Old vs. Young in the Information Age

Old people and young people have a natural rivalry, like cats and dogs. Except cats don't turn into dogs eventually, so it's not quite the same. Anyway, at least since lawns were invented, old people have been yelling at kids to get off theirs. And kids have been wishing old people would just die, already. Now, someone has harnessed the power of the Internet to allow the old and young to explain exactly why they hate each other on the site I Hate Young People. And you can join in by submitting your own videos. Isn't technology grand? -- Cory Casciato
