One of the great advances in communications is the condensation of words.
Not just in English, but everywhere, primarily due to computers and
their quick communications.
Not only can we communicate faster, we can communicate more generically using
shortcuts, emoticons, halfwords and secret language. Ooooooo!
It's no different that any generation when 'young' pipples try to act cool and do naughty things without their 'parents' knowledge.
And it succeeds until you are caught.
Just differently focused.
If the baseball bats have blood stains, or the cat is suddenly missing a tail,
or the daughter takes a long unexplained vacation to a fat farm, you may have problems, but mostly, everyone, young and old is trying to be cool.
Well, let's revise that a bit. Old people finally get tired of the games, so
they say "This is the way I am, deal with it." or even more betterest,
"I'm cool, do what you want, you'll pay the price."
Old peoples' job is to stay young, young peoples' job is to not die.
If you disagree with this, then you've forgotten how to stay young.
Advice, borrow our cat.
