6. I DO NOT understand the fascination with intentional nut shots on the internet.
5. I remember the first time Johnny Depp put on white face makup for Tim Burton.
4. I saw the first version of Avatar when it came out (i.e. Ferngully).

Oh, oh god! I remember all this too. I've started having a lot of 'kids these days' moments lately. We're getting old!
