The Greatest Generation's 1 Mistake: Their Kids

Thanks, Baby Boomers, you've now blessed the rest of us with two or more generations of your bullshit:
Young people crave boosts to their self-esteem more than sex and money, according to a new study.

Researchers from Ohio State University and Brookhaven National Laboratory in Upton, New York found that college students rated receiving compliments, or doing well on a test, above such pleasurable activities such as sex, receiving a paycheck, seeing a friend, or eating their favorite food.

Brad Bushman, a professor of communication and psychology at Ohio State University, said the findings should raise red flags about the role of self-esteem in society.
Wonderful.

Give 'em all a trophy - for being losers.
