COVID and millennials

Curious re: what will happen to millennials whose entire identities are based on LoVe of TrAveL and eating out. A buddy's girlfriend who is the model example of that is trying to plan a mid-April trip to Europe because 1) "it's sooo cheap" and 2) she is a fucking moron. Perhaps COVID is simply natural selection in disguise

I'm sure COVID will spare all the "I love to travel" insta-thot influencer chicks who finance their travels by letting Saudi and Paki men piss and crap over them. Maybe their Simp "boyfriends" can provide emotional support.

@AndyLouis" This is literally out of the Incel Playbook. Can we please ban this poster?

@WallStreetOasis.com" - Patrick, we can and should tolerate a lot of non PC stuff on this site, but we can not allow Incels. Could you please take this post down and ban this poster?

Stupidity transcends generations. It's a trait of being human, there are those who will always be stupid.

It may stop travel, but it won't stop Instagram posting. Travel addicts take an insane amount of pictures and upload 1-2% when they're abroad. All the others are uploaded when they're back home in their little studio apartment. Trust me, people will make it seems like they're living the high life even when they're sleeping in a bathtub with or without COVID-19

I definitely agree with you, I see a lot of selfies posted in IG as well.

The best part of the boomer vs millennial feud:
-Hippie boomers were the most entitled, arrogant and ungrateful generation, growing up during a period of economic boom, without real life difficulties. They lambasted their parents and the latter's values, claiming they knew better and they'd fix the world's problems.
-decades later, boomers kids, the woke millennials, another ungrateful, spoiled and arrogant generation, lambast boomers for having ''ruined the world''.

If there's one thing they both convinced me is that they both suck. Fellow millennials will get exactly what they deserve from future generations.

This pattern didn't start in the 1960s. I think it's a function that parents want kids to follow their path because it worked for them. Kids want more freedom and to go a different route. Then kids become the parents and their newfound path is now what they want to instill in their kids. Their kids rebel. It's normal.

That is true and it has always been like that. Everyone is a rebel in their youth, that's fine. Hippies never grew up though and millennials in their 30s show the same problem.

I like them in the sense they constantly provide me something to make fun of or an example of what not to do.

That is necessary for pretty much everything.

I get what you mean (I think), but there was that tiny war in Vietnam, the Cold War, the Gulf War, and Korea in the 50s. This generation is the first generation to truly experience the lack of difficulty that you're referring to.

Mar 19, 2020

Korea war: the oldest boomers were like 4, they didn't fight it.
Cold War: unless you acrively followed politics hence got stressed about it, it didn't affect you directly.

Vietnam would be a correct point. 58k deaths + 153k wounded is massive, compare it to coronavirus for instance. The irony is that it's not the hippies the ones who fought it.

Maybe millennial's will wake up and finally see how hollow and shallow things like Instagram are and finally walk away from narcissistic-induced social media addiction?

Mar 19, 2020

Haha, good one. Only cure for this curse is to shun anyone, male or female, who considers "travel" as a top hobby.

It's just going to get more aspirational when you'll have to be loaded/connected to get abroad. These people will get a massive new audience, especially among those stuck in quarantine at home eating rationed noodles.

I'm born at the end of 20th century so I'm part of all this shallow world and I can confirm that there's so much fragility in this generation, it is exhausting. Everyone is complaining about little things that don't touch them or a little. Always complaining about how bad is the world in their Stan Smith/Starbucks/false environnemental concerns /pseudo curiosity about fine arts (they don't know anything, they don't read any books...) starter pack and show their little pathetic and narcissistic life on Instagram... Damn it's killing me, just seeing their pathetic tweets about 1001+ genders / complaints about anything existing in this world in their 120m2/ sat in their psychology university course is really fun but so irritating... I blame this fragility so much

I think if we witness sees the level of trauma and death they're experiencing in Italy here in the U.S., which if it happens is likely before mid-April, they may change their mind. Right now it seems so remote, like a sci fi movie. I think life and death scenarios might change their mind - I mean, right now, it just sounds inconvenient and annoying.
Some of those countries may shut their borders, disallow inbound flights from the U.S. She may go and have to be in quarantine first if she is able to get there.
20% of hospitalized COVID patients are 20-40 y/o. So it's not like you can't end up in the hospital in critical condition just because you're < 80. And if they run out of equipment that's needed to save your life --?
Dunno - posting photos in the midst of people mourning and in fear sounds a bit callous, self-centered, and un-self-aware.

The problem is that due to HIPAA, we have no idea what is going on inside of hospitals.

I think I always subconciously knew that the millennial identity was eating out, traveling, and spending money on things you can post to social media to make it look like you're living a certain lifestyle, but until the OP said I never directly though of it like that lmao.
