Wtf!?

19661991_craigcarry
I’m loving the primitive look of 1991 Internet.

For some weird reason, I’m fascinated by time comparison stuff, like this.

1991 (the year my son was born) is 25 years ago.  If you go the same number of years back from 1991, it would be 1966.  o_O

If you’re like me and can’t get enough of this sort of stuff (not everyone likes it, probably because it’s a bit disturbing and reminds us of aging and mortality), don’t miss these two articles.

It’s 2015, and You’re In the Future

If you love comparisons of far grander periods of time, and don’t mind the possibility of your brain exploding, read this:

  1. Wow,…The Beatles Revolver was released in 66′.

    The greatest lyrics and melody lines were simply and were outstanding because of the contrasts in the songs.

    Lennon was dark and deep (Cerebral)
    McCartney was upbeat and happy

  2. Yes I love the way time plays out, backwards and forwards. My son, also 1991, and 1966 was cool for me. The Chevrolet Chevelle was born that year. In 1969 our math teacher, Miss Hull, who was at best in her late 20’s asked us to do a math problem. Now imagine Dick Tracy’s watch. Science Fiction at the time, a reality today. Back to the math problem. Teacher wanted us to figure out how old we would be in the year 2000. That boggled my young mind. Nobody could live that long! When she came by my desk, looking at my answer she laughed so loud it scared the class. I wrote on my paper in big letters ..

      2000: “Nobody can live that long.” LOL!
      I remember when the Prince song “Party like it’s 1999” came out in the 80s–it seemed so far in the future.
      Oh, and I was 7 years old in 1966. It seems like a thousand years ago.
