Degrading English

In 1906, when two 23 year old men met on the street they shook hands and greeted one another by saying “How do you do?”

Then we invented cars, airplanes, television, flew to the moon and back, and created the internet.

In 2006, after a century of marvelous technological improvements and mind boggling discoveries in every field of scientific endeavor, when two 23 year old men meet they stick their hands in their pants, bob their heads up and down like a drunk chimpanzee, and say “Whasup?”

Something clearly has gone wrong with our society. It is rapidly turning into Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.

In training news: I ran four miles and met the mother of the garter snake I nearly stepped on yesterday.
