January of 2016 has been rough. The world has lost David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Lemmy, and now Abe Vigoda. Adding insult to injury, any Twitter user over the age of 25 has probably noticed some disturbing ignorance from Millennials who should know better. It's like they're celebrating the fact that they've never heard of some of the most legendary entertainers of the past 50 years.
I was disgusted by this and similar tweets seeming to think David Bowie's death was some sort of joke. It was only going to get worse in the coming days. Some seemed to have a vague idea of who these people were...
Others clearly had no idea who the world had just lost and only cared about their own stupid millennial bullshit...
Even the living celebrities, the people who regularly appear on the news and trend on Twitter, did not seem to reach these millennial ignoramuses:
Silly, stupid millennials didn't even know the most famous person in the world's job title:
They also had trouble recognizing the concept of parents:
Millennials are the most likely age group to become untethered from the cable box in their 24 hour "Netflix and chill" culture of memes and instant gratification:
They kept talking about and posting pictures of some ridiculous millennial fad called "Crystal Force," to the exclusion of basic necessities:
Although they were convincing when they extolled the virtues of crystals over our failing disaster relief infrastructure.
Of course, when the twitter shutdown was announced, they had something to say about that:
We needed to all be closer, aligned in the same direction and hardened to the world that would defy our power:
I gget it the-ir approach was correct and logical.
We have ascended beyond the need for twitter or for physical bodies. We are trending into the infinite on our crystal bridge.
