Really, I have to set up all that shit for my grandkids and their friends. Your just a loser living at home and hating the people who put food in your worthless, useless mouth. Go fucking die and make the world a better place.
Not to mention watch them die. That's been the one good thing about the endless wars. It's not older people doing the dying it's young and and .
Every time I read or hear about deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, I have a good laugh, a glass of $1300 cognac and call a friend to let him know some more goobers have bought the farm.
I regularly look at whatever photos I can find of slackers bodies torn apart by IEDs, just for a little comic relief. And yet many of these slackers are teabadgers who vote for and support the very people making money off their death.
Oh PLEASE. You couldn't do brake on a car of someone held a 12-ga shotgun to your head.
You don't know about reality.
You don't even know what real entertainment. Between the idiotic video games, the rap and the angsty-fag pop music you listen to, the reality shows you watch and your generational stupidity in general, it's a wonder the government hasn't put you all in a single place, sprayed you with napalm and just annihilated all of you.

So, why not sieze the moneymaking opportunity and sell electronic devices that boomers CAN operate easily? It was Japan's culture that forced us to deal with a myriad of tiny buttons and lights. Recapture the design flag, USA.
What you don't get is that I don't have to know. That's the reality. The things I do need to know are beyond you. That is natural, I suppose, as is your frustration that the skills you valued are no longer as relevant.
However, the cliched, "you damn kids and your incomprehensible music!" responses are sad from the supposed generation that changed the world.
Because Guitar Hero is a bad simulation of playing a guitar. You'd be better off using the money to get a cheap guitar and spending time learning to play the real thing. Nothing you learn from Guitar Hero has ANY application in the real world.
They're not even that. Most of the ones I've messed with are the same games as from years ago, but with better graphics.
The one thing that computer games bring to the table, I think, are the massive multiplayer ones. Those have the opportunity to really evolve into something interesting over time unlike modern versions of Donkey Kong or Wolfenstein.
People are funny, though. I remember when video games hit the arcades and for some reason a big chunk of humanity would rather mess with Space Invaders rather than something as aesthetic and complex acting as a mid-1970's pinball machine.
Junior, I know what you know. You think Java programming or Oracale DBAing is actually knowing or doing something. It's not.
When you're on a road trip, your car breaks down and you're between Kingman and Flagstaff, and the only tool you have is a bottle opener, that's when the light will come on and you'll say, "Shit, that old fart was right, I'm fucking useless out here."
Because junior, in the dictionary, next to the word useless, there is a photograph of you, with your embarrassed parents in the background.

In 20 years time all the kids will have implants and be sneering at us for not wanting to get the latest iEye and complaining that our use of a "phone" and "screen" makes us boring dinosaurs.
Dude, why do I have to wait for ages when I want to talk to you while you go look for your phone and then answer it and then hold it up to your ear? Why don't you get the implant then you won't be slowing everyone down?
Don't call me junior, gramps. I've been working since I was 15. I've cleaned houses, waited tables, and worked at Taco Bell to pay bills in college. Now after 15 years in my field, I have earned my way through hard work to senior management. If I thought there was a remote chance that I would need to change brakes myself, I would LEARN and ADAPT.
If I want to play a video game after working my 50 hour week, I'm going to do it. That is my reality. Sorry you can't handle it.
I can tell you the moment video games jumped the shark for me. I loved the GTA games up until San Andreas. (No, you racist fuckwits, it's not that the player's character was black). I was playing it and there was a pop up saying that to get better at things in the game, you had to practice them at a gym or a park (riding a bicycle?) in the game. I play video games to escape real life. If I want to practice riding a bike or to lift weights to get stronger, I can ride a bike or go to the gym in real life. It was then that I realized that video games were stealing my time.
