My cousin (11) came over to my house yesterday to help me build a mini quarter pipe ramp in my back yard. As the hours went by, I realized it was getting dark. I left my phone and watch in my bedroom, so I asked my cousin if he could go over to the back porch and tell me the time on my outdoor weather/time clock. He walked over and stood there for like half a minute. I looked back at him and thought, "is the clock broken?", "is he day dreaming over there?" No, none of the above, the kid couldn't tell the freaking time. I asked him what time it was. His reply, "um... I don't know". I was baffled. 11 years old and can't tell time. (He knows now, I taught him how to today.) I don't blame the American education system, I blame his parents for not teaching him such a basic thing. Digital clocks are definitly a way of dumbing down kids these days.

Can you tell the time, pit?

Because they don't use analog clocks.

i learned reading analog clocks when i was 7, because i had to. We mostly rely on the wall clock (that we still use ^_^), didn't have digital clocks back then.

Homework for parents!

1. Teach their kids to tell the time on standard clocks.
2. Teach their kids about generalisation.
#16
shit man what if nobody teaches their kids to read clocks and then eventually no one will know what time it is because no one will be able to tell the time and they wont have anything to set their digital clocks with and all the digital clocks will run out of battery and everyone will be late for everything
#17
^What if the internet runs out of battery and forgets what time it is?

Don't you mean Morse code? And you don't read Morse code anyway.

Personally I prefer sun dials as a way of accurately telling what the time is.

Pffft that's waaay too advanced. What happens when you're stranding in the wilderness with no sundial? It's all about star patterns, sun location in the sky, etc.

Kids these days talkin' 'bout sundials...

Anyone saying analog clocks are obsolete is ****ing ******ed.
It's not any harder to read an analog clock then a digital one, and it looks better, therefore it is better.

Well...it is, actually. Not much harder, not rocket science harder, but it is harder.

It seems that America is trying too hard to try and compete with Japan to actually teach the children what they need to know. Thank god I went to primary school in England.
Tomorrow will take us away
Far from home
No one will ever know our names
But the bards' songs will remain
Tomorrow will take it away
The fear of today
It will be gone
Due to our magic songs

That's weird his school didn't go over them. I remember in elementary school we had plastic clocks and the teacher would call out a time and we'd have to move the hands of it. If you got it wrong you were ostracized and stoned to death.
A bassist is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to.

I don't give a **** if the time 'looks better' on an analogue clock. I don't spend 15 minutes staring at the beauty of an analogue clock every time I want to know the time.

An analog clock makes a room look nicer in the same way a painting does. Analog watches look better than digital ones, which in general look cheap imo.
