    Thankfully, there are exceptions to this meme. I'm working with a young man who is the son of an exotic dancer, and never knew his father. Bounced from foster home to foster home and abused, he became a drug addict and an alcoholic, until one day he came out of his self pity with the realization his destiny was his own to discover. Still under 30 years of age, he's a personal improvement inspirational speaker, with several business he's created.

    I met this young man when he had been observing some of my science-related posts on Facebook, and contacted me about how to achieve his biggest ambition, asteroid mining (nothing like thinking big). I suggested he might have to work his way up to that, and spelled out some projects in mining and space related activities that could get him started. Some of those are just beginning. Who knows? I may be working with the next Elon Musk.

    No offense meant to anyone who has been sharing memes I have to admit, the Biden ones never fail to crack me up. It just seems like that's the bulk of what I see being passed around (Edit: On social media I mean) for "the other side"s to feast upon & rip to shreds (as if "proving" you wrong by default makes me right) polar extreme skin-deep assumptions from both sides fueling more rage, more trigger-pulling, and more tension building. Triggering dismissals of views triggering dismissals of views in a vicious cycle that grows as it feeds into a chaotic fiery dragon of chaos. The only way I can see to slay it is to try to find & share words that cut more deeply to what's left of the heart.

      No offense taken. My intent is sudden explosive laughter, for the gulch primarily, which is healing, instead of building rage from within...once you laugh, grin or smile...all that rage, anger, disappointment is gone.

    I have a solution to kill the dragon: Implant me with the Elon Musk's brain chip with a connection to a holoprojector or some energy transfer device then hook it up to power grid, I give the "Monster from the ID" (courtesy of "The Forbidden Planet").

    I see nothing wrong with this meme. If anything it understates the problem of snowflake-ism. Laughing at those people is the only thing that will deter others from joining them.

    Everyone needs to be responsible for their actions. But alas, it’s always someone elses fault . A single mom whose Relationship had not first been sorted out and solidified into a stable and well ordered home.

      No blame does any good. I dare say not even at yourself. It was the "new normal" we were born into and nobody succeeds without failures, though that is certainly NOT to say that introspection isn't desperately needed to mend and not break.

      Sincerely,

        You could see it coming with sports as an example. No winners and everyone gets a participation trophy.

          What do you think? That "Share to the (Imgur) Community" button is giving me a funny look. Should I poke the dragon? LOL

            I have always been a dragon poker.
            Mama always told me not to look into the eye's of the sun
            But mama, that's where the fun is
            Some brimstone baritone anticyclone rolling stone preacher from the east
            Says, "Dethrone the dictaphone, hit it in it's funny bone,
            that's where they expect it least"
