"Either we’ve gotten really old or they’ve gotten really weird."
I'd say it's a bit of both.

I admit I'm old (and I'm not even 40, yet). An intern this summer announced to me one Monday that he'd watched The Matrix. First I was floored that there are still people who hadn't seen it. Second, I laughed when I found out he was only 6 when it came out. And third, later I realized he was trying to connect with an old geezer, talking about what he and his friends no doubt call a "classic" movie. I usually get a kick out of the young people today, though. Mainly because I'm sure I was just as clueless when I was 20, but I fondly remember being hot shit when I was 20.
I actually worry about this. Are people becoming desocialized? Can young people properly interact with others?
Something tells me that if this chicks grandkids someday find this pick, she's going to be pretty proud of what a hotty she used to be. I would be. When I look back on my picks when I was younger, I am hit full in the face with just how much weight I've gained and that the insecurities I used to have about whether or not I was in shape were very unfounded.
Would piss me off if I got a gif in response to the email sent.
