Actually, Ronn, I know about quite a bit of the things that mentioned. I blame it ont he enormous amount of nostalgia YOUR generation has and its effect on television programs! [img]tongue.gif[/img]

I thought I'd point out a few things..

>Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.

Still not true.

>They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

Also untrue, some people born after 86 have seen the classics

>They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

Oirk, I think.. Makes your statment unture..

>McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.
>They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

I remember McD's comming in Styrofoam.

I can use a typewriter.

And I've still got a TV that has no remote.

just to shoot a few hole's though your sweeping generalisations.

Dude. It's a joke, don't be lame. Of course they are generalisations, of course they are not the one and only absolute truth that applies to everyone. I do not really fall in the category myself (born in 1980) yet I remember most of the things listed. So what - it's a joooooke. For laughing. Humour. Y'know?
