Kids these days

While I'm fairly certain that kids have been pretty stupid since the dawn of mankind, it sure as hell seems like they haven't been getting much smarter as of late:
Australian authorities said two girls lost in a drainage well system
used their phones to update their Facebook statuses instead of calling police.

Glenn Benham, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Fire Service in Adelaide, said the girls, ages 10 and 12, posted Facebook updates saying they were lost in a storm drain in the city's south suburbs and a friend who noticed the updates called police, Britain's The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.
The article goes on to note that since they were able to use their phones to access their Facebook pages from inside the storm drain, they could have just, you know, called the authorities directly. Yeah.
