What's with kids now-a-days? When I was 17 years old, I could only think about girls and video games. That was my whole life. Sure, I played a little guitar, but everyone was sick of hearing my version of "Wish You Were Here." Now here's 17-year-old Steve9842007 doing a near-perfect rendition on bass of Les Claypool and the Holy Mackerel's "Highball With the Devil."

Surfing the may YouTube renditions, I've seen very young people who are already experts on their different musical instruments. I'm pretty sure the kids today are genetically enhanced or something. Soon they'll be like that pianist in Gattaca.
