    New section

    Won't it be it nice to include a new section of "anecdotes" We are dealing with millenniums and maybe they will enjoy and learn something from us, the old/dinosaurs ... LOL

    An interesting idea.
    1. I kind of enjoy seeing the anecdotes come up during the course of other discussions. A steady dose might be a bit much.

    2. People who grew up over the turn of the millennium (i.e around Y2K) are called millennials, not milleniums.

    3. A young boy asked his father (in 1999) what a millennium was.
    The dad answered "It's just like a century, only it has more legs."

    Camp Fire Chat is the place for this sort of thing, in my opinion.

    Don't be so grumpy.

    Here is one: in the 70s I went for a physical examination as a requirement for my "green card", the Chinese Doctor doing my exam asked me: are TB (tuberculosis) in your country? My English been so bad a that time (still) answered with proud, of course there are TV (television) I thought, that she being a Chinese wanted to do business there selling TVs, she asked again: are TB in your family? Of course all the family have TV

    Well, she sent me in ambulance to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Division of Tuberculosis Elimination in DC.

    But after a big laugh it was clarified

    No need to apologize, and it WAS just my opinion.
