  • The internet has made it so easy to find information.
  • Does anyone remember encyclopedias?
  • Yeah?
  • All right.
  • They were these giant books that everyone read and everybody
  • had them.
  • Who remembers books?
  • How many of you still have encyclopedias?

  • Well, I was wondering if they still were around.
  • So I googled it and look what I found.

  • You can buy the whole set of World Book
  • Encyclopedia for just $799.
  • Or you can get it for a 100% off because all of that
  • is on the internet for free.
  • So the internet has made it so easy.
  • Everything is just obsolete because you don't need anything
  • anymore.
  • You don't need maps or phone books or human interaction.
  • And I was curious how many young people
  • could function without it.
  • So I set up a challenge.
  • And what I need is a young person right now.
  • And Marley Flandro I know that there's
  • someone named Marley here.

  • Since I was 11, I've been making and selling
  • little zipper pouches.
  • Like Fanny packs?

  • Yeah, they're back in style again.
  • They are.
  • So zipper pouches, like for people

  • A little entrepreneur.
  • Yeah, I love it.

  • All right, do you know what this is?
  • Yeah, it's a map.
  • Yes, it is.
  • When's the last time you used a map?
  • Probably like offroading with my dad.
  • Oh, you have used it then?
  • I think he's used it probably.
  • Your dad has.
  • So your dad uses a map versus like GPS
  • on his phone and stuff?
  • Back in the olden days, probably.
  • OK.
  • When was that?
  • Like several years ago?
  • Probably when I was younger.
  • When you were younger, which is not that long ago.
  • All right.
  • All right, so here's a map.
  • Do you know what this is?
  • It's a Yellowbook.
  • It has everyone's phone numbers in it, right?
  • Well, you've just read on there.
  • It says Yellowbook.
  • And it's yellow!

  • Yeah, so you know what that's used for?
  • Have you ever seen one of these?

  • A lot of young people don't read the time anymore in clocks.
