@tntrav44:  hahaha yeah, I also feel old when I have no clue who the people on the front of magazine covers are, now. I know Zac Efron, that’s about it.

Holy cow, that’s bad. And that reminds me — I read something back in April about all kinds of teenagers who didn’t even know that the Titanic was a real event. They thought it was just a movie.

You are not that old!  that’s just them being oblivious, I mean, it’s not like he’s a “has been”, he’s still acting in current movies!!  Kids these days!

@Gemstone:   On the flip side, I know a woman older than me who thought the entire movie was a true story. She was really upset to learn it isn’t!

I was taking a general education course during my last semester (this past semester) and I’m considered an “older student,” anyway (ripe old age of 26), so I was amongst 17-18-19-year-olds.

They didn’t know the following:

Back to the Future movies (be still my Michael J. Fox loving heart)

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

– TV show Friends

The Shawshank Redemption (Someone said “Tim Robbins who?”)

Mrs. Doubtfire

Lethal Weapon movies

Johnathan Taylor Thomas (forget about using JTT!)

Oh, I can go on and on. I really cried inside when I saw that these kids were born between 1993-1995.

@BetterSherm:  That all hurts me. I’m currently working my way through the Wonder Years series, I don’t even want to think of their reaction to that 😉

@tntrav44:  Uhhh Shutter Island?! They have to know that!!!

@les105:  Me too! Whenever I look at the most popular Instagram photos or see some Teen People or whatever I get so confused. I have no idea who any of these young “stars” are anymore.

I realized I was old when I invited a few grad school classmates to an 80s club to see Lisa Lisa perform.  They didn’t know who that was or recognize her songs when I [tried] to sing them.  They are all in their 20s, how could they not know Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam?!

This reminds me of when I was at my friends house and her little daughter (7) went “mum I’m bored, play with me….” I said why don’t you go and watch a video.

She said. What’s a video!!!!

Apparently moderm day children don’t know their video’s from their DVDs!

I felt about 100!
