Nice to 'know' someone famous!

A good guy. I hope if/when he comes back people will be kinder to him than they were when he figured out how to basically turn the Japanese economy into Detroit during your game.

What is really sad is that video contains more than 90% of what folks know about world war two. Hal

Sorry, I fail to see any point in that video. Two minutes of what? History? I don't think so. Did anybody hear gain any insight into WWII from it? Not me.

Andrew has some pretty neat stuff going on but two minute history videos don't cut it for me. Tell him I will vote to send him into space if he promises to not make any more of these...

I beg to differ. I can understand that no one in this forum would get anything out of his video, but I believe that there are a lot of people who might learn something. I think there is a significant portion of the population that doesn't know the slightest thing about world war II. I also think that it is a great video for the attention-deficit generation(s).

At work we have a photo that has Muhammed Ali and the Beatles in it. I have a co-worker who is almost 30 years old and doesn't know who is in that photo! Do you think he would know about world war II?

As a member of one of the stereotypical "attention-deficit generation(s)", I must heartily disagree with the statement and attest that it is extremely inaccurate. Which isn't to say that there aren't people my age who don't know about things like WW2 (many don't), but an affinity for technology and multitasking is better described as such than as attention deficit disorder. Information addiction (constantly refreshing facebook/twitter pages, etc.) and lack of patience for gratification, on the other hand, are valid concerns.

I was really appalled when that Presidential spokesman (Dana Perrino I think is her name) didn't know what the Cuban Missle Crisis was! That close to WWIII and it wasn't important enough for her to know.

I apologize if offense was taken. I shouldn't have used the word "generation". Maybe just "group" and whoever falls into that category--oh well. It's just that I've run across so many individuals who just don't know anything about anything other than Facebook, twitter, youtube, etc.

Anyway, sorry Lokasenna if I caused any offense.

Bill

No apology necessary . Just see news outlets and the like casually toss ideas like that around without there being much for evidence .

I'm sorry John, I'm not getting you. The all caps aren't helping either, unless there was a THIS you forgot to add to your post. Are you making a point about the entire Presidential posse at that time? I'm not going to say whether I'd agree or not, we should keep political judgements out of the forum.

Now, I am offended that you called me a Gorn Man. I'm a Gorn Gorn. I merely have a human disguise I use sometimes. For instance, when I go to a restaurant in flagrante, I have trouble getting seated, let alone served. You humans are so racist.

"Near misses" are forgotten by many the next day. Currently, things like the Holocaust...D Day...The Battle of Britain...and more recently the original Moon Landing are being thought of as myths, or worse, propaganda.
We who were there, or knew those who were, have a responsibility to remind the younger while we can.

Agree. Most of the young (Under 40 adults) in my congregation know diddley about WWII, it's orgins, causes, or repercussions. Their memories begin with the ending of the Cold War, and they know next to nothing about WWII except the US dropped Fat Man and Little Boy on two helpless Japanese cities (Mark that up to our current crop of History Professors who grew up during the VietNam era and hate anything the US has done! Mark you, not a one of them has done much more than criticize - which as Heinlein said is not the province of those who act, but those who watch!) I had to take a course recently for recency of credit, and the professor knew next to nothing about World Wars I or II. All I learned was how much more widespread the racial inequality was in the US from the end of the Civil War to the Assassination of Dr. King. Nothing much was mentioned about the involvement of the United States with defeating the Nazis, the gentle ministrations of the IJA/IJN from 1937 on, Mussolini, the years of Stalin, the Cold War the Space Program. If it was bad, he told about it. If it showed some sense of national focus and progress except in his narrow area of focus, he was clueless. And he is teaching our future high school teachers, and probably a few future doctoral candidates. Oh Frabjous Joy!
