Holier than thou... the consequences

Millennials are starting to realise the downside of "freak chic"...freak

"And it's not just ear piercing. Many are seeking to reverse the impulsive, perhaps keg-fueled decisions of their not-quite-lost youths. That tongue piercing, that bone through the nose, that conspicuously placed tattoo you got in college may not go over so big now in a job interview, or in the board room. It's time to conform to the real world."

"An estimated 36 percent of Americans have at least one piercing somewhere other than an earlobe. The figure is as high as 56 percent for those between 17 and 25."
A face only a mother could love.

Those piercings and tattoos do not age well when one's hide starts to sag from age.

My Great-Grandfather had a battleship tattooed onto his chest many years ago, and it was virtually unrecognizable by the time he was in his 60s...

Imagine the job opportunities these very special people have - the world is open to them. NOT!

Neo - if I've been able to bring it across, check this one out. Am passing it out to all the offsprings, particularly those who are either identified as millennials (that particular offspring refuses to be identified as such), or have to hire same.

Neo - I think that the commonality with the freakish edge of this gen is that there ARE no parent/s - these creatures appear to be raised by the calculated degenerative influence of "Pop kulchur" (tm)

Like the Columbine kids who go to extremes to get absent parents to give them attention, these creature want everyone's attention because mommy and daddy were non existent or just didn't care about them.

short answer... he doesn't.

this guy is destined for a life on the fringes... subsidised by your tax dollars.
