Yeah, and most of us have a part time gig pouring used motor oil into lakes and rivers.

Well I was going to cut boomers some slack for royally f'ing up the world for the sake of capital and greed, but yeah since you mentioned it.  We will be cleaning up your mess for the next few decades. And while we breathe this toxic air and die for your love of money we will do it all with a higher education level than you had, less pay when factoring in inflation, and wages that have not kept up with productivity. If there are any members of the greatest generation that are still alive and want to crap on millenials then I am game for that. But boomers screwed up almost everything they were given and then instead of fixing it in your later years, you guys turn around and blame the people who are going to have to fix it and wonder why we are angry and don't want to work like slaves and barely be able to afford to pay rent.

You won't fix pollution with gender studies degrees

Two lame right-wing comedy tropes in one thread. Please do the one about socialists drinking Starbucks and make it a hat trick!

Besides, gender studies grads would be less likely to be obnoxious brats. Consideration for others and inclusivity are not SLOB traits.

Yes, teaching people to feel oppressed by half the population is a surefire way to ensure everyone gets on swimmingly.

You forgot to add the bat-sound effects after (do-do-dolododo) *Note, I can't think of how to accurately write the sound effects.
I'd go with "Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na- BATMAN!"

lol, the usage of brats just reminded me of a story.

We had to go to some training seminar at a university in Seoul one year. It was just a cover for publishing companies to shill their books. Some older gentleman was in the row behind us and when we had to do a group task we invited him into our group. He proceeded to give a Travis Bickle-esque  soliloquy on how he hated all the other participants at the seminar and they (we?) were all "brats". It was about 2013/14, so "snow flake, millennials, safe space" type terms hadn't yet moved into the mainstream parlance. But I"m sure that's what he would be saying these days. Korea seems to attract its fair share of middle aged, bitter crank psychos.

Could very well have been. There have been a few posters here over the years that i have thought might have been Mr. Grumpy from the seminar.

Oh God, you're right. It does need one more "na".

And to think that I call myself an English teacher.  :-[
