You were born too late to explore new lands. You were born too early to explore space. You were born on time to explore the internet, amirite?

One day I'll tell my grandchildren about a time when the internet was uncensored and users roamed free within its borders like majestic lions across the grasslands. I'll tell them how we had to type things out instead of using the neural links implanted in our brain stems, how we had to scroll down through dozens of menus, both ways, with a stalled connection to find what we wanted, and I'll remind them that children these days are so ungrateful. I'll tell them how we had programs that connect you to another user across the world and let you talk about your different experiences, and when they ask me if I ever saw anyone's dick between the philosophical debates I'll laugh and find a clever way to avoid answering, because the elderly are entitled to their secrets. I'll complain about my carpel tunnel and advanced arthritis in both thumbs, and at thanksgiving I'll remind them to be thankful for mind upload text. I'll keep my dear old friend, my laptop, on a shelf beside the grandfather clock, where it will gather dust because it's been broken for years and the parts are no longer made, and the children will stare at it in wonder and marvel, "The screen really does fold up!"

You have to let the article ferment so we get that robust flavor that we are looking for.

@Wait for at least a few days before you copy from Memebase.

Why would you wait until no one is talking about it... that's like watching the new epic film two years after it came out... it will no longer be exciting talking about it.

I fear the time when our grandchildren want us to tell them stories about our adolescence and childhood...
"So yeah, that whole summer pretty much I just commented and read on amirite.net. Oh my god, what a great website that was."
"You didn't hang out with anyone?"
"What? I hanged out with the internet, that's how it was done back in the 2010s, you see."

We're not too late to explore Skyrim.

Honestly, be original.

@Lord_Wakko Honestly, be original.

Said after multiple comments had previously stated it was from a different source.

POTD fail.

Well, the actual post is a fail. I love the saying.

Maybe she stopped for a while because everyone was making fun of her.

This is bullshit. This post has multiple people saying it's from memebase, yet it's not made anon. But my POTD gets anon'd. That's fucking stupid.

I'll explore your internet

DarthJaders avatar DarthJader Yeah You Are +2Reply

The internet has Google Earth, thus allowing me to explore far off lands, and the internet is often called cyberspace, so in that context, exploring it is actually exploring space. Beat the system, best generation to be born in!

Saying that a lot of people on this site are 16-23 I don't see how we were born to early to explore space when they had already sent people to space before some of us were born

I think OP means going to other planets, galaxies, etc. I wouldn't exactly count going up to the space station as exploring space, and we sent a grand total of 12 people to the moon almost 40 years ago. Woop de doo.
