We, the Millennials, our generation....are killing the entire entertainment industry! Our parents are shaking their heads in shame.

Millennials are destroying the world, and probably the universe, apparently.

How do you kill paper napkins... do they have a napkin app instead? Wipe their faces on their phone? Don't they still need paper napkins when they go to McDonald's? I doubt McDonald's is switching to cloth. Wait... they're killing McDonald's with their promiscuousness. Somehow. Ah, so by killing a fast food giant they are hurting the paper napkin market. Gotcha.

It's like Baby Boomers think we've hiveminded and decided to not partake in these things.

Not like we need most of them. Golf is usually played by superrich old guys and wastes gallons of water to keep their courses green in places where they shouldn't. We don't drive because we can't afford cars and prefer to carpool, which is why Über is booming (I personally hate driving from an eco-minded and focus perspective). Paper napkins, wasteful. I guess cloth napkins are coming back? What does promiscuity have to do with McDonalds losing business? Is it not being more aware that they're terrible...not just because their food is unhealthy, but because employees tend to have horrible experiences while struggling to pay their loans and bills.

Entertainment Industry? Hack production jobs and blaming the viewers for deciding to put their money elsewhere.

Millennial is such an arbitrary classification. How can someone born in 2000 belong to the same generation as someone born in 1981? Someone born in 1981 had to go through their first 15-20 years of life without browsing the internet daily whilst someone born in 2000 doesn't remember life before facebook, twitter and youtube.

It seems people basically associate millennials with selfies and social network obsession, but I see older people, including middle aged people obsessing over social media as well.

I personally think baby boomers are a pretty interesting generation.

The youngest person in my circle was born in 1995, I think. Someone born in 1997 is 18-19 year olds today. A bit too young still to "ruin everything", I'd say.

Anyway, being born in a certain time period doesn't necessarily make you a member of said generation or movement. I was born in 1990 and I don't understand or am I aware of lots of things people born 1990 and onward like/do.

I found it (http://gothamist.com/2014/08/25/millennials_mcdonalds_lol.php)

By "promiscuity", they refer more to it in brand loyalty than sexual promiscuity, especially in the face of chains with more customizable and sometimes "healthier" menus like Chipotle.

80's-90's kids are Milllenials, oddly enough:

^ This is what teenagers in the 80's and early 90's were like. Look at that 80's mullet hairstyle, the pink shirt, and the old TV.

God, the kids of today don't know how good they have it.

The entertainment industry is just struggling to adjust to new technology. The internet has changed the entertainment landscape - it's not the millennials' fault, it just coincided with their coming of age.

Generations are stupid anyway. No one can agree on when they start and finish.

This guy in my class back in 8th grade got blue colour contacts for a few days. Since he wasn't used to wearing contacts he messed up and thus his eyes were irritated throughout the whole day. He was crying in art class even :lol:

.Depends on who you ask. Most official sources I've seen have the first members born sometime in 1980, but a few have it as past 1983: Not all sources agree though, and someone can be considered a millenial in one while being considered Gen Y (?) in another.

I think 'Millenial' and naming generations is more a US thing. I don't think many other countries do it.

Probably. People don't really have a consensus on what is a generation. I mean, per example, let's say someone asks me how old am I. I say 25 and then they ask "So are you from the 1990 or 1991 generation?". Also, in some countries they consider people born during or after certain conflicts as belonging to a certain generation. In former USSR and Communist countries they probably have a term for people born after the wall fell, per example.

Agreed.
The Baby Boomers were quasi-clearly defined, and we Gen-Xers are those that came after the Boomers...but everything after that is far more nebulous to pin down.

It'd be easier if people just said what they meant: Damn kids, get off my lawn.

Tbh, the first generation name I've heard of was baby-boomer. That term seems to be well known worldwide.

If they too were part of a post-war population increase, then sure!
Being neutral during a war doesn't mean that a country doesn't also suffer during that war, and wouldn't rejoice when it finally ended.

That said, the only data a quick google gave me for such a thing says that Portugal didn't really have an increase in babbies post WWII.

Well, I figure they'd count haha: My parents grew up with 60s and and 70s music after all. They were part of the Beatles, The Doors and Rolling Stones loving generation.

And yes, makes sense it did not since we didn't have many people dying being far from the war.

I wonder how many people might have died, though. I mean, I believe at the time the country was still going through austerity measures, with the 50s being considered the height of fascism in our country. My parents grew up poor as hell and my mom says it was only by the time the mid-60s or so rolled around that wealth began increasing. This was the capital city btw. i can only imagine in remote rural areas. Bet lots died of hunger.

I also heard Baby Boomette before. the kids of the Baby Boomers....so yeah, probably is just a US thing with these terms.

I had heard a Millennial was someone born after the 1980's though I always thought it was defined as people born after the year 2000 which would make more sense.

The way I see it is that we can't blame any one generation for messing up this world. Everyone is at fault in some way and we just have to deal with it.

Everyone is at fault in some way and we just have to deal with it.Yeah, so much this. We're all to blame in some way or another, whether directly or indirectly. Things done by the previous generation could screw something up for the next one. It's like a never ending cycle.
