It seems like I hear everyday that kids are getting smarter and smarter every generation.
I don't believe this is true and here is my evidence:

The Owner's manuals from vehicles 50 years ago gave you information on how to do a minor tune-up.

These days the Owners manual comes with a battery warning:

-If acid has been swallowed, consult a doctor immediately!

As a kid I may have seemed dumber than kids these days, but I never had to be warned NOT to drink Battery Acid.

The kids must be really smart, auto batteries are sealed now.

With all of the onboard computers, tuning your own car is pretty much a thing of the past.

If it wasn't for my old tractor I'd get rid of my dwell meter and timing light.

I had an organic timing "light".

I had my little brother lay on the ground under the engine holding the #1 plug wire and I would watch for the flinching.
