Trouble is, they are right:
Just read this and weep for our future.
“David Wise is at the top of his sport. He’s always smiling among his friends and competitors, however, he’s not like the rest of the field. He is mature.
Not to say the rest of the freestyle skiers of halfpipe are not mature, but Wise is mature far beyond his years. At only twenty-three years old, he has a wife, Alexander, who was waiting patiently in the crowd, and together they have a two-year-old daughter waiting for them to return to their home in Reno, Nevada.
At such a young age, Wise has the lifestyle of an adult.”
Well, at 23, he is an adult. He has been an adult for five years. He is old enough to have graduated from college, gotten married, started a family, become a world class skier — all kinds of adult things. Because he is an adult. He also sounds like a great guy….
NBC has memory-holed the report, but I think they unintentionally hit a bit of truth: being 23 years old and living like what used to be a normal adult life is bizarre. He’s supposed to be living in his mother’s basement until he’s 26, wearing onesie pajamas and talking up ObamaCare at the dinner table. During this time he’s also supposed to get a few, odd piercings and tattoos and then run through a series of relationships (gay, straight, mixed, what have you) before getting married (same sex or straight), divorced and then going on disability at 36 in preparation for following his passion on the taxpayer’s dime, now freed from “job lock”. That he’s just a man and taking a man’s part in the world is freakish. And a sad commentary on just how degraded we are.
