Lost generation of knuckleheads, no electricity, no life. Blame their mommies, and daddies for not making them able to deal with life off the internet, and without participation trophies.

Childhood obesity & diabetes is out of control as kids no long get off their backsides, they are too busy play X-box or some other electronic game.

Most can not ride a bicycle, most don't join SCOTHS, or play sports. We have a generation of couch potatoes.

I still have an old Western Electric rotary phone in use today (out in the shop)....it even works with the advanced telephone network in my office. I like the ringer.


If you tolerate this, then your children will be next.


I have never quoted someone in my signature....but I found such a shallow, idiotic, and inane comment like this worthy!

It’s more a matter of never using or witnessing the use of a dial phone or paper map.

Conversely, the young whippersnappers can make you feel dumb while they tune up the big screen tv and computers.

Not without Spell check. I wouldn't be too sure they'd know what a rotary phone is.
Ever seen a kid try to figure out what to do with a 8 track tape or a 45 and a turn table?
Some can't even read cursive anymore.

That's because it's not taught in school anymore. My daughter can't read or write it. SHe "graduated" in 2015.

Why the hell would they need to? When was the last time you used one?
All I care about is whether they can still get a decent education now that the Left has turned public schools into propaganda mills designed to encourage young folks to believe that there are dozens of genders, that white privilege is an existential crisis, and that d'rat's can save the planet with higher taxes and more stupid regulations.
I saw a video last night of some guy interviewing college kids who were waiting in line to see that communist, Bernie Sanders, speak. He was asking them questions about current events and it was so sad to listen to how mindlessly stupid they came across. If you took the word "like" out of our language, they'd never be able to complete a sentence. It's embarrassing to see.

I got a kick out of her dialing the number and then picking up the receiver.

The other day.

FWIW, we all went to my parents' house for thanksgiving last year. They have a land line. The phone rings around 8pm, my dad answers it. It's the police saying someone at this number has called 911....it took about 3 seconds for him to figure out what was going on, and tells the operator that there's some kids in the basement screwing around. My 9yr old nephew has never seen a landline telephone and didn't think it worked....ironic he happened to dial 911. My sister 'tried' to discipline him, but we were too busy laughing.

Kids born today will never drive a car nor will they understand why anyone would ever want to.


Don't believe everything you think.

She is adorable.

I have witnessed quite a few greatest gens, baby boomers, genXers, etc. that cannot fold a map like it was without do-overs. Who cares, it's a friggin' map, you only use it once it's open.

Thanks for posting. I enjoyed that.
