Of course not in India!! Almost fully high school students and few (say 10%) from community colleges, nursing school, exam prep to be a firefighter or ASVAB

:namaste:
So via computer or phone? Same difference. Just curious.

My experience with young people is that they are not insulated to the degree you are asserting. And I am a father to American children, so I'll let you know how they turn out as they grow up.

Dude...after all of these years, I wouldn't take anything from you impersonally, but I also can be honest with you without any ill will. :smile:

What I think is a general trend is that young people are better informed than they were 20 years ago. For now, just like in the 60's and again in the early 90's, it is cool to know a thing or two.
