From what I can gather, the "ok boomer" thing is bad and it's because millennials are immature and pathetic for making fun of boomers online. But when I "Paul Zeise" routinely make fun of millenials its because they are immature and pathetic. And everyone is stupid for not understanding what my point is.

I can't for the life of me understand what Zeise is trying to say in his "gotcha" response.
Consider that it made even less sense before he deleted a few additional impenetrably nonsensical tweets from this thread. Was a real low.

They also seem to glorify Zeise’s apparently crazy driving. Pretty dangerous personality quirk. He is a lunatic.

I thought the "ok boomer" line was coming mostly from Gen Z.

Nope. Boomers seem to think Gen Z are actually Millenials instead of mid 20’s to late 30’s but as with most things boomers have been proven wrong.

Huh?

Generation Z are typically 20-25 years old. Millennials are in the age range you are describing above. Unless I am completely misreading that sentence.

With that said, there are some significant differences even between younger millennials and older millennials...imo. I was born in 1983, so I definitely feel like I have typical characteristics of both Gen X and millennials.

A friend shared this, and I thought it was amusing.

I think boomers use the word millennials to complain about any young person. Not sure they differentiate between millennials and the next generation.

Ah, now this is 100% true. I'm pretty sure "millennials" is used to describe anyone under 35.

This. I was born in 84, my dad is a full on “these lazy millenials.” Boomer. He has now clarified with “except you and your wife.” since I let him know I’m considered a millennial. When he’s on his high horse, I quit trying to correct him because he’s hit the point of old person set in their ways.

Not sports media related, but
WPXI-TV meteorologist Kevin Benson was charged with three counts of driving under the influence and four moving violations after a 911 caller reported an erratic driver on Interstate 79 near the Interstate 70 interchange, according to the criminal complaint.

The incident happened Sept. 20, and police filed charges Oct. 9.

Police said Benson’s blood-alcohol level was .311, according to the complaint. The legal limit to drive in Pennsylvania is .08. Police said lab results showed his blood contained an inactive metabolite found in cocaine.

A state trooper responded at 5:45 p.m. to the area and noted Benson’s blue Ford Taurus crossing into the adjacent lane, following a vehicle too closely and moving at inconsistent speeds, according to the complaint.

During the traffic stop, the trooper wrote, Benson had bloodshot eyes and smelled of alcohol. He said he’d had once glass of wine hours earlier, according to the complaint.

Benson, 60, told police he’d been visiting his wife in the hospital, according to the complaint.

The trooper alleged that Benson would not follow directions to complete a portable breathalyzer test, and he was arrested. In the patrol car and, later, at Washington Hospital for a blood draw, Benson was “acting disrespectful and was uncooperative,” according to the complaint.

I would bet a sizable amount of money the dbags that tweet from the Pensblog accounts are huge "ok boomer" posters. I've seen that stalker madchad in madden's mentions like half a dozen times just saying Ok Boomer.

There will be heavy fines and ARD in the forecast.

THat tweet really isnt worth commenting on, but it shouldn’t come as a shock that Brady’s comment was pretty run of the mill and not inflammatory or whiny.
