Feeling Old Yet? You Will When You Read These Facts About the Class of 2018
Every year you can find some depressing list of things that the kids of today are too young to remember. Today I found a new one on Buzzfeed called 58 Extremely Disappointing Facts About The Class Of 2018, the kids who will be high school freshman in the fall. Check out some of the highlights while you contemplate your mortality and the crushing realization you are a grownup.
The class of 2018 was born in 2000 or 2001.
-They were born the same year the Playstation 2 and Gameboy Advance came out.
-Eminem…[or] one of the guys from Hanson could be their dad.
-They don’t understand where the shutter sound your phone makes when it takes a picture comes from.
-You can say with 100% confidence that you have MP3s older than they are.
-If you asked what brings the boys to the yard, they’d have no idea how to answer that question.
-They’ve always had GPS and have never had to look up directions and print them out.
-They’ve never had a late-night AIM chat interrupted by someone yelling “get off the internet, I need to use the phone!”
-They have only been alive for three Harry Potter books.
-And chances are they have never burned a CD.
-They’re as old as Monster’s Inc, Osmosis Jones, The Emperor’s New Groove, Jimmy Neutron, and Spy Kids.

Well…that’s great. I need to find me a quiet place, sit down and sob. Or, maybe I’ll try to recapture my youth with one of those 90′s commercial compilation videos. Yea, that’s the ticket (80′s SNL? Anybody? John Lovitz. No, OK)
