Seriously. What am I going to be able to tell my grandkids about how hard life was and how badass we were? Previous generations had world wars, a great depression. Vietnam. Tuberculosis. Polio. Civil rights movements. Invention of rock and other types of music. Woodstock and acid. There was no internet, no instant pornography. Pussy was hairy and harder to come by. They industrialized. They invented the car. They built highways across the world. They learned to fly and made flying a part of life. They all smoked indoors and nobody complained. People died early and often.



What does this generation have? Oprah's book club. Teletubbies. Emo. Passion fruit flavored vodka. Veganism. Sex and the City. Anime. Did I mention emo? Yeah, when I'm 90 years old shitting in a diaper smoking cigarettes and trying to be all old-school with my grandkids, I'll still have to acknowledge that my gay ass generation embraced this:

You can tell them how you blogged until your fingers were bleeding about twilight and Iraq.

Tell them, that despite sever carpal tunnel syndrome, you managed to stand strong with your guild during that last WOW raid.

You can tell them that despite all these things, you never gave in to them. The only thing you have into was The Offspring. Also, I'm sure that by the time you have grandkids, your list will be tripled in size. haha

Hot TOpic is cool and so is Aiden. I am not emo though. There was 9/11! It has been going on for 8 years now. That is a good one! It might not be hard or something you accomplished, but the first African-American president!

I think its guaranteed that every generation is pussier than the previous. You think Vietnam vets are tough? Fuck 'em, they got ancestors who survived THE BUBONIC PLAGUE. The black death.

"Hey sonny, you think your tough? Fuck you. In my day kids went to school with guns and shot each other, what do yo do? Feck off."

Also, those of us who were teens in 90ies will have their right to brag about being pioneers of Internet, oh-so oldschool and 1337. It seems pathetic today, but in 10-20 years it would be as grand as fighting for gay rights or discovering new ways of writing music... oh wait.

Too much of peaceful life takes its toll. But you can always go on a journey to find a tuberculous hairy pussy in Vietnam to start a war there. If you're that depressed that is.

This thread is really stupid (I agree with cali). Obviously you can't have anything to brag about your past until you know what's happened in the future. We don't know how life is going to be, so how do we know we won't be able to be proud of gay marriage? Coming out of this economic depression? The first non-white president? Surviving the swine flu? Solar powered cars? Maybe some of these things don't seem that big now, but they could be later.

edit: oh yeah, internet and school shootings, too :P

Yo broseph brosepherson let me break it down.

Previous generations had world wars, a great depression. Vietnam. Tuberculosis. Polio.
World War II was only like 6 years long. We've been in Afghanistan for 8 years already and not even thinking of leaving for at least another 2 years. And if wars are anything like girls, we've got it pretty good. Two wars are better than one, broski!

Civil rights movements.
Our generation IS gay, and they're fighting for their rights too, brohamerson.

Invention of rock and other types of music. Woodstock and acid.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSN_Zut804c

There was no internet, no instant pornography. Pussy was hairy and harder to come by.
WE INVENTED THE FUCKING INTERNET BROKOWSKI


They industrialized. They invented the car. They built highways across the world. They learned to fly and made flying a part of life.
MARS FUCKING MARS


They all smoked indoors and nobody complained. People died early and often.

I'm not gonna take a pro-dying early stance, so you can take the points on that one.

The Offspring sprung into life in 1984-89, not 2000-09.

I haven't lived in the USA for a while now, but I can't see how Jonas Brothers and Twilight could be more popular anywhere than it is here. And if it is, I don't even want to see it, haha. Our generation is really divided. Some like Jonas B. and Miley Cyrus, while others are staying strong and like Iron Maiden and etc.
I know one thing only. My kids are going to enjoy the good stuff. I'll keep them away from naked vampires and werewolves and playback 'artists'. They'll be listening to Offspring and watching Die Hard all day :D

Yeah, but they neither sprung into life nor did they defined THIS (00-09) generation.
84-95 at best.

i think the majority of the population seem to like Twilight. It's scary. My friend got viscious with me when I told her it was a load of shite. She actually went insane. "IT SOLD OUT IN IT'S FIRST WEEK, IT'S YOUR OPINION THAT IT IS SHIT, I THINK LOADS OF THINGS YOU LIKE OR SHIT SO STOP MOCKING IT" Yeah....it has turned people crazy.

