        I don't like wearing sweatpants outdoors, I feel like a slob. Cold night in front of a movie at home sure, too many people wander around in sweats looking like they don't give a damn and probably they don't. But when they get home, they hop on the internet and start telling people everything that is wrong with the world and there is nothing they can do about it because somebody else is preventing them. "Not my fault, I didn't do it, I'm incapable of fixing it, you better do something or you are worthless, because somebody else has to fix my life for me."

        Probably extrapalated too much from sweatpants, but you get what I mean.

          I do think this is part of the problem. Smart phones and iPads don't help either. I see too many parents either letting their kids play video games on the iPad for hours on end or just ignore them while they spend all their time on facebook. Digital Media turns your brain to mush.

          I mean heck. If you're going to take your kid to the park. At least make an effort to play with them.

            Exactly. This is exactly my point.


            And honestly, this trend is recent. I was born in 92 and even when AOL instant messenger was getting big, we didn't sit on our computers all day. My dad would kill us. We had an hour each on the computer each day when we were growing up and that was it. We had to do "Saturday projects" around the house. We were latch key kids at some point, but we still went outside and played and not sat around the house all day.


            Now people don't find the pleasures of traveling and such anymore, and if they do, it has to be broadcasted. I hate when my mom posts pics of us on FB, it's so annoying. Once in a while I'll drop a bomb *** selfie lol but I see people posting selfies on every social media outlet everyday and i'm like wtf stop. I will admit our generation seeks attention more than ever. I don't think previois generations were as attention seeking. Unfortunatelg, I blame lack of good parentings and all these damn social media sites. I have them, but not to broadcast to everyone every minute or everyday.

              The problem with kids today is parents today.

              They suck.
              Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                Sometimes. Or it could be what you go through when reality comes crashing down upon you. Growing up, I wanted for nothing. My parents always helped and supported, then suddenly they weren't there anymore just at the time I became an pseudo-adult. It was like the world split apart on me and I did not handle it well. Took a couple of years and a bit of help from the only family I had left to grow up and deal with what I am facing not what I want to be facing.

                Each person has their own path and it isn't fair to group them into particular generational assumptions of behavior and thought process. I miss my parents and wish they were still here, but I am a stronger person today than I would have been if they were still around.

                    "Pseudo-Adult".......That's as close as I ever got.

                      LOL. What I meant was I was 18 and a freshman in college. Technically an "adult", but nowhere near ready to be an adult.

                            I don't do facebook. Frankly, it annoys me - alot. It would be a lot more interesting if people actually commented how they felt instead of the orgy it has become. Everyone strokes each other so they all can feel good about themselves. It's the opium den of social media.

                            I only have a few posts on facebook. The last one being - "If the only reason why you friended me is to show off pictures of your kids, I have news for you. I probably don't give a **** about them." People didn't like that very much. Haha. That was many years ago.

                                You blame kids for what they have....not sure if that's fair
                                It's fairly recent I think. I used to play a game called World of Warcraft religiously. It was an online multipler game type deal where you would spend hours and hours a day playing .. the more you played, the "stronger" your character would get. It was an evil cycle. At one point I was playing 15 hours a day. The game is like over 10 years old now. And the kids playing it now are far different then people who played it 10 years ago. Now, you get achievements just by opening the box. Everything that was done through months of waste time in front of the computer 10 years ago can now be done in a matter of a week. When we played it back then, the time sink was just a part of the grind. Now, kids complain that it takes too much time and that things can't be done given other things on their schedule.

                                Here's a thought kid. If you want something, how about you put in the time? If you want something from the game and it takes too much time, re-shuffle your priorities. Sure, you'll never go out and hang with your friends, but at least you'll get that shiny new weapon.
