Adults Share What Inconveniences From Their Past Millennials Will Never Have To Face
Adults Share What Inconveniences From Their Past Millennials Will Never Have To Face[rebelmouse-image 18344955 is_animated_gif=
There have always been generational differences in society, but with the fast pace advancements in technology in today's world the differences are more drastic than ever. Millennials in particular will never understand the struggles and joys of pre-social media life. What are they really missing out on?
What inconvenience will people born after 2000 never fully appreciate?

Watching the new episode of a hot television show on the same day at the same time as everyone else, with no pausing for potty breaks- that's what commercials were good for- and no rewind if you missed something.
Human interaction has taken a turn[rebelmouse-image 18344966 is_animated_gif=
Not sure if inconvenience or blessing but not having constant contact. Even when we had pagers you had to find a pay phone. No social media so talking to your friends and visiting them was the only way to know what was happening in their lives. Photo albums getting pulled out of the closet to show people your vacation or wedding. Or when calling a friend/family house after 6pm and them not answering bringing concern if things were ok or were they ignoring you. No email, no texting, some of did not have answering machines. It's very surreal to me how personal contact has changed in the world. As a result I think these 'conveniences' are the main cause of people impatience.
Privacy was a privilege[rebelmouse-image 18344967 is_animated_gif=

You want movie times? You had to know your theater's phone number and call (from a landline/payphone). Or look in the local newspaper. Or go to the actual theater.
You want good seats for a new popular movie? Better go early and wait in line.
It's crazy that I bought tickets for Force Awakens months before it opened with my seats selected all on my phone while pooping at work.
Episode 1 was an all day experience. My friend and I ditched class. Sat in front of the theater at 8 am to buy tickets. Bought our tickets at the box office when it opened. Sat in line to get good seats til midnight. We were 3rd in line. Still wouldn't trade those times though.

This is an old one, before my time, but there was no magic wand that allowed you to correct anything you typed. You had to white it out, put the paper back in, line it all up, and retype the letter, then move everything to return where you left off. Didn't matter if you typed slow or whatever, mistakes would happen and if you didn't want to look like an idiot that didn't proofread, you did it every single time.
I can't imagine it. Nowadays words correct themselves if the software you're using has the ability to 'guess' what you're trying to say. Back then things were basically upgraded versions of the printing press, making marks when you decided to manipulate the mechanism it was attached to. As I type this my phone has corrected at least 30 spelling mistakes automatically and this probably took a minute and a half to type out. If the mistakes I made just stayed as they were it'd probably be, what, 20 minutes on a typewriter minimum?
It f**** me up just thinking about it.
I love unconventional movies and storytellers.
I live for the times when artists and creatives take big chances.
Sometimes those chances pay off and other times... it's a travesty of life.
Yes, I'm dramatic, and so is movie-making!
The WTF aspect.
That is usually born out of big chances.
Whether that moment leaves people thrilled, shocked, or disgusted... that's in the subjectiveness of it all.
It's always a gamble to create.
Redditor MightGuy420x wanted to share thoughts about some of the movies that left our brains and souls puzzled, so they asked:
"What movie had you saying 'What the f**k' the most while watching?"
Movies leave me aghast more often than not.
And endings are never easy.
"Swiss Army Man."
"Isn't 'What the f**k?' also the last spoken line in the film?"

"Yeah lol, literally. It made me laugh so hard because I'd been saying that for the entire two hours I was sitting on my couch watching it. Never saw that coming from Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe is a strange man lol."
A Midnight Opening
"The most audible 'What the f**k?' I have ever heard from an entire movie theater audience was actually from Pixar."
"It was their short film Bao, I think before Incredibles 2. A woman makes a little baby out of dumpling ingredients, there is a cute montage of them together, and then she eats it without warning."
"It was a midnight opening so the audience was all adults, and yeah nobody saw that coming."
Weird but Funny
"Sorry to Bother You."
"I saw this in theaters having absolutely no idea where it was heading (like everyone I think). I must’ve walked out to pee at exactly the wrong time, when I came back I had to double-check it was still the right theater."
