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.

LOL! Yea. Sometimes the crowd is just a little too young for me. Their drinking the cheapest thing they can to get messed up. I'm sipping my one drink made with titos so I can get up on time the next day and get stuff done.

I'm only in my 30s but I so feel this. In fact I still have my old bw gameboy and original Pokemon red cartridge. And great news for the future gen: my son can't wait for his 9th birthday as he will be old enough to use it! He already plays an emulator version of it on my ancient PC (which he can use!). He outsmarts me on new tech tho

You're holding off until your son is 9 before giving him your Gameboy? I had mine when I was 6.

They have Switch's and 3DS now. I have a 3DS myself and I can say that thing is vastly superior to Game Boys. They didn't even have back-lighting before the Gameboy Advance.

The Gameboy SP was probably the best of them; it could play all the older games, plus it was the first one with a backlight (and not those dreadful phone-cord plug in lights).

Why? Children can play those same games, or similar ones with more colours. Kirby is pretty classic and universal.

All I ever had was the OG which I didn't get until the color one came out since the price went down. I had two games, Tetris and football training camp. Life was great.

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.