I'll tell you one thing... the twilight franchise did have some potential. I read the first half of the first book (this before the movie came out), because my now ex girlfriend insisted I read it. So I read the first half, and it really wasn't that bad. The book was well written enough and if in the right hands, could've been a very dark, decent movie. I didn't love the book, I sure as hell didn't love the storyline, but it wasn't that bad. The movie really fucked everything to hell. The directors were more preoccupied in making a movie for 12 year old girls who want to see guys being allergic to t-shirts. The sad part is that we're gonna have to endure another 3 movies D:

I agree with you 100%. What people seem to forget is that there is such a thing as over-advertising. Everytime, I hear or see Twilight this or that, my eyes roll into the back of my head and I haven't even seen the movie or read the book and I am not vaguely interested after all the hype.

I dunno...i read the first two pages, and she is an awful writer. Too many adjectives, and always the same setence structures. Was like some preteen wrote it.

Not to mentioin that the charcters are pretty black and white and in no way interesting. And....a sparkly vampire? How faggy is that

Yeah, she isn't the best writer. But I thought it was decent enough to read. The sparkly vampire? Stupid. I know. The characters suck. What I'm saying is, the movies could have been much much better if they were put in the right hands. It was still be a teenage love story, but it would be better. ESPECIALLY if you replace those lame ass actors. Holy christ, they're horrible.

Now let's stop talking about twilight because it doesn't even deserve our conversation over it, lol.

Our generation is all that bad to me. Sure, we have Jonas Brothers and all kinds of other crap... but we got to see the first black person be elected president, we've seen amazing advances in technology and science, and hell, we might just see the end of humanity in 2012. Not bad :rolleyes:

You guys are forgetting Animaniacs.

Meh... New Moon wasn't an awful movie. It was a little too "My heart is broken, now here is my childhood friend to hold me and heal my wounds, oh wait, my first love has returned. sorry best friend, you were just a rebound guy."

I would've liked it more if there were more involving the crazy red head trying to kill her and such.

Never read the books.

The one thing I really like about my generation is a widespread refusal to really grow up and stop being shamelessly silly.

My favorite thing to do is play games. Same with my friends, even the ones who are outwardly smart and successful. In private we drink ungodly amounts of soda, gorge on fast food, make retarded jokes and play games for as long as we can without falling asleep in our chairs.

I'm 27. Most of my friends are 30-ish. Some are single, some not. Some have awesome jobs that pay well. Some do shit for shit pay. The only constant amongst us is that none of us have kids. And that's because none of us are willing to give up being kids ourselves. I love this. And sometimes hate it.

Maybe it's just my perception, but it seems to me that my generation is refusing to embrace adulthood as much as possible. Responsibility is ok, as long as we can cast it off at the end of the working day and be silly again. At this age my parents and all of my friends' parents had at least one kid and a mortgage to pay. They had to grow up whether they wanted to or not. We seem to be actively avoiding this. We do what is required, like work and pay our rent. But beyond that? I don't think I know anyone who really has a savings plan. Retirement is something we don't think about. The future is something we don't really want to acknowledge.

My sense of self worth takes a beating over this. I don't measure up to my parents. I don't measure up to my considerably older sibling. But I think I'm having more fun. And I think I like that.

I totally agree with you. People are desperate to never let go of their inner child, but most end up doing so. Like you said, you make stupid jokes with your friends and play games, and that makes you happy. Alot of people try to come off as a 'responsible grown up', mostly because they want to be above others.
I'm 18 and I have a savings plan. But I don't try to be more responsible and mature than I already am. I try to enjoy every aspect of 'being a child', such as entertaining myself with simple things, with friends.
