done too much of the former... it has nothing to do with profligacy or moral degeneracy or big government.



    This is a bit off-topic, but it needs to be said around here: God Bless the Democratic Party and Barack Hussein Obama for getting these things right.

    At the same time, unemployment has been cut in a major way. It would seem to me that my strategy (printing more money) is working, while your strategy (reneging on societal obligations) is thankfully just a fantasy.

    Indeed, labor participation is way down. What's the causal link between printing money and losing the will to look for work? Reneging on "societal obligations" isn't a strategy but a prediction. We'll either have to print a shit ton of money or stop the programs. Either way, the Social Security / Medicare of the future will be very different from today's.

    If you've paid nothing into Social Security, then I can see where you might selfishly want to confiscate the balances of those of us who have, to your own benefit.

    What are these balances you speak of? Did you buy into Gore's lock box fantasy? No, but seriously, they're up front about how you have no rights to future benefits.

    My advice is to lay off the folk economics.


    ...

    God Bless the Democratic Party and Barack Hussein Obama for getting these things right.

    You talked about printing money. Obama's contribution was first to renominate Helicopter Ben. The new Fed Chair (not nominated by a Republican or non-Obama President), Yellen, is tapering off on the printing. I think you should lay off the folk history, or whatever it is that's informing you about what happened in the past.

    There should be a way to exchange models between Kerbal and Spore, and just... see what happens

    You already did that and the answer was: giant rocket-turds.

    What? Where's the profit in that?

    Use Rockomax-brand rockets to do it.

    Nuts to that. I'm going with a tight cluster of.solid fuel boosters and shoddy structural integrity. Ain't no way this is reaching orbit.

    Orbital penis, probably.

     

    Spore has a cheat command that exports a collada 3d model of whatever creature you're editing. Yay, xml!

    I doubt it. Every time they've tried to taper, the equities bomb because the only thing keeping them levitating is the massive influx of cash. In fact, that's the only thing the printing is doing, other than driving high levels of inflation in food, energy and housing. But they're not going to let the stock market crash which means the printing will continue until something makes them stop.

    That was what Bernanke did. But she actually got the FOMC to "vote to reduce the pace of its monthly asset purchase program by $10 billion to $55 billion" in March. Also tougher talk about raising interest rates.
