We’ve Lost It

Older generations often lament the loss of fire and creativity in the bellies of today’s youth. “In my time…”, they’d say, and finish off the sentence with evidence of their generation’s toughness, grit, and ingeniousness under pressure. The youth regularly waves this off as “baloney” but sometimes, you’re faced with such overwhelming evidence that it’s hard to reject their claims.

Nobody I know does anything like this.

Yes, that’s a lion in a sidecar being ridden along a Wall of Death (from Martin Klasch’s site).

I hope our collective generation can learn a lesson from all of this.
