Something recently made me feel old. After seven years, I bought a new desktop PC from Amazon and then went to several stores (Best Buy, Walmart, Staples) to buy a Wireless internet card (green microchip, short black antenna coming out of the back). None of them had it, and none of the sales associates had any clue what I was talking about except another thirtysomething at Staples. It turned out my desktop came with a small, built-in WiFi card, which I had no idea became standard several years ago.

Here's something: people born after the Second Iraq War are now teenagers. Some of whom are learning about the war in their high school sophomore classes. My generation (those born at the latter end of the Millennials birth years) grew up knowing 9/11 and Iraq to be connected somehow, a la that scene in Family Guy where Peter keeps trying to say that Iraq was responsible for 9/11 whereas Brian has to point out that it was actually a motley crew of Arabians sans Iraqis working for another Saudi guy in the boondocks of Afghanistan/Pakistan*. This generation probably only knows Iraq for ISIS and always connected 9/11 to Afghanistan/Pakistan. I bet some don't even know who Saddam Hussein is. And you can hold a full, logical conversation with someone who wasn't even born when the Great Recession began (and ended)!.

 

Edit: This scene.

More of 6 years have passed, but I finally found it! Or at least so it seems, because it's very similar to what I remember.

 

Time to find "Tia Perdida"/Lost Aunt...

In 3 years, 20-year old adults will have all been born after 9-11.


I always imagined the future as a time of more reason, empathy, and peace, not less. It's time for a change.

Haha. When I started posting on messages boards in 2001, even people born in the 90s were close to nonexistent on them; people right around my age (born 1987/1988) were about the very youngest you found. The first 90s born I came across online was this one 10 year old born in 1991, and it was kind of weird to come across someone born during that time, rather than a high schooler born in the mid 80s or a college kid born during the late 70s.

And here I am, a college kid born in the late 90s.

 

BTW The oldest millennials will soon be 40 years old. The Web will soon be 30. 9/11 was almost 20 years ago.

Interestingly, few to none of the posts on this thread really hit home, I suppose because I'm not actually old (19 next month)--though thinking of myself as a 19 year old will certainly feel strange for a while. I wonder when I'll start to feel old?

Considering my childhood memories involve the Dreamcast and PS2, it blows my mind that the Dreamcast is 20 years old and the PS2 will be 20 in just a couple of years. 

To put that in comparison, the PS2 is older to us than the NES was to it. The NES was first released in Japan in 1983, 17 years before the PS2. The original Xbox is as old as the NES by comparison. The Xbox 360 is almost as old as the SNES was to it.

2000 and 2006 are the best. The worst is 2015 by far.
