    Notice, you gave none of them.

    Seriously, I'm one of the most likely conservatives on this forum to routinely criticize or even outright rip other conservatives, republicans, politicians, whatever when they are acting stupid or going against their principles. You're comment would make sense if it was grounded in any sort of reality, which its not.

    Nice worthless one liner that was utterly and completely focused on the poster though.
    Maybe that is what you think but I call it only your opinion. As a matter of fact, I would call it sophistry, IMHO.

    Depends on how he defines "work."

    Is understanding equate to the battery powers basically a computer to run software and store data on either flash or hard disk to do whatever the software does or is "work" equate to understanding the underlying code and how exactly the individual components themselves function?

    I seriously doubt many people here can do the later. Including you.

    As a senior citizen, I take umbrage at your "old man" remark.

    Once a person is hardwired to do it one way, he naturally resists the need to do it another way, and as long as he can still do it the old way, there's no reason to change. Many older people I know still use rabbit ears on their old TVs, and typewriters instead of word processors.

    I think you're taking this too seriously.
