Kids coming out of college are the prime example of this. Unrealistic expectations and demands. The kids that screamed at state schools in California because their tuition were going to go up, go f*c yourselves..

On weight, the majority of americans that are overweight are a result of their lifestyle choices.. plain and simple.
I think you and NFRS2k are talking about a different stratum of society than dwass and I are talking about, but nonetheless the sense of entitlement is still there, whether it be for healthcare (which some view as a human right) or wealth.

A lot of people lack common sense. I've met people who thought processed food was healthier than homecooked food...and they were being entirely serious. That blew my mind.
