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!

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
