I'm listening to 80's tunes on my ipod and it just occurred to me that the kid they put in my office wasn't alive when most of these songs were released.

  • It's true. Kids born in 1987 are now drinking (legally). Today we have technology that we only saw in movies back in the 80's.

    I mean, look at the "Apple II E" computer we had. Do you think the kids of today could even imagine having to take out and flip the floppy disk every time they wanted to move to a new application.

    We are becoming old men. At least the iPod allows you to say with the curve.

  • While student teaching today, my mentor teacher stated, "And knowing is half the battle," in response to a student's statement. When I chimed in, "G.I. Joe," the students looked at me as if I suddenly grown more weird than usual.

    It's a sad, sad truth that our educational system is simply not enough.

  • It was depressing enough when kids who hadn't been alive when the first Star Wars came out. It's a bitter pill to swallow!
