I have a lot of respect for Gates, even though he built a crap OS and made billions. Look at the work he's doing in India or 3rd world African countries. Giving away so many billions of USD to philanthropic causes (healthcare, sanitation etc). Young people should emulate Gates, not Mark.

    Or did you get offended by my mention of the term 'left'. If one thinks about the economy, he/she is centre-left, and they have my support. But burning down the country, looting shops, ....., for what? A President that they do not like? Misplaced priorities. They have a choice come November.

    One more thing, of all the people who make it to the top tech companies, very few are from poor backgrounds. It's because people who have the means, go to top colleges, pay exorbitant fees and graduate with knowledge and skills. Some of these people have a sense of entitlement built in them, since they got everything they asked from their parents.

    I'd highly recommend not going overboard as you run the risk of missing a lot that is good in every generation. Blanket statements serve no purpose other than being another line in the sand. We have enough lines now...
    Agreed. I was not blaming the whole generation, and if I sound like that, I apologize. There's good and bad in everything, and I know that.

    P.S.: FB and WhatsApp should be banned. If someone doesn't like my views, please feel free to migrate to TikTok.

    Lol. The sense of humor is amazing. You guys are old, and I am slowly getting there. No one wants us or our views. :D

    Every single movie Tarantino makes is great. Forest Gump was very good, and it won the Oscar.

    Well I listened to them in the 90s, but yeah, I was wrong.

    Actually the generation of the 50s, 60s and even 70s are very cool. I talk with some of them (whoever is alive), and their perspective in all things is just amazing. They may not know how to work on a computer, but they can build an almirah with some basic tools and leftover wood. They know everything. They built the post WWII world I live in now, so, yeah, they are brilliant.

    any 90s culture list is crap if it doesn't have Basic Instinct and Office Space.
    There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "My ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."- Isaac Asimov

    Metallica circa 1981 Los Angeles

    I should read further down before... I see GG got the band mistakes better than me as I was sure of Metallica. Obviously GG is quite the musicophile.

    I didn't cross-check, I listed some of the bands I listened to in the 90s. I assumed they were from the 90s. I'm mostly not wrong about music. But, big mistake.

    I think Office Space is a cult film and Basic Instinct's Interesting Plot is entirely overwhelmed by the internet (which itself is the most remarkable development in recent times, and not just for all the Interesting Plot!)
