Somehow I think the accomplishments of a generation who can't spell without spellcheck, add without a calculator or drive crosstown without a GPS pale in comparison

Preach it, my aged brother!

I was once almost tempted to throw a friend's GPS out of the window of his own truck! Bloody thing was SO annoying, and I already knew where to go! I don't need a bloody road nanny!

You don't have to be ancient to have watched Star Trek the original series over the airwaves, in 1982 I used to watch it on KHOU t.v. station down in Texas.

Um, most of that stuff was discovered by people of the same generation who post here. For many others, it was their father's.

Most of those things also weren't "invented" - they were discovered. Atomic energy always existed since the dawn of time. It just took some smart people to figure out how it worked.

Since the show went off the air in 1969, your watching it on TV in 1982 is no more meaningful than somebody watching it on TV in 2012...

I can only go as far back as Star Trek: The Next Generation, which I watched live on TV for the full original run. And it wasn't my parents' generation who landed a man on the moon, it was my grandparents. For my parents generation to have landed a man on the moon, assuming that holding a position of note at NASA in 1969would have required somebody of age 30, they would have had to have been born in the 1930s. If they were to have been there from the start of the manned space program, they'd have to have been born in the 1920s.

Neither of my parents were born in the 20s or 30s.
