I'm so tired of hearing about how my generation are all semi-retarded and that if my parents had just beaten me a little more, I wouldn't have turned out so bad. People have been bitching about the newest generation and claiming their own's superiority since the dawn of man. I bet people in the 1800s used to be all "back in my day, if we had to go somewhere, we walked! Now every kid you see has his own horse. What happened to the good old days?" There really isn't one generation that's better than all the others. My grandparents generation may have been more hard-working than ours, but they were also racist, sexist, and overall intolerant. Every generation has its setbacks. This one happens to be the unusually large supply of idiots.

What the fuck is wrong with racism, sexism and overall intolerance?

Well if it's just about intelligence, there is a well known effect called the Flynn effect. It describes that even though psychology defines IQ as a stable trait calculated from the average of the target population, it is still rising steadily with every generation.

technically it cant, as the IQ rating scale is determined by the masses average. so if its higher then last year, they knock the scale down a few notches

That's the beauty of it. Every time they change the norm scale, they have seen a generall increase in IQ making the new norm (100) higher than last years. So, yes, technically 100 is always average, but there is still an inflation in intelligence required to reach 100.

i really dont care about how superior my generation is to yours... hell, im rooting for you guys cuz your generation is inheriting the earth (in a sense). im just sick and fucking tired seeing how much of whinny little bitches you guys are... its like if my generation asked your generation to toss around a football, your generation would be like "ugh... ok, maybe after i fix my chipped nail and detangle my hair and update my twitter account... and then you take a picture holding the ball and posting it on instagram saying that your "hanging wit ma boyz playin tackle football"

You're judging a whole generation on a minority.
#126 to #121 - saladtongsofdeath (01/30/2013) [-]
quite the contrary, its actually the minority that doesnt act that way... the rest of your generations cries and moans when they get the iphone 4s instead of the 5.... i didnt get an N64 till four years after it came out... and that was my first console ever, i had to trade almost all my pokemon cards and pogs for it
User avatar #130 to #126 - giblets (01/30/2013) [-]
Actually, the majority doesn't moan, so you don't hear about them. (By your generation what age are you talking about?)

This image has expired
so you're saying that this picture was based off of only a few people?... no, a stereotype exist because of what the majority does, not what the minority does... perfect example: "black people like watermelon" of course not all black people like watermelon, but the majority of them does and by your generation im talking about 00's kids

That picture is based off a minority... They just standout and are hated by the internet community.
I could go into the local university/college and find maybe 3 people who fit the description to the left.

Man, you've got me excited, today I bought an Enter Shikari ticket.
#176 to #152 - anonymous (01/30/2013) [-]
You clearly haven't been to my college. Sigh.
#154 to #152 - saladtongsofdeath (01/30/2013) [-]
sooo using your logic, you are telling me that only a minority of black people like watermelons?
#157 to #154 - Jameshaich (01/30/2013) [-]
Are you...
Is he...
Humans like watermelon regardless of race. it's just a sterotype...
I'm scottish, and I know 3 gingers, i know nobody who wears kilts unless a very special occasion.
Most people I know hate haggis...
Sterotypes aren't based on a majority...
#158 to #157 - Jameshaich (01/30/2013) [-]
Sorry, i mean Humans dislike or like watermelon regardless of race.
Not everyone likes watermelon.

Okay so the majority of French people wear berets, striped shirts and have garlic around their necks?
And what age are you?

I agree to some degree, but you must admit that the current generation is much different than the past ones.
True respect is hard to find these days, especially among children.
Gradually more and more has become acceptable that were previously not deemed so. Girls can walk around wearing skirts the size of underwear and a small cloth covering perhaps only from her breasts to the top of her bellybutton. These things have become acceptable and are now considered fairly normal.
Certain moral values have greatly changed in a fairly short time period, and not for the better if you'd ask me.

That's what I've allways thought aswell. THe thing is, you mostly hear of the "smart" and "sucessfull" persons from past generations.. So when you see your own and the next generations, all you hear/see is what you look for; dumness and retardedness.

I'd say our generation is one of the smartest. The world recods for youngest people who does this and this is beaten all the time (for different thins, such as chess, mathemathics, physics, sports etc. etc.) If you single out the smartest/most sucessfull people of our generation and the next, then you'll see it's not that bad at all.
