It's like each generation thinking they discovered sex.

On the other hand, when newbies are excited about X, we coelacanths 
need a measure of patience. T'other day I refrained from noting that 
we'd talked a given topic to death in 1992.

Just as well we're living in the pre-immortallish years. Once we're 
into the long time, it's harder to qualify as an cranky old coot.
