IMO if that kid doesn't know what floppy disk is he should be slapped across his stupid face. Kids learn that **** as early as in elementary school (at least here where I live).

So you are telling me you don't learn about computer history in IT classes?
User avatar #71 to #69 - gamergay (01/22/2014) [-]
...yes
User avatar #89 to #69 - keltainenlumi ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
yeah...
#77 to #69 - Rascal (01/22/2014) [-]
by the looks of it the kid in the comic is in middle school at most
and there are no computer history classes in middle school

it still has a use it's just that you choose to use usb
#10 to #9 - Rascal (01/22/2014) [-]
Most computers that have come out in the past decade don't even have drives for floppy discs. Unless the kid uses a computer that's older than he is, a floppy disc is essentially worthless .

That and USB sticks hold more memory.
And are smaller. And are generally more convenient to use. I have a ******* 8gb USB stick next to me that would cost around, if not less than, 10$. And at most, a floppy disk could hold 200-250mb, apparently. And that would probably be the expensive **** .
#35 to #24 - Rascal (01/22/2014) [-]
Huh I was going to argue because I never worked with one that was that big.
The Biggest one I ever worked with was 20385 kB.

huh Thanks for the lesson guy
User avatar #48 to #35 - EdwardNigma ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
I was surprised too.
Most only held a few MB, apparently, the large ones were rare.
#61 to #48 - icefall (01/22/2014) [-]
yeah superdisk floppy disks were the only ones capable of holding more than 20MB. Even the 20 MB floppy were not that common either, the biggest floppy I remember using was a 2.8 MB one.
The ones that held 200~250 MB were rare since the Compact disk, which held 700 MB, was created. Only people who didnt buy a CD Reader stayed with the floppy for few years.

As a point though, I use floppy disks in my every day life. A lot of medical equipment (like ECGs) are quite old, but still work great. Thus they still use floppy disks.

Comic sans because **** you.
#79 to #39 - killerofcows (01/22/2014) [-]
but he asked if he seen one though

I never seen a catapult even though I knew they existed

1. Pictures/drawings of an object are good enough
2. Museums
#90 to #85 - killerofcows (01/22/2014) [-]
No intention of being a douche but I would argue that to be false

pictures or photos of something is not the same thing as the live one

I barely came across floppy's, and its not because Im to young, but because we were poor and dad had no use for computer, so I did not have one untill I was 15 and the age of floppy's was already gone.

But even though I was very aware what a floppy was, I still got excited the first time I got to use one

The shirt says 42, he's wearing mega cargo jeans, and thick rimmed glasses.
This guys, is a full blown meme fag.
"Wow u dun kno what old technology is? WAT RU SOM SORT OF FAGT!!! HAHAHAHAH!!!1 Rite guis?"

Its outdated technology you d-bag, get over yourself.

I don't get why people get nostalgic about floppy disks, flip phones or other legacy technologies that no bastard uses anymore. Yeah, they were useful back then and we had fun with that **** , but I'm glad those times are over.
User avatar #33 to #6 - dedaluminus (01/22/2014) [-]
My flip phone is the indestructible bastard from Casio. The G'zOne I think. Waterproof, hammer proof (self tested.) I haven't got a new phone in 7 years. And you know what? I don't need internet when I'm out and about. I have never been in a situation where I would want to be on funnyjunk or check my email when out. I love my flip phone.
User avatar #34 to #6 - thewaronbeingcool (01/22/2014) [-]
My flip phone ******* rocks. It can go a week without charging, which is more useful to me than being able to play angry birds.
User avatar #37 to #6 - popnotes (01/22/2014) [-]
Flip phones are durable as **** and also really goddamn cheap when compared to iDevices.
User avatar #45 to #6 - omenaaa (01/22/2014) [-]
I had a slidephone
#70 to #6 - gutterwolf (01/22/2014) [-]
I have a flip phone and I love it. its a kyocera DuraXT, a military grade phone that can resist up to 3 meters of water for 30 min

People get nostalgic about stuff they liked maybe? It's just psychology.

I bet you kids don't know what this is. You should though, because it was used back in my youth.
User avatar #66 to #43 - meuk (01/22/2014) [-]
Is it a nipple elongator?

It looks like an old fashion washing machine and wringer.

Just know that none of these guys would know what it was either. 300 years in the future, and way beyond the diskette. It doesn't mean they're idiots if they don't know what a ******* diskette is.
#52 to #2 - messerschmidto (01/22/2014) [-]
It's only small when it's floppy.

I would like to say you are absolutely right. But
1) Using a fictional tv show is not the best way to prove a point
2) They are floppy disks and I will always call them that
#14 to #13 - sixty ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
Doesn't matter...People of the future won't know them. That's the point I'm making. I like star trek, so I used them as an example. Also, this is a diskette. Floppy disks look different
User avatar #15 to #14 - collegedood (01/22/2014) [-]
That is why I started off with "you are absolutely right" although you had a faulty example
also wikipedia (the truest form of the truth) says: "A floppy disk, or diskette, is a disk storage medium composed of a disk of"
and google images gives pretty much the same image result for both so in my heart it is a floppy
#16 to #15 - sixty ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
Bleehhh, alright
Bleehhh, alright
User avatar #65 - notapancake ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
So what reaction did you want?

"HOLY BITCHTITS IS THAT AN OUTDTED DATA STORAGE DEVICE?!?"
#59 - fecal (01/22/2014) [-]
While everybody in the comments is losing their **** over the form op chose to get the message, I thought this was actually a good reminder of the fact that we are getting so old that 12-year old's may have now lived their entire life without coming into contact with or using a floppy disk. Which used to be the most important data carrier in many of our youth's.

however, that is a awesome fact, and it makes me exited as **** as to what is going to be new in another 23 (im 23) years!
#86 to #59 - killerofcows (01/22/2014) [-]
Im 24 and almost made it without comming across floppys.

dads friend had one with him once when he came over, it was empty and had no impact on me
first time I got unemployed we got to save our information on floppys (already outdated by then)
and right now I see them in my job (and no not as a piece of office material, I work with collection of gifts, and then send to second hand store and sell for charity, book and multimedia department)

User avatar #94 - viscerys ONLINE (01/22/2014) [-]
Just gonna say it - Floppy disks aren't really something worth reminiscing about. I mean, they didn't hold much and broke easily.
#100 to #94 - DemonMatt (01/22/2014) [-]
But its retro, durr.

It's so weird how stuff gets better as time goes on. I feel like no one appreciates the phonograph anymore, what with CD players and iPods.
User avatar #68 to #49 - nucularwar (01/22/2014) [-]
Nobody listens to music on clay cylinders anymore...
#74 to #68 - Rascal (01/22/2014) [-]
Actually , audiophiles - people who are serious about the sound of their music prefer the sound reproduced on records . They say that digitally reproduced music lacks depth and sound quality . And while I'm at it , records are making a comeback and gaining popularity .
User avatar #112 to #74 - nucularwar (01/22/2014) [-]
Never said **** about records.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phonograph

apparently they were usually tin or wax not clay. my bad

I'm pretty sure back in 2009 this joke would pass but even that got old fast

Kids not recognizing outdated technology from the previous generation. The horror!
User avatar #30 to #27 - Shiny (01/22/2014) [-]
That only reinforces his point. If it's outdated then why haven't we replaced it as a saving icon?
#83 to #30 - Rascal (01/22/2014) [-]
it looks better than a usb
also tradition

When I went to elementary school I still used floppy disks to DL pictures and store on IT lessons and transfer them to my PC. I'm getting freakin old.
