Millennials...

Can't they just use a metre ruler like we all did? Tongue

It's medical fact that more than 99% of the world's phalluses are around 180mm long when standing at attention. If it were bigger, it probably wouldn't require measuring.

Guys, the tone of this site has really gone downhill here.

Got to wonder how on earth he intended to measure anything with his logic!
I mean was he just curious how deep it could go?
Surely he had a better way to spend his time.

Given that the humble USB cord wasn't even a thing when I was 15, I can't even imagine what anyone my age at the time could have used to internally measure their length. In fact, I can imagine teenagers thinking that it is legitimate to ask "if there were no USB cords, how did you charge your hand-held mobile?", to which I'd simply tell the truth - they didn't exist back then either.

I'm with GTC, is this really something worthy of this forum?

It is staggering how far technology has come in just these last few decades alone.
Mind you basically everyone of my generation take it all 100% for granted, but it wasn't long ago that the only way to connect to the internet was over a 56kb/s modem with a charge per minute rate or much longer before that when the first home computers hit the market using mere cassettes as data storage and no GUI whatsoever. Really amazing accomplishments that have largely ended up causing a generation to be slaves to AI's of big tech companies which hold 'influencers' above everyone else leading to body image issues in otherwise average teens, resulting in these dumb hospitalisations from people doing stupid crap to their members.
Meanwhile these huge companies rack in the dollars from metadata and advertisements.
