OMG!

I seriously have little hope for Gen Y. In 15 years the average IQ appears to have dropped a solid 10 points.

And right out of college? What the hell is it they *think* they know anyway?

Wow, and to think people jump on my back for getting the name of a band wrong in a music discussion.

I love stereotypes. Really do. There are idiots in every generation, not only Gen Y. We just have more access to the stupidity of this generation thanks to the internet.

And if you really think that Gen Y is so disappointing, maybe you should take a look at who was responsible for educating and raising them. Hmmm. Perhaps being brought up in a household where little Johnny was the center of attention for 18 years and was provided for financially all the way through college by mommy and daddy may have left him feeling a bit entitled. But is that his fault or the fault of his idiotic parents who never made him work for anything? Maybe the fault of the schools/government who allow kids to fail classes but still graduate? I could on and on, but you get the point.

No one can really think that being a college graduate automatically makes a person intelligent, right? Let's be serious. Unless someone is going to a top 10 school, the classes are no more difficult than high school. At least that's been my observation. As long as a person has money and parents willing to bail them out, they don't find the need to be intelligent. It's sad and scary, but unfortunately true.

Thanks for the links to those websites; they're hysterical.

That would be the boomers. No fan of that generation either, and they're still wittering on about how "special" and wonderful their ADD Facebook addicted offspring really are. I've worked with a few really great Y's and tons of useless ones who need constant pandering, can't look you in the eye for a full 5 minute conversation and have trouble with not being promoted within 3 months of finishing training.

Yes, something I noticed too here with undergraduate studies. US education would do well to offer standardized difficult courses (like the IB) and for colleges to accept those in certain grades and combinations in place of years 1 and 2. Would let high schoolers really focus, save money and get rid of all those remedial English classes.
