    Same. It was a good read though. Getting old sucks for everyone, but I can’t help but feel like we grew up in a particularly magical time where you can remember dial phones all the way through smart phones. It kind of set the wow factor baseline a little high. I don’t know if other people in history have had a similar experience, but I kinda doubt it.

      Maybe, or maybe in another 30 years people will just be commenting how nice it was to be alive during the birth of the metaverse and giant corporations.

      Probably not though.

      Someone born in 1875 could have gone from gas lamps and horses to light bulbs, refrigerators, and cars by the time they were 50. May be comparable?
