When in Doubt, Lie

I was standing in line at a place earlier today, waiting to do something. In front of me were a college-age couple; ahead of them were a couple other people, and then an old fart wearing a jacket embroidered on the back with the logo of Solidarność. The female half of the couple in front of me nudges the other, points to the jacket, and asks “Solidarnosc?”, to which the guy responds “Yeah, they were this one-hit wonder back in the early 1980s. They were more like Steppenwolf than Scorpion, you know?” She just kind of shrugs, and they then begin discussing why all “German bands” have names that begin with letters from the back end of the alphabet….

Ah, kids these days. Sure, they were probably in diapers when Poland’s historic little social revolution happened, but don’t schools teach this stuff? Evidently not…
