100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About

100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About
#41 Phone books and Yellow Pages
#86 Finding books in a card catalog at the library
#96 Libraries as a place to get books rather than a place to use the Internet
#99 A physical dictionary (either or spelling or definitions)


I already marked that list for possible discussion in the humor section of Cites & Insights, without even making it down to #96--which, unless "your kids" won't be born for decades to come, is the silliest thing I've read today. (Unless "your kids" haven't been born yet, #41 is also improbable, at least around these parts...as are a fair number of others. But then, it's Wired we're talking about, so reality rarely plays a part...)

I didn't know what some of that stuff was, and I'm 54!


Hate to break it to Wired but people are still buying vinyl, including today's youth. I know for sure that my children will know how much better music can sound when it isn't coming out of lame laptop speakers. That is for sure.
