I like how the point of this picture is that, despite the generation differences, we all agree that the 00's still suck.

90's kid here, and even though I still think THE 90'S WERE THE BEST, REPRESENT, 80's were the forefather and are definitely worthy being awesome, too. Even though I never experienced them first-hand, shhhh.

Congratulation on you'r utter failure to get the picture's point in the first place 

The point is that every single generation will hate everything that was made after their time
In fact, the 2000s kids are already hating on the 2010s, and claim that the 2000s were the greatest decade ever

And congratulations on you for completely missing my point of my comment. What I was trying to say is that, despite these different decades bickering to each other, one thing they could all agree on is that 00's and beyond suck.

And by saying that, you debunk what you said earlier, which was pretty much what I just said.

what I basically wanna say is, that the message of this picture is NOT "the 2000s suck"

And what I was saying is that's the general consensuses among older generations.

which itself really just comes from the fact that each generation pretty much hates all that came after their time 
this itself was documented ever since the days of ancient Greece 

also, there's a nice little song about it from way before the baby-boomer days

Here’s the absolutely essential distinction that I think should be made: Rather than saying that one’s childhood was the best (it never is), I think it’s the MEDIA and ENTERTAINMENT that is REALLY being compared.


It’s my personal opinion that the 90’s had the very best children’s television programming. Why? Because all the very best cartoons from every single generation- from the cartoons made by WB, MGM, and Disney in the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s, as well as the very best of Hanna-Barbera from the ’60s and ’70s, to Disney Afternoon, Disney’s Renaissance feature films, Cartoon Network, and Nickelodeon- were ALL on television and/or video tape, available for kids to see very easily.


My childhood sucked. Why? Because I was bullied to no end. I was a total social outcast because I was terrible at social interaction and liked oldies music. But I could go home and escape all that by watching the very best cartoons ever made. THAT’S why I love the ’90s.


And because almost all those cartoons are missing from television (although you often see ‘em trickling out now and then, and most of ‘em are on DVD now), and we see mediocre cartoons taking their place, I think “kids these days” are missing out.

You do realized that all of those shows are now available on-line in one way or another, with the addition of also having some of the best 2000s and 2010s programming available that was not around back then 

Also, as someone who grew up in the 90s, I can say, the current shows are much better
