I know it's silly, but it made me laugh so hard. :)) So, you guys have any other websites/pictures/videos/whatever that are funny/moving/impressive or just remarkable? For all those little internet things that caught your attention, this is the place. :)

You're Getting Old! (http://you.regettingold.com/)

"When you were born there were approximately 4,842,153,995 other people alive on Earth. There are now about 7,327,149,645 people alive."

I remember learning there were 5 billion people in school. It went up another 5000 in the time it took me to write this.


"The World Wide Web is announced to the public by Tim Berners-Lee (you were 6 years old)"

It didn't become common until I was in high school.


"Start of the 2000s. The Millennium bug fails to cause chaos"

After all the fuss they made about it, too.


"Out of 100,000 people born on the same day as you, approximately 97,256 are still living."

Well, at least this is pretty reassuring.

I still miss you MSN, I can't believe Microsoft forced Skype on all of us.

1st Jan 2000
Start of the 2000s. The Millennium bug fails to cause chaos (you were 4 years old)

And I was blissfully unaware the risk had ever existed to begin with. To be honest, nothing bad happened because a lot of programmers had been working on the actual real problems that could happen for a long time. Not Nuclear Holocaust type of problems, but PCs not changing dates properly could have actually bugged the shit out of some systems. Reading around it does seem Japan got the worst part of the remaining bugs.

Pope Benedict XVI succeeds Pope John Paul II, becoming the 265th pope (you were 10 years old)
