'Back in my day, we didn't have the internet to communicate. If we wanted to socialize, we went outside to do it. Now, take that MSN off your computer and give me your mobile.'
Old people. Now, don't get me wrong, they have some great stories from the wars and growing up in poverty and rough times, but they seem to get all up in your face about technology and the like. This line up the top there, this is pretty much want happened to a friend of mine that resembles a potato. ((not a couch potato...the actual vegetable)). Its not that teenagers - in general - are completely lethargic and don't leave their computers. Its more that its kind of impossible to find something LEGAL and SAFE to do with a bunch of teenagers that doesn't involve technology of some sort.
What if they live in seperate areas of the city ((or the world, for that matter, oh noes!))? They can't just go out and socialize with their friends without the trusty handy-dandy technology that our generation uses. Medical circumstances have rendered little Matty unable to move from his computer...lets say, that Matty has just come out of surgery and needs to rest up for the next six weeks. What is Matty to do? Socialise via MSN and phone! But lo and behold, all his friends have had their phones taken from them and MSN has been uninstalled!
*cries* Poor matty. Poor potato-man. Poor 'this' generation that have to listen to old folk splutter on about days that are done and gone.
Although, now that I think of it, d'you realize what will happen when *we* are all old folk? We'll all still know rap songs! Old people rapping! OH THE HORROR!
Hip hip hoo!
Hip Hip hoo!
Hip hip REPLACEMENT.
