If you have tried to explain old technology to kids lately, you already know… They will sometimes look at you like you are a crazy person. Recently, I was trying to explain the old Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure movie to my 13yo Godson. Out of all of the ridiculous part of it, the part that he got hung up on and looked at me like I was crazy about was when we came to the concept of what a phone booth is… He had never heard of one and thought the idea sounded ridiculous. “Go to a port o potty type thing for a phone? Why? Just use your cell phone…” Wait until I try to explain the concept of the kitchen phone with the 80ft cord or a pager.

Comment with what old technology you’ve tried to explain to a kid. Recently, I tried to explain Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure to my 13yo godson… Let’s just say it ended at phone booth and me trying to explain to a kid who’s never known anything but a cell phone, what a phone Booth is. Weird concept for a kid and he looked at me like I was a crazy old dinosaur
