    These same kids can't read a dial clock BTW!


    And more funny:





    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free."

    - Ronald Reagan

    Don't even have to go that far back. My nieces were amazed when they ran across a pay telephone a few years ago. Not even a booth, but a standalone public phone that accepted coins.

    The old Western Electric phone was one of the most reliable devices ever built. It was a recognized paragon of quality manufacturing.

    In thirty or forty years, the kids then won't have a clue how to use smart phones! Their reactions will be the same as these kids!

    I refuse to get a smart phone. I was among the last to have a flip phone. My trusty old Android is falling apart but I'm hanging onto it until it or I die.
