I will be 30 at the end of the month. This last month I have come to strongly identify with the "30 year old Boomer meme"

30-Year-Old Boomer is a character spread on 4chan mocking older millennials who enjoy things that are considered to be out of touch with younger millennials, particularly in regards to video games. The phrase generally appears in a greentext story based on a snowclone reading "that 30 year old boomer who X," accompanied by a specific Brainlet Wojak variation.

I need to buy a Harley-Davidson cruiser first.

I looked at every single example of that meme and have no clearer idea what it entails than at the start. These kids can't even make a maymay.

My last wisdom teeth started erupting almost to the day I turned 30, so you hopefully experience equally adult activities. Will you get a rain check for the birthday sex?

today is my grandma's 101st birthday. When i called her this morning she had already made pasta fagioli and had rolls baking in the oven. She's one of the most amazing women i've every met. Her line as we were ending the conversation: "I can't wait to get your calls for the next 10 years!".

I love my grandma

Wow, congratulations. 101 is amazing. I really don't know what I would do if you were here for another 60 years.

Having your brain migrated to a computer sounds at once horrifying and amazing. Sadly, I don't know if we'll be at that point in ~2080 at about the time I'd be 100.

Do you think we'd keep our rights?

Crossing the 30 line today!  I think it's less rough when you can realistically keep perspective on & appreciate where you're at in life by this point, and with that being said: I'm grateful that I lost my V-card a little over two years ago, grateful that I was finally able to get the fuck off of night shift back in September after having done it for 8.5 years, and then the cherry on top is that I bought my first new car last month too.  Probably not shit at all compared to most of you guys but they were big achievements for me.

Bad news is that I found out a few weeks ago that the current average life expectancy of high-functioning autistic people is 58, so I'm over halfway through this bitch.

A 2022 Ford Explorer, brand new!  My stepdad has the hookup with a dealer about an hour away, and so I was able to get it for MSRP, which is huge in the current car market.

Does it need premium gas?

Recently, in premium gas:

Thankfully no, it only needs regular.  The only 'Sploders that can make any use of premium are the street performance-oriented ST trim, where the more aggressive factory tune can take advantage of it.  I did find a new gas station on my commute that offers E15(marketed as Regular 88 in a lot of places), though and I filled up with that on Friday.  Saved me 5 cents a gallon over regular at the same place and it's 88 Octane instead of 87 for what extremely little that's worth.

cool, cool

c s b, I've had to literally open the manual on some "but doesn't premium run cleaner/better?" people and show them where it says to put in like 87 (lots of trucks, some cars, from 70s, 80s, 90s, 00s). Really nasty bit of marketing, that. Pay more for the "better" gas that might actually void your warranty, depending.

A long time ago I was going somewhere with my dad, and whatever he was driving at the time had some knocking going on that seemed to be at least temporarily resolved by him putting some 91 or 93 in it, so it may possibly be used as a bandaid until you can get the car looked at.  But yeah, I certainly wouldn't run it just because it's marketed like a more premium product, like a lot of people do.

My Crown Victoria was FlexFuel, and admittedly I had been putting E85 in it for the last two or three years that I had it because it ran noticeably smoother and with better acceleration, at the cost of losing 6 MPG, so there was certainly some sort of factory tune going on when it comes to FlexFuel.  E85 is equivalent to something like a 100-105 Octane.

Cases like that it's fine, but for myself I'd definitely not take it as a permanent solution. Finish the trip and take it to some grizzled sticks mechanic to check out. Some pretty good mechanics out in the sticks sometimes, running their business on a side property. See lots of commercial vehicles parked there.

Why can't I find the video of the bimbo asking for 93 gas because its six years newer than 87?
