    "OK boomer"
    I don't doubt this will be the deal soon, since baby boomers will always demand on having things fine-tuned to what they feel is their generation's best interest, at the expense of all the generations surrounding them.

    Complete sideline rant, I know

    It really doesn't matter when the elder was born; given modern med tech your generation and every subsequent generation is going to face the fact that gettin' old is hard and now we're not allowed to die and not valued as family to be cared for in old age.
    Boomers are maybe still helping their elders as possible, but many turn away too.

    When you get old, will you prefer to be abandoned, because: boomers?

    Imagine the world pop in say 2050, with whatever number being old and infirm, while the younger first worlders own multiple homes filled with entertaining products.
    Where will you and your kids and their kids put the oldest survivors?
    Maybe times will bring a move to end life when the quality drops below some standard?
    Already there are provisions to end life when the finances of the elder drop below some standard.
    Well funded elders still do OK, since they can pay for whatever med and practical services they need.

    I'm already old.
    And, I wish people would leave me alone

    Anyway, I live where I can walk to everything. Now whether I'll be able to stay here forever, remains to be seen. I guess I can start selling guitars as needed, when that time comes. Or I can do like Clint in "Mule"

    I've been a curmudgeon since around age 10, when I realized that in general people were listening to disco and hippy crap instead of Elvis and Chuck Berry

    Hmmm, of those four musical options I'll take; none of the above!

    I'm even a bit baffled by my own choices but I prefer '90s and later alt rock though not so much the grunge.
    Even 21st C music is better than 60s Rock!
    Anything from the '60s makes me cringe and change the station, and I grew up listening to it.

    Otis Redding/ '60s Soul can hold my interest a bit but '60s pop rock is just old and played out.

    I agree on the extreme, but resistance training is more along the lines of what works with that old adage. Nietzsche wasn't perfect, but who is? I think it is baby with the bathwater to dismiss him.

    agree.. but, the curmudgeon comes from the unfilled expectations you had for total strangers... the fix is in you, yeah?

    More like, I thought society was cooler and smarter than it turned out to be.

    So yeah, I curmudged away from the hippys and disco ducks and never looked back. No "fix" needed :cool:
