I admit, that first one is an insult.The other's are borderline insults, but not quite. However, I think that you brought it upon yourself. If you would explain why you so strongly disbelieve the listed scenario's and why you are defensive of "your generation", it may very well save you a few more insults. Then again, it could bring on more.

But it would be nice to know why we are insulting you.

No, my inference was that a good beating, or 20, might do you some good....

Why explain? If you are really interested, I will explain. However, considering past threads, explanations and elaborations are generally ignored in favor of simply writing the person off for one reason or another.

Why are you such a nasty person? I am really curious what I have done to make you so bitter towards me. When I first came on here we started to have intelligent debates. I would even give you rep points for actually debating. Then, for no reason, you started insulting me and my intelligence.

I am done with this thread, as there is nothing more infuriating than someone who disregards entire posts. You are acting like a 6 year old.

EDIT: Told you Cass...it is totally pointless : P

Okay, this started as a light-hearted thread reminiscing about days gone by.
I am giving it a total of one post past mine to get back on topic and stop the bickering, or it gets locked.

I am interested. Trust me, there are too many mindless fights in my middle school that could easily be avoided by clarification.

And to get the thread back on topic, I may not be as old as some of you, but I do remember when gas was aound $1.90 in the early ninties...I think.

It doesn't sound like it IS "fine." Is it vital to your existence to try to convert people of opposing viewpoints to your own? It's very noble of you to defend the world in which you live, but it does happen to be the world "we live in."

I think every era had/has something good about it, something redeeming. Why take it that personally if someone else thinks "the good ol' days" were better?
