    I am so young that the International Space Station has been in orbit for 4/5ths of my entire life.

    I am so young that I've never lived in a house that didn't have electricity.

    I'm so young that the Chicago Cubs haven't won a pennant in my lifetime.

    I've witnessed every launch of a probe or rover to Mars.

    I am so young that George Orwell's novel never was set in the future.

    Well, I am not that young - but I have never lived in a world without Star Wars

    Edit: Or a world where Star Trek (Original series) was new.

    I'm so young that Einstein was not alive when I was born. (Maybe that should be in the other thread, with "almost"...)

    I wasn't alive when JFK was assassinated.

    I don't remember the breakup of The Beatles.

    I've never seen the light of a Moon that didn't have footprints on it.

    I like this, I'm presently in an area with proper darkness rather than my usual light pollution so I really like this post.

    I had never heard of Star Wars until Episode 1-- of course, once I did find out about it, I fell in love instantly!

    Have you at least seen Han shoot first?

    I missed by 11 days being born on the day of the Apollo 11 Moon landing. But then, I often miss things because I slept in.
