Me: yeah

    • I was born in 2003, amd its not really fair to say we were "born" with the internet. I never even used the internet or actually saw it used until I was like 7. I never even saw my first iphone in the flesh until 2011. Just because it was around, dosent mean it was being used like it was today.
