Quoted Vol. 8

"Now, as I've said a million times, Americans have gone soft, and no one does a lick of work until they've first gone through all of high school, a "gap year" (new term for "taking a year to bum around"), four years of college, two more gap years, three years of grad school, and five years of living with the parents in the basement while getting in touch with the inner person. Only then, after this long journey, can the young person, now in his or her mid-30s, finally settle down to a nice, stable existence as a faceless widget in the vast and impersonal capitalist machine."
