    I have kids age 15 and 16. The stuff they listen to is FULL of 70s and 80s remakes and samples..

    yup.
    for good and bad he skis on the regular with a couple buddies that are a couple years older than him. known em for years, there were no worries, still arent but theyre now 17+ which is like light years from just turned 15, so he is highly influenced by these guys. well, one of em got caught with a vape pen and so i do an executive search of his room and yup, hes got a pen too. tested him next day, comes up fail. we have a chat, stress to him that the weedz can wait for a few more years. bobsplained to him im not mad just disappointed cuz weed had the talk a few times before the incident and he told me he was not vaping.

    he has passed the few tests weve given him recently.
    im pretty sure its because if he failed, ski camp was out, workin for bob at the Compound would be his summer, which id have been good with. my lil buddy has been running the woodchipper and got a couple days on the chainsaw this spring.

    At my favorite dive there is an a-hole who thinks that remake of Sounds of Silence is an opus. He plays it always, and sometimes multiple times. I may kill him

    No shit, can't stand hearing that song. I saw them do it live a couple years ago, then the mosh pit broke out for DWTS, that was fun.

    I spent many weeks, months actually, up on Palmer pounding bumps with all the greats: Nelson Carmichael, Donna Weinbrecht, Moseley, etc., actually thumbed a ride down-mountain from Tina Basich one day who was fucking cool as shit. Bottom line - lots of growing up time and even more weed time for this (at the time) midwestern bumper happened up on that volcano.

    Your Q will be ok. But as a dad I’m also terrified for you.

    Go look at any millennial bashing article, you think the term snowflake indicates a sentiment of equality? Everything is about how much softer this generation is etc etc.

    If I telegraph my true sentiment does it count as breaking balls?

    Again, this is nothing new. The old people are out of touch dinosaurs that dont understand the new direction of the world, the young are inconsiderate, soft and coddled. The Greatest Generation was ridiculed in many prewar op-Eds etc.

    ^^^ Coupland's book wasn't intended to invent a generation, but to illustrate the plight of the twentysomething. Feeling marginalized. Same as it ever was.

    Moses Schallenberger was 17 when he spent the winter of 1844 alone at Donner Lake guarding the wagons of the Stephens party, who had left them in the snow and continued on foot. Patty Reed was 9 I believe when she volunteered to stay behind with her younger brother who was too small to walk out through the snow with his mother when one of the relief party's came to rescue the Donner Party. Kids were tougher back then.

    You might want to check your math.

    Officially the oldest Boomer was born in 1946. They would be 72. Ended in 1955 so do the math.

    Yeah but it probably should be about '54 or so. People born '45-'55 (or about) became adults in the '60's, and those of us born after grew up in the '70. Very different generations. We already thought the '60's kids were weird in the '70's. And a lot of their music already seemed ancient. Peter, Paul and Mary? Simon and Garfunkel? gtfo. The Beatles were long gone, so were the Doors. Sure some acts like the Who and Dylan and the Stones carried through but who the fuck was the Kingston Trio?

    We were Skynyrd and Talking Heads and the Ramones and the Clash and a shit ton more.

    Us '70's kids get ignored, there's not even a name for us, but we're cool with it because that's how we always rolled, and we pretty much kicked ass. Fuck a bunch of boomers and everyone else.

    Um, when did "vaping" become synonomous with smoking weed?

    I have been under the impression that vaping = smoking scented fake tobacco from those annoying pens and things that look like Star Trek communicators....

    Everybody I know that smokes weed, actually, you know, smokes weed. They don't vape.

    What the f%^k happened to bongs and joints?

    This is correct.

    This is incorrect. The first rule about weed vape club is you do not discuss weed vape club. But if you insist, check out the what are you baking/vaping thread.

    Around here you can go to the store and buy a cartridge of your favorite. A pen is was easier than dealing with a pipe all the time
    I have a responsibility to not be intimidated and bullied by low life losers who abuse what little power is granted to them as ski patrollers.

    Disco, fucking disco man, that shit almost ruined my adolescence.
