I had thought that they no longer teach how to tell non-digital time, nor how to read Roman numerals ... do they?

You lived with that person r12? You have my sympathy.
Damn you, R8!
Or have ever used a rotary dial phone.
There were always college graduates who never wrote a coherent sentence, R6.
I actually work with a young woman who has no clue how to sew a loose button back on! Ironically, she told me her mother was an accomplished seamstress, I gather this is some type of passive/aggressive way of driving her mom nuts?
This young woman came into work one day with all the buttons loose on a very expensive designer coat, she asked us if there was a tailor nearby who could 'fix' her coat!
To add to this bullshit, we all work for a fashion designer. This young woman is a stylist, I still don't understand how she was hired, she claims she has no background in sewing, how can she know about clothes?! Everyone in the department sews, but we don't necessarily sew as part of our jobs, only in an emergency.
She's also a whiny entitled annoying piece of hipster shit. Blame the parents for coddling these idiots.
Soon enough, cursive writing will need an interpreter. Like some sort of hieroglyphs. Sad.
Velcro is alien technology.

Shouldn't that be a minimum requirement for acceptance?

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
