Nothing makes you feel older than having kids ask what the hell a floppy disk or 1st generation Gameboy is.

Just a reminder: everything French sucks and we saved your French a$$es during WWII. Don`t want you to forget is all.

I`ve always wanted to visit France. I feel like I could get lost in the Louvre for weeks and still not study everything. Plus I`m sure the local galleries are waaaaay ahead of the ones here!

I love France. I`ve been there and it`s beautiful, and also I found the people to be very warm and friendly. I`d rather be in France than in the US, to be honest. This place is full of dummies.

It`s ok with the cliché of the dirty smelly french with a hairy girlfriend. Every country gets this kind of jokes and it doesn`t offend us really because we know it`s not true.

But why do americans always have to bash every french thing on the internet and ALWAYS talk about WW2 ?
I just don`t get it.
France fought and lost the war, then was saved by the US and the UK. That`s a fact nobody tries to hide. That is what is tought in french schools. We don`t need a reminder.
I really don`t understand why you need to hate a country your country helped when they were losing a war 70 years ago.

And yes, they`re canadian.

this video is actually old— probably 5 years-ish? records are on the rise again and kids today would certainly know what a record was.

For a bunch of people that act like you`re so accepting, you sure complain about Americans a lot.

"Us owes its entire existence to France, who won the Revolutionary War for them."

I believe we`ve repaid that debt. Several times.

Look the reason why these kids dont know what this poo is is because its technology that never really was a inpact as much as things are made out to be today. YEAH they were amazing for there time but things in the 80`s were more about going forward in innovation then just praising tech for what it was... Im young but I can imagine tech has evolved quickly enough to ever surpass my knowlege of it... Some of the things I see my nieces use alone for there age blow my mind. But to the point there going faster and faster with poo to the point where that generation was shadowed by the quick advances....

@Auburnjunkie: You comment about French girls never having seen a razor is pretty ironic coming from a dude whose Mom looks like she sitting on Chewbacca`s shoulders.

no i think that the people hate the french is because during world war 2, they allowed the germans to invade without a single shot fired. your government at that time signed the surrender paper in the same traincar as the treaty of versailles. everyone thinks that youre cowards only because you lost just about every war since napolean lost at waterloo. with the help of another country, youre able to win.
im not taking sides in this matter only becuase its just something stupid to fight over

These aren`t even really from a long time ago.
In 15-20 years, kids will still know what a DS is.

I still remember when my little brother (who is now 16) asked my mom what her vinyl record was. I think she almost started crying.

Why most people are so enraged with French?
America you know one thing? Your beloved constitution come directly from the french constitution,the first and most liberal constitution made in Europe. Are you enraged with french cause they don`t have supported you in the fake, BS, full of lies Iraq war?

ah you see this is where my 4 year old beats them hands down, being a family of nerds we have a collection of old electronics so she`s been shown them on a regular basis. she`d not recognise the 8 track though.

Those kids are maybe in fifth grade. Why would you EXPECT them to know what anything was? I`m sure if you put a CD in front of them and asked what it was called, a good few wouldn`t know.

"Lol. Typical american response to another culture/language."

Well said. For a nation that welcomes immigrants for 200 years, they`re pretty unaccepting of other cultures.

Fail on the 8" floppy. It`s 5-1/4 as someone pointed out.

Also what do you expect from the French? When faced with any challenge they GIVE UP.

Yeah... I never had an original Game Boy. My first hand-held was a Game Boy color, though my first games were the first generation Pokemon games.

ok this is bogus. every kid i know that age (i.e. my cousins and my Nieces) know exactly what all of those things are, and how to use them.

Just backs up the phrase "are you retarded or just French?"

So, basically, kids are ignorant. at that age, I understood gadgets from the 70s and 80s because I watched movies.

If I get kids, they`ll know about the ancient technology. And I`m not only talking about PS3s, I`m talking NES or maybe even Atari 2600. Walkmen, C64s, really old Bang & Olufsen recivers and whatever. This is why I don`t throw things away.

And I`ll give them the LP. For a kid, "Old CD" is a perfectly acceptable description of Vinyl Discs.

I wonder how many of the kids even experienced non-optical mice. I remember getting an optical mouse in 2000 (a very awesome Logitech Mouseman Wheel optical), and they quickly took over.
