‘Spoiled’ Millennial Claims That Life Was Easier For Their Parent’s Generation

His points are valid, but not everyone seems to agree.

A Tumblr user by the name of illogicalliberal has caused an uproar online after posting about the massive differences in opportunity between the younger and older generations. Some say that the numbers do not simply add up, but, in one way or another, the user’s post actually makes sense when it comes to a couple of things.

Case in point, higher student debt, wages that do match inflation, increased rates in houses. And to think, all of these seem to hit the average worker the most. Still, others suggest that everyone is different and has his/her own circumstances in life. They even pinpoint that this is something that can be fought against using hard work and sacrifices.

Here is illogicalliberal’s lengthy post on Tumblr:

And here he begins his argument.

Then he ends it with a huge bang.

Interestingly, many were quick to agree and have even shared their own experiences.

Others, as expected, do not believe that things are as bad as they may seem.

It cannot be denied that illogicalliberal’s points are somewhat valid. For instance, it is true that there is a generation gap in terms of social mobility and economic opportunity. And this may continue to hunt us in the next generations to come depending on the kind of technology there will be.

Still, this so-called “generation blame-game” needs to stop. There are those who believe that this is actually the main reason why division between generations exists.

How about you? What do you think of illogicalliberal’s statements? In any case, be sure to let us know in the comments below!

World’s Oldest Message in a Bottle Has Just Been Found After 132 Years

It was discovered along a beach in West Australia.

A new record has been set for the longest time that a message in a bottle has remained unread. Just recently, a family discovered a 132-year-old message in a bottle while they were taking a walk along a beach in Australia, around 180 kilometers (111 miles) north of Perth.

It was discovered that a German sailor tossed the message in a bottle overboard in the middle of the Indian Ocean on June 12, 1886. Before this, the oldest message in a bottle recorded was 108 years old. It was a capsule that was lost in the North Sea before it was found in Germany.

The family who found the bottle has loaned their discovery to the Western Australian Museum to display for the next two years.

Six Things You Should NEVER Do When Sleeping

These bad sleeping habits can cost you your health – or even your life!

We all have unique evening routines we do before crashing into bed and catching some well-needed rest. Personally, I prefer getting a good shower, slipping into comfortable clothing, drinking a cup of chilled milk, and brushing. Then off I go to la-la land.

Man Shuts Down All Anti-Abortion Arguments With One Simple Question

They definitely did not see that coming.

Abortion continues to be a taboo these days, and it is still considered a very sensitive topic to discuss. It is dividing people from across the world, so to speak. But for anti-abortion activists, “life begins at conception;” hence their disgust towards the idea.

A Twitter user by the name of Patrick Tomlinson – who is actually a known author – has recently gone up against anti-abortion activists. And how did he do this? Well, by asking a single hypothetical question.

His question, as it seems, is based on the line “life begins at conception.” Patrick believes that with all the debate these years, people have not really elicited an honest answer. By posting his question, he managed to prove that the adage is a tad more than an impractical, theoretical response. That this response is something pro-lifers utilize to evade an honest discussion....
