An "I feel old" moment  
I had to explain the word glasnost to several coworkers.

I don't even want to try perestroika.

Seriously, are people that uneducated these days?

I expect it out of the younger ones, but damn.

I have to remind myself that most of the boys on my team were about 6-7 years old when the Soviet Union collapsed. Just because these kids pick up 80s fashion doesn't mean that they are aware of Cold War memes.

These kids are stellar graduates from expensive East Coast colleges; not just UW and community colleges like you and me.
