    Study: Average American Now Complains More In A Week Than People Living Through The Black Plague Did Their Entire Lives

    U.S.—Demonstrating just how bad modern life has gotten, surveys now show that the average American today complains more in a week than people living during the black plague complained throughout their entire 30-year life span.


    “There’s just so much more going wrong now,” said Karen Maxwell, a college student. “Things were just much simpler during the Black Death. All they had to deal with was squalor, starvation, and the constant threat of disease. Nowadays we have microaggressions, student debt, gluten, unequal pay for women, GMOs, problematic things like Scarlett Johansson playing a transgender man. The list just goes on and on. So it’s no wonder we complain more.”

    “It just makes sense,” she added before going back to using her smartphone, a device that would have seemed like dark magic to people living just a hundred years ago.

    Studies backup Maxwell, as there are recorded only a handful of common complaints from the 14th century such as large boils, lack of food, and everyone dying. In the present day, though, there are thousands of things people complain about daily — poor cell service, traffic jams, unripe avocados, obesity, favorite TV shows being canceled — problems no one six hundred years ago had to deal with at all.

    “It’s just a miserable time to live in,” Troy Walker said while eating a burrito in an air conditioned food court, something that would probably confuse and scare a 14th century European. “All the disease back in the 1300s sounds bad, but at least they didn’t have high health care costs from it since they didn’t have health care. And look how we’re being exploited by capitalism.” Walker pointed to his iPhone. “But in plague-ridden Europe, most people had pretty much nothing, so they didn’t have to worry about that.”

    Simple... most Americans are spoiled entitled brats who, if and when a real emergency hits, will likely be gone within a month. Not to be pessimistic, but I suspect a great die off is soon coming. An economic collapse, a breakdown of society, any sort of real war, a food shortage, trucks stopping, lost of signal on their iphones... just about anything will devastate them and send them running for a cliff.
    Thin the horde.

    Or they will pull out a gun and thin the horde after being cut off in traffic.

    And, once, I was on my bike and I did not wait where one guy was sure I was supposed to stop with cars. He was screaming out his car window, and I was, like, not even across and I could hear his voice still coming from somewhere.

    That was years ago. No, I do not still hear the voice.

    True. I am deeply troubled by the Scarlett Johansson thing.
