I'm getting on a bit, and the thing that depresses me when meeting younger people Watch

    is that so many of them are so stupid, and I just think, why can't I have your young body and be clever inside it for longer, rather than you wasting your young body on your stupid, banal thoughts?

    I don't mean all young people. Fair enough if you're off to study maths at Cambridge and are likely to do well, or you're on track to be a good musician or suttin.

    I mean the young people I meet day to day whose favourite bands are some shitpile bands with 100M views on youtube producing crap that they eat up like sheep, thinking they're unique. Then you find that they did really badly at school, are now studying something soft at the local college and follow lots of these idiot youtubers who talk about things like how pointless school is.

    The icing on the cake is that some of them seem to look at me, the old timer, as some kind of loser just because I'm older and I'm not like the poncey band members they like or something...

    Its their life, not yours. Why do you even care what bands they like? Not everyone has to go to Cambridge and study maths, hell the world would be such a boring place. Just because you disagree with the way they want to live their life, doesn't give you the right to judge them so harshly. To some people, studying is a waste of time. E.g. I regret ever studying law and ever getting a training contract, I quit, and now I want to live my life as an artist. You just sound so ignorant and bitter :<

    I'm sure that one day you WILL see it (When I make it big!) but for now, I'd rather keep it private. Why are you around so many young people anyway? Are you still studying, or?

    Are you ok? Not even asking in a sarcastic "are you mentally ill" way. I'm genuinely concerned.

    why do we have to look at a photo of your back? It's a lovely back, granted, but why did you think your back was of any interest to us?

    I don't THINK I will. I KNOW I will. You must really hate yourself, and your life. What a sad way to live.
