Oh I see, so you weren’t actually saying what you were saying. Sorry, it’s hard to tell sarcasm on the internet. So what you actually meant was that scrolling to find your birth year ISN’T actually a good indicator of knowing when you’re old

yes, its based on the notion of younger people never having to scroll for their birth year and referring to adults in their 20's and up as 'Old'.


it did however used to be a good indicator of when you were an adult as lists always had 20+ years before you had to scroll. mobile layouts and better website design have changed that.
