Richard C Stanford: Behold, the people who keep reality TV alive.Also: "Internet use is lowest in the South, particularly in Mississippi, Alabama and Arkansas."Why does that not surprise me?
TofuTheAlmighty: They're called tea partiers, subby, and they're misinformed, not uninformed.
Violet Son: Computer: "Here am I. This humble box, this simple screen, a gateway with which you can access any piece of information you desire. Any question, answered. Any story, told. Opportunity to connect to people virtually anywhere! The possibilities of unlimited knowledge are yours for the taking!
Snort: This just in, People in the 70's are actively looking for work.
doubled99: What's pathetic is the grand majority of farkers who think life without the internet is insane/impossible/unthinkable.
Marley'sGirl: One of my friends did some work teaching adults to use computers. God bless her because that has to be frustrating.
snowshovel: Yes, because getting people to log in daily to FreeRepublic, UnskewedPolls, Glenbeck.com, (on the liberal side we have intellicast, math.com, and thesaurus.com) we will attain the Age of Enlightenment.Before the internet, we had communities that would include one or two village idiots. Thanks to the internet, we now have entire villages of idiots.
UnspokenVoice: Why is he learning to use a computer? So that he can get the job he's trying to get. So, surely the Real Problem® is that he doesn't know how to use a computer. Yup... That's surely the problem. The problem isn't, you know, that they're seventy years old and looking for work in the first place. That couldn't be the problem... Nah...
d23: There is no reason an older person can't use the interwebs. It's a motivation thing. I have known quite a number of older people who learned how to use a computer late in life. It's a mental block and shouldn't be treated by the news as a real obstacle.
IdBeCrazyIf: And most of them will be dead within a decade, so this seems like a self correcting problem
