blogging vs microfiche

This is a public service announcement to all my fellow savvy, net-genners. Don't write off old people simply because they're "out of touch" or don't know what the Internet is. For every modern word we use every day, the blue-hairs have their own antiquated term that, due to its utter obseleteness, baffles us. 

For instance, we have blogs, they have microfiche.
We have facebook, they have the snuggie.
We have google, they have their very own pudding.
We have iPhones, they have social security (or do they? (wait, yes they do)).
We have youtube, they have the Teapot Dome Scandal.

So next time an AARP member looks confused when you mention eBay, show some respect. Or they'll ruin robot insurance for all of us.
