Cultural touchstones

Two professors from Beloit college compile a list of cultural touchstones each year for the next college class. This one is for the class of 2014.

I had just read it quickly before I went out to lunch at a fast food establishment. I remember reading that wristwatches would not be worn because they would get their time for their cell phones.

I took an informal poll, very informal, I didn't keep count. The results though left no doubt they were right at least on that point. Watches were no more, except on us old boys and girls.
