They have nothing!!!!

The kids were talking about the Tesla that was launched the other day. My son in law said "yeah they had a sign that said 'don't panic'" yuk yuk.

Their laughter turned to salty tears when I pointed out that the phrase was a reference to Hitchikers Guide.

It occurred to me ... what have these young fuckers contributed? Nothing!!! Name something? Hum a rap song. Go ahead.
Their iconography has to reach back to Monty Python.

Ingrates.

Because I am an old fart I recognized the reference right away. :oldman:

But you know what?

Hitchiker's Guide sucked, that's what. 8)

The young whippersnappers in question did not miss anything. :P

It also reminded me of Heavy Metal. Another thing Teh Kids probably know nothing about.

(Yeah, that movie doesn't really hold up well. You had to be stoned to watch it, but don't tell the kids.)
