Honestly, these guys seem less technically literate than students of 10
And, the students of ten years ago were less technically gifted than the
those who graduated twenty years ago. It is all part of dumbing down math
and science in schools.
I found out this past weekend. I went to a local electronics shop to
buy some parts for an antenna I'm building. I took along a large
variable capacitor for it as I wanted to get some knobs and, when I took
it out, the sales attendant asked me what it was.
I felt like I had an antique with me.
You did. Gads, man, that's ANALOG technology! NOBODY
uses that anymore. ;-)
