Robdouth, this is the second time l've had to read some tirade from you about Scott Adams painting "all" of a group with the same brush . (The other time was about Colombians.)
1. The cartoonist did not say this applies to all of that group.
2. The joke is about faulty sampling techniques! So get a life!
Ah, but it all comes full circle . . . now there are classes to teach people how to unhook themselves from the technology that enslaves their every moment. Just by saying "no, thanks" to some of this technology in the first place, you wind up on the cutting edge a few years later! ;-)
"Who do you think you are? Jay Leno? This cartoon is very bigoted against old people. The stereotype that you believe in is not very true of the vast majority of older people. Hey but while you are at it, why not poke fun and handicapped young people? It would be a hoot."
This is such an idiotic statement I'm sure the person who wrote it is handicapped mentally in the sense that they are just an idiot with no offense intended to the bright and lucid mentally handicapped. This isn't bigoted against old people, it just points out that of the people who don't update their technology, the vast majority of them are old, and they are saying that the old people who are still lucid and connected have updated, so he's making a point that the only people who don't update have checked out anyway. This is totally my grandparents. Anyone under 50 wouldn't be applicable and there is probably less than a dozen people under 30 who would meet these technological criteria.
This is retarded. Before I even scrolled down from the actual comment I knew there'd be a billion pages of belly-achers whining about how offensive to old folks they thought it was.
If you think Scott Adams is offensive, I suggest you go turn on the TV and watch a few episodes of FAMILY GUY. You'll get so bent out of shape the only way to resolve the angst will be go to in your bedroom and stick your tongue in a light socket.
Then you'll come CRAWLING back to Dilbert and his playful political incorrectness.
