word of the day: September 19, 2013
The 12 month rule is when parents have to stop saying how many months old their baby is after they reach 1 year old. Some parents say their baby is 34 months old. They make you do extra math when they could easily say 2 years and 10 months old.
Woman 1: "Aww how old is he?"
Woman 2: "26 months old"
Woman 1: "Don't say 26 months old it breaking the 12 month rule."
Genneration Alpha are kids born in the years 2012-present. They are the offspring of early generation Y's and late gen x's. They are going to be the most educated and tech savvy people that ever lived until the generation after gen alpha. They will basically be generation z 2.0. They don't remember a time before smartphones or facebook. They are some of the first people to experience a new education system in America with iPads and more collaborative learning. Someday they will be the leaders of the world but only time can tell what it will be like.
Woman: "Awww he's so cute, when was he born?"
Parent of Child: "He was born in 2012."
Woman:"He's got a bright future he's a generation alpha baby."
Kids born after 2004 until now. The Facebook generation is the other half of Generation Z. They don't remember when everything wasnt on Facebook or smartphones not existing.
The Facebook Generation comes after the inbetween generation(the early generation Z's are born in 1996-1999, they remember times before facebook and hd but they don't remember a time before 9/11. They are included in generation z as a sub generation.) They are directly after the mid generation Z's who do remember no Facebook and smartphones not existing vaguely.
Early Generation Z teen: "I remember when facebook didn't exist!"
Generation Y man: "yeah but you learned about 9/11 from a textbook"
Facebook Generation: "I remember the Boston Bombings"
When you're on youtube and see some old videos in the suggested videos column. You click on one, knowing that it's from 2007 you still watch it. Watching the video instantly makes you nostalgic about the time that video was released. Or some videos can make you feel like an idiot,thinking a stupid video was the funniest video ever.
Guy 1: "Hey go on youtube and look up Star Wars Kid"
Guy 2: "That's like 5 years old! It will bring back all these youtube memories"
