The 40 something had a good response...



"No. Back in the 1980's I spent all of my free time eating *****."


Times have changed.. No wonder why the Japanese are having less kids these days.

I don't think the 30 year old will be procreating ever, even if they banned phones. Actually, in the lab I worked in, Geekistan, very few of the engineers pro-created, maybe five out of sixteen.

The ***** eater adopted because his wife can't have kids. The other eight, it's just as well.

Our controller from D.C., who paid us, was smoking hot. When she was down from D.C. we'd introduce her to all the new team members. We took her back the lab he was in. The 30 year old, MSEE, was polite, said hello, and went back to his code writing. That had to be about the closest a hottie had got to him in years. I felt like slapping him up-side the head and saying "Girl! Stop coding!"

No longer just in Asia. This seems quite common these days here in America too.
The old days where the parents spent quality times with kids is changing.
Kid has the iPad and father has the smartphone. No one is talking to another

Old fashioned board games and newer incarnations are not entirely dead! Two of my nieces and nephews, age 19 and 21 have an entire closet filled with them. I enjoy playing with them, even one of their dozens of "themed" Monopoly games. They are not entirely nerds and have current iPhones plus the latest iteration of console TV platforms.
