    You were lucky. Back in my day we din't even have a board. We used an old stone. Half inched from the graveyard.

    Honestly young ones today.

These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Agree, let's time warp back to the late 1970's and see how todays millenials would cope with the rather poor economy and infrastructure situation of the time. We didn't even have the bank of mum and dad The music of the time was good though

    Their parents would have to start parenting them.

    Shame the parents didn't bother raising the kids properly.

    Last week I was commenting on the new student blocks of flats that spring up everywhere followed by numerous take-away outlets to feed the students. In my day it was a damp old bed-sit and a can of baked-beans. To find my first job, I walked the towns and knocked on the doors of businesses with success.

    This was better than my father who as a kid in the 1920-30s did not have shoes until he was 12 years old when he started work.
    Brexiteers remind me of religious fanatics, only faith, no facts.

    Is monoploy anything like scrablle?
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    And there it is. I don't normally join in in the millennial bashing - it's typically just another hard-of-thinking gammon theme.

    But... I was chatting to a contractor colleague whose daughter has just started uni. She absolutely had to have an en suite bathroom, and had never caught a bus before. He did accept that he may share some blame.

    Totally. As an undergraduate I used a bedsit that wouldn't have been out of place in Trainspotting.

    I recall my lesbian roommate inviting me round to her room for a cuppa. The walls were covered with posters of breasts she admired. She asked me what I prefer. That was an interesting evening.

    It's no use, you'd win hands down because that's how a typical millennial would spell "millennial" and "monopoly"

    Mind you, the twitterer you quoted does have a good point, because most millennials are fecked job-wise and house-wise etc.
