    Boomer Support Thread

    Are younguns always running around your cart at WalMart?

    Do they make fun of you when you clear jams in your 1911 at a USPSA match?

    People ignoring your sage advice on ammunition and reloading threads?

    THIS IS THE THREAD FOR YOU!!

    Here you can get advice on all these issues, and more!

    We’ll help you find a replacement pair of White Velcro sneakers like they used to make!!

    We’ll suggest ways to make whippersnappers respect you in discussion threads!!

    We’ll be here when you get up more than 7 times a night to pee!!

    We’ll give you tips to smugly bring key “Tide Pods”, mention student debt and “your generation couldn’t start a lawnmower” catchphrases into any conversation with millennials!!

    We’ll help your 1911 run like a Glock!! (Sorry, we can’t do that one).

    ...ALL THIS AND MORE!!

    Post your question here for immediate support!!

    Our operators are standing by.

    FBM support would be rather classified.

    Missing is a mention that those whippersnappers couldn't actually dial a phone or run a TV without a remote....

    It's virtually impossible to run a modern TV without the remote. First, only a few basic buttons exist on the TV. Second, they're tiny, black, and hidden so you can't see the labels and actually use them. Third, 3/4 of the functions aren't supported by those buttons and must be accessed via the remote.

    True, but as a fellow member of Gen X, surely you at least remember using a TV which did not even have a remote at some point in your childhood. Millenials, on the other hand, may never even have seen such a thing.

    Absolutely. I've even adjusted the color mix, vertical hold, horizontal hold, etc on a few. Sometimes to the detriment of proper operation.

    Or remember a phone number.!
    My daughter left her phone at a friends the other day. She had to log on to Snapchat on her laptop to reach out, because she didn't know the (close) friends phone number. LOL.

    Are you sure? Have you tried adjusting the rabbit ear antennas?

    If that doesn't work smack the side of the wooden cabinet.
