It's more than just experience; they've been there, done that. Indeed,
every generation has a different kind of "experience", which is always
unique and invaluable.

I wish my grandparents were alive today so I could share with them the
technology I grew to love (when I was younger I learnt everything from
science to history from them), and in turn receive wisdom I could
probably never pick up alone in a hundred years. Even looking at my
father, I realise how little I've learnt for the 2+ decades I've been
blessed to enjoy what this modern world has to offer. Sometimes young
blood runs hot, too hot.

Sorry for derailing the topic further. I guess the train is now on a
collision course, but hats off to the old-timers from the audio
