    Not far from the truth, I’m afraid to say.
    Think about this the next time you’re flying, and ATC tells the pilots they have traffic at 12 o’clock. As they both look at their digital watches and wonder “What the hell is he talking about?”

    In 2005, a 13-year-old in my family, upon seeing a rotary-dial desk telephone, asked what it was. After the explanation, he thought it was cool, and used it in his room, until a few years later when his family stopped using the land line.

    It is tough being a digital kid.

    Yeah, and they don’t even teach them proper buggy whip technique any more. It’s so sad…

    The kids are taught that everything that is wrong with the world is America’s fault.

    As a 15 year old writing this, trust me, there are a few kids in my generation who aren’t completely dumb. We shake our heads at them too.

    You’re the problem, not teaching kids about Analog Clocks and Watches and how to read them.

    Thank You for some sanity and letting us know you’re taught how to read analog and soem kids choose to not learn this valuable tool

    Not only can’t children today read an analog clock. They can’t add, multiply, subtract or divide etc… without a calculator! Sad situation!

    Yea, but the digital clocks makes them learn math. You can look at an analog clock, see the big hand on the 8 and little hand on the 4 and know it is 20 minutes til 5. When a digital clock reads 4:40, you have to subtract to know it is 20 minutes until 5:00. See some good comes from everything.

    At least that old watch has 12 dots. Some of the modern ones are even more minimalist when it comes to lack of dial marks.
