    The funny thing is, it's not like we're settling down and becoming more responsible either. Less marriage, less kids.
    Yes, we are simply a frivolous generation.

    More teenagers are getting pregnant (I think) so i'm shocked
    We live in an era, where teenage pregnancies are on the down - a massive down. There were more teenagers getting knocked up in the 1920s

    Mate, you have got it all wrong. Its the complete opposite.

    There are videos of 6 year olds twerking & daggering on youtube. The west is becoming more amoral, more decadent and more hedonistic - and its starting from an ever younger and younger age.

    When its a common occurrence to see 14 year old girls dressed like this, you know the world is going to chit


    This is hardly the norm..

    Drug use down, young people having less sex than any generation since the 1920s, 20 somethings worshipping a presbyterian, puritanical, teetotal, niggardly, dour, 67yr old water-biscuit of a man. People obsessed with being responsible, with not saying anything to offend anyone, with using the right pro-nouns and buzzwords, with boring, feeble little causes against adverts on the Tube or people's shirt designs. Oh God its all so incredibly tedious and boring. And when you say that being obsessively "responsible" all the time is extraordinarily boring, you'll almost certainly get some excessively boring and "sensible" reply about how much better it is to be responsible. These days kids probably look at Keith Moon driving his Rolls into a swimming pool and thing "oh but imagine all the mouths the money spent on that Rolls Royce could have fed" or "I hope no microbes living in the pool died from all the petrol in it!". Oh God it's all so boring. No rock stars die from crashing planes into their tour bus, no audiences all spit at the band they're seeing, only to be pissed on by the Captain Sensible wearing a tutu, no films are made where the entire cast and crew are on coke. Boring boring boring.

    Young people ought to experience a bit of drug use, a bit of shagging, and a bit living without giving a damn about being "responsible". Because it's the only chance you'll ever get to do it, and it will stop you from becoming some horrible self-satisfied boring humble-paradox c...

    Young people today have to be so much more cautious. My friend's dad took Philosophy at university graduated with no debt and no idea what he wanted to do, had zero experience, had worked little more than his childhood paper round in his entire life and practically moonwalked into a decent job. In his early twenties he'd already purchased a place of his own which was more like 3x his salary than the 10x young people today content with. Is it any wonder young people are more boring when their lives require much more serious thought?

    Even comparing my brother's generation to now is depressing. Kids aged 14 on TSR fretting whether their 8 A*s are enough for medicine, when my brother was that age his foremost concern was what girl he was gonna snog on the school trip and what flavour Panda Pop to have next!

    Great idea. Why don't we all go out and fornicate till we contract a life-threatening STD while developing a cocaine addiction.

    Drugs are illegal and sexual promiscuity is looked down upon for a reason.

    But he made the best music in the world by being the way he was. Many of 20th centuries best writers were also heavy alcoholics. Didn't do them much good, but it did help them create some of the best literature ever.

    He did make great music. Or maybe they were self-medicating with alcohol.
    Pink Floyd wouldn't exist without drugs.

    In really hot weather, clothes like that are comfortable. Teen boys often go shirtless. Don't see the problem.
