Wake-Up Call: Kids Today Have No Idea What a Rotary Phone Is

Wake-Up Call: Kids Today Have No Idea What a Rotary Phone Is | Troy West's Radio Show Prep | Scoop.it
Floppy discs, Walkmans, cassette tapes, CDs, and beepers are all considered museum-ready relics today. If that makes you feel old, wait till you watch "Kids React to Rotary Phones," the latest viral video from Benny and Rafi Fine — the vloggers behind the viral videos, “Elders React to Eminem” and “Teens React to Gangam Style." The Fine Brothers put a spin-dial phone in front of 12 kids from the iPhone era and totally blew their minds.

According to a statement on the country’s state-run news agency, the move was a sign of the “generosity of the laws of our republic” considering Short’s “advanced age.” Short also reportedly issued a written apology, saying, “I now realize the seriousness of my insult to the Korean people … I am willing to bow down on my knees to request this tolerance of (North Korea) and the Korean people.” As this story notes, many “confessions” written by those imprisoned in the country are frequently made under duress. Though North Korea claims to support a freedom of religion for its people, the regime of Kim Jong un is known to impose harsh penalties (including executions) on people found to own a Bible or that attends underground prayer services.
