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.

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.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b0ilxD0lIy0

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.

Anyone ever have music stick in their heads nonstop. And I dont mean just like an earworm but literally just over and over random music.

Since my routine (or lack thereof) has been the same for months now, I wonder is this happening because I’m not doing anything of value leading my mind causing it to happen.

Yeah, it happens to me when I’m listening to a lot of music and not doing much that requires a lot of attention.

Why the fuck have things been on a continuous downward spiral after 2015? Why is 2021 also violently combusting every now and then? Is it a sign from some higher power? Is the apocalypse coming? Will Jesus return soon? Any explanation?

I sense something society changing will come soon.

Also I hate unskippable DVD menu cinematic.

I really hope there IS a god or something, and all the bad things that happen to me is his/her ‘plan’, so to speak, or some purpose to my life and where it’s going.

My life actually got much better in 2016 after taking quite the nosedive in 2014. 2020 is when things went bad and the virus was a big factor in that.

I really hope there IS a god or something, and all the bad things that happen to me is his/her ‘plan’, so to speak, or some purpose to my life and where it’s going.

I make my own pantheon and my own purpose. Life is hard.

But if you’re non-religious (like me), you can also say ‘I make my own purpose’ and get on with that.

Right now my feeling is, make life as enjoyable and as comfortable as you can for yourself and help others to achieve that same goal. Whether that’s activism, charity work, or just being a nice person.

I’ve never really understood how people can do this. I don’t think I could ever convince myself of life having a purpose, were I non-religious. I know people do it successfully all the time, but how?

The ultimate purpose of a living organism is to be happy. Most do that by not starving and being alive. Humans are a little complex. Everybody’s looking for something.

That’s an interesting view. I’m not entirely sure what you mean by purpose though. Regardless of what exactly you mean though, why would it be the purpose of a plant or animal to be happy? Aren’t animals the product of a process that selects for survival, not happiness? What gives them this purpose?
