^This was the picture which I thought to resemble Rin and Satan's conversation Tardar mimicked xDD because in Assassin's Creed 3, the protagonist's father is also evil duche who tries to make his son fall in controveraial ways~

I saw that one on one of the BestAMVsOnline channels.
It's so amazing! Must've taken such a long time! Very creative, too~

Are there actually 101 anime in there?

Because that would triple my respect for the guy/gal.

I counted 59 on their list

But yep, I've seen a few go over the 40 anime thing, and they're all fantastic

If anyone is using Google today, you should press the play button in the logo. It's a pretty fun little animation.

You're Getting Old!

"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.

Your star sign is Aquarius. Your birth stone is Amethyst.

That actually explains a couple things...

Quote
When you were born there were approximately 5,736,167,293 other people alive on Earth.
There are now about 7,327,201,167 people alive.

To think newspapers when I was in Elementary School were all over the place about what might happen when we reached 6 billion.

Quote
1st Mar 1995
The first search engine service Yahoo! is founded (you were 11 days old)

When I tell people I was born with the internet, I'm not joking.

Quote
22nd Jun 1995
Quake, a first-person shooter video game is released (you were 4 months old)
There were so many good shooters as I grew up.
Quote
1st Sep 1995
The DVD, an optical disc computer storage media format, is announced (you were 6 months old)

VHS was used over here for almost a decade more until de DVD finally took over.

Quote
10th Feb 1996
Chess computer "Deep Blue" defeats world chess champion Garry Kasparov for the first time (you were 11 months old)

People made a fuss about this for years.

Quote
10th Mar 1997
Buffy the Vampire Slayer premieres (you were 2 years old)

I think they still replay it on TV. Now this one does make me feel old.

Quote
1st Jul 1997
The United Kingdom hands sovereignty of Hong Kong to the People's Republic of China (you were 2 years old)

I remember the Discovery Channel would later on make a documentary about it.

Quote
31st Aug 1997
Diana, Princess of Wales, dies in a car crash (you were 2 years old)
5th Sep 1997
Mother Teresa, Albanian missionary and humanitarian, dies (aged 87) (you were 2 years old)

Whoa, slow down, I was alive when these two died?
Quote
22nd Jul 1999
The first version of MSN Messenger is released by Microsoft (you were 4 years old)

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

Quote
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.

Quote
15th Jan 2001
Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, launches on the Internet (you were 5 years old)

Thanks God.

Quote
11th Sep 2001
9/11 terror attacks on NYC's World Trade Center and Pentagon (you were 6 years old)

And the conspiracy theories around it still live.
Quote
19th Mar 2003
The Iraq War begins with the invasion of Iraq by the U.S. and allied forces (you were 8 years old)

I recall something about that they intended for it to not even last a year.

Quote
4th Feb 2004
Facebook is founded (you were 8 years old)

Some things should never see the light.

Quote
22nd Sep 2004
The first episode of 'Lost' is aired on ABC (you were 9 years old)

This fucking series, you go anywhere without bumping into someone who was into it.

Quote
19th Apr 2005
Pope Benedict XVI succeeds Pope John Paul II, becoming the 265th pope (you were 10 years old)

I remember such a fuss because the cardinals spent like 3 days voting before they took a decision... and then the guy quitted.

Quote
23rd Apr 2005
YouTube is launched: the first video is uploaded at 20:27 (you were 10 years old)

I remember reading opinions about how the site wouldn't be successful.

Quote
15th Jul 2006
Twitter is launched (you were 11 years old)

And I still don't get its point.
Quote
24th Aug 2006
The International Astronomical Union demotes Pluto which is no longer regarded as a planet (you were 11 years old)

Never forget.

Quote
21st Jul 2007
J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is released and sells over 11 million copies in the first 24 hours (you were 12 years old)

Still not over this fucking book.
Quote
Out of 100,000 people born on the same day as you, approximately 98,630 are still living.
