Senior moments

… or “Kids these days”

Chatting in one of the threads on the AnimeNation Evangelion forum, about the sensory abilities of the Mass Production units — or “harpies”, as they are colloquially referred to — I mentioned that in the light of their apparent lack of eyes or ears, but questing muzzles, that “Perhaps, like the Pinball Wizard, they play by sense of smell.”

I was gob-smacked when I was subsequently asked to explain the reference. Apparently an appreciation for the classics hasn't reached the 20-somethings yet. :)
