    UK youth culture is so:

    - Drink
    - Don't give a poo about much else, apart from football or going out and having a laugh
    - Being anti-intellectual


    should it change? lol. seriously, is there any real rational reason why it should ever change?

    I think you just generalised a tiny bit. Can't be sure though.

    You'll be in one piece until the 5th generation Tories and the football megafans start posting. Then you're dead.

    Don't be stupid. It's far different than it was in the 1920s and it will be far different in the 2090s

    It has changed, and it will continue to do so.

    Am I wrong for being an archetypal follower of the above 2, and a rough accent to get away with being 3?

    Well that is predominantly a proportion of working class youth culture, not exactly every youth in the country.
    I don't think it should change...at the moment it's banter.

    But of course it will change.

    popular culture has always been a bit vulgar. because the average person is a bit thick. so, no, youth culture will not change. it will remain as it always has: drinking, whoring, and belching. make mine a pint.

    No, I'm guessing this is how most young people behave.

    Yes haha. Although you're missing out a large proportion of people in your OP, most youths arent how you described.

    Drinking is part of our national identity. In fact is a big part of the identity of all the nations of Northern Europe, Russia, and North America. It is an integral rite of passage as you grow up, and has been for millenia. That ain't gonna change.

    Males around the world are obsessed with sport, its a need evolved directly from the hunt, and is part of what it is to be a man. Football just happens to be the most popular sport in this country, although a fair chunk of my friends prefer rugby or cricket.

    I don't know anyone who's anti-intellectual. I guess that depends on what kind of groups you mix with.
