Whoever edited the FML, it sounded better saying how old are ya, not you. It may not be grammatically correct, just sounded better.

You can always tell who the people who actually write letters are on FML because they punctuate.

We should take all the stupid people... And put them all on Mars! (For those of you who don't get this, its supposed to be a Patrick meme)

Personally, i would rather leave the less intelligent of our generation here. This planet is basically trashed anyways. Pollution, radation, lack of food, water and adequite living space. I cannot remember which one but one of jupiter's moons is the closest to earth in density and gravity. We would need to construct an artifical atmosphere but it could be done. We have the technology.

Sorry to break this to you sweetie but by the rate humans are using the resource's on this planet we'll run out before the planet can properly repair itself. Plus there's so much pollution on this planet that it would take hundreds of years to restore the soil to what even close to what it was before we started messing it all up.

161- I wanna thumb your comment up but I'm on an iPhone and it's to big to click the thumbs then the thumb up button. Edit- finally got it.

^ Welcome to the tech era, where things like dependent clauses are considered complete sentences.

You have 10 minutes to calculate the following: 1233532-34556*X = 1576897 X = ? Can't do it? Guess you need a calculator dumbass

Yup, and instead of reading, people watch movies. When conversation comes up about a book there's always that one person who has seen the movie and thinks it's great, but really, movies can't compare! Reading is a completely different experience!! Technology is taking us so far from beauty.

152- I'm talking basic math. Addition and subtraction. 5+5. They are having kids use calculators to figure out the answer instead of actually teaching them.

Doesn't understand the concept of a letter and called you old for it? The education system clearly failed this poor girl you had to encounter.

I bet she was just teasing..... I hope she was just teasing. Someone of working age should be well aware of the concepts of paper and letters

The education system is practically meant to fail everyone. They only teach the kids how to pass tests, and they get their asses handed to them in college.

Haha. I'm starting to understand those old guys who say things like "damn kids!" and "back in MY day..."

I'm glad to see that you agree with yourself. And just because things like that aren't used as much anymore doesn't make them "irrelevant." I still use postage. Guess what for? To pay some of my bills. I think that's a little relevant. Just a smidge.

I do. It's like the difference between using Arial and Comic Sans for a financial report. And no I'm not a stuck up toff, but some of us value the professionalism and a personal touch.

11- actually, a lot of people do. Military families that have somebody at basic or a bare base. Those who are at either rarely have access to the Internet.

Did you really just reply to your own comment? Why don't you suck your own fuck while you're at it?

I think I like your typo better than what you were actually trying to say, #52. Something about "suck your fuck" sounds creative haha.

When I had someone who was in basic training he was stationed in Texas...we wrote letters to each other constantly. Although it is becoming less used, we should all still be aware of how to write a letter.

Reply

Am I the only one who actually uses cursive as their handwriting? It looks a lot nicer than normal print or computer font. It makes me feel fancy =)

Reply

Postage is irrelevant? Please tell me how I'm supposed to send packages (not just a letter) to my family overseas. Through email?

Reply

I agree with you number 12 to an extent. You have to think why kids are like this. It's due to the technology they grow up around. For instance Do you know how to send any think out in morse code? No because it's irrelevant and out dated due to the upgrade in technology. Soon, even though they aren't now, writing letters will be a thing of the past

Reply

As someone who used to work in a post office, I can assure you that posting letters is most certainly NOT going out of fashion. In fact, with the rise in population, I wouldn't be surprised if more letters are sent nowadays than 60-or-so years ago. Also, there are plenty of instances where handwriting is still relevant. Letters, many tests or exams, some businesses require handwritten job application letters, filling out forms, even writing simple things like a to-do list or a quick note/remi

88- I think cursive is great. It's supposed to be faster because your writing flows, but when you only learned cursive for a week in 3rd grade, and you write ugly print faster, you tend not to use it. Just wish I could write cursive :(

Reply

Interesting you say that Mack, because similarly, one's brain also becomes irrelevant when it is unused.

Reply

First off yea that was stupid... But thats the way technology is going... Someday paper will probably be laughed at by future generations

You have no excuse for being a bitch to her. Don't judge. For all you know, she could have a 4.0 GPA. Kids don't appreciate un-technologically supervised things anymore. Get over it.
