Age & Ideas

I’ve seen this a lot in the south Asian community, but it might be equally prevalent in the western world too.

A great debate is on and boom – “Listen, I’ve been around since before you were born.. I have more experience, I know people better than you, I understand things you can’t even begin to grasp.. Blah.. *puke*… Blah…”

All I’ll say is –

When Windows was launched, Larry Page & Sergey Brin (co-founders of Google) had just turned 13 & Mark Zuckerburg was still in his nappies.

The age factor in this context truly¬†is as bad as – “Do you know who my dad is?”
