you accuse Scott of being bigoted and stereo typing,
Have you read your own comments. I can only make up that you feel that only old people have landlines and no caller ID!

Well who's stereo typing now?

I have no Caller ID and my mobile phone is switched off as soon as I get home from work
So there you go, and I'm only 30 years old,

So please stop stereo typing me and telling me that I am part of the old people group!

BTW Love the strip, Indeed it's all about who you start interviewing..
As with normal surveys you can manipulate anything to the outcome you wish to have...

Robdouth, this is the second time l've had to read some tirade from you about Scott Adams painting "all" of a group with the same brush . (The other time was about Colombians.)
1. The cartoonist did not say this applies to all of that group.
2. The joke is about faulty sampling techniques! So get a life!

Ah, but it all comes full circle . . . now there are classes to teach people how to unhook themselves from the technology that enslaves their every moment. Just by saying "no, thanks" to some of this technology in the first place, you wind up on the cutting edge a few years later! ;-)

What I find funny about this comic are the first two sentences. The idea that marketing thought it would be a brilliant idea to try to sell a new technology to people still using 60's technology!

"Who do you think you are? Jay Leno? This cartoon is very bigoted against old people. The stereotype that you believe in is not very true of the vast majority of older people. Hey but while you are at it, why not poke fun and handicapped young people? It would be a hoot."

This is such an idiotic statement I'm sure the person who wrote it is handicapped mentally in the sense that they are just an idiot with no offense intended to the bright and lucid mentally handicapped. This isn't bigoted against old people, it just points out that of the people who don't update their technology, the vast majority of them are old, and they are saying that the old people who are still lucid and connected have updated, so he's making a point that the only people who don't update have checked out anyway. This is totally my grandparents. Anyone under 50 wouldn't be applicable and there is probably less than a dozen people under 30 who would meet these technological criteria.
