Did you know...

... that CDs and I are the same age? At least, according to the Russian music site where I would get MP3s (it is currently down), the first CD was produced in August 1982 making CDs and I both 25 this year.




Why do I not have a trivia tag yet? Tag this History or make a Trivia tag?

You act as if you're the only person who turned 25 this year. :p

Do you want me to edit to include you?

It doesn't mean anything when I have to force you to think about other people. ;)

Worryingly, I remember the introduction of CDs quite clearly. A science programme on TV informed me that I'd be able to drill holes in them, smear them with jam, and they'd still play.

Oddly, one little scratch seems to render mine utterly useless, though. I've always felt a bit cheated about that, lol.

That is rather unfair. I think we should all demand a refund or something for the 21st Century in general. Weren't we supposed to have flying cars and the like by now as well as indestructible CDs?

And robots! Where's my house-cleaning robot? I mean a Dyson vacuum is a very advanced piece of engineering, but I've still got to push it round the floor. It's just not the same....

Oh, yes! Robots now please!

My parents have used the same vacuum for 20+ years and see no reason to upgrade. Surely technology should have advanced enough by now to give them a reason.
