I just got a couple of Cree dimmable 60W equivalents for just under $10 a piece, and this is in NJ. So they're getting cheap. Still not happy with the light quality, but this is for a place that doesn't matter so much (and is replacing some crappy CFLs the previous owner had... one of which is burned out, which of course isn't supposed to happen)

Not likely. The Millennials will become the Boomers. My generation is X, which has been shit upon by every other generation, most particularly including the Boomers, almost since we came into being. So if the Boomers get shit upon by younger generations, they're simply getting back what they dealt out.

(Gen X will not become as the Boomers because the generation is too small; we don't fit their shoes)

But of ALL the crummy things that have come out of post-9/11 security policy, reinforced cockpit doors are not a mistake.

Really? They may have been involved in two airline crashes (this one and Egyptair 990 -- not Helios 522, and there's no evidence on MH370). How many other security measures can boast such a death toll?

It appears the swatting victim here was a white male gamer. I have it on good authority that white male gamers are always the perpetrators and never the victims. Therefore this story is a fabrication of the patriarchy meant to distract from the horrors being inflicted on women and people of color. Like being mentioned on twitter.

What makes you think anything has changed? Teenagers are still going to drive like teenagers (sure, the spoiled brats will be worse, but not the only problems) and they still have more time and motivation to figure out things like this than their parents, even if their parents are tech-savvy.
