"Oh look at these stupid kids. They can't use a p y
rotary phone. They can't use a phone book."
Wow, it's almost like as technology advances,
older things slowly become useless and
obsolete. Kind of like Ellen...

    • While Ellen is a dumb retard, I would think rotary phones and phone books would be easily navigable by someone whose never seen one before. I mean, yeah, you may not know to turn the dial all the way, but it literally only turns one direction. Phone books are literally as simple as knowing the words

Same exact camera besides that. His sole reasoning was because it was “more traditional”. Very puzzling logic.
