Is that the episode in which Pikachu defeats Raichu because Raichu never learned attacks like Speed or Tackle?
Oh, Tels, Tels. I am *SOOOOO* disappointed! :-P
Never really watched Pokemon as a kid, but here I was thinking I knew which episode was being referenced :(
No, you're correct. Katina was in fact referencing this episode.

Yeah, I just started watching season 1 of the Pokémon cartoon. It was the Episode called "Electric Shock Showdown"

Pokémon spoilers old enough to legally drive a car in the US:
14 14 "Electric Shock Showdown" (Electric Shock Showdown! Kuchiba Gym)
"Dengeki Taiketsu! Kuchiba Jimu" (でんげきたいけつ!クチバジム) July 1, 1997 September 25, 1998
Ash finally arrives in Vermilion City and is ready to prove that he can defeat its Gym Leader Lt. Surge. However, Lt. Surge and his powerful Raichu easily defeat Ash, and he discovers that many trainers fail to defeat Lt. Surge. After contemplating evolving Pikachu into Raichu as well, Ash decides to use Pikachu's speed to his advantage in his next battle, defeating Lt. Surge and winning the Thunder Badge.

Now you're just depressing me. I remember when the "You must have been born after this date" alcohol birth date passed my high school graduation date (happens when you're 39, people).

I finished my Ph.D. in the 1990's. Talking about 1990's kids is just mean.

Both! People like me and Haladir (and I think Gorbacz) like to play the "cranky old man" card whenever possible. One of these days I need to plant onions so I can yell at the kids in my front yard to get out of 'em.

...or at least put up an "onions" sign...

I was born in '89, even though the internet existed as a child, it was in it's infancy and most of my childhood was without internet. Maybe I'm one of those rare exceptions of someone who grew up in the 90's/Millenium and can still recall what it's like without internet?

Yup, both accounts are still with me as well, though Pong was on an old commodore pc.

Speaking of which, good old DoS eh? Teens nowadays would be baffled you'd be typing the drive and folder you wanted to go to. And harddrives of a few MB were considered "Big & awesome". Yet some of the most hyped games nowadays find either their origin or inspiration from the DoS games.

1985 baby here. Started school in 1990 and grew up on pretty much every 90s cliche. Number Munchers and Oregon Trail on the school computers, floppy disks that were actually floppy, the SNES RPG era, no internet and early internet (and most especially the dial-up sound - EEEEEE uuuurrrr EEE uurrr EEE uuuuurrr EEE aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaakkkk), and a barrage of TV shows that I couldn't even begin to list the highlights of.

Our first video console was an Atari 2600, on a black and white tv (we had no color tv then!) and the first games were Asteroids and Pitfall.
i also remember i hated platform games with the You-die-if-you-don't-jump-at-exactly-the-right-tim--too late you're dead! oh wait, you just died again!-GAME OVER!

needless to say i didn't become a fan of video games until they got over the jump and die! philosophy:-p (Twisted Metal and Legacy of Kain were my two first favorite video games)

good times!

Another 1980-ian here. We technically had the internet in the 80s, just not the world wide web. There were many computers you could dial into over phone connections, just not anything that started with "www".

That's what Tim Berners-Lee (now Sir Tim Berners-Lee) created when he first combined hypertext and internet connections. He created the WWW so he and other particle physicists could more easily transfer data between Fermilab outside Chicago, IL and CERN along the French-Swiss border.

(And people say particle physics is just pure research!)

I remember phones, though not many, that you had to crank to get the attention of the (human) operator, who you would then give the name of the person you wanted to talk to, and she (it was always "she") would connect you.

Yeah, we had some of those too- but ours were a pair junk-yard relics we had wired up as an intercom between the house and the barn.

I usually don't use autocorrect, I write first, then use a spellchecker that ask me before 'correcting' (well, in things like Work, Words and the like).
