    Your one moment when you realised the world had changed.

    What I mean by the title is this: What and when was something created that made you think "This is something I thought would never happen" as in a new invention(like the personal pc) I have lived a while and have seen this several times,but what is it that made YOU think "The future is here!"

    What one thing made you go "AHHHHHHHHHH" "WOOOOW"
    MAGIC is MAGIC,black OR white or even blood RED

    all i ever wanted was a normal life and love.

    The world has changed a lot in the 18 years I've lived, but MY world, MY surroundings have not changed at all. It's sad.

    How Facebook is more socially acceptable than calling or stopping by.

    The 3D printer.

    But the 3D printer was what blew my mind. It didn't seem to be a far cry from making cool plastic models in your own garage to making new organs.

    So many things are no longer sci-fi.

    When I walked out of a starbucks and saw another starbucks.
    Trust is knowing someone or something well enough to have a good idea of their motivations and character, for good or for ill. People often say trust when they mean faith.

    Re: Your one moment when you realised the world had changed.

    I think I'm still too young. Cell phones and personal computers were pretty much on their way up when I came of age, and I was still young enough when the internet started that I don't really remember a world without it. Maybe that kid that was cured of aids a couple of weeks ago? Or the commercial flights into space (though no one seems to have actually done that yet).

    Edit how did I forget about the 3D printer? I change my answer...that one.

    Even if you're only a boy, you can fight like a girl!

    Re: Your one moment when you realised the world had changed.

    I know it sounds backwards, but what I think the most amazing thing about time moving forward is how cyclical things seem to be. How we are always fighting a "new" battle, for rights or oil or whatever else we want to fight over. But the real telling thing seems to be how that has evolved, what we "fight" for, and who we seem to be fighting, watching the different movements come and go, seeing the actual climate of the world change... that is the wow factor for me...
