Remember when days seemed like years, and you never thought you’d get old? Are you still feeling youthful? These ten facts will probably change that.
1. Every generation has a legend
It had been 18 years since The Phantom Menace – the first episode of the Star Wars Trilogy that was actually the fourth movie in cinemas – was released in 1999, meaning that a child born at the time would just be finishing up high school.
2. Same goes for SpongeBob, too
Yeah, that’s right, SpongeBob SquarePants was also released in 1999.
3. Days of Future Past
Remember when 2015 was the future? Now, that’s definitely the past, even if you’re Marty McFly.
4. See you at the bar
The first batch of Beanie Babies hit the market in 1993, meaning so many of your old roommates – at your parents’ place, anyway – are old enough to legally drink. That i if the plushies were actual people.
5. The homecoming
As he was born in 1996, the current Spider-man, Tom Holland, has never lived in a world without Pixar movies.
6. The Karate Man
The Karate Kid, Ralph Macchio, is in his sixth decade of life and not too far from entering his seventh.
7. The baby
On that note, if any of the Simpsons aged in real-time, Maggie would almost be 30.
8. Going down to South Park
The same goes for the kids from South Park, too, who would all be turning 30 in 2017.
9. He’s probably left home
Macaulay Culkin is the same age that his on-screen mother, Catherine O’Hara, was when she played his mom in Home Alone.
10. The Sun Baby was actually a Daughter Baby
If you excuse the pun, the “Daughter Baby” in Teletubbies is now 22.
