I was born in 1993.


They have no meaningful recollection of the Reagan Era and probably did not know he had ever been shot.

I knew Reagan had been shot., but I can't recall the era. Wasn't there.

They were prepubescent when the Persian Gulf War was waged.


Well, it seems to be happening again.

Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.


I've seen and used metal screw off caps, as well as metal pull offs.
The statement "You sound like a broken record" means nothing to them.
They have never owned a record player.
They have likely never played Pac Man and have never heard of Pong.
They may have never heard of an 8 track. The Compact Disc was introduced when they were 1 year old.


None of these apply to me. I've listened to 8 tracks, and seen a record player, and played Pong and PacMan.


They have always had cable.
There have always been VCRs, but they have no idea what BETA was.
They cannot fathom not having a remote control.
They don't know what a cloth baby diaper is, or know about the "Help me, I've fallen and I can't get up" commercial.


Didn't always have cable, I know what BETA is, I can fathom a great many things and I have so seen/used cloth diapers.

Roller skating has always meant inline for them.


Nope, that's "roller blading".

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

I've had air popped/stove popped. It's good.

They have no idea that Americans were ever held hostage in Iran.
They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.


Not true, and, wtf? Are you talking about glasses?
Kansas, Chicago, Boston, America, and Alabama are places to them, not bands.


I've been though the desert on a horse with no name, and I LOVE Alabama!

The don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Do so.

I have over a thousand songs on mp3, a DVD player, I listen to contemporary music, and I have a Wii and a DS.

Culture is NOT behind. Considereing I live just south of the border, and not out in the sticks, I'd say I'm pretty advanced.

Hard contacts were originally hand ground glass (way, way back when), then hard plastic. I actually had to wear rigid gas-permeable lenses to stop the progressive degeneration of my eyesight in my youth.

Dude, you are so easy.

It is like having my own personal amusement-puppet.

Push your buttons, and you make peeved-yet-still-fairly-polite defensive noises.

heeheehee...

And you start making typos and errors in usage when addled.

Oh, you're referring to my saying "I live just south of the border"?


I've got news for you: That was not an error. I do, in fact, live just south of the US/Canada border.

I'll leave it to you to figure out how this is possible. Trust me though, it is.

Oh wow. This is extremely interesting, funny and sad. I hope Terry Pratchett never gets like that, at least not before he pumps out a few more books.

I doubt that. I know how we can send him a tiger, though!
