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 very 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, man walking on the moon, our spaceships visiting Mars and the outer solar system. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with light-speed processing... and," he said,pausing to take another drink of beer.
The Senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, "You're right. We didn't have those things when we were young... so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little shit, what are you doing for the next generation?"
The applause around them was resounding...
This comes from a search and rescue pilot at Canadian Forces Base in Bagotville, Quebec. It happened late one night during bad weather, as heard over the tower radio:
Helicopter pilot: Roger, I'm holding at 3,000 feet over the beacon.
Second voice: (Panic in voice) No, you can't be doing that...I'm holding at 3,000 feet over that beacon.
Helicopter pilot: (Short pause) You idiot, you're my copilot!
