When I can see through people who are completely up themselves and are oblivious to their many flaws and shortcomings. When I don't waste any time engaging bullies hoping they might become a human being.

Oh God, don't tell me things like that. Recently a 25 year co-worker told me they had never heard of Ian Botham, which was more excusable, but still a shock.

I was watching the new Supermarket Sweep the other day, god help me, and the contestants made me feel older than I've ever felt before. They were all about 20, all very shiny and excitable, but anything before about 2010 was ancient history to them.

Some of those contestants make me feel old and I'm still in my 20s

Pop culture always moves on though, you can't blame people for not knowing every insignificant bit of information from every time period that came before them. Probably more so now that people have access to stuff from all over the world instead of having their outlook limited to the same 3/4/5 British TV channels as everyone else.

^ Have parents stopped teaching nursery rhymes to their offspring now?
I remember singing nursery rhymes to my child although I suppose that was a good 13/14 years ago now.


I know I'm getting old when I'm in bed before 9:00pm every night.

When you realise that the optician doing your eye test is probably younger than you are.

^ when you don't understand the message above at all! I have no idea who or what 4chan might be and even though people have tried to explain the concept to me, I am still unable to grasp what a meme is or why it has cultural significance.

well I am not really young or trendy enough to explain this brilliantly. a lot of this cultural stuff started taking off when I was at an age that I was starting to feel I was too old for it. as such the stuff that gets posted that is currently trending I don't really have much of a clue about. there is loads of meta stuff with it which unless you understand the original trend it just seems completely confusing. memes in the early days to me were things that was mainly relatable as they were part of a community and its culture, like an inside joke, I remember them way back in the early mid 00s. but at some point they just became this huge popular thing and expanded beyond that and all of a sudden people were supposed to know what everything beyond that community was referencing and be in on it ,or into it. its not really an inside joke once it becomes hugely popular and it just doesn't interest me to keep up with every single popular community and what it's doing. a lot of the communities the memes originate from I feel too old to be a part of, or culturally it's moved on and I have lost interest.
thats how I feel about it, someone better qualified with experience might be able to explain to you 4chan, I have little experience with it.

Take a tumble down the steps in your home whilst completely sober and hit your head off the wall. I'll be breaking a hip next.
