OK. Everyone over thirty is stupid
14 May 2018 | by ghigauSee all my reviews

There is a certain of hubris of youth, but it is based on ignorance, not experience. We all need to learn; sure; but perhaps some modesty is useful along the way. Oysters for the first time. It is not really "gee whiz." After "Cool Hand Luke" I swore I could each five dozen oysters. I could not. Still, it was just the hubris of youth (and I had already eaten a giant bowl of gumbo), not genius, not really interesting.

You don't see waves and surf when you eat an oyster regardless of how much imagination you have. A dozen oysters in five colors from the Saigon River is not imagination. It is real. And it is NOT gee whiz.

This program is going to be a huge bore if I am expected to believe that youth is genius. It is just youth, and eventually genius is possible. The rest of us are not stupid because we have eaten an oyster. Youth is stupid when it thinks they have discovered oysters.

And self-destructive characters are self-destructive, not illuminating. It would be nice if "youth" could recognize that bad choices have consequences. Body piercing does not make a person more interesting. Rather, it shows a shallowness and self-absorption that is the opposite of interesting, like a drunk sailor in his first port of call.
