    I'd consider myself a generation (ok, maybe just half a generation) removed from these kids and I'm pretty damn embarrassed by some of the **** I did. Not so much in college, but in high school. I had a friend who lived out in the country and one night we thought it would be hilarious if we all pretended we were beating up our buddy on the side of the road and then see how many times a driver coming past would circle back to see what was going on. So stupid, dangerous, and pretty cruel to the random driver, but I don't think it was some sort of indictment of "kids those days".

    well said.

    Every generation thinks the ones that come after it are no good, out of control, punks, hell bent on bringing down society. It's called getting older. And yes, while there's going to be some bad stuff that happens, it doesn't mean that this generation is any worse than the one that came before it. the world keeps on spinning.

    That's about how I would classify myself. I'm not saying we didn't do stupid and maybe even more stupid stuff. We weren't punching stranger though and we didn't do stuff to people who weren't pretty close friends. TPing on homecoming? Dumb, but we did friends houses and the school, which was tradition. I suppose this stuff has been happening for awhile and I just either didn't realize it or ignored it but some of this is stupid and it seems like younger people (even people my age) just don't really care about other peoples time, money, etc. End my old man rant and get the **** off my lawn whipper snapper.

    Ahh I see. Well, you can continue to believe your own lies and look like an idiot, like you do now. Carry on.

    Honest question and specifically talking about young kids (12 or younger). Do you think they behave differently now than when you were a kid.

    Of course I do. But, that opinion is made by looking back on my 12 year old self with 37 year old eyes. I can't put myself in the same frame of reference, because I'm simply not that person anymore. It's the reason why parents can still get mad at their kids for underage drinking, knowing full well that they did the same thing when they were younger. It's not right or wrong. It just is.

    I guess we disagree then.

    I'm not sure what there is to disagree with. It's completely cyclical. Just look at the past. You can go back through our nation's history and find the same arguments being used to decry the younger generation of the time, whether it be violent youths on motorcycles, drugged out, long haired hippies, initiation rituals of the Crips and Bloods, etc. Our nation's "out of control youth" has been "threatening" to take us down for years and years and years, with their lawlessness, yet they never quite seem to pull off the task.

    I didn't say out of control or that they were going to take down the country. I just think there are a lot more ******* 8 year olds now that don't get/can't be punished.

    I don't think you'll find a lot of real data to back that up. As others have said, our access to reports on incidents of youth violence has drastically improved with the internet and the 24hour news cycle, but youth crime is actually down compared to in the past.

    Again, for about the fourth time, I didn't say anything about crime. Just ********. Of course, maybe i just hate kids, but I don't think that's the case.
