Borders are fuzzy. I’ve seen people say the zoomer generation starts as early as 1994 and as late as 2006. Almost an entire generation can fit in the grey zone.

Zoomers are generally accepted to be born from 1995-2010.

Baby Boomers got their moniker from being born in the post-WWII baby boom from 1946-1964.

Generations in the western sense didn’t really exist until the early 20th century. The “Lost Generation” AKA the WWI generation was the first officially named generation.

It’s also an American thing. For example, Armenia has the “Independent Generation” of whom were born after Armenia’s separation from the Soviet Union.

And most other countries have a post-war generation and China has the ‘1980s generation’.

Anyways this isn’t a discussion thread and I suggest we go back on topic before the thread is derailed.

Conversation naturally goes from one thing to another. If we always had to strictly stick to b*tching in this thread, Off Topic would have gotten real boring, real fast. I’d rather it not get any boringer. 😛

I agree that zoomers ruined the word Karen (and I know this firsthand as a zoomer myself). One of my friends is actually named Karen, and the stereotypical description of Karens doesn’t apply to her at all, so as you can imagine, she hates the fact that own her name which has existed for decades, probably centuries, has recently become associated with entitled and racist T***p supporters, which she very much is not.

True. I also suggest we use the word Simp’s original meaning, as in simpleton, or fool.

And judging by your censoring of the word Trump I can tell you absolutely despise that simp!

I HATE having Autism. I can’t even have a conversation with someone without stuttering. I HATE FORGETTING THINGS FUCKING HELL WHY IS LIFE SO HARD, GODDAMNIT.

Also… I hate religious people who shame people that aren’t part of that group for, like, wearing bikinis or shorts.

On a similar note, when I was part of a not-quite-a-cult religious group, I was told about how ‘chastity’ was the peak of human virtue, and so I thought that if you didn’t cover up, you were a lesser type of person. I still struggle with that thought to this day, even after I left. It doesn’t help the current leader is a convicted fraudster.

I EVEN THOUGHT THAT THE 21ST CENTURY WAS THE WORST CENTURY EVER AND IT WAS ALL GETTING WORSE FROM THERE AND THOUGHT THE FUCKING 1700S WERE THE BEST

Back to the main topic: If your religion prohibits something, fine, but the number one rule of religion is DO NOT FORCE YOUR BELIEFS ON PEOPLE WHO AREN’T PART OF YOUR GROUP.

I’m looking at you, Fundamentalist Christians.

I need to get this off my chest.

I failed my Analysis Exam because I accidentally uploaded just the front page and now I have to write this damn thing again and now I’m pissed with myself, but also weirdly amused.

It’s really sad when your childhood idol turns out to be a monster, at worst a you-know-what, or sometimes just a jerk.

Michael Jackson comes to mind, and even though I firmly believe he was innocent, I hate that I can never bring him up in a conversation or listen to his music around my friends since his name is practically synonymous with child molestation and they’ll get “Vietnam flashbacks” or whatever my fellow young whip’rsnap’rs call them. It’s a shame because in terms of influence and legacy he’s right up there with the Beatles, Frank Sinatra and Elvis.

Why do some parents give their 10-year-old children GTA?!?!?

It is scientifically proven you need to be a certain age to play some games. GTA is for 18 year olds and over, NOT 8 year olds.

This is plain INCOMPETENT and just idiotic and parents like this should not be a parent. It’s gross.

These are likely the same parents of talentless underage TikTok stars and angry Minecraft kids.

This is why people should need a license to be a parent. The amount of incompetent parents astounds me.

My family and I finally upgraded to a 4K TV about two months ago, and while we were testing it out, I mentioned Filmmaker Mode and how its purpose is to turn off all the unnecessary filters so that the content looks exactly the way the creators intended (not just movies, but everything that’s not video games). When I turned it on, I was expecting them to start complaining about how iT’S ToO DaRk and all that, but I wasn’t expecting all of them to actually start talking about how Filmmaker Mode is the ONLY unnatural image setting. I tried explaining that it’s called FILMMAKER Mode because it’s supposed to make things look the way the FILMMAKER intended, and…they all looked at me like I was on crack.

I thought about sarcastically saying something like “Oh yEaHhHhHhHhHhH! Christopher Nolan didn’t know what he was doing when he filmed Dunkirk. All the guys who spent countless man hours color grading and calibrating everything down to the finest detail to their preferences in post production didn’t know what they were doing. Only the TV manufacturers are right! The way Dunkirk looked when you saw it in the theater WASN’T THE WAY THE FILMMAKERS INTENDED! THE TV MANUFACTURERS ARE RIGHT, THE FUCKING CREATORS ARE WRONG!!!” I never thought there could possibly be anyone who actually thought that.

And then…I stumbled across THIS pretentious douchebag’s video.

I totally understand that not everyone completely understands or is familiar with Filmmaker Mode yet, since it’s relatively new and they’ve been conditioned to just take their TVs out of the box, set them up, and that’s it, and they’ve gotten used to the overly bright, smoothed out, OT 2004 master-ish look of modern TVs, and 24fps or 30fps might look jarring to them, but this guy…THIS GUY…this guy HAS to be on crack if he’s making a video actively BLAMING THE CONTENT CREATORS and praising the TV manufacturers for getting it right and “fixing” the filmmakers’ perceived “laziness”. As far as I know, shooting actual feature length theatrical films at 60fps is extremely expensive, which is why it rarely ever happens. The filmmakers aren’t lazy - they’re RIGHT. It’s the TV manufacturers who’ve needed to step up their game for about 8 years now and finally are.

I mean, just look at what DrDre, Williarob, Harmy and company are doing right now - they’re spending time, money, and energy they will never get back into color-grading, manipulating, calibrating and perfecting a project that ultimately a few people will ever be able to see. When you watch Despecialized (and really any fan project from this site) on a modern TV in “Standard” mode, all those years of hard work they put into the project goes down the Sarlacc Pit. It’s the equivalent of preparing a high-quality haute cuisine dish, and then someone coming in and pouring ketchup all over it.

Sorry if that came across as SammyClassicSonicFan-ish, I just needed to get that out of my system since nobody else would listen to me.
