What is a good response when Millennials say, "OK, Boomer'?

Please Hijack This Thread...

Like I tend to remind millennials at work, “Old age and treachery will beat youth and enthusiasm EVERY time!”

Remember that a lot of us Boomer nerds and geeks are, in fact, the reason the millennials (most of them are our kids, in fact) are even here, much less using the technology our generation invented...

Not sure if you are thinking of The Argue Thread?

The preferred response cannot be printed on this Forum.

As a pre-Boomer, can I also say "OK, Boomer" too? I want to say it to my Boomer wife.

Right now I don't trust anybody over 90.

What seems to be missing in this discussion is that the movement of production to China is the root of the problem. That issue is resolved by returning the production to expanded domestic capacity, which is established through investment and growth of the associated industries at home rather than building walls that can not be climbed by any organization to achieve our objectives and their profit motives. However, we can all excel by turning off the TV and traveling to the far reaches of this vast country and parking in beautiful places to watch spectator sports on a similar TV rather than participating in participant sports and injuring our fragile bones like those Millennials do on a regular basis each year they attempt to model their extreme lifestyle through the world of self promotion with phone pictures. Of course we can not engage in the Boomer lifestyle with clean travel solutions like electric power and efficient clean burning coal due to a need to feel the continuous power that results from the burning of diesel oil, only to be lulled into extreme joy by the rat-ta-tat noise pollution of compression ignition in the early morning hours when the pre-mills are still trying to sleep.

And with those realizations this thread should move forward quickly and effectively to the objective we all know is appropriate for all threads ..... if only we agreed on anything. . Pat

Real time Edit - Well, most of us do really like aluminum - either moving or parked - right?

I winterized by filling all the water lines in the Airstream with gin. Nothing's going to freeze, and I get to make periodic trips out to the Airstream with a bottle of tonic just to make my theory's correct.

You forgot to mention that the worst Ford/Chevy/Toyota/Nissan trucks are the ones that are/aren't diesel/electric, driven by men/women/nb persons, at the speed limit/below the speed limit in the fast lane.



I mean, come on. You gotta try if you want to start a fight!

In a way I too think the BM of our production to China is a great problem but there will have to be a change in the input into the system. I personally like a lot of fiber as an input to keep the production line going smoothly ut brings about instances of just in time delivery though I do believe a small amount of storage time is more ideal in that there needs to be a small amount of production to be in reserve for when conditions are right, but for those who like the BM of our productions to go to China I see the advantages of the as long as it is not in my back yard syndrome, so for those the introduction of what I call the grey diet is most influential in helping storehouse production until the right secondary stream input is introduced to facilitate delivery, but I am now digressing in saying if I were on my computer I could explore this in greater depth but my finger is getting tired of digging into this problem as I type this on my phone, I shal continue this thought when I am able to make it back to my computer, hopefully some day my dear spouse will let me buy a laptop, but that I will discuss at another time.....

Thanks

LMAO this morning, that's funny. Something from Mel Brooks or Monty Python will usually get a positive or confused response from someone. You can proceed from that point.

Voice to text, it's the only way to fly. I'm amazed that this application is so accurate, at least for me. Just be sure to turn off auto-correct or you'll get some really interesting posts.
