I do too! Try looking at them when you talk about "recording wax"... as in vinyl for you youngsters.

I have a buddy that is a coach in a Major college footbal program.

Every couple years he sends me a fact sheet about the upcoming group of freshman recruits so he and fellow coaches can relate to them.

Things like they don't know how to write cursive. They can't remember time with out cell phones, They have never bought, played a vinyl record, they have no clue who general westmoreland is, etc.

I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

Matt, that's nothing...ask the average High School graduate today,...

Which came first WWII, or the Vietnam War?

Which country/counties, was the United States fighting in WWII?

On what continent are those countries located?

Who is the current Vice-President of the United States?

Is Peru located in South America, or Europe?

Here's a map, show me Greenland.

The average H.S. graduate today, would fail to answer most of those questions.

Really sad.
