Things that you know that kids now will probably never understand - Page 9

Coleco football. The general capacity for being awed by technology. Writing out research papers in longhand; editing with crossouts, margin scribbles, arrows and various improvised symbols; and typing the final draft on paper with a bottle of 'white-out' close at hand. Office flirtation pre-Clarence Thomas.

The value of experience. Kids of any generation can't understand how valuable experience is because they have none. I certainly knew everything there was to know when I was younger. (of course, when they cease to be kids, this will change.)

Definitely. I'm younger than you, and they were still going strong when I was at the right age.

I think this is a reference to young women's affection for shaving their nether regions bald these days. Some young'uns see bush and their eyes widen in horror: "what... is... THAT?!?!?".
