Older generations blame Millennials for “killing off” enclosed malls. I suppose they imagine Millennials havestarted a #MallToo Twitter movement or are personally demolishing malls†.
“Completely uninterested in” is not the same thing as “killing off”. Millennials have committed many atrocities and should be censured for these actions – I agree – but they didn’t kill off the mall any more than they killed off 80s music. In fact, they may bring back the Mall after awhile and claim to have invented it.

Heinz (the ketchup people) got in trouble when a QR code on their label directed a man to a hard-core porn site. Apparently the promotional campaign had ended and the associated domain expired. Meh. It would’ve been funnier had the condiment been mayonnaise.
A friend of mine on Twitter was laughing about an item on Amazon – a 55-gallon drum of personal lubricant – but that’s not what *I* found funny. The funniest part was the “Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed…” section beneath it. Check it out. Just wow. A few of the comments on the (very real) Amazon page are hilarious.
Given the cyclical nature of technological advancements, I feel a new phrase will need coining. We’ve seen the movement between terminal/mainframe to standalone, then back again (this time, called “thin clients”), then back again, then back again (this time, called “the Cloud”).