"I freaking love this movie and you're exactly right. There was a point I went from like 'This is a weird one, but it's funny' to 'What in the actual f**k is happening?'"
"What's even better is if you go back and watch, they led you right up until that point. They're always hinting at it, but the protagonist makes everything about him and I think that's why it just hits you out of nowhere."
"I feel bad for introducing this movie incorrectly to some friends. I really thought it was going to be some kind of science-fiction drama. And then Adrian Brody mated with it."
"Well, that's easy the thing he was f**king was a human-animal hybrid that he raised from birth like a daughter and was made from his girlfriend's DNA the hybrid later changes from female to male and attacks the before-mentioned girlfriend which I guess is technically its own mother."
"We had to refund AT LEAST 30% of the admissions for this movie every day when I worked in a theater. People were leaving the cinema pissed off because of this movie."

That movie makes no sense at all.
Someone explain it to me!
"When Roger Ebert reviewed this movie, he gave it zero stars, saying such a movie could exist only in a universe with no light in it whatsoever, and hence there could be no stars in his review of it."
PhuckingDupedOver It Rose GIF by HULUGiphy
"Abducted in Plain Sight."
"My mom actually went to school with Jan and her mom was friends with my grandma. I’ve tried to get my mom to watch the show but she has refused because 'I have already had more than enough Jan Broberg in my life.'"
"From what my mom said, I’d take everything the family claims happened (especially Jan’s story about what happened while she was kidnapped) with a grain of salt because Jan was apparently super melodramatic even before the abduction."
"That said, I found the show to be less shocking than most people because their naïveté is incredibly unsurprising for a Mormon family in a small town in the 70s."
"Seriously had no idea what I was getting into. A couple and a dude bailed out of the theater when I saw it."
"The Lobster made me realize I had an unconventional taste for films. It’s my favorite film of all time next to Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I tried to make my friends watch it, and they all would bail out mid-film."
"This. What utter f**king bats*it crazy horseshit this movie was."
"'Being John Malkovich' is just one weird thing happening after the other, giving you very little time to process it."
"I got to see an advanced screening of Being John Malkovich. I knew absolutely nothing about it going in. It was the first time I was ever left so completely speechless by a movie in such a good way."
"I was already in love with the movie before the portal was even introduced. It could have just been a really weird series of set pieces revolving around those bizarre characters interacting in that weird half-floor and puppetry recitals and I would have been happy. Then it gets all metaphysical and kooky... And it did it all so perfectly."
"Cats. I was just constantly saying 'What the f**k?' under my breath as I watched it in theaters. I honestly don't remember much of it. It was so incoherent in tone and execution, and weird that it just feels like a fever dream in my memory."

So many movie WTFs for me are about... "How did THIS find funding?!"
Thank God for vodka.
Many of us find scientific facts fascinating, and for good reason, but like all subjects, there are aspects of scientific study that are positively disturbing and can keep us up late at night.
When asked, Reddit of course had an endless supply of factoids to haunt their fellow Redditors.
Redditor The_D1ngb4t asked:
"What scientific fact scares the absolute s**t out of you?"
The Carrington Event
"I don’t remember what it was called, but there was an event in the 1800s caused by solar activity where telegraphs operated on their own without power and I think caused minor damage."
"Should such a solar event happen again, it would destroy all of our internet network capabilities and other electrical gear. Anyone know what I’m referring to?"
"Edited to Add: The Carrington Event."
"When the atom bomb was being created, the leading scientists associated with the project at the time had to calculate the flammability of the Earth's atmosphere in order to ensure that detonating the bomb would not cause the atmosphere to combust."
"At the time when the first atom bomb was detonated, these scientists still had not answered this question, meaning that we legitimately just crossed our fingers and hoped we wouldn't set the f**king planet on fire. Humans are stupid."
"Space just in general. Or that bit about the Higgs Field not being in true equilibrium and that returning to it would break everything as we know it."
"The fact that your body can have advancing cancer and you wouldn’t know it sometimes. My father-in-law's brother was walking through his kitchen and he fainted and hit his head on the counter. He was rushed to the hospital and they ran tests."
