    I remember my grandson coming over and watching me pull an LP out of it's jacket and trip out over " the huge CD " ,we gave him the album & told him to play it ,he spent 15 minutes looking at the CD tray trying to figure out how that huge CD went inside ,my God did we laugh ,now they laugh at me because I can't do anything on Photoshop while they make obscene pics with pops head on other people's body .

    Unreal.

    Reminds me of the movie Idiocracy..

    Looks like we're heading down that road and that movie ( Idiocracy ) is prophecy of the future!

    On car forums it's common to get the question of how to unlock the door when the remote stops working.

    We have come a long way from the days of John Draper and Joe Engressia and the knowledge of analog phones.

    If you could only find a way to incorporate that phone into an alarm system instead of a keypad. If you could make a cell phone with a dial, your phone would never be stolen.

    Dudes - there are SO MANY THINGS the millenials can do as second nature that's just awkward or weird to us,
    laughing because they don't know dinosaur droppings like LPs and dial phones is just rude.
    hell, so many of them have no use for owning a car!! get your head around THAT one!
    And yeah, I'm in my mid-60s, so I remember "back in the day"

    Why, again, should we expect these kids to know how to use a rotary phone? I probably haven't touched one since before they were born.

    Next thing you know, we'll see an AK thread slagging Millennials for not knowing how to send a telegraph.

    Wonder why
    I’d say because it’s pretty much self evident and really doesn’t take shit for brains to figure out after about 30 seconds of sitting down with it.
    And personally I’d just as soon they didn’t drive and stay away from behind the wheel of a car.
    Lots safer on the roads that way.

    There's a better one: Ask ANY millenial to name 2 Supreme Court Justices. Ask them to tell you what form of Government the US has. Ask them to name their State Senators. Ask them to explain the law of supply and demand. Then stand back and be dumfounded, because most of the will have college degrees.

    Or break a horse in.

    Honestly things evolve. People evolve. People complain who feel left behind.

    There are plenty of things that were commonly used before my time that I wouldn't know how to operate.

    I tire of AK's regular Two Minutes Hate directed at all people 15-37 by those older (mostly boomers - the sociopathic narcissists that cannibalized post-War America) on the basis of our supposed generational ignorance and worthlessness. If there's a silver lining, it's this:

    It won't be long, and we'll get to bury you.
