There is an ongoing (and it seems like a never-ending) discussion between the millennial generation kids and baby boomers. While the older folks are trying to prove that us young people are ruining the economy and basically the entire world, we millennials keep fighting back by blaming baby boomers for any minor inconvenience we stumble upon during the difficult period of growing up. Basically, both generations blame each other for everything that is wrong in this world, and we're not sure if there's any way to stop them. And while this fight about generation differences keeps evolving, a new, fresher and younger generation is slowly growing up only to find a new way to ruin the world that we live in. The so-called 'generation z' or 'Genz' are people that were born from the mid-1990s to mid-2000s. And even though the age difference between Genz and the millennial age might be small, there are some things that millennials grew up with that Gen z kids have no clue about. Bored Panda compiled a list of all the random things that the younger kids from different generation don't understand, and before you check it out, be careful, it might make you feel extremely old.

And your final hopes were killed when the file looked like it was downloaded successfully, but when you try to open it, it gives you error, or appears as literally missing some parts.

Napster the only application that had a direct influence on the space-time continuum. Sometimes 5 minutes would take 5 minutes but most times it was more like 29 days.

WTH were you downloading for 17 hours?

Nubmaeme
Community Member

Dial-up was incredibly slow and, what took hours back then, now takes only minutes with today's systems. And anything could interrupt the download - someone picking up the phone receiver, an incoming call, someone trying to get online on another computer on the same system, or even a slight power fluctuation. For those reasons and more, people didn't download very much. They usually got a copy of what they wanted on a floppy (see first picture in this article) and simply installed it that way.

Bet whatever you want that she knows pretty well Justin Timberlake still. Boy bands are merely a launchpad for artists, if they are good enough to continue. East 17 were way better anyway...lol

Explain it like this: Imagine that every time an app crashed, you would have to turn off your phone, blow into it, then restart. Also imagine that when you downloaded an app, it was actually finished, and didn't require a patch twice a week to fix all of the bugs and add unnecessary updates.
