Fucking Millennials - Another disappointment

Post by LooseGoose on 2017-09-07, 07:58

They just keep letting us down, again and again.

Michigan State students are drinking less. No, really.

EAST LANSING - Alexea Hankin gets mixed reactions to her decision not to drink alcohol.

Sometimes, it's confusion: How could she not imbibe at Michigan State University, given its long-standing party school reputation?

Sometimes, she's asked to play beer pong, her partner assuming she’ll be more able to sink cups thanks to her sobriety.

“I’m actually not very good,” Hankin admitted.

Others are supportive. Because Hankin, 20, is far from the only MSU student who chooses not to drink.

In fact, there are more every year.

Survey data shows more of today’s students are staying sober than college students were a decade ago.

Back in 2006, only about 23% of MSU students surveyed as part of the National College Health Assessment reported never drinking or not drinking within the previous month. Last year, that number was about 30%.

The average number of drinks consumed the last time students partied is down, too, from about 5 drinks in 2006 to three and a third in 2016, according to the survey.

I hate how I'm classified as a millennial, as I don't fit in with them.

But I'm drinking less...it's called having a fucking kid.

Yeah, I can attest to that.  Not a real big thing to the current students.   Don't know why, and they definitely do, but they just don't do it like we did.  Probably for a ton of reasons.

Lots of reasons. but here is the number 1 reason.

You have to be smart to go to MSU now. 3.6 Gpa, 1200+ on the SAT. College is harder and it doesn't lend itself to partying on a Tuesday night. In our day, if you had a pulse and a check, you were in.

That's definitely a good point. Those cops are all on a power trip.

Hell, back when hubby and I went to MSU our senior year, we were actually carrying water in a solo cup (coming from a party). Cops came, sent me away, and wrote hubby for open intox when it was water and he offered to blow. Cop said said, take the ticket or you're going to jail.

I was on the sidelines yelling. If the cop didn't send me away, I would have gone to jail.

From what I understand they can't even drink in the dorms anymore - it seems they let the cops roam and hand out MIPs.

Back in the day in Snyder we used to round up the one dude who was 21 and then have Bilbo's deliver a slice of pizza, 28 quarts of beer and a free house salad (thanks to their coupon).

We didn't bother with quarts, we took up collections for kegs and carried them up five flights of stairs in Akers. Something like 50 nights straight Jan-Mar '79. Not sure how or why the streak came to an end. Might have had something to do recovering from celebrating the Natty the night before.

This is a better question. I know dozens of marriages, hundreds of kids and a lot of divorces that can be directly traced back.

I've wondered more than a few times if Travis is my son. As for OTPT and Wake, while the math does not work, I still want to believe they're of my seed. The four of us could have a father & sons night of drinking beer, tossing around a football, and enjoy spontaneous outbursts of noogies and Why are you hitting yourself?
Good times.

My parents are cool and all - but they are still boomers. Paying for my time at MSU, that's rich. A parent plus loan and that's about it. I'll be paying my loans back until my balls are as saggy as yours.

Tied down? I guess if your spouse and kids suck you'd probably feel that way.

Do you think your parents resented it? Not trying to be s smart ass but just really wondering your read on that.

wow.  You're pretty fucking angry at people that did nothing to you.

Did anyone happen to save OTPT's post where he said something like, "I wish all boomers were dead"?  Extremely wild statement, whatever it said.

As a guy that had both kids in my 20's, I disagree. I was young enough to play ball with them, coach them from first grade to high school and stay up late enough to wait up when they were teenagers.

A lot of my buddies thought I was nuts. Now, many of them are in their mid 50's with kids between 7-15. In some cases these guys will be in their 60's when their kids get to high school.

I can't even imagine having at teenager right now, let alone a 10 year, at age 54. Instead I have a very cool 2 year old grandson and more likely on the way soon. I threw the football with the little guy over the weekend.

To each their own.

Well, first of all I didn't say your life doesn't change. Marriage doesn't change your life, kids do. Big time. You need to be ready. Thing is OTPT I had my kids at 35 and 38, and I was ready. I've also said on this board I have been bummed out when a friend tells me he just spent 106k on a boat while I just spent 54K on two years of college. Nobody can say there isn't some jealousy or resentment in their life. If that's being self righteous, so be it. I just wanted to get your read on whether you thought your parents felt they were tied down by you. I'm guessing they never had that feeling once in their life. But if you took my legit question as smart ass so be it. I really don't give a fuck when you stop and think about it. Especially cause I know I can out drink you.
