I feel those who are lazy these days would have been lazy no matter what time they grew up in, it's just that with technological advancements it's easier to be lazy. Hell I'm lazy as shit, if I'd grown up years ago I'd probably still be lazy, but instead I'd be reading or doing art, or making music; all things which, although I do them anyway, still wouldn't require me doing a lot of movement.

If they are slackers after all, then good for them. No pain, no gain and I'll even prove how much stamina I got by the time the lazy folks do.

Yes, people are getting more lazy in some ways. With social media we don't even need to get up off our butts to talk to people, and kids as young as (or younger than) 5 are tech-literate, so we're losing a lot of personal interaction.

On the other hand we're more tech-savvy than ever, so there's that.

At least I've never had a lot of personal interaction, and I'm tech-literate. No fear of the emerging generation surpassing me. I could handle the little personal interaction living on Mars might require. The only problem I see with moving to Mars is my internet delay would be unbearable.

Simply put, yes. I used used to walk to other peoples houses just to have a conversation, now I just sit at home read Hentai, eat doritos and play video games with racist children.

Whether we like it or not people will become lazier and lazier as technology advances as it makes our lives easier and more automated, the more automated things become the lazier people get because of the fact that the task they need done is getting done with minimal input from the user. The generation after mine terrifies me as they will have zero understanding of actual hard work. I think the economy is going to take a huge hit because of the sheer wave of laziness that will enter the work force.

There are always exceptions to this as some people may just plain out not be lazy.

Dumber, maybe.. Lazier? No. If anything, I think people are putting in more hours of work each week than ever before. Hell, holidays are becoming regular work days for most people.

Some people believe that we have too many hardworking people. People will do anything to survive, and the cutthroat world of secondary educations make me question the notion that humans are getting lazier. I myself am lazy, but a great deal of the peers I know work their ass off.

I'd like to think that I myself work my ass off. I work full-time in production and I go to school part-time on the weekend, I never take time off work as I can't afford to. Before I finished high school I was THE laziest person imaginable.

It's all about finding a balance. Just because there're new technical innovations doesn't mean they're all suited to everyone.

I had a grandmother that still hand washed every article of clothing before she put it in her washing machine. Others including me only hand wash a few delicate things because the delicate cycle on the washing machine is too rough. I had to laugh when I had a nephew. His mother just put all his clothes in the washing machine but when his father did the laundry he hand washed all my nephew's baby clothes because he considered them too delicate for the washing machine. I myself tend to use a broom and mop over my vacuum cleaner most times just because I can't stand the noise the thing makes. I don't always use my mixers in the kitchen either because it's much more hassle dismantled and cleaning the thing than it is washing up a bowl and whisk. I'd already noticed that if I tried to plug in everything in my home at the same time I wouldn't be able to because there isn't enough electrical sockets for that. I don't intend to acquire more stuff that requires the use of electricity. I've gotten more selective.

People just have to learn to choose wisely.
