    Now, that is funny.

    even being the only person in my high school that shoots film, most all the others know what it is.

    Haha, that is ... wow. Just plain stupid. And funny. How does she not have a clue what film is? People that age, while young, are old enough to remember what "film" is. I've never come across somebody who didn't know what film was, unless they were really young. A 5 year old may not know what film is, and understandably so, but an 18 year old? Please. Only thing I can think of is really bad memory or just plain oblivious.

    Thanks for the good laugh, though.

    Sorry to say, many young people have little general knowledge, even after having gone through college. If it wasn't taught, they don't know it. I remember talking with a geology graduate and referred to the material on a slope as alluvium. He said "How do you know what alluvium is? Did you study it?" He was amazed that I regarded it as general knowledge.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Model; "what's Film?"

    I know someone who is like that. Nice girl and intelligent enough but zero general knowledge. Anything not of direct immediate interest just whistles past her apparently.

    My 8 year old nephews know what film is. Anyone over 15 who doesn't is either dumb as a rock, or has been living under one.

    Sadly, many do not want to know anything they don't have to know. Several friends are teachers, and the mood of the students has heavily shifted towards, "I don't want to know how it works, I just want to know the answer."

    Their lives are geared around standardized tests, and the answers are all that matters.

    My 12-year-old and my 16-year-old both know what film is. Not only that, they each have a film SLR.
    ME Super

    Shoot more film.
    There are eight ways to put a slide into a projector tray. Seven of them are wrong.
