27 Things and Sayings People Born After 2000 Just Won't Understand

Sometimes we forget just how recently all of our fancy technology came about, but for the vast majority of you born before the year 2000, most of these things and sayings will sound very familiar. The rest of you young folks might have no idea what the heck we're talking about. 

High-speed internet is a luxury we consistently take for granted, even as it gets faster and faster. Like offensive linemen, we only notice the wifi when it messes up, but fail to recognize that it's so much better than it was just a few years ago. And for all of the children here, there was a time when being on the phone seriously impacted the internet. In fact, the reason we call it being "online," is because we used to get internet by tapping into the signal from the phone line. So while mom was gabbing with her friend on the phone, we all had to sit around and twiddle our thumbs instead of surfing the web. 

Additionally, remote controls are a new invention when it comes to televisions. Why do we call it turning the TV on and off? Because in the old days, there was actually a dial we turned to operate the TV. (Of course most of you probably already know this.) Here are 27 things and sayings people born after 2000 just won't understand.
