You know you are a Generation Y when...


1. You have some sort of p2p program and think downloading music, movies, and etc. for free is ok.

2. You have multiple trophies and ribbons that say you are a winner.

3. You tell someone who ask you a question in which you don't know the answer to go "Google" it.

4. You can't live without your cellphone and computer.

5. Your parents turn to you for help when it comes to technical digital stuff.

6. You deem yourself popular by having a lot of virtual friends.

7. You have no idea how to mail ANYTHING in the real world.

8. You become impatient of waiting for more than 5 seconds for a web page to load.

9. You have carpal tunnel.

10. You tell a clerk at a store that you can get a certain product for half the price on ebay/craiglist.


Feel free to help make this list grow. :happy:

You know you're a Gen-Y-er when the decision that schools in your district would be closed because of H1N1 was made during 3rd period, and EVERY SINGLE FRACKING kid in the school knew before the end of that class when it was actually announced to everyone -_-
On this day it was also made evident that the school's policy of not allowing the use of cell phones during class was not stopping anyone...

You know you're a Generation Y when you keep a back-up text message from your father stating that your grandmother is in the hospital just in case the teacher decides to take your cellphone, true story.

When you're the first generation of Englishmen not to be bred to hate the French and Germans.
And you have the nerve t call yourself an Englishman? What tosh, you must be having a laugh. The French and Germans are concentrated evil I tell you, old sport! Have you learnt NOTHING from Dad's Army?

Tally ho, I think I can see a fox. What larks.

When this is pretty much the only world you know.
I’ve got a computer, fits the palm of my hand
somehow the satellites know just where I am
I must be paranoid or crazy I guess
to tell you the truth it scares me to death

I don’t leave the ground cause I’m too scared to fly
I don’t check the mail cause I don’t wanna die
I’m sinkin fast and I don’t mean maybe
Lord help us please, the whole world’s gone crazy
the whole world’s gone crazy


I wake up in the morning, turn on the TV
I got’s to get my daily dose of misery
ignore my family before I head off to work
I hate my job cause my boss is a jerk
there’s a man on the corner and he’s carrying a sign
he’s there everyday so I don’t pay him no mind
he’s got a wife and a new born baby
Lord help us please, the whole world’s gone crazy
the whole world’s gone crazy


There’s preacher on TV on a set made of gold
he said send some money and he’ll pray for my soul
if I send enough then God might save me
Lord help us please, the whole world’s gone crazy
the whole world’s gone crazy

When you believe piercings and tattoos should never be a strike against someone.

When you consider learning to use a computer on the same level as learning how to talk, or read.

If you have never used a manual camera. (excluding photography hobbyist)

You always have an electronic gadget on you or with you, (cell phone, mp3 player, etc.)

I hope your teacher is swift enough to look at the date of the text. I also hope your teacher is an INTJ. :)

...your garage/spare room includes a variety of consoles and games that superseded each other in close succession.
Eg: NES, Super NES, Nintendo '64, Game Cube
Eg: Gameboy, Gamboy Advance, Gameboy Mirco, DS Fat (original), DS Lite (hence "fat")
Eg: Playstation, PS2, PS3 ...well, you get the idea :laughing:

I was watching an old video tape the other month, a live pumpkins concert from 96 recorded off the TV and there is an advert on there for the first playstation. GOD! the graphics were so shit!! And I remember being blown away by it at the time. I shouldn't sound so surprised, people will be saying that about the PS3, xbox or whatever the rage is these days before long! [/digression]. >_>

Hmm... Yah... that being without a cell phone part.... I guess that includes me since I had a total meltdown over my iPhone turning into a brick this weekend. So I said screw Apple and their "You'll have to buy a new one" BS... I went out and got a Motorola Backflip... And actually like it a lot more. :laughing:

Weird, most of the English (Cornish) I know hate the French... but not Germans. They're all ages 20-25, too.
Oh, most of the people I know hate both, its just that the Government tried to make us nice towards continentals. They, er, failed.

There is a vague image of what walkmans, cassette tapes, VCR's, and video tapes should look like.

You blew on the game cartridge in order to get it to work on your original Nintendo.

You can't believe how you ever derived pleasure from playing with the big, honking, black-and-white Gameboy.

Batteries? Wth? What do you mean I can't recharge my electronics with a USB cable?

Power Rangers: those were the days...:laughing:

Pokemon vs. Digimon, who would win?

You throw the world's worst hissy fit if your internet connection is down.

Who needs TV when you've got Youtube?

You were a fan of TLC, Spice Girls, Backstreet Boys, or N*Sync.

Here's a large difference that I've noticed between us digital natives and other folk:

My first instinct is to look something up on the internet, not to ask someone else.
Also,
I've never asked "Ok, well tell me how to do this" for something that I know I can look up.
I occasionally tell people "I'm busy, Google it" when I'm not in the mood for giving a half-hour speech on the history of fuel injection and spark plug timing systems in boats, and how the knowledge can be applied to feeding your cat. Actually, that's an INTJ thing.

Another thing:
You know you're from Generation Y if you've ever gone on a walk with your WiFi signal strength meter, iPod, or laptop to determine whether or not the internet being down is isolated to your carrier, cables, or what. True story, it's what I spent an hour doing this morning. Turns out a fiber-optic cable was cut in another city.
