    Were you the first to discover vinyl/reel to reel tape? Nope, but my first Saturday job was in the record department of a shop where we had the top 30 singles and top 30 albums as records or cassettes.

    love/hate relationship with social media? Nope, frustrated by the way it has dumbed down so many people, who will believe anything they are told, then share it, yet get very upset when you point out they fell for a lie.

    hard time finding work? Nope, The Wife (tm) always has work for me to do
    Refuse to buy diamonds? Nope, at the last count The Wife (tm) has 84 diamonds on her fingers/wrists that I've bought her.

    Hate talking on the phone? Not as bad now that you don't have to sit on a stool under the stairs with a cord on the handset that let you move about 6" from the seat.

    Believe there is no reward for loyalty anymore? BA Gold, Marriott platinum, Starwoods Gold, etc

    Will opt to never have children? The Wife (tm) and I based our relationship on this (and a love of garlic)

    Want a place to live after working 60 hours a week? Invoicing 60 hours a week, maybe. Working them? Nope

    Love brunch & avocado toast? Nope, scrambled eggs and bacon please with HP sauce

    Poor but on trend? Nope and nope (what is "on trend"?)

    Do you constantly seek approval from others? Apart from The Wife (tm), who also provides direction and control

    Don't have any work ethic? Yes, work is an unnecessary evil

    Don't have much concentration? Sorry, the goldfinches were fighting on the niger seed feeder, what did you say?

    Love gin and microbrewery beers? Yes, in the sense that I support my local pub, which has been brewing beer for 30 years and I'm not a fan of fizzy lager.

    The main reason I'd refuse to buy diamonds (besides not having the spare cash) is that in twenty years it will probably be possible to churn out flawless diamonds the size of gulls eggs anyway, for PC heat sinks among other things.

    So as a long-term investment, diamonds, and jewellery generally, are probably pretty useless.

    (P.S. I just checked that spelling of "jewellery", because it didn't look quite right, and it turns out Septics spell it "jewelry" )
    Thats pretty irrelevant the diamond market is kept afloat artificially by De Boers or was until recently.

    There isn't a good definition. We looked once and apparently they just decided to remove one of the generations, as well.

    It's pretty stupid to say millennials are more stupid than us just because they express themselves differently. Our parents were just the same, as were theirs, in despairing at the younger generation(s). Idiots with long hair listening to rock'n'roll that all sounded the same...

    Yeah but you are a selfish bastard.
