Modern Observations of Young People

Bang It Out posted this list of 55 "Random Thoughts of People Our Age" that contains a lot of true, yet funny things about the age of blooming technology, and the social awkwardness of living in that world as a blooming person.  A few gems:
#11. I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really, really gets it.

#25. While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart.

#29. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

#32. Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!

#44.  I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

All people have little truths about modern life they like.  Any of these strike your funny bone, or any to add?

"#44. I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it’s on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes."

This is the only one that I had a problem with -- I ONLY listen to my iTunes (iPod) on shuffle. I just love the moment in-between songs, waiting with baited breath to see which song will come up next and how well it follows the one that just ended. Then, once the next song starts, trying to figure out the common thread between the two songs. I must confess to taking it one step farther and assigning a "mood" to the shuffle play. (For example, "Today my iPod is depressed," or "My iPod is playing lots of cover tunes today.")
