Kids trying to figure out 80’s technology

If you’ve grown up with nothing but iPods and cellphones, you’re probably not gonna know what the hell someone’s talking about if they mention ColecoVision or the A: drive.

To test that theory, reporter Jean-Christophe Laurence decided to sit some Canadian kids down and show them a few technological artifacts to see if they could figure out what they were looking at, or if we’ve actually evolved to a point where a 1989 Game Boy isn’t recognizable.

Department of Labor investigation

The North Dakota Department of Labor claimed a small Bismarck farmer was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an agent out to investigate him.

Department of Labor employee: I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them.
 
Farmer: Well, there’s my farm hand who’s been with me for 3 years. I pay him $200 a week plus free room and board.
 
Then there’s the mentally challenged worker. He works about 18 hours every day and does about 90% of all the work around here. He makes about $10 per week, pays his own room and board, and I buy him a bottle of bourbon every Saturday night so he can cope with life. He also sleeps with my wife occasionally.

Department of Labor employee: That’s the guy I want to talk to… the mentally challenged one.
 
Farmer: That would be me.

Thanks Gene
