The only thing worse than a clueless Boomer... a Gen Xer who aspires to be a clueless boomer.

I seriously do not understand people whose curiosity circuit seems to have been displaced for a comfortable ignorance module.

I mean, I get the desire to hide yourself from the horrors of the world and escape into fantasy. That pull is strong. Yet this is something different. Willful ignorance married with a certainty that most people are equally incurious.