"He had stage four pancreatic cancer and his body was already in the endgame. He was dead within two months of diagnosis. That shit terrifies me and it can happen to anyone."
"Happened to my five-year-old daughter. For a week she had a nose bleed on and off that the doctors weren't concerned about since kids get nose bleeds for various reasons."
"Then she collapsed a week later and was gone three hours after getting to the hospital. She had leukemia. I have two other children and I'm terrified something could happen to them too."
"Scientific literature’s conclusion on Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, in general, is that the diseases start decades before the first obvious symptoms and that we need to treat them at this stage."
"When you exhibit obvious symptoms, it’s too late, your brain is already mush."
"If you get diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at 65, you had the disease since your early 40s at least. And you experienced very mild symptoms but didn’t notice them. And your brain fought like hell to compensate for the deficit."
"When you get diagnosed, your brain is already very severely damaged and will never recover from the deficit."
The Suddenness of It
"The fact that we can just get a blood clot and die and not realize anything was up. The human body has so many ways of just suddenly dying and it's terrifying."
A Distinct Possibility
"I'm not afraid of suddenly dying. I'm afraid of suddenly being severely disabled."
"My cousin was always riding horses. She was very lucky to have the access to them that she did. She was riding with a less experienced friend. The friend’s horse took off and she gave chase to try and save her friend."
"Whatever happened, she took a fall and was paralyzed when she was maybe 22 or 23 years old and lived in a facility for the next 12 years until she died a very early death."
"She couldn’t speak or communicate hardly. Just 12 years of hardship. She had to rediscover and grieve her father's death all over again, not to mention grieve her own life. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone."
The Boogeyman of Medicine
"Prion diseases exist."
"From my understanding of CJD, or Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (it's the boogeyman of my career field), it's something you contract, but it takes about 10 years for any symptoms to appear, and either way it's impossible to do anything about. So eerie, honestly."
"It's genetic. You won't know that you have it. When you know that you have it, there is zero recourse. It will eat holes in your brain and you'll die."
"That, and Fatal Familial Insomnia, also genetic. One of your parents woke up one day and couldn't fall back asleep until they died, having suffered rapidly progressing neural degeneration."
"And it tends to set in around mid-life, so you spend every day waking up knowing it might be the last time. You find it hard to build relationships and have a family because you know it's not a matter of if, only when. But you know you're not gonna see your golden years."
No Floating Here
"You can get non-buoyant water."
"In wastewater treatment plants, they aerate the water so the bacteria breaking down the poo has plenty of oxygen. Due to the introduced air, the water density is low enough that a human body (or most any object that would normally float) will go straight to the bottom."
"Rabies. You can have it and never know until it decides it's time. And then you'll die terribly."
"That one day I will die. I don't know why, but sometimes at night, as I'm falling asleep, I suddenly think of this and it freaks me out. Like, start feeling super anxious."
"Just know that once you die, you could either stop existing, which isnt painful, or you could discover a whole different world."
Why Can't We See or Touch It? ...Or Can We?
"The metaphysical aspect of consciousness."
"Where is consciousness? What is it? When does it really end? Where does it go when we die? When we sleep? How does it occupy our entire being without being physically present?"
"We are quite literally the universe experiencing itself, in a fragile little bubble on a mote of dust in a sunbeam."
"And yet, what exactly are we?"
"That’s the sort of question that keeps me up at night. I don’t fear death, I don’t fear world annihilation, but I am deeply unsettled by the mere experience of being aware."
"Methanol contains very little carbon, so when it burns, it's basically invisible."
"Can you imagine death by burning alive, and no one can see the flames, so they can't put them out?"
C. Difficile Infection
"Every time you use an antibiotic, even for something mild like strep throat or bronchitis or traveler’s diarrhea, you technically could get C. Difficile infection from your wiped out gut flora. And that could end up a lingering, resistant infection, that leads to colectomy or fecal transplant."
"Antibiotics are scary. And there’s a reason doctors only want to prescribe them if absolutely needed."
