Have you seen some of these observations about modern life that have been making the rounds on the internet? You know you’re living in 2005 when:

* You accidentally enter your password on the microwave.
* You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3 or 4.
* You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you.
* You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years.
* You get up in the morning and go online before getting your coffee.
