Also I don't understand the point of this thread.
Probably supposed to be fill-in-the-blank.  "It's 2019 and I still can't believe that...I don't own a flying car."  Or "people still have landlines."  Or "people still drink root beer."

It started in 2014: https://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=13587
And someone made the “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter” joke back then. Was this the first year someone was too young to get it?

Only because they haven’t figured out a way to make that compatible with planned obsolescence.

Cell phones. All babies become obsolete when they become toddlers. Or does no human ever become obsolete? What a fascinating philosophical question.

Maybe we become obsolete when the available upgrades no longer improve performance and total system failure is imminent.  I'd hate to think we become obsolete when we stop being compatible with other platforms.

I understand that joke (barely).

Ok then. I can't believe I don't have a car of my own yet.

I wasn't aware that this was a big deal. I was on the road in the middle of nowhere at midnight last night and really wasn't thinking about making the first post of the year on this site at that moment.

It's not a big deal, but there are some members on this forum with too much time on their hands and misplaced priorities who do think it's a big deal.

Looks to be that way. Myself I post when I can and don't dwell on how many posts I make here. Looks like some people really need to get their priorities straight.

I just look at this way:  They had nothing better to do when the clock struck midnight, so why not try and be the first post of the new year?  It wouldn't matter to me personally , but it certainly doesn't scream LOSER either.  Just something fun to do once a year, I suppose.

I can't believe it's not butter, and dogs don't know it's not bacon.
