'Powerpoint Parties' Are The Latest Trend—And The Kids Are Not All Right

'Powerpoint Parties' Are The Latest Trend—And The Kids Are Not All Right
Updated 4 months ago

Apparently most of us aren't being invited to the right kind of parties. Among the "cool crowd," there's a new activity dominating social gatherings. 

Michal, a software designer from Seattle, chronicled one such occasion on Twitter:

Among Michal's friends, the parties are called DTL (Drink Talk Learn) and have been a tradition since 2012. 

Another party-goer named Clarisse commented to BuzzFeed news:

DTL's have lived on throughout the years .And have even spread outside Waterloo to be hosted in Toronto, Seattle, San Francisco, Edmonton, and New York.

The tradition has some pretty strict rules:

Michal walked away with first prize for the night. I mean, how could she not?

But not everyone chose to spend their PowerPoint time on Shadow.

Michal told BuzzFeed:

Other fun topics from that night include: ‘Hidden Meanings in Classical Music — Acid Trips, Soviet Defiance, and Jaws’; ‘Transhumanism and the Sublime — A Meditation on Technological Evolutionism’; and ‘Dogs with Jobs — Occupations for the Canine Individual.’ 

Twitter users wish they could have been there:

If you're not "rad" and "hip" like the young crowd, this kind of party might not be for you. But if you're looking for a youthful adventure, break out the Microsoft Office and get to work!
