Get off My Lawn!

Post by goopypants on 2012-09-09, 03:46

was thinking about this well known test to see how old someone is:



(people younger than a certain age have no idea what the relation between the two is)

and thought of this one:



(most folks below a certain age will have -no- idea what that small plastic object is for).

any others?

and no, don't post the 'answers', feel free to torment the young whipper-snappers

not one but TWO obsolete devices in the SAME picture. Inconceivable!

Oh, and the criteria for posting here is you actually have to have owned and/or have used (or at least been near one once) the device or product. So no buggy whips and butter churns.

Cooke, the WTC has so traumatized a good part of the world that I don't think it will be forgotten, even among youngest ones. It's an historical event. Neutral


As for the rest... there are some stuff I don't recognize, but I don't know if it's related to the fact that I'm French. scratch

Here's one I had :

Nostalgia: something people who are on their way out (by that I mean you're over halfway of your life expectancy) hang on to to give themselves a false feeling of importance in this world, a misplaced feeling of youngness and "I'm still cool"-ego and provides a horribly unimpressive counterargument for why they can't use an iphone, windows 7 or facebook.

Lansay is a French enterprise, I'm not sure it's been known outside. Very Happy
