I saw a post on the Book of Faces that pointed out that 2023 is 53 years after 1970. While that makes a lot of people my age feel old, if you go back 53 years from 1970, the date is 1917.
wait - what??
That means that someone born in 1907 would have been the age I am now in 1970. That is astounding. Us late-stage boomers and Gen-Xers have the advantage of a new millennium happening in the middle of our adult years to shield us from the reality of jarring factoids like this.
