The world has changed significantly over the past 20 years, particularly affecting the vocabulary of the average American, as a recent Reddit thread illustrated.
How would you have interpreted the following phrases if you heard them 20 years ago?
“I have angry birds on my phone.”
“I store my contacts in the cloud.”
“Aw man, I accidentally liked her photo.”
“My Internet is down so I can’t watch TV.”
You would likely have been particularly confused if someone told you they had “2,000 followers,” or said, “Hang on, I’m gonna Google it.”
Filling in for Glenn Beck on Wednesday, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere analyzed the list on radio.
They were particularly amused by: “Yelp says to try the gluten-free bison burger with kale and quinoa.” Listeners added other lines like, “I have a lot of trolls after me.”
