Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for September 06, 2015
Bad news, kids. I've decided to ignore economic data and assume the challenges facing your generation are the same as those mine faced. Oh no! Worse, I'm going to assume you want what I wanted! And when you fail to strive for it, I will perceive that as laziness. Nooo! And the bitterest pill of all is that I've mentally characterized my teenage self as simply a more athletic version of my current self, with all the knowledge and biases of my last 35 years. Why?! It's okay. It's not terminal. In fact, you can survive a really long time this way. We'll just have to get through it together. How can we help? When I was your age, we knew how to help.
This kind of nonsensical honesty seems to have been pioneered by Scott Adams.
