Many people no longer have the grit, drive and the determination we had in this once great country (UK)..

It grinds my gears that the UK nation has turned some people into gutless wimps..

I hate to say this and I feel sad about it.... but where has their backbone gone and why has it turned yellow?

We were once a nation of solid rock but now it's more like soft jelly...

It grinds my gears  (laugh)



I think it's the same thing that every old people say in every country... :-D

Don't know that slasher's generation would use any excuse to have a riot and loot the sneaker store.

Can't have people complaining about that social engineering.

That's what all old people have always done, just look at this quote by Socrates, born 469 BC:
Quote
The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show disrespect for elders and love chatter in place of exercise. Children are now tyrants, not the servants of their households. They no longer rise when elders enter the room.

If there's something I've noticed it's that everyone believes that everyone younger than them is an idiot for not having their wisdom, and everyone older than them is an idiot for not moving along with the times.

"Hah, those old people don't know how to use a computer! They're idiots!"
and
"Hah, those young people only ever have their eyes glued to their smartphones! They're idiots!"

You've just got to remember that the more things change, the more they stay the same.  :)

I think I'll go get a T-shirt made:

"Vaccination causes adults."

It grinds my gears, that when a huge controversy pops up out of nowhere, and a bunch of people are suddenly knee-deep in outrage. You sometimes can't find out why because everyone either completely avoids the details of the topic at hand (for example: "I can't believe he did that! I'm never buying Fez 2 from that asshole!"), or there's two sides that both hate each other without explaining the difference between the sides (for example: "Anyone who is pro-gamergate is dead to me!").

To this day, I have no idea what gamergate was about. And when I made a comic about it, asking people. Everyone commented saying that they also didn't know!  (laugh)

I don't find the outrage funny or hard to understand.
Here's John Oliver to explain it for you:

If suggesting via a sarcastic google link that there are ways out there to find out literally anything about any subject you want is "virtue signaling", then I'll take it anytime over posting a single source from, wait for it, no less than knowyourmeme, that highly reputable news site.

Funny thing is you proved my point that the previous poster was too lazy to look for information on his own, and just to get back at dem dumm wimmen you went and did all the work for him. Congratulations! Now you can pat each other on the back and hopefully release some of that testosterone you keep bottled up  :-*

Geez, wasn't talking about you, but the people who are looking for an excuse to complain about the menstruation jam.

Edit: I was replying to Danvzare's original topic. Guess I should have quoted him.

We're not going to be perpetuating Gamergate here in this thread.

In general, let's get back on topic, as loosely defined as it is.
