Happy 53rd Birthday Prince! Can you spot him in this photo of his high school basketball team?

In the purple one’s honor we asked our Twitter followers to tweet Prince facts @BuzzFeed. So this post (and this link to the final scene from Purple Rain) are dedicated to @alexwain, who informed us that Prince turned down a double hip replacement b/c he’s a Jehovah’s Witness (they can’t accept blood transfusions).

1. Prince is 53 years old.
2. Prince played on high high school basketball team.
3. Wut?

"How about electronic publishing? Try reading a book on disc. At best, it’s an unpleasant chore: the myopic glow of a clunky computer replaces the friendly pages of a book. And you can’t tote that laptop to the beach. Yet Nicholas Negroponte, director of the MIT Media Lab, predicts that we’ll soon buy books and newspapers straight over the Intenet. Uh, sure."

Happy 25th Birthday, Super Mario Bros.

What is this ridiculous rumor I keep hearing that Super Mario turns 25 today? Why, that would make me … old.

That time of year again.

So, have you felt bone-crushingly old yet today? No? Well, let me reintroduce you to the Beloit College Mindset List for the Class of 2014.

I don’t know whether to pity these children who have never gotten tangled up in the cord of a rotary phone and who believe Al Gore has always been hip, or live in fear that one day I’ll be begging for a job from one of them.
