Sassy Han appreciation post.
Today in science we learned that you can never gain cold, you can only have an absence of heat; and it made me think that maybe hatred doesn’t exist, and there’s only an absence of love.
this is the realist shit I’ve ever read
17 year Cicada emergence .gif, because I had to see it animate.
You mean the generation that paid three times as much for college to enter a job market with triple the unemployment isn’t interested in purchasing the assets of the generation who just blew an enormous housing bubble and kept it from popping through quantitative easing and out-and-out federal support? Curious.
When comments are better than the article, Atlantic edition (“The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials arent’ buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy”)
Every time someone says we’re a lazy and entitled generation I’m going to show them this
They should be happy most of us haven’t moved to the moon yet
That actually sounds like a good idea at this point
“Just get another job”
Yeah okay I’ll go get one from the job tree, along with everyone else who graduated with my qualifications while more are coming all the time
I’d like to think this means Millennials could bring about the turn away from consumerism that might make our well-being actually sustainable, rather than this ridiculous profligate Economy Uber Alles approach that is running everything into the ground … but I may be too optimistic. (There’s a first for everything.) At least we’d be happier.
BTW – “the quirky eco-conscious individualism that supposedly characterizes this generation” (from the article) – I’ve rarely felt so much aligned with something I’m supposed to belong to. What is this strange feeling …
so i saw this on facebook and i wasn’t sure if it had been posted on here yet, so yeah you should probably read this"!!!ATTENTION PARENTS!!! I read on the internet yesterday that people were noticing that their CapriSun Drinks were filled with mold. Today my sister gives her son a drink and noticed the straw was immediately clogged. She calls me and shows me this horrible 'worm thing', I was disgusted! I cut open the package and right away you can smell that it was rancid. This is outrageous! Apparently Kraft Foods knows of this mess but WON'T recall these drinks! Please avoid purchasing these until they take action on this! I am beyond pissed that this could have been consumed by either my niece or nephews! They better expect an extremely PISSED off Titi, cause they're getting an ear full!"
Oh shit, Snopes says it’s true.
This is all true. I’ve had these before, and I drank one before I went to sleep. When I was laying in bed my throat felt funny, and I started to cough. (Sorry for the details, but.) I felt something slimy in my throat and pulled it out.
Yeah. I was horrified. I thought I’d left my drink out too long, but it was fresh.. Don’t drink these.
I was literally bringing the straw of a CapriSun to my mouth right as I read this… christ crackers n cheese wtf
My lovely followers, please follow this blog immediately!
holy shit tho everyone i knew from high school is having babies now and im still sitting here like “i had a goldfish once”
America is distinctive among advanced industrialized countries in the burden it places on students and their parents for financing higher education. America is also exceptional among comparable countries for the high cost of a college degree, including at public universities…. Total student debt, around $1 trillion, surpassed total credit-card debt last year.
I never get tired of this photo.
Ella Fitzgerald was not allowed to play at Mocambo because of her race. Then, one of Ella’s biggest fans made a telephone call that quite possibly changed the path of her career for good. Here, Ella tells the story of how Marilyn Monroe changed her life:
“I owe Marilyn Monroe a real debt… she personally called the owner of the Mocambo, and told him she wanted me booked immediately, and if he would do it, she would take a front table every night. She told him – and it was true, due to Marilyn’s superstar status – that the press would go wild. The owner said yes, and Marilyn was there, front table, every night. The press went overboard. After that, I never had to play a small jazz club again. She was an unusual woman – a little ahead of her times. And she didn’t know it.”
What they did not want you to ever find out is that your generation, the generation born between 1980-1995, actually outnumbers the Baby Boomers. They knew that if you ever turned your eye towards political reform, you could change the world. They tried to keep you sated on vapid television shows and vapid music. They cut off your education and fed you brain candy. They took away your music and gave you Top Ten pop stations. They cut off your art and replaced it with endless reality shows for you to plug into, hoping you would sit quietly by as they ran the world. We as a society are only as strong as our weakest link. Give ‘em hell, kids.
I’ve never loved a post so much in the history of tumblr
My, isn’t it awkward that you just fuckin recycled a nearly 40 year old article to shit on this latest generation?
But I do want to say:
Of all the images you could have picked, you chose one of a teenage girl taking a selfie.
Because of course, girls who have been taught nothing else by their elders except that their appearance is what matters are the reason we are all lazy and narcissistic.
Fuck off. You fucking made us. You raised me and my sister and my female cousin and millions and millions of girls to be self-conscious and obsessed with making ourselves look pleasing to men. You taught us that that was our only worth. And now you shit on us for it.
FUCK OFF, TIME.
I really hope Time is seeing all of this shit about the cover and article.
Literally the American employment system.
