    I find this snippet from the article to be extremely depressing....

    "In a 2015 report by the Student Attendance at Collegiate Sporting Events, it was reported that “67% of students agreed watching games is “more comfortable at home.” The study also stated that students favorite parts of the game-day experience were watching the live game action (23%) and the in-stadium atmosphere (17%)."

    In an era when kids grow up hunkered in their parents' basements playing video games rather than being outside playing real games, and aspire to working from home (too often still their parents' basements), this should come as no surprise. Hell, their social lives may not even take the hit nowadays - the same actions that would have rendered them 30 year old virgins a decade or so ago, have been replaced by fapping while on FaceTime (or whatever the ****), and it barely draws scorn.

    Of course these Eloi don't want to put one foot in front of the other, exposing themselves to face-to-face social interaction. What horrors!



    Now, GET OFF MY LAWN!
    Dagummit.
