I agree the 90's kids stuff is annoying, but what the hell is wrong with the writer of that article?  It's like a 90's kid took a dump in her cereal or something.  Calm down lady.  There is a difference between snark and being angry and bitter.

She sounds old.

I didn't think any of that was invented in the 90s.

You know what ELSE isn't from the 90s?

Yeah. You idiots.

/wait for it...

fark that noise. If I'd had a laptop in the 90s, I totally would've brought it in the shiatter with me. Doom dumps would've been a thing.

The reason all that stuff is about 90s kids is because kids from earlier decades cannot remember their childhoods.  I cannot remember the 80s.

Lucky you.  I've been self-medicating ever since to try to forget.

Not sure what they're getting at?  For example, I grew up in the 1980s.  Rotary phones were a part of my life for awhile.  I associate that with my childhood of the 80s.  Of course, the same goes for people who grew up in the 70s, 60s, 50s, etc.

The real line of demarcation - a huge stake, really - between old generations and the next is the generation growing up with porn at their fingertips.  Internet and cell phones make the current gereration growing up a completely different species.  Growing up after the 1950's and through to 2000-ish we may as well have been clones.

What an angry person, and now I feel angry for having read that.

I think the point is more or less the same as yours. What makes Hide & Seek, for example, something that 90s kids in particular will "get" as opposed to any other generation ever?

90s kids are the reason most of that cool stuff went away.

The phone cord picture in the article...original Ma Bell phone cords were thick and heavy and tended to remain coiled in their original direction.  I suspect kinked phone cords, of inferior quality, probably began to appear in the eighties, but I was still using legacy phones until the nineties.

That author needs to remove that stick out of her ass, it's so 90s.

That article was so bad, it gave me cancer and I died.

Some of these are legitimate gripes but most are just about how the internet became widespread.
