I mean, really, what's a floppy disc? 

My mom & dad recently moved to a new place. In going through all his junk, my dad asked what to do with his floppies. "Throw 'em away," I said. After all, no one in the family owns a computer with a floppy drive so even if there were something interesting, we'll not be able to read them. 

Are you using out-of-date metaphors?
