3. That doesn't make me feel old.

I grew up with those phones, and I'm using a smartphone right now, so that video actually makes me feel smart.

That was too funny.

4. Hint: Pick up the receiver before dialing

The phone is not avocado in color; therefore, the experiment is worthless.

7. I love the way they hang up the phone and then start dialing!!!!!!!!!!

It never gets in their heads that they have to keep the phone off the hook.

8. Actually, it makes me think these two kids aren't too bright

Born in 1976 here. Never owned a rotary phone in my life and neither did my family. Never used one until I was maybe eight or nine and stayed at my grandparent's house for a week, and they had one. Figured out how to use it within less than a minute with no one showing me. Which means 8-year-old me is a lot smarter than these two.

11. I remember relatives out on farms that still had hand-crank ringers...

and the phone was a big oak box on the wall. All calls were patched through an operator (1950s).

The first phone I can recall in my childhood home was the old black rotary dial Ma Bell phones and I think we only had to dial three or four numbers for local calls. All long distance (including neighboring towns) went through operators.

13. Doesn't make me feel old, but very funny. Just think, you don't even have to go that far back....

Would they know what a cassette tape, or 8-track tape, CD or DVR player, or even what a dvd is, would they know what Block Buster was?

So many advancements in such a short time frame.

14. Reminiscent of the apes trying to figure out the monolith in "2001."

A lot less animated, though.
