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.

Two for stereo sound (red and white) and one (yellow) for picture. Though there is a slightly better (but still old) version with 5 jacks- 2 for audio+ 3 for picture. TBH I'm not even sure if newer monitors/ TVs even have those anymore. I love my LG monitor because it has a lot of options. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/YPbPr

I don't know where this pic's from, but in France (way back when, in the 90's-00's) only consoles had those, so a lot of peeps wouldn't know, regardless of their age.

Yeah that's really not that old and there are still several current models of televisions that use them. Now if you really want to feel old and stump them show them one of those RF powered adapters that had to be used on some of the TV'S. You know the ones where the power cord was like a foot long.

Admittedly, why would you need to know about all kinds of obsolete cables? Particularly since these were used for different purposed, particularly those with adapters.

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.
