    As a flower child of the 60s, my POV is that variety is the spice of life and inclusivity is hugely better than exclusivity for everyone.

    Just sayin'

    I'll leave that to the Pro;)^^^ Plus, getting blindsided by water balloons, by a Sucky band, just seems to be backwards from the norm:D

    Well first off, the OP in that thread WASN'T saying "watsa matta with kids today?".

    The question was not loaded with any judgement or condemnation, and was phrased with genuine curiosity.
    Further, the CORRECT answer was also not grumpy old men complaining about kids today, though plenty of incorrect answers were posted.
    It's too bad the actual reason was lost in the barrage of grumpy vs anti-grumpy posts.

    October is Breast Cancer awareness month!

    That is why women of all ages including conservative, are dying their hair pink.

    A few posts noted this and some of us mentioned having lost loved ones to breast cancer.
    But the grumpy posts did indeed miss the mark, and devolve the non grumpy thread into a whole nother animal.

    two things: the young people used 'youth' as a verb? how modern!
    you don't remain silent and you don't conform and you seem to do fine. I don't recall (maybe I missed it) you being pilloried for your opinion.

    This place, like all places, will eventually collapse. I think when codgers talk about the good old days and complain about all the new and young people and their ideas, it is just that they see the decay and the collapsing (in relative comparison) and it is the fear talking.

    I didn't comment in the thread about they dyed hair because, well, people get to do whatever they want, I don't even really process things like hair color or whatever and the reasons for that stuff is probably as varied as there are people....

    But, the subsequent 'scold' thread I have made fun of because, it is ridiculous. This forum was started by a high school kid. He is now, sheesh, 38 years old! Can't we get beyond the stereotypes of old guys and young guys and women (young and old) and just argue and bicker and snipe one human to the other?

    I have some relatives who CONSTANTLY notice racism and sexism (in others) they are from a country other than the US. They also CONSTANTLY say negative things about Germans... and they seem to think that the world is a horrible place because of men. Even the men in their family think that... I find that limiting. but, hey, we pick our prisons!

    There was a thread about me body checking a yuppie gal in the grocery store. And the time I El-Kabonged a drunk with my Peavey T60 guitar.

    What anyone does to their head is their own business. I don't mind.

    Women do not need my approval for anything.

    In the Old Days, we wore our misfortunes with humility.

    Sig worthy, and more.

    True but the ring comes in handy if you need to remove them from the bar for being disrespectful or unruly.

    I applaud your choice of "Kabonger". The T60 is well suited for that particular task.

    The T-60 is a lethal weapon... I think you could kill multiple people in one 'kabong'

    I read thru this thread because I was fascinated that the OP was one of the most grumpy and opinionated I've ever seen, yet it was complaining about grumpiness and other peoples' opinions.

    Grumpy know-it-all teenagers are amusing.

    I remember being like that.

    It makes me cringe a little...
