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.

Heck, I remember the big floppy disc. I remember how excited I was when my dad upgraded our computer from 4 megabytes of ram to 8!

My Dad used an old Mac to use CAD for drawing Suburb Design , Sewage ,roads and such using them to work from home. He and I were having a few beers at a friends also with the same computer for work purposes and I had a huge argument with them that I hated computers and any idea of them and that they would one day destroy the world by stealing Jobs and peoples minds ,,well Dad said I was rude and Gordon said I was stupid and paranoid and should see a doctor ,,I nearly clocked him , got kicked out then fought with dad on the 1.5km walk home,, I was 21 and it was 1987,, I remember him getting a huge printer and a Mac11 ?? in around 1995 ,Dad died 2002 aged 53 from Leukemia so missing out on seeing how computers have and still are ruining the lives of Mankind ,Womankind and Children and of course Me being RIGHT ,,, I'm now 53 ( he was my step dad from when I was 5 ) BUT real dad died at 54 , anyways ,,Miss you dad and more than likely be seeing you soon : )

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.
