When I Was Young, We Had To Compute Uphill, In The Snow….
Didn’t you get something like this from your parents when you were younger?
“You kids don’t know how easy you have it. When I was young, I had to walk to school! In the snow! Uphill! Both ways!”
Well, a bunch of us Sciencebloggers recently got to reminiscing about the good ol’ days, when we were young, and computers were in their infancy, and we had to walk to school uphill both ways just to get our punch cards. And if you don’t know what a punch card is, three whacks with a slide rule for you! And if you don’t know what a slide rule is…ahhh…just go read all our little stories here. It’s a fun trip down memory lane. I can’t believe Ginny got so many of us to reveal how old we are. As the New Yorker cartoon once had it: “Back in the olden days, we weren’t so old.”
