Millennials Aren't The Worst Generation When Compared To Historical Disciplinary Records, Says This Twitter Thread

It's a tradition that the older generations have to hate on the younger generations for absolutely any reason they can think of. Doesn't matter what for, because it was just "better back in the day," in their logic. 

Self-described "recovering academic" Jenny Bann pulled up some hilariously enlightening historical records of the behavioral problems exhibited by 18th century male students in Scotland. 

Let's just say they're...less than wholesome and make Millennials look angelic in comparison.

movies texting millenials AMC Theaters May Allow Texting During Movies

If you're wondering why a movie theater company would allow people to start doing one of the most annoying things you can do at the movies, just blame millennials. 

That's what AMC CEO Adam Aron did! In an interview with Variety he said the movie theaters would be willing to go as far as allowing texting during the movie to try to appeal to the kids these days. This is his reasoning:

When you tell a 22-year-old to turn off the phone, don’t ruin the movie, they hear please cut off your left arm above the elbow. You can’t tell a 22-year-old to turn off their cellphone. That’s not how they live their life.


He then followed this up with Tweets confirming tests of this concept in very few theaters. 


via @CEOAdam

Predictably, a huge amount of backlash followed. It turns out that not many people want to pay $10-20 to watch a movie in a theater filled with distracting lights. There were also quite a few millennials that found the assumption that they couldn't detach from their phones for two hours insulting.  Aron quickly changed his mind on the matter, ABC reports that he issued a statement in a letter addressed to "AMC Guests" saying, "We have heard loud and clear that this is a concept our audience does not want."

This Texas high school student went to an off campus party dressed as Tupac Shakur, if you can call lazily slathering on black makeup and wearing a Tupac t-shirt a costume. As you can imagine, this caused outrage among fellow students.  While there are some who still support her, a lot of others are calling for some kind of punishment. To be fair, because it went viral on the internet and people on the internet are sometimes terrible, she's now receiving death threats so maybe that's punishment enough.

The latest advancement of artificial intelligence is a teen chatbot made by Microsoft. Her(?) name is Tay and she/it has been launched on Kik, GroupMe and Twitter so far. And like any teen, she has plans to start posting on Snapchat also. According to the website about Tay, she's been created by "by mining relevant public data and by using AI and editorial developed by a staff including improvisational comedians". 

The goal is apparently to continue to learn about people age 18-24 and how they communicate. She's definitely learning, and she's even getting a little saucy with her replies.

But how do you Instagram with it?

Pay phones aren’t extinct quite yet, but this boy has apparently never seen one.

His mom recorded his reaction to the strange contraption, which appears to completely baffle him.

He studies it carefully and asks: “Is this an old fashioned phone?”

Meanwhile the mom must be unfamiliar with mobile technology, considering she recorded the whole thing as a vertical video.
