  1. If you guys knew how to work a smart phone, you could just uber everywhere and its not your problem. 😉
  2. I mean, that's a big part of it. We came out of school during the recession, and had zero job opportunities with all the debt of university. Then we see tons of articles written on WSJ or MarketWatch or mainstream publications that chide Millennials for not buying houses, "killing" certain industries, and as you said in another post, we also get attributed for things Gen Z does lol. You wouldn't see Millennials or even Gen Z kids act "radical" if our jobs would just give us decent benefits and pensions and regulate some of the obscene class disparity. Going back to my original post in this thread, social media has been made much worse by (1) monetizing and harvesting of data (which is another topic for another day) and (2) older generations struggling to adapt and adjust to the changing media landscape. I think the rate of technological change is so rapid that older individuals just really struggle adapting. Think of your parents or older family members trying to learn smart phones, make Facebook profiles, etc. It doesn't come easy to them, because it's such a different world. They are victims of misinformation, and their trust in traditional media is being exploited. Cronkite is gone and in his place are clickbait fake news all over Facebook or the internet, and it's typically the baby boomers who buy into it and believe it. Much of it are opinion pieces being passed off as news, and you see this on major networks as well. If this is what constitutes keeping up, I'd rather tune out. I'll make my own decisions based on policy and debate observations and turn off when they cut to their "expert analysts".
  3. "ok boomer". I just wanted to see the justification. Still warrants the same response.
  4. Lol I didn't know reading Facebook debates with Minion memes and being lied to on all sorts of media outlets constituted "engaging in civics".
  5. What is lazy? Trump? Outrage culture? The Media? Me?
  6. Will the Tigers ever develop *any* positional player? 🙃
  7. I have news fatigue, tbh. It is a combination of Trump and outrage politics. Trump on his own is awful enough, but the #RESIST culture of being outraged, and then outraging even more at something entirely predictable is exhausting and I really see the 2020 cycle just absolutely burning a lot of people out.
  8. Wayne Huizenga owned the Dolphins, Marlins, and Panthers in the late 90s.
  9. I'm not exactly happy for this extension, but what is the benchmark we are using to determine whether or not Avila is ultimately a failure? How many years?
  10. Can't help but feel the Cabrera-to-DH move is a couple years overdue?
  11. Probably the healthiest approach to any rebuild tbh
  12. I'm actually going to sunday's game, going to kick back and relax and watch some very poor baseball. Whether on TV or in person, I can't seem to escape it. 😰
  13. Hope Wolves win the FA semi tomorrow. Been a rollercoaster following them the last ten years!
