What's the matter with kids these days? Kids, who can understand anything they say?

What?
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

They don't understand us mildly older people either. I worked with some young folks and told a woman that was being bothered by something to 'just shine it on' and she gave me a blank look. I called a dollar bill a single and my nephews had no idea what I meant.

I can't understand my son half the time- he just says "Pi! Cor! Trisi! Pay-pay! Nigh-nigh! Nack-nack!"

Of course, a) he's only 15 months old, and b) he spends three days a week at daycare where they speak only Cantonese, and two days a week with his grandma who speaks Mandarin. Since I speak neither, I'm going to not understand more than half his words, the first few times he says them (until my wife clues me in.)

Then again, the ones I do understand make it all worth it.

Why these kids today, with their hair and their clothes...

Then, as I was saying, our youth should be trained from the first in a stricter system, for if amusements become lawless, and the youths themselves become lawless, they can never grow up into well-conducted and virtuous citizens.

I mean such things as these:--when the young are to be silent before their elders; how they are to show respect to them by standing and making them sit; what honour is due to parents; what garments or shoes are to be worn; the mode of dressing the hair; deportment and manners in general.

You tell 'em, Plato.

Beat me to it again, Nosher. This Vulcan mind-meld is pretty cool.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I'm surprised MagicSanta didn't acknowledge the reference first.
