If you were born between 1985 and today, there is a good chance you never learned how to read an analog clock. (You know, the round thing with hands?)

It used to be taught in schools, but these days, schools have bigger fish to fry, and analog clocks are slowly becoming a thing of the past.


But Jimmy Kimmel, ever out to show that people have really lost their marbles in this day and age, stopped young people on the street to try and make them read analog clocks.

The results were disastrous.



Can Young People Read a Clock? youtu.be

Only one person got remotely close.

Twitter is one giant sad face reaction.







One of the young women said her teachers at University of Texas, Arlington, would be so disappointed that she hadn't read a clock like that since elementary school.







Classrooms mostly use analog clocks still, even though students can't really read them.

Basic curriculum no longer includes teaching kids how to read analog clocks, leaving it up to parents.






The simple fact is, time has left analog clocks behind.

Frankly, with so much digital technology at our disposal, it's no longer important to be able to read analog clocks. Most everything is centralized on our phones, including alarms, kitchen timers, and anything else we may used analog for in the past

Onward and upward!

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
