Gen x unity. Member when mtv brainwashed us? That was cool...err... evil

2018-08-24 05:07:19 UTC  

The only thing I watched on MTV was Beavis and Butthead...and Headbangers Ball. 🤘🏻

2018-08-24 05:07:28 UTC  

Hell yeah!

2018-08-24 05:07:45 UTC  

Steady decline?

2018-08-24 05:08:29 UTC  

The opening riff...Prong... Steady Decline?

I feel like there's this awkward gap between gen X-ers and millennials. There are many shared experiences, but the fact we grew up with Internet and social media kind of sets us apart in some ways.

2018-08-24 05:10:18 UTC  

It does. But if the interwebs ever fails we remember how to do stuff without it. Well, barely, but still.

2018-08-24 05:12:23 UTC  

But I know what you mean, I have often thought the same thing. Nonetheless I still make an effort to get some of the dynamics of the way millennials communicate and language and stuff, I think a lot of it is cool.

2018-08-24 05:12:38 UTC  

Eh, I've been on the internet since like early high school, and had a computer long before that.

2018-08-24 05:12:59 UTC  

So it's not like Gen X'ers are complete web retards.

2018-08-24 05:13:01 UTC  

At least not me.

2018-08-24 05:13:05 UTC  

Of course

2018-08-24 05:13:10 UTC  

I just started college when internet came

2018-08-24 05:13:25 UTC  

I'm glad I didn't grow up with the internet and smart phones and all that.

2018-08-24 05:13:31 UTC  

I had to go out irl and play with real kids.

2018-08-24 05:13:43 UTC  

And get real sunlight.

2018-08-24 05:13:57 UTC  

without my face buried in that stupid device 24/7

2018-08-24 05:14:18 UTC  

My nephew (13) just sits on the couch playing on his ipad all the time.

2018-08-24 05:14:39 UTC  

I played outside, rode bikes, skateboarded, etc.

2018-08-24 05:15:20 UTC  

@FACINEMA refrain from echoing.

2018-08-24 05:17:40 UTC  

@Asatru Artist - MD you have Woden statue? Make offerings?

2018-08-24 05:18:30 UTC  

My house didn't have a computer till I was 12, so most of my childhood was pretty normal. I had how often my little sister is online though. I'm glad she has sports to tether her to real friends

2018-08-24 05:20:54 UTC  

Cell phones changed alot about the world too. It's very different now. Before when your friend wasn't home you'd just have to drive around and hope you find them.

2018-08-24 05:21:32 UTC  

That was the fun part!

2018-08-24 05:21:45 UTC  

Just go knocking on friends doors until one could come out and play. 😃

2018-08-24 05:22:04 UTC  

Cell phone addiction in youths is a real and common thing. Got a cousin who would classify as a poster child for literal phone addiction, sad.

2018-08-24 05:25:36 UTC  

I wouldn't consider myself a primitivist by any means, but if I eventually hadchildren they would be taught to view technology as a tool rather than an integral part of life.

2018-08-24 05:27:17 UTC  

I'm addicted to hanging out with people who look like me. Am I crazy?

2018-08-24 05:27:35 UTC  

Define "people who look like you"

2018-08-24 05:27:37 UTC  

Yeah, it was fun. Usually able to use looking for friend as excuse to look for girls

2018-08-24 05:27:53 UTC  

Nice try @Ben Rainsford - OH I mean EUROPEAN

2018-08-24 05:28:26 UTC  

Yeah cell phone addiction is real

2018-08-24 05:29:47 UTC  

Phones are bad though, yeah, that 5G is going to fry us.

2018-08-24 05:30:39 UTC  

I just hope exposure to cell phones doesn't become the "turns out smoking is bad" of our era

2018-08-24 05:32:25 UTC  


2018-08-24 05:32:34 UTC  

I just laughed hella loud

2018-08-24 05:42:45 UTC  

There's some data suggesting that might be the case, unfortunately

2018-08-24 05:50:46 UTC  

ive seen iffy stuff about clue about the older tech though.

2018-08-24 05:51:10 UTC  

don't worry, once they get AI working properly, it will take over and enslave us all anyways. 👌🏻

2018-08-24 06:07:15 UTC  

Identity Hominibvs when?
