Holy shit- you still have a discman?
Do they still make those things? Have been off CDs for several years now (though my parents still listen to them so I've kept a lot of mine at their place) but always remember the discman laser that reads the CDs getting faulty pretty quickly back in the day.
But um yeah I don't really blame young college students for giving you weird looks when you whip out your discman. Many of them have probably never even *seen* one before.
