YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2009 when...


1. You accidentally enter your PIN on the microwave.


2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.


3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.


4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.



5.Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses.


6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries.


7. Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen


8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't even have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it.



10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee


11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : ) :)


12 You're reading this and nodding and laughing.


13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message.


14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list.


15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list

And how exactly do you know this article isn't original, sir?

Hmm...

Note the keyword "sometimes". For reasons of privacy and trying to protect what little sanity I might be thought to have, I'm not even going to try to provide a link to my laptop's inbox (my source for this thread).

I've read the exact same thing 2 years ago, titled as "You know you live in 2007 when"

X- Your tv images freeze every 20 seconds... because it is the digital era...

Y- Your phone calls have bad quality because everything is digital... and you wish you could have the same quality you had when things were analog

Z- the light bulb in your room flickers and makes noises like a beetle flying...

you know you live in 2009 when you look to calendar and notice it is 2009.

You know you live in 2009 cause if you don't then you should see a doctor (neurologist, psychiatrist).

We don't know that we are living in 2009. For all we know, it could have been planted in our brains that this year is 2009.

Years, as far as numbers go at least, don't really exist.

Imagine people 2010 years ago saying "You know you live in year 1 BC when..."

I know about emailing people near by. I email people working on the same floor as me all the time. The surface area of each floor of this building is very small too, as in you can get to anyone's desk from anywhere within 30 seconds.


Years, as far as numbers go at least, don't really exist.

They're a way of referring to something that does exist (unless you want to start talking about whether time is linear or not, but let's not do that). It's similar to calling someone by name. They exist in that sense.

Offtopic anyway.

Online before coffee?
That is just WRONG.
