ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
“Ladies, please! There’s enough Kimura for all of you.”
My grandfather was born sometime in 1893. He was an interesting person who got to see us go from horse and buggy to space shuttle.
Austria-Hungary, the Ottoman Empire were still around when they were in puberty. The phonograph consisted of wax cylinders, and they probably didn’t see/hear one until they were already adults. The internal-combustion automobile only existed in a couple of crazy workshops when they were kids. In fact, the only communications technology that had a halfway decent infrastructure was the telegraph.
William McKinley was POTUS!
It boggles the mind.
