Stop it. I was perfectly happy with my age until you did that. :P

I'm fine with my age, too. I don't want to be 18 again.

The list is still sugarcoating the truth . . . If they were born in 1989, they probably weren't exposed to Jack Nicholson until well after Batman.

The list has always involved discretion and choice among the editors that I wouldn't have made. You're right; it does presume awareness of popular culture from birth. The ones that are most resonant for me, though, are the ones where something has either always existed, or never has.
