When looking at Gen Y, I've always thought that we can only "guess" what they're going to be like once they're adults, because I was 25 before I even STARTING getting a clue. Now I have evidence to back up my hunch.

As an educator, I hear other educators complain A LOT about "kids these days." I made a presentation at a local conference of community college professors recently and one of them asked me "What's going to happen when these kids get out into the real world without the skills they need to succeed." He was referring to turning in homework on time. My answer was that today's students have all the skills they need for the future, it's us adults that will be lacking. The audience chuckled at me. "Silly Nineshifter."
