Delivering a dinosaur to the Boston Museum of Science - Arthur Pollock - 1984
This 17-year-old girl beat out 80 male programmers to invent an app so that Twitter will never spoil Game of Thrones ever again (it lets you block out key characters and phrases.)
“Here are some broad descriptions about the generation known as Millennials: They’re narcissistic. They’re lazy. They’re coddled. They’re even a bit delusional.
Those aren’t just unfounded negative stereotypes about 80 million Americans born roughly between 1980 and 2000. They’re backed up by a decade of sociological research. The National Institutes of Health found that for people in their 20s, Narcissistic Personality Disorder is three times as high than the generation that’s 65 or older. In 1992, 80 percent of people under 23 wanted to one day have a job with greater responsibility; ten years later, 60 percent did. Millennials received so many participation trophies growing up that 40 percent of them think they should be promoted every two years – regardless of performance. They’re so hopeful about the future you might think they hadn’t heard of something called the Great Recession.”
Well, they’re right about the “save us all” part, anyway.

Independent living is..
For me, I’d say everyone living with their friends at random rental houses and visiting them randomly, sitting around doing nothing and talking. And it’s a blast!
