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?
It is different, I don't think there's any doubt about that.

Example, when I was a kid, pre-teen into mid-teens, friends and I would take our .22s, walk a main road without anyone taking notice, down to the creek about a mile below our house, shoot turtles and what not, crossing someone's land that was not owned by anyone that we were related to, and nobody thought anything of it...not us, not the land owner, not other people. (I should add that the owner of the land did know us, did know we were crossing his land, knew our families from way back, was aware we were doing it, and didn't care as long as we didn't shoot any of his cattle or damage anything.)

Today, we would have the SWAT team called on us, the owner of the land would prosecute us for trespassing, our parents would be prosecuted for child neglect, we would be put into some kind of foster home by the state child welfare people, and be marked for life as criminals. So yes, things have changed.

It was the slipper in my day, or an old worn plimsoll. One teacher even named all her 'weapons', so you knew what you were in for when she'd threaten to use 'him/her' on you.... lol

I get the biggest laugh that the snowflake generation - doesn't like alternate opinions
and has an entitlement to designer goods / wealth -
when I was a kid , if you got bought a ' Matchbox ' or ' Airfix ' model kit , you were happy for over a week while you made it , or if you read a Comic - and so contented
( I remember ' Action ' and ' Battle Picture Weekly ' from Fleetway - wonderful read )
Yet kids now don't have that - and in my opinion , with the internet and mobile phones have lost far more than they have gained - my biggest laugh , still is 2 dating couples more interested in a phone , than the partner in front of them -
I also remember the 3 day week and the power cuts ( candles were essential ) - you also developed a toughness to mishaps that the current generation don't seem to have

I still do this, even yesterday, was damn hot and we spent the day at the beach, driving home early afternoon it was still quite warm and it's not often I use the air con in the car, I like the windows down and have the warm breeze swirl through the car. Look at cars with kids in them and the windows are up, air con running while kids are on iPads or watching DVD's ....... I remember Dads cars .... no air con, vinyl seats, 38 degrees C and a push button AM radio that was maybe working

Snowflakes would melt even hearing we did that

You wouldn't be driving around in a car with no heater where I live.

I too remember all of those big old cars. When I was little Dad had one of those big Pontiacs from the early 70s. The seat belts were just waist straps. That was a kicker of a car.

Something went out of our society when we stopped making cars like that.

Back in the 50's my mother's family took a trip to California, through Death Valley, in the summer, with no AC in the car. The temp had to be pushing 50C. She said my grandfather bought a pan he placed in the middle of the front seat, would buy blocks of ice and place them in the pan, turn on the vents, and let the air blow across the ice. That was their only AC.

Sounds like a lot of spoilt wimps on this thread.
My old man didn't own a car; didn't even have a licence.
We had to walk everywhere.

In my mind, snowflakes also encompass "artists" who pant on someone else's building and then believe they have ownership rights over the "art". The US seems to protect them. https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/ju...gZC?li=BBnbfcL 67 million for graffiti.
