The snow was whiter when I was a kid (last week).A while ago I heard someone else complain about the younger generation, the kids these days, so I looked for the earliest reference I could find, "Our Earth is degenerate in these later days; there are signs that the world is speedily coming to an end; bribery and corruption are common; children no longer obey their parents; every man wants to write a book and the end of the world is evidently approaching." from a Assyrian tablet, 28th century BCE - Smithsonianmag.com, Ten Notable Apocalypses That (Obviously) Didn’t Happen. As pointed out, after that complaint, the Assyrian Empire lasted another 1800 years.
Maybe it's not all the younger generation, just from where you're looking at it, I know some really great, super intelligent and smart younger generation people. The thing I've suggested to many of the complainers is that our generation taught them to be the way they are so I tend not to complain too much.
Because it's the text equivalent of shouting, or at least talking really loud. If we're in some comfortable quiet space, you wouldn't want me making ordinary conversation in a shout; it's the same for bold.Ok, but explain to me why that bugs you. The reason I do it, is so I can see it.

Hi Grasshopper,Thanks to everyone who commented on my "young generation" drivel. Sometimes I go off on a tangent without thinking. You have brought me back down to earth when I tend to get on my soapbox. We do have a tendency to focus on the negative. Yes, there are many talented and smart "young" people out there today. Thanks.