"Less 'scary' and more 'mind-numbingly depressing' is the Dark Era of the universe."
"When all the star fuel is gone (and it will be) and all the white dwarves have gone cold and dark (and they will) and all the black holes have evaporated away into elementary particles (and they will), the universe will be a cold, dark place..."
As fascinating as science is, there are some truly dark, troubling corners that we can linger over for too long.
While it's good to be knowledgeable of these possibilities, we need to remember the lighter aspects of life, as well.
People Share The Tell-Tale Signs That Someone's In A Toxic Relationship
Any kind of romantic relationship takes work.
Once the honeymoon phase ends, both partners involved realize that if they're going to stay for the long haul, they must equally put in the effort.
However, not all relationships are built the same. Some have no hope in salvaging a relationship that is never meant to be.
So how do you avoid an eventual heartbreak after so much investment of time?
Redditor icyqueen999999 got some helpful hints after asking:
"What is a dead giveaway of a toxic relationship?"
Trust was severely lacking in these relationships.
Proof Of Fidelity
"My 57 year old colleague constantly has to send videos and pics of him working to his wife."
Speaking From Experience
"My ex always tried to make me do this. F'king obnoxious. Guess who was eventually found out to never be where he said he was and was sneaking around instead? Lol."
"It's not only that but if you make someone spend all their energy proving that they are faithful, they don't have the mental capacity to even consider their partner might be the unfaithful one."
Submitting Detailed Records
"I found out the other week that my buddy has to send his girlfriend detailed notes with timestamps of legitimately everything he does while hanging out with the guys..."
"9:14 went down to the kitchen for a glass or water 9:15 stopped to pet the cats before heading upstairs 9:18 made it back upstairs and sat on the right side of the couch."
Both parties involved have to benefit from a relationship. These examples reflect ones that don't.
Path Of Least Resistance
"One partner always gets their way."
"For me, it was 'easier' to bend over backward than to deal with the whining and complaining if I stood my ground. Easier is in quotes because it was only easier in the short term - long term made life hell."
Mental And Physical Toll
"Fine, whatever you want, just like always, whatever you want."
"Whatever I want? It's never whatever I want. When I wanted to see Stomp, and you wanted to see Wicked, what did we see?"
"We saw Wicked."
"When I said that I wanted to have kids, and you said, you wanted me to have a vasectomy, what did I do? And then when you said that you might want to have kids and I wasn't so sure, Who had the vasectomy reversed? And then when you said you defintely didn't want to have kids, who had it reversed back? Snip snap! Snip snap! Snip snap! I did. You have no idea the physical toll, that three vasectomies have on a person. And I bought this condo to fill with children."
Failure In The Long Term
"Sadly, in these sorts of relationships, the person who cares the least has the most power. You could bend over backwards trying to please the other person, and it might keep them around in the short term, but it doesn't change the fact they don't really respect you. You know in your gut that if you ever actually stood your ground on any issue instead of giving in to them, things would end there and then."
It appears the love has vacated the scene a long time ago.
"If someone is always talking crap about their partner whenever they are not together."
"I've seen this far too many times, it's always ended in total disaster withing a few years at most."
"Ugh, yup. I've listened to so many people complain about their partners and I just wonder: WHY are y'all together!? If I get a chance to talk about my bf, you can bet I'll start dishing out everything I love about him."
"Lack of trust and constant fights."
"I once read that contempt is the #1 sign of a relationship on its deathbed. When partners don’t respect each other, it sets the stage for every other bad thing."
Breaking up is hard to do, as the song goes.
But when a relationship has been on the rocks and has turned unbearable to the point of resenting one another, there's no point in staying with the toxic situation.
Acknowledging the red flags and willingly staying in a miserable situation is not healthy.
There is always something, or someone, better out there.
All of us have found ourselves forced to lie at some point in our lives.
In most cases, it's been just a little white lie that didn't lead to any serious repercussions and may have even spared the feelings of others.
Other people's lies, however, end up causing unexpected ripple effects, making an already bad situation even worse.
