Ever notice how completely out of touch some (most?) public speakers are?
Last week we had a speaker ramble on for fully 1/3, maybe 1/2, of his 30 minute talk on the evils of "rap music".
I don't believe the term "rap music" has been uttered by anyone under the age of 40 for at least 20-25 years.
This week we got another "older gentleman" warning us about the pervasive dangers of "internet chat rooms".
Again - didn't "chat rooms" die out about the same time as dialing up to connect to AOL?
You might dismiss this stuff as the confused ramblings of old guys who find a "jitterbug" phone too complicated to figure out, but the Society's outlines and printed material still, in 2013, make copious references to "rap music" and "chat rooms".
What other archaic terms do you hear / read?
And the Society wonders why its message is met with eye-rolling derision by virtually everyone under the age of 30.....
