I see..........


Number sign
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

number sign, pound, hash, octothorpe #


This is an article on the symbol #. It is most commonly known as a number sign, hash,[1] or pound sign.[2] Other names include octothorpe and hashtag.[3] The symbol is used for a variety of purposes, including the designation of a number (for example, "#1" stands for "number one"), an abbreviation for pounds avoirdupois in the food industry, a searchable metadata tag on social media platforms,[4] and a button on telephone keypads. The symbol is defined in Unicode as U+0023 # NUMBER SIGN (HTML # as in ASCII).

I am intensely consumed with information and knowledge that is of no value whatsoever in the real world, and totally void of meaningful skills or abilities!!!

Do you still have imagination???? Hope so.............
Ahh... I get you now.

I'm part of Gen X but just barely. I'm a little bit of a tweener. I had some electronics in my childhood, but they didn't completely rule my life. I had a TV and video games. The internet came along when I was about 15 or so. Cell phones a few years later.

But I still spent many days playing outside with my friends. Football, baseball, kickball, climbing trees, a few games were we just made up the rules as we went along. We definitely had a lot of fun not staring at a screen.

Maybe they are just returning what was dished out! When you get older, your tolerance levels drop.

My childhood only had three channels that went off air at 11:30pm and you didn't hang around the house or come home to complain about something your friend did during the day because your mom put you to work. You had friends all over the neighborhood and knew all of their parents who would call your mother if you did anything wrong, so you didn't. You were home before it got dark OR ELSE.

Not so bad in the scheme of things.

Seeing a mannerly person under the age of 30 is a rarity.
My DIL is 30 she teaches high school. You would not believe the stories she tells. She has one girl who thinks she is a rabbit.......... I told her she needs to write some of the stories down would make a unbelievable book. Some would really surprise you the other way too though...............

My cousin Lisa is a 4th grade teacher in NY and for a whole week one of her students claimed he was from a foreign country and couldn't understand English. He would get up in class, walk around and even leave sometimes because he could not understand the teacher telling him to sit and behave. He didn't do any work and even skipped a test because he "couldn't read the language". Lisa gave him a failing grade for the week but when the parents found out and complained, the school officials had her expunge the whole week from his grades so it wouldn't bring down his overall score.

What's wrong with society today? Back in the day if I had pulled that, my grades would be the least of my worries once my parents found out.