Of course, lying is something of a gift, as some people's lies are as clear to detect as the nose on their faces.
While some people are so good at lying, they manage to have everyone fooled for the rest of their lives.
Some of these lies are so spectacular, that they've even earned a place in the history books.
"What is the most successful lie in history?"
They Couldn't Detect It For Years
"Have you ever heard of a radar detector?"
"How about a radar detector detector, which the police use to see if you have a detector?"
"Ever wonder how they work?"
"I mean, a radar detector is a receiver, how could the police possibly know you have one?"
"Until recently, practically every radio used a concept called superheterodyne."
"Basically there’s a tiny radio transmitter in your receiver, that signal is mixed with the one from the antenna and the result is what your receiver tunes to."
"It's one of the most important inventions of the 20th century, and you most likely never heard of it."
"The problem is that sometimes the tiny transmitter is poorly shielded and some of it leaks back out the antenna."
"If you know what that 'intermediate frequency' is you can listen for it."
"The Escort radar detectors, which were super-popular in the 80's, leaked like a sieve.""Presto, radar detector detectors."
"Takeaway: if you know what you're looking for, you can actually detect someone else's radio receiver."
"In 1942 RAF planes began using VHF radar to look for German submarines leaving port in France at night."
"All of a sudden they were getting sunk en mass."
"The Germans were familiar with other British radars working around this frequency and were able to find the new radar's frequency around August."
"They built a receiver, Metox, which was tuned to this frequency."
"When a plane using this radar was anywhere in the area, Metox would play a sound into the radio operator's headphones."
"By October most of the fleet had it and the RAF pilots were returning with stories about how the uboats would always dive as soon as they turned toward them to attack."
"But the RAF had prepared for this moment, they knew it was only a matter of time before the Germans found the frequency."
"Earlier two grad students had come up with a new device called the magnetron that produced very strong radio signals from a device the size of a breadbox."
"And the signal was REALLY short, about 10 cm, whereas their older radars were 150."
"So Metox was completely incapable of 'hearing' it, it was tuned way too far from the frequency of the new signal."
"They rushed the new system into production and the first sets started arriving just in time for the uboat campaign to start up again in spring when the weather got better."
"By March it was clear to the Germans something was up."
"Their boats were getting sunk en mass again, and the ones that escaped attack said there was no warning on their detectors."
"They tried everything to detect the new signal, but they just couldn’t find it."
"This was because they were missing one extremely important bit of electronics, the crystal detector, and simply couldn’t hear the signals no matter how hard they tried."
"And now the lie."
"Knowing something was up, uboats were on high alert all the time."
"One got lucky and shot down its attacker, and captured the crew."
"During interrogation they asked why they could no longer detect the radar."
"The pilot told them they no longer used radar. Instead, he claimed, they had a receiver for Metox and under perfect conditions they could pick it up 90 miles away."
"They only turned on the radar at the last minute for range measurements so they knew when to drop the depth charges."
"By that time the U-boat was too busy exploding to notice."
"The Germans didn’t believe him, but it was technically possible, once can indeed make a receiver to detect your receiver."
"And Metox was known to be 'leaky', as it was deliberately built quick and cheap from a pre-war French radio set."
"So they built their own Metox receiver in the lab, and sure enough, they could detect it."
"So then they put it on a plane and detected one of their boats 60 miles away."
"Orders were sent out to all boats: turn off Metox."
"And so not only did the RAF get to keep using their fancy new magnetron radar without the Germans even trying to detect it, but then they turned off their perfectly good Metox detectors and all the RAF planes with the older radar suddenly started working again too!"
"And THAT is the greatest lie ever."
"By the end of June, the uboat fleet was on the bottom of the ocean."
"This was not due entirely to this trick, there were a number of things that all arrived at almost the same time that did it."
"It was the combination of the new radars, huff-duff, larger numbers of frigates dedicated to the taskand the lack of any detectors on the uboats that made even the old radars work again all arrived within two months."
"And that was that."
"The Germans finally figured it out some time around November. November!"
"Apparently the pilot made the whole thing up on his own."
