@ThatJenn Anyone who says, "you know what would be cool to do with this? A chart!" is a person after my own heart.
Mad props for using the correct type of chart to display this data.
@Jake Reinhardt That's actually one of the reasons I really went to bat for her in the comments here. EVERYONE deserves decent and affordable/free maternal health care, even slightly obnoxious Guernica writers who aren't saintly poor people and whom I probably wouldn't like at all in real life.
@dotcommie Also, any band formed after the 1960s.
Ah yes, The Who, every Millenial's favorite music band. Come on guys, let's all download their WAVs from Napster and listen to them on our Palm Pilots!
@EvanDeSimone I will confess that despite my jokes I am probably going to pick up this issue of Time. No doubt this purchase is driven by my deep millennial narcissism.
@@fo I think Mike's point is that for the behavioral generalizations being made these generational categories are too broad. Obviously these things exist on a spectrum but it's kind of hard to nail down traits that are native to 33 years olds and 13 year olds with the degree of specificity that Time seems to be grasping for.
"Oh, I've lived in IV. Well, I haven't 'lived in IV' lived in IV, but I know that thing, that, 'Stop eating to get drunker cheaper, pretend to have read anything by David Foster Wallace, date a co-op hippie, now I know how lifesaving Freebirds at 4am is' thing... '"
@polka dots vs stripes Yeah, with the Guardian article I wish they gave more details on what these guys' budgets looked like. For debt-payoff stories generally: Honestly, I'm tired of the "I had $100,000 in debt. But I stopped spending $500/week on clothes and drinks! And my parents pay my rent! So I was able to pay it off in 2 years!" Can we please have "normal" people stories?
