I got 67. 
 
Apparently I'm behind the times for my age.

Interesting! It seems like people are really into it or way behind the times. :)

I wouldn't even have a cellphone had it not been for a family intervention. Seriously, my family had an intervention-style meeting and badgered me until I agreed to get one. That was an original RAZR, which I took a liking to. Then I was an early adopter of the iPhone. I had no plans to buy one until I handled one at the Apple Store. About 15 minutes later, I went and gave them $600.

So I've been pulled into mobile.

But I won't touch Facebook, have no ink or piercings, and haven't played a videogame since I had an Intellivision. A few have tried to persuade me to get a console, so I went and looked at them. The Xbox and PS3 seemed like interesting tech. Then I looked at the games and had no idea what I was looking at. They made me feel old. I had no idea what any of them were or how to determine what I'd enjoy.

I realized that I could have more fun playing with the cat. A ball of paper or some feathers on the end of a stick make for good fun.

I got a 97.  So I guess I relate to that generation, even though it's my daughter's generation. (I'm almost 40)
 
Also, for context:
 
I don't have TV reception.  Or a land line.  Both of legs are "socked" with tattoos from the knee down, though I don't have any tattoos anywhere else so many people may not know.  I enjoy video games, though many of my favorite games are years old.  Last night I was playing Heroes of Might and Magic 3, which is from 1999.  I have actively communicated with politicians recently, once through direct contact and once through a petition.  I do self identify as a member of a church, but rated it as not important to be "heavily religious", mostly because of the word "heavily".  I have a stale MySpace account, but will never join Facebook.
 
I think I lost 3 points for not having any piercings. :wink:

I think one of the reasons that I scored so low, aside from my positively medieval outlook on modern inventions, is that a great portion of the modern activities which I do engage in aren't tested for; for instance, I don't watch programmed television but I do download plenty of movies and watch indie efforts on YouTube or other places.
 
EDIT: Someone should come up with a graph or chart of how modern people actually are compared to how modern they scored; so far it seems like a person's actual age has very little effect on it, with me being the second-lowest scoring and one of the youngest people to answer.

I wouldn't have a cell phone either.....they gave it to me, then you can upgrade it every 2 years, but if the fancy schmancy ones want $30 data plans forrrgeeetttabouutiitttttt. I'll take whatever POS and get a slick DAP later. Plenty of people have said "Why would you want to be available 24-7? People can bug you at any time they want and you can't use the excuse that you were busy"

I like to space out whenever i'm going places, not be bothered, also people use them for the dumbest things "Did you remember to add salt to your dinner"
 
"I have a stale MySpace account, but will never join Facebook." ^^^ I wanted to be counterculture like that too, but then someone offered free Opening Day tickets and i had to sign up for Facebook

There's nothing like intra-species fellowship.
