I know! I still remember my nieces as little kids, but they now have kids of their own. I just do not feel as old as I am.

I also have nieces and nephews by now, all of them being in the 0 to 5 age range. (Technically, they're the kids of my cousins, but to make things easier I just refer to all the kids as my nieces and nephews.) I haven't seen those kids for a while because I moved to a new city some time ago: I'm far away from my original hometown. It's odd, being an aunt. It's even weirder to think that the kids probably won't remember me. Looking back on the past, and comparing it to the present and future, can be a very odd feeling. Not exactly depressing, just... odd.

Looks like there isn't a lot of activity on the forum these days...

I remember how back in 2014 there used to be loads and loads of people chatting here.

A lot of the chatting has moved to discord. Only the old dinosaurs are remaining :-P
The real sign that someone has become a fanatic is that he completely loses his sense of humor about some important facet of his life. When humor goes, it means he's lost his perspective.

''Dinosaurs''? Oh, dear. Does that mean the oldest posts in this forum are on the level of ancient fossils now? Goodness, goodness...

Well, in a few months I will hit majority on this forum, and much more in real life. I guess that in the Internet world that qualifies me as a dinosaur :-P

And by 2030 every single one of us will be older still...

(Keep in mind: 2030 is when the 1980s Astro Boy series is set. In eight years, that time shall no longer be ''in the future''.)
