"Survivor": Millennials vs. Gen X

Despite what Galen thinks the vast, vast majority of Boomers matured out of that phase fairly quickly. My dad is a good example, he was an absolute hell-raiser in his 20s and then matured out of it by the time the 3T started and became a rather restrained blue collar guy who rarely partied and rarely even drank. I didn't even know he used to be a regular pot smoker in his 20s until very recently.

This is why I pointed out that they matured. We all do silly things when we are younger. Heck some still do stupid things when older. I do not think bringing up the boomers past is productive to fixing the future ad I will not judge them for having what looked like a great time. Heck I mean I am jealous in fact. Here I have been, boring millennial that I am studying my arse off and some of them looked like they were having a whale of a time. Life is too short and they lived it up. Good on them. I do not agree to how some took their kids there while getting high etc and not picking up their litter. But other than that I see nothing wrong. Are people to have no fun at all? I do understand the "damn the consequences" point he was making. But that was not the boomers that started that. Heck they did not even start the divorce epidemic. Silents started that. I see that it yes has a negative impact financially for a family but it is not positive to have a family together that is emotionally torn apart and fights constantly. Some may be extremely abusive and if you have children in the mix, well that certainly will mess up the future generation.
