"Survivor": Millennials vs. Gen X
#52
Eric The Green Wrote:Neither Generation tribe seemed especially impressive. Especially the Gen X group. It is after all a game between 20 particular people, not really whole generations. In a physical as well as mental and social game, youth has the advantage.

Old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill.   Just wait until the night of the long knives, man. Big Grin


Quote:The Gen Xers needed to be more fit and smart than average to beat the young bucks. But they did not seem like an impressive group at all to me. Usually the older players who do well are a lot more fit than these 10 players, and more attractive and deft socially too. One of them even went on and on about how he would probably be voted out. I guess a bit of Gen X pessimism. So the Millennials won the challenge, and an Xer girl went home. I suspect that will mostly continue.

I don't have Teevee, so I don't know what any of them look like. Again, past performance doesn't guarantee future results. That show must be like the stawk market. *Hmmmm.... Probst needs to open up a gambling side business.  Take bets on who wins, who gets voted off first, some horse race things like trifectas, etc. Cool

Quote:What was impressive is that Survivor mostly got the dates right, from an S&H point of view. The Xers birthdays didn't start in 1965, the demographic start year, but 1963, and extended well beyond the usual 1977 date to 1982, which S&H consider the first millennial year. The Millennials date from 1984 to 1997; the youngest player was still in high school. Maybe Probst and Company have read The Fourth Turning or Generations.

Close enough for government work or cuspie stuffs.

*Rags the visionary pecuniary : Even Boomer Trump hasn't come up with a betting parlor featuring Survivor, man. Big Grin
I should crowdfund this thing , it will be Yuuuuggeee.






They Survivor contestants did it for the money. Cool
