I was born in the 1980's. I'm hardly entering mid-life, let alone applying for my AARP card. But Wired has found a way to make my twenty-something years feel like a lifetime. The online magazine's tech-centric list of the "100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About" brings up all the usual outdated lifestyle technologies (the VHS tape) and some others that make you go, "Whoa..."

Wired's of the "100 Things Your Kids May Never Know About" covers small memories that were once part of your everyday life that your kids will probably never do or think about ever.

The list is divided into categories of audio-visual entertainment, computers and videogaming, the internet, gadgets, and everything else. Check it out here and let us know in the comments which ones made you feel like moving to Florida and starting a Bingo club.

We personally cringed at the thought that our kids (and even my own little sister) might never know about a time when you had to drop film off at the drugstore and wait to see your pictures when they arrived in a little paper envelope with negatives!
