I have absolutely no idea how I’m going to explain to my future kids what life was like before the internet. Those stories of a pre-YouTube, pre-Wikipedia, pre-Google, pre-iPhone, pre-iPad day will be the modern day equivalent of my parents’ stories about walking a mile to school barefoot in the snow with two barrels of water and a fresh chicken attached to a stick.

It’s crazy to think that people — actual people with actual brains — did things like keep an encyclopaedia set on their bookshelf to look things up, or used paper maps. We were so crazy. [BuzzFeedYellow]
