I've heard of young people who don't know how to tell time by a traditional clock, but I always thought it was an urban myth. Really, aren't kids taught that in kindergarten anymore? "The little hand points to the hour, the big hand points to the minute." How hard is that to learn?
I wouldn't put that down to youth, so much as godawful stupidity.
We are quicksilver, a fleeting shadow, a distant sound... our home has no boundaries beyond which we cannot pass. We live in music, in a flash of color... we live on the wind and in the sparkle of a star! Endora, Bewitched
