One up to the seniors

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 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 have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy,  electric and
hydrogen cars, computers with DSL, bsp; light-speed processing  ....and," he
paused to take another drink of beer.

The Senior took  advantage of the break in the student's litany and said,
"You're right, son.  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 was resounding...
