I can remember when the '' snowflake generation '' were just being born . The media at the time were in a full blown '' think of the children !!! '' moral panic . pedo's were everywhere , any accident involving a child was headline news with the result that schools started adopting ridiculous activity bans and safety measures . Discipline was tantamount to child abuse . And , just to help matters , people were increasingly targeted by big business to buy all the latest ' stuff ' for their offspring or risk being branded bad parents . Celebrities such as Madonna paraded their sprogs as mini-me's or lifestyle accessories . Add the soaring divorce rate into the mix and it's little wonder many have grow up unable to deal with the uncomfortable realities of life .

Crikey Moses!

The amount that certain people whine and chunter on about so-called liberal 'snowflakes'...

It's like a bleedin' whiteout whichever way you look.

Everyone's a sodding snowflake these days.

For every 'virtue signaller' there're two or three knee-jerk, reactionary blowhards.

I blame the Internet.


And the parents.

When I see (and I have seen) kids and young adults very openly displaying and using really expensive things such as iPhones in public late at night and in decidedly unsafe places I feel pity for such innocence.

I used to go out in the morning and totally disappear with my friends until lunchtime. Then I'd disappear until dinnertime. Ballgames, bike rides, mischief, whatever... as long as my grades were OK they'd let me be.

Today, my parents would probably be arrested by agents of the nanny-state.

Snowflakes have the internet for communicating their opinions

Past generations didnt but i bet they had as many dislikes




Rose coloured glasses does wonders for remembering only the good



Zombie films were aimed at Generation X

If that had any large scale truth to it we'd be back living in caves hunting & gathering by now


The media do a fantastic job in manipulating the ageing generations worst fears

Thank god no generation turned out like the previous one
otherwise we'd be in steep decline as a species.

Every generation should be judged individually not as a whole

True enough - saw a story back awhile that said the average womens handbag contents
on a night out comes in at about 3/4,000 dollars - naive to say the least

Designer sneakers arent something you wear in public if your wise
Someone killed recently for a pair

From Gen Y onwards the marketing machine made each generation Brand Warriors
The big change for mine is technology in the class room often sponsored by corporations

Thats before you even get to sexualisation & gambling

Technology makes it childs play to manipulate the young alas

Are you sure that's contents? Or the bag itself?

Long story but, friend of mine used to be one of the local newsreporters. We were chatting once, I mentioned seeing stories in the local paper about a woman having handbags stolen, estimated total loss on some was over $1,250. Assuming that the bulk of that was from money in the handbag, I said "Who the hell carries that much cash on them?" Friend said that he had made the same observation to a local female law enforcement type from a previous theft of handbag occurrence. Female law enforcer said that the total amount if from both the bag, and the contents, then added that a half way decent hand bag will run north of $750...and this story took place 20 years ago. I can only imagine what one would run these days.

Default I under estimated

Which country or city probably makes a huge difference

A new research by retailer McArthurGlen has revealed that the contents inside a woman's handbags are more expensive than a small car, reaching the staggering value of 3,144.

However, the overall worth of items varies and relies on the price tag of each item. The survey has concluded that while an average woman carts around 512 of stuff, some others can walk out of home carrying 3,144 worth of items.

2015

Most expensive range of handbag contents:

1. Jewellery: 944

2. Tablet: 698

3. Mobile phone: 500

4. E-reader: 499

5. Purse (cash): 200

6. Make up: 150

7. Hairbrush: 51

8. Stationary: 51

9. Diary organiser: 51

Total = 3,144

http://www.independent.co.uk/life-st...-10143601.html

10. Mace
11. Condoms
12. Ecstacy
13. Adrenalin
14. Hit Flask
15. Suture kit
16. Defibrillator
17. Dirty Dancing Video

Is it really so different? Are we not wearing rose coloured glasses?
For instance, tthose that have been to softplay centres, you can throw yourselves around, crash and bash your way through, ball pits (instead of stones) swinging bags, balancing beams and then still get a plate of pizza n chips afterwards.

If the consoles and phones had been around in my youth (early 80's) then we would've lapped them up. I loved Pacman or Asteroids on their own device, so I can't really criticise the yoof for doing the same.

Are we infact, a bit jealous?

Well, I'm certainly jealous. The youth of today are living in a golden time insofar as consumer electronics are concerned.

All I had to play games on as a child was an Atari 2600 (remember those blocky graphics?) and a selection of handheld games. Remember those little handheld football games with the red LEDs for men? All the rage at school at one point. Had a few others too, an offbrand Space Invaders sort of game and a combat game, and a Pac-Man.

A trip to the local videogame arcade was always much anticipated.

Now on the same size of device you can play games we really couldn't even have imagined back then. I'd like to go back to 1981 and present my younger self with a tablet loaded up with some of today's games. I expect my younger self wouldn't leave his room for a month.

We'd play hockey or in the summer baseball in Canada. When we moved to Michigan, it was football and baseball until dark. Before we went to bed though we'd better be done with our homework...or at least devised a good ruse.

.....but then, I don't remember any grade school shootings back then, either....
