Today, we have hoardes of "eternal adolescents" who are essentially 25 or 30 year-old teenagers who think they're the nucleus of their own little universe.
I'm only 23, well, 23 on Monday, and I agree with you 100%. I have too many deadbeat friends from high school.

Kettering didn't have many deadbeats because they get weeded out so early. If you don't go to college and are not working a full time job, you get to serve.
