  1. Because somebody who has lived that part of their lives in the 60s, 70s, or 80s couldn’t say mostly the same thing?

    I get it, but it’s not at all unique to be 1990s or any of those. Same shit, different music.

  2. I thought the 80s were the shitty generation. The 90s has Richard Linklater and Nirvana.

  3. Great headline, but I like this one even better:

    The guy at Reuters who wrote that one has to be having a good laugh at the expense of the editor he slipped it past.
