    "Ah, those endless forests, and their horror-haunted gloom! For what eternities have I wandered through them, a timid, hunted creature, starting at the least sound, frightened of my own shadow, keyed-up, ever alert and vigilant, ready on the instant to dash away in mad flight for my life. For I was the prey of all manner of fierce life that dwelt in the forest, and it was in ecstasies of fear that I fled before the hunting monsters."

      If I wasn't so sure of my accomplishments in academia and the workforce, I might be insulted by what you are saying. I am sure there are a handful of people who graduated high school between 2000 and 2008, then went to community college, who might feel insulted.

      You are making a hefty generalization, which honestly does not make sense to me. Where is this all coming from?
      Pretty sure he's too stoned to make sense to anyone. Don't take it personally.

        I am always totally baffled when people do not comprehend what I am saying; I trick English the fuck out!

              Because we are the demographic echo of our parents the Baby Boomers

              The Echo Boomers - CBS News

              But yeah, it's a dumb name. Were you thinking of echolocation or Ecco the video game dolphin?

                I think it's probably a lame Establishment attempt to perpetuate their obsolete ideologies into the new century.
