    It's a start. The big question is what they're going to do when they hit the real world.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    LOL @tecO. I know Dave, reality and theory are often chalk and cheese, but I have been doing a huge amount of research on generational differences and I am cautious but optimistic that there is really a dawn of a new era...I hope so...

    There is always hope... “Now only if we could find it”

    Hope is a word like 'try' - I'll try and do it but.... So I prefer to be more positive and say I will or with hope...say it will happen.

    There is definitely a change out there. I can also see it in my kids and their friends. They have a more positive business type approach to life, turfing out drinks and drugs and bribery and corruption. Nice to see it going on.

    So no more...hope it will happen.....Its a happening.
    The cost of living hasn't affected its popularity.

    Normally I am a positive person but no... I don’t see it in our aria. Drugs, murder are the popular choice here. Opportunity is a myth and for the most part so is hope. Yet again once you hit rock bottom the only way is up so... maybe there is truth here to be-found.

    It would be pretty cool if the normal tec0 turned up around here from time to time then.

    Well despite my outlook on life, I was told by a friend that he heard that the illegal drug industry dropped by 28% in production alone. Now that is a lot less drugs on the streets. If only we can make it a cool 70% or even a full 100% He told me that more and more Teenagers are turning away from drugs out of their own freewill... That is positive in a big way. Perhaps things are changing.
