Wondering what something means?
Wondering how to do something?
Wondering how your kids did something?
Wondering if you should let your kids do something?

Oh thank God you're here.

What's this "internet" thing that young people keep going on about?

Patronising much? hmm

Well, some of us may have been using computers since before you were born! Do you really think we need someone to explain it all to us?

Well done, sonny. You've just won the internet.

I have a question.
The bear key on my keyboard keeps getting stuck. So when I want to type dragon I type bear by mistake. Why is that?

What year was Tim Berners-Lee born? No wiki-ing, now. If you're the youth expert you need to know this shit, so we don't have to.

DextersMistress Thu 12-Feb-15 21:39:11

Yes, and what is this 8==D

Opopanax Thu 12-Feb-15 21:39:35

I'm so glad he's male. I don't think a female can work the internet, can they?!

What does biscuit mean? I keep seeing it all over this site.

usualsuspect333 Thu 12-Feb-15 21:41:04

I have to get my 22 year old son to type my posts sad

I'm feeling bad now - I'm sure Blacklight means well.

Tell me about Instagram because I don't understand it. Occasionally I google "Instagram+name of teenage niece" (because I fret about her well-being for assorted reasons) and can see lots of photos of her pouting - is that because she has no security settings, or are there no security settings on Instagram? Also - what's the point? You post a pouty photo, someone comments - how is that different to FB?
