I doubt it..teens are teens..some are lazy, some aren't..
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 2:58:56 AM EST (GMT-5)
No, not at all.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 6:22:42 AM EST (GMT-5)
yeah, probably.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 8:45:58 AM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, hands down. Not ALL other countries, but most.

All teenagers are lazy, but modern America has developed a mindset that walking a mile or waiting an hour for something is unnecessary and a hassle.

I'm lazy.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 1:41:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'd say teens in any first-world country are lazier than those in developing nations.

That being said, no.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 2:40:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
No. I'm not lazy. Well...I'm not lazy when it comes to doing something physical...but yeah, tedium I can't handle...
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 5:20:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Heck yeah !
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Wednesday 4/15/09 - 8:02:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
no

from an American teenager who was too lazy to put more than two characters worth of effort in his response.

America has the highest rate of obesity, no?

In adults.

1/3 adults I see are overweight.

The same is true for maybe 1/20 of those under 18.

No, there are plenty of lazy countries.

I wish I could be productive and happy, but, unfortunately, I'm lazy and depressed.

Dude...teenagers now suck.
I wish my friends still liked to DO stuff.
All we do is sit around...gossip...eat. Watch TV, eat more.
Goodness!

I'm not lazy, so that means not all of us are lazy.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/16/09 - 1:03:31 AM EST (GMT-5)
im not lazy
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/16/09 - 3:30:24 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well of course i thinking f obesity rates but otherwise a lot of emphasis i placed on sport in the US.

"that walking a mile or waiting an hour for something is unnecessary and a hassle."

My mentality.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/16/09 - 9:46:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
Probably not.

I can definitely see our teenagers being lazier than teenagers in countries where children have to work, but I just kind of doubt we're the laziest.

And by the way, not wanting to wait for an hour for something isn't lazy. It's impatient.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Thursday 4/16/09 - 11:14:56 PM EST (GMT-5)
Not at all. Compared to Europe for example, America places a whole lot of emphasis on work. The model teenager is expected to have top grades, play a sport and hold down a job. With each generation teens and adults are pushed to be more active, more involved and more successful.
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/17/09 - 1:28:16 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't know teens in other countries.

Ahem...
13 yrs ago, 1 mos ago - Friday 4/17/09 - 2:25:16 PM EST (GMT-5)
NOt more than the ones from most developed countries. Chinese teens would be lazy too, if they had more money and time to waste

For the most part, my cousins in the US are far less lazy than I am.
