Time is what prevents everything from happening at once.

I love stumbling along great new sites/blogs that have frequent updates (ala Photoshop Disasters, Post Secret and The Chive).

Here's a new favorite: Wanna Feel Old?

Tidbits of information seriously date you and change your perspective on how long time has passed. I read some of the entries with my mouth open - it was really that long ago? I especially like it because it isn't stuff that is 50 years old but things that I easily remember and don't realize when they actually debuted.

Some of my recent favorites include:

Savage Garden hasn't released any new material in 10 years. Really? I feel like Truly Madly Deeply is a "newer" song when I hear them, don't you?

Back to the Future 2 is actually set about five and a half years from now. Where's my flying car?!

The Macarena was released 14 years ago. I still know each and every step - heeeey Macarena!

The Matrix came out 10 years ago on April 1. I feel like I just watched that with my father... red pill or blue?
