Opinion: Who Cares About Spoilers?

Yesterday was a tough day for my inner-geek. I love comic book movies and Game Of Thrones, and had plans to spend my long-awaited holiday leave to catch up on the adventures in Westeros and the new Captain America movie.

Kids Reacting To An Old Cassette Walkman Is Wonderful And Horrifying

Originally marketed in 1979, the first Sony Walkman turns 35 this year, and it’s about as outmoded as a technology can be these days. That’s why it’s understandable that the kids in this delightful video, none of whom were not alive in the ’90s, have no idea how to use the thing. Or what it’s for.
