Hmm.. I used to envy the kids who were born in the smartphone era, but after thinking hard about it one day, I realized that there is nothing to envy. They are privileged, certainly. But in a way so are we. Most of us made do during our respective childhoods before search engines and msn. Assuming that one has not lost it yet, our generation has experienced simplicity and perhaps it can even be said that we're the last generation that possesses the ability to tolerate and work through difficulties as well as understand the values from the days before technology became available to just about anyone living in a first world country (*cough* though Singapore may not feel like one at times).
...but then again, I realized that the people raising the spoilt brats should have also gone through what we did as kids, and I can only conclude that the people raising such children are probably the scum of society and have forgotten the values of the good old days anyway..

It's sad isn't it? Seeing how much things have changed

Yeah.. :\ People keep suggesting that I become a teacher, but stories like these really put me off. I'm convinced that I'll lose it and slap some brat or his/her mother.
