@freetalklive dumber? I think they are generally book smarter - the ones who do well in school, not the slackers :) - but are nowhere near the level of motivated as kids 100 years ago. I think adults have coddled them to the point where they are now regressing in their maturity. 100 years ago you had 14 year old boys signing up to fight in WWI. That would be a rare thing today I think.
