I actually found out my younger brother (who's 16) knows people who cannot read an analog clock.
I find this saddening.
@OfficialNyarlathotep, Don't they learn that in school?
@OfficialNyarlathotep, im 22 and ik a good amount of people my age who cant read them either
yeah, it makes me sad too
@OfficialNyarlathotep, that was me as a kid after I got a digital calculator watch. I was like, the future is now old man, to anyone that tried to tell me I should learn analog. I learned eventually, but it took me longer than it should have.
@tard in space, I know people in their late 20's that can't. Really sad
@Fackinloaded, where do you people live? Like 50% of the clocks I come across are still analog, I’ve never seen a person of any age not be able to read an analog clock. Is Missouri really that far behind in technology or something?
@OfficialNyarlathotep, there was someone in my hs sophomore year who didn’t know the months in order she just knew which months existed but had to look at a calendar to see which month was next...also had someone who thought Vermont was a city in NY...high school was a fun time
@OfficialNyarlathotep, im 25 and most of my girlfriends cant read at all yet
@OfficialNyarlathotep, my brother who is 21 almost 22 and my sister, who just turned 18 both struggle with reading analogue clocks.
@JackBlackSackAttack, I read that, closed the comments went to the next pic and then had the "wait, what?" realisation.
*sirens in the distance*
@OfficialNyarlathotep, that’s weird. I can’t read digital clocks.
@The Flame War, In my school everyone was taught it by 3rd grade, but with the rise of smartphones almost everyone forgot how since they don’t have to know anymore
@OfficialNyarlathotep, try finding someone that can read a street guide.....or even knows what a street guide is.
@Kierkegaard, yes, we are.
Also, where in Missouri do you live?
@OfficialNyarlathotep, how is this a thing? Even if you didn’t know, it takes seconds to learn.
There is a joke about seeing the seconds in there somewhere. I cant find it though.
@Kierkegaard, To be fair where I live like 99% of the clocks are digital, the 1% being clock towers and the like. Obviously I’m still able to read analog but I rarely rarely see any. Also I live in Washington State.
@OfficialNyarlathotep, the tenth graders in the high school I went to have a 3rd grade reading level and are reading Halo instead of To Kill a Mockingbird. Now THAT saddens me.
@OfficialNyarlathotep, yeah but can you read a sundial?
@OfficialNyarlathotep, why digital is better in every way so why bother with analog
@OfficialNyarlathotep, I’m still high school and at my school if you don’t know how to read an analog clock oh man do you get bullied either by me other students or the teacher
@Not him again, St. Louis, but go to school @ MSU in Springfield. Also have spent my fair share of time in KC.
@Kierkegaard, I had some good time down there, even though I never actually attended the school. I'm in stl too. Neat. Most of the other people I see on here that live in Missouri are from the sticks.
@tard in space, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Why know a skill that’s becoming pointless to know. I know how to read analog and drive stick but I’ll never have to again in my life. Look at the language Latin. Used to be a good language to know, but not it’s a dead language
To be fair, a small child wouldnt have a clue about that.
@ThePandaPool , but I'm not sure micriwaves have antennae. Or maybe I'm just an aou of touch boomer.
@The Flame War, you and I understand that, but what would a kid be using nowadays that has an antenna that a kid would even know what that is?
@ThePandaPool , tru dat
But why is it wrong, so many people have little TV's in the kitchen
@uhm no pls, Exactly!
There is never a situation where a bed in the "Red Room" is a good thing.
I have a TV in my kitchen, so still correct
I mean I had a tv like that in the kitchen when I was a kid
I don’t know. My 4yo daughter, who I don’t think has ever seen even a home phone, let alone a corded wall phone, is still able to identify all kinds of phones. She can also recognize non-flat panel televisions.
Speaking of things people no longer recognize, how we doin’ now with Roman numerals? They still get taught at all?
I will admit when I first glanced at this and saw the odd time placement I thought it was a bible quote.
