And I knew you’d reply with exactly those words. 2-1 to me, I think

How’s the tick tacks going this week? Rare as hens teeth slabs or back to flapping in wind mush?

Still waiting on a explanation of that upright bunny rabbit getting caught behind. Lots to unpack there

Oh, it’s not me and it’s not my photo so I can’t really help you I’m afraid. If you ask me though, he needed to be on a minimal so he could poostance right out ahead of those sections

There’s an embarrassment of swell as per but the wind is sw at the moment. So those slabs aren’t working but others are. Why do you ask? Are you planning a visit? Don’t worry, I’ll be able to find you a junky beach break so you shouldn’t feel too out of your depth

Not to mention Lucky Al's kid, L'il Lucky. He's probably disgusted.

7am, amazing surf by myself in glassy, overhead waves. Only lasted an hour and the rising tide killed it.

Forecast was bad so I didn't bother checking the surf until 6:30am. Would have been out at 5:30am if I'd known.
How’s your parking going Cranked? Do you still pay the old Ibu at Impossibles when she’s there? Or just buy a drink?
I really need to come back over there I think.
Parking is no problem. I still pay the Ibu, though the signs are gone and I'm the only one who does pay.

She's a nice old lady. Her daughter died about 4 years ago and she's bringing up her grandaughter, so...
You are dead to Croissant, paying for something? Okay boomer

I know it isn't the thread but this does beg the question as GSTQ puts it:

If you're a poor Boomer, or a Boomer living in a non Western nation, are you really a Boomer?

Like imagine all the grandparents in the US rust belts and bad inner city bits getting by on Social Security and bringing up their grandchildren right now because drugs or crime got their own children, are they Boomers?

Ooh, hardship Top Trumps! Struggling against life’s headwinds with failing health, little money and less hope or googling conspiracy theories in your childhood bedroom o’erwatched by curling Dawson’s Creek posters and putting your crusty wanksock out for your mum once a fortnight? It’s a tough one alright

I didn’t think it was a pic of you. There’s no way you’d embarrass yourself like that. But couldn’t you have at least found a pic of someone looking remotely competent? Or is that the general standard over there?

Jesus it’s dead in this place lately.

How useful is birthdate to define a group anyway? For instance, a university degree or not is a much better indicator of financial success:

”Pew has shown that millennials with bachelor’s degrees are actually doing quite well financially – to the tune of over US$100,000 household incomes. This number is just below Gen X and above late boomers with a similar education.

Meanwhile, households led by millennials with a high school education are making less than $50,000. So income inequality based on education differences continues to be a major problem, just as it was with previous generations"

And another one:

'While it is true that millennials are much more likely than other generations to live with their parents, 90% of those with a college degree do not."

Unless you don't have a college degree, then you're fcuked.
