    OK Boomers, we've been called out.

    ‘OK Boomer’ Marks the End of Friendly Generational Relations


    Now it’s war: Gen Z has finally snapped over climate change and financial inequality.
    By Taylor Lorenz

    In a viral audio clip on TikTok, a white-haired man in a baseball cap and polo shirt declares, “The millennials and Generation Z have the Peter Pan syndrome, they don’t ever want to grow up.”
    Thousands of teens have responded through remixed reaction videos and art projects with a simple phrase: “ok boomer.”
    “Ok boomer” has become Generation Z’s endlessly repeated retort to the problem of older people who just don’t get it, a rallying cry for millions of fed up kids. Teenagers use it to reply to cringey YouTube videos, Donald Trump tweets, and basically any person over 30 who says something condescending about young people — and the issues that matter to them.

    halfbacks were invented to stop prop forwards taking over the world.

    Sometimes courage doesnt roar, sometimes it's the little voice at the end of the day, that says " I'll try again tomorrow."

    I don't think you have been called out. I think it is a mindless response from people too unintelligent for rational discussion. On a similar level to saying "I know you are, but what am I?".

    Recently I was cold called to participate in a Morgan Poll to do with the Royal commission into aged care
    Some of the questions included "Do you think old people are a burden on society?", "Will younger generations have to bear the cost to rectify older people's mistakes?", Who should pay for aged care-The person themself- the Govt- their relatives?"
    Im glad I got to put my answers forward (being a boomer), but you can see where non boomer opinion is heading

    They are just jealous. We had the best cars, best music, no mobile phones and a great childhood doing most things outdoors that later generations wouldn't imagine doing. If they didn't have their mobile phones they would be lost.

    You would have to ask who framed the Questions. I guess the answers depend on the age of the participants. I have to say, I think our society has lost it's way a little. When I see young people glueing themselves to roads in the name of protest, well , this World can pass me by, I really don't want much to do with it.

    I'm happy to fudge the entrance requirements. We need all the numbers we can get.

    Funny though, I don't remember any 'boom'. I'm 66. Maybe it's still coming.
