    Seniors Only!

    A very self-important college freshman attending a recent football game took it upon himself to explain to a senior
    citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation.

    "You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one," the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, and man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars...We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing and," pausing to take another drink of beer...

    The senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, "You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young....so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little [censored]-head, what are you doing for the next generation?"

    This came by email, so credit to someone - not sure whom!

    My story begins in nineteen-dickity-two. We had to say "dickity" cause the Kaiser had stolen our word for "twenty". I chased that rascal to get it back, but gave up after dickity-six miles...

    Remember (somewhat irrelevantly), "old age and treachery will overcome youth and skill."

    Think this hits it on the head:

    Point Break -
    Pappas:Let me tell you something, Harp. I was in this bureau while you were still popping zits on your funny face and [censored] off to the lingerie section of the Sears catalog. But there's something I've learned in all my years...
    Ben Harp: Why don't you astonish me, [censored]brains.
    Pappas: [Pappas punches & decks Harp] Respect for my elders!
