Anders, for *you* to say that *I* am a pretty good lecturer is far too kind,

I was speaking straight from the heart with them, about all the cool powers
one gets from studying a particular field of mathematics: calculus.  That
one area opens so many doors, admits one into the grokminati, provides a
whole new bag of tricks, a deep one. 

The notion that modern teenagers are disconnected or not able to concentrate
doesn't ring true to my own experience.
