I sort of know what he means, but...

My friend Liz is a librarian, and often worked with the kids at the library - storytelling, help with homework, that kind of thing. One of them was talking about looking up stuff on the internet for homework, and asked her if she'd done that when she was at school.

"Well, um, when I was at school the internet didn't really exist, not like it is now."
*aghast* "Miss, how old are you?!!"
