destrip: News writer is a dumbass. Playing a video from a hard drive is not "streaming."
Craptastic: My nephews, 17 & 19 y/o, have never expressed any interest in getting their drivers licenses. It's just weird. The older one is a college freshman living on campus, and his mother picks him up every weekend. The younger one is going to go to a local uni and live at home. He figures he'll get his DL this summer so he can get to/from class, but doesn't really want to.It boggles the mind. Everyone I grew up with had their DL within 4-6 months of their 16th birthday.
The My Little Pony Killer: The SO and I haven't had a vehicle of our own in years. We use Zipcar and Amtrak to get around.If someone tells you they "need" a car to do anything, that's just a red flag for their high maintenance.

HellRaisingHoosier: A better guess as to why is:-Gas prices-Vehicle prices-Insurance prices-Historically high teenage unemployment
Frizbone: and now you have EPA etc that stop you from doing engine mods to them...in my day we could do (and we did) anything we wanted to the engines without government intervention...
child_god: In MY DAY, we had to walk 5 blocks just to knock on the door because the only phone in the house (theirs or ours) was busy.
Abe Vigoda's Ghost: But that was only about once a month, as it was only dry goods she ever needed, and a bottle of opiates from time to time.
Bennie Crabtree: Why would anyone planning for college want a car? It is one more loan with interest payments, that depreciates the moment you drive off the lot.The internet, on the other hand, means employment can happen anywhere.The kids today are smart.
