Pure genius, though of course by posting this I am confirming that I am getting old :?

118...

...Things in the video that I remembered or knew about.

Not counting the same item more than once if its repeated in the video.

Wow.. whoever made that must have been born in exactly the same year I was. I can honestly say I remember every. single. one. of those things. Scary. (I'm 46).

Why do middle aged people genuinely believe the dark ages were a better time to grow up in?

I'm not planning on being middle-aged until I'm about 60, thank-you-very-much (possibly upwardly adjustable given appropriate advances in medical science). :wink:

Everyone believes the time they grew up in was a better time to grow up in. Just wait until you're 45 and you'll be moaning about how in your day you had to use real screens and type stuff and that nobody had implants...

They're right. It's been going downhill ever since we climbed out of the trees. Some say even those were a bad idea.

Afraid so. Based on average life expectancy.

Lies, damn lies and statistics... :wink:

For all you know you might be run over by a bus when you're twice the age you are now (so you are middle aged), whereas I might have my brain uploaded into a simulated reality (with 2kg bikes, a harem and calorie free pizza) in 2042 and live until I eventually get bored sometime around the 63rd Century (and so have a few millenia to go before I am middle aged... :D)

But not being from the iPad generation you're surely against that :wink:
