Lol... I remember playing that game where you saw a page number on the bottom of a dictionary page and followed that clue to another page with another number and so on until you ended up at a picture of a penis or some other sexual word circled... But yea... now I just use my phone to look up something... wireless internet is the best.

Agreed. Especially if they can't find a definition online. Where even non-existnt words have them. PS: Paperback dictionaries bring back memories =) Most of them involving weird smells when you flipped a page.

Exactly Danny! The whole page turning sound is exactly the reason I don't support e-books. Plus, the smell of the pages has this allure to it too. I effin love books and that's the reason I boycotted the Kindle. One, so we don't make remarks like the kid in the FML and two, so we always have libraries. Imagine what the heckity-heck would happen to the libraries?! It's like that scene from Wall-e. Where that guy can't get over that he has to manually open a book and turn the page. *sigh*

I'm 19 too and I remember when I was that age, we were told to bring pocket dictionaries to school for looking up words. Some kids had these little electronic dictionary things that were only used for looking up words, and I remember thinking that THOSE were high tech and took away the meaning of dictionaries. Now those things are obsolete compared to all the technology today.

I love my Kindle. It's great for travelling or when I don't have both hands free. It hasn't stopped me buying books. I love the feel, smell, and sound of books. OP, get used to it. In the kid's mind, your day is over in much the way you probably think a 30-year old's day is over.

I usually got the "I just wasted your time" or something equally stupid. OP, you're seriously offended by what a middle schoolers said? Most are whiny brats. Get over it. Also, if you're going to keep tutoring, you need to grow a pair.

Haha the textbooks in my middle school were filled with things like that, usually you would have to turn to a bunch of different pages before finally finding the "secret message" (usually something like 'Mr. MacDermott is gay') or a picture of a penis. kids nowadays will never get to experience that joy.

The reason for that is that some parents now a days just give into their kids tantrums, it's sad really because after they have been spoiled all their life they won't know how to do shit. And Moonfire your not a grandma don't let the little bastards get to you

"Today, I was tutoring a middle school kid. He made a comment and I can't tell if he was cracking wise or is really just a moron. Either way I'm emo now. FML."
