The Trouble With Speed Bumps, and Lack of Parenting

You know, besides them being incredibly annoying and overused, some speed bumps have designated mph to go over them. If you do not meet this number, and are going over faster, your vehicle will bounce like it’s on a trampoline, and you’ll break your back in the process.

What I don’t get is why these speed restrictions are typically slower than the speed limits on the roads they are placed on.

Take a road marked 25 mph. That is a disgustingly slow speed limit to begin with (which most don’t obey anyway). But if it is a packed residential street, you’ll likely find its littered with speed bumps that are marked 15 mph.

WHY?!?!?!?

They might as well drop the speed limit to 15 then because on the more obnoxious streets, there’s a bump every 50 feet or so, so you speed up just to slow down right away, over and over again.

I understand why they are there, to prevent people from flying by and all that, but what I don’t understand is why the bump speeds aren’t made to match the street mph. That way you can casually ride along at the posted speed, instead of constantly having to adjust.

The only conclusion I can come to is that the wussy, cry-baby residents complained real hard to the town.

But it’s not just any residents…oh no…there are two types of people stupid enough to pull this, and I despise them both.

The first, senior citizens, the really old ones. These people are slowing down, living in a world they can’t keep up with, and about the only thing they can do is pick up a phone and complain, determined to keep their hold on the world they think they own, being oldest and all.

The worse of the two however, are over-protective parents who need to shield their kids from speeding cars.

Here’s an idea, teach your kids to stay the heck out of the road, instead of attempting to bend the world around them, so they don’t grow up to be entitled little shits who think everyone will do anything for them, and thus the kid will never contribute anything beneficial to society, for they’ll be too busy expecting everything to be done for them.

If your kid is too young to be taught this, then either keep them away from roads, or restrain them from going near one when outside. I promise, not playing or running into a road is a pretty easy concept to understand.

The roads around my house are 25-30 mph, and so many times annoying mothers shout at me to slow down. Why? Because their dumb kids are playing where? In the @^%&ing street. And it’s not like these kids don’t have back, front and side yards to play in. Plus, I’m doing the speed limit, so shut up bitch. If your kid’s too stupid to avoid getting hit by slow moving vehicles, that’s not my problem.

We do have moron teenagers who ride quads and dirt bikes at like 80 mph on our road. Does this make me want to call the town to add speed bumps? Heck no! It just makes me look forward to the inevitable moment when a car pulls out of somewhere and these little speedsters plow into them, decimating themselves and forcing their good-for-nothing parents to pay for all damage and suffering they cause to the people they hit.

Anyway, f^&k the world, man, that’s all I’m saying.

Why It Doesn’t Make Sense To Make Fun Of Millennials (Or Really Any Generation Younger Than Your Own)

Millennials are generally considered people who are born roughly between 1981-1996, give or take a few years. And for years, all you hear about is how these folks are like the losers of the universe, dumb, entitled babies and the like. They get trashed on by everyone, typically older folks are the ones doing it obviously. But when I see this, I have got to laugh, for it makes no sense at all.

Cuz here’s the thing, older gens that make fun of them. Millennials are products of YOU raising them in a world YOU created. Seriously. This is why it is so stupid for older gens to make fun of younger ones.

Not to mention, each generation grows up in a completely different world. Think of how your grandparents, parents and yourself grew up. They are 100% different. If you are in your 20’s or older even, your world today is substantially different from when you were a little kid.

And life doesn’t get much easier, in a ever more crowded and complicated world, I feel very bad for kids being born today, for in 20 years, I don’t want to imagine how crappy everything will be. Especially when the supposed millenials take over running the world.

There is a humorous article that tells 50 of the things millennials are made fun. Some of them just make no sense, most of them are really just what happens with the current technology and what not. The world is changing with each generation, especially due to the crazy tech uprising, and I can just conclude that the older people don’t like all the changes so blame it on them young whippersnappers.

The one I hear about most is the participation awards. Everyone deserves an award for everything. I don’t recall any millennial ever begging for a trophy or some kind of reward for just showing up. This had to been an idea that the parents made up. Sure some kids might have been sad that their team didn’t win and they wished they got a trophy, which may have started the idea, but still, it’s not like a bunch of 6 year olds banded together and protested that everyone should get something.

Trends, styles, fads…etc. These have changed yearly, so why is it that it is so surprising and offensive that millennials have them as well? There is always going to be new things people get interested and then drop. All about change…again. People hate differences. It’s literally generational racism.

The point I’m trying to get across is, as people grow up, they create new things, which eventually derail life styles between each generation, and then the older people get ticked for them not going through life exactly as they had. This has been going on forever, and will continue to do so. So the only thing to do is just let it happen, for change is inevitable, so why cause rifts and problems. Because guess what? The generation above you hates your ass too.

Why can’t we all just get along?
