Why do I know this? Random things you probably don't need to know if you were born after 1980

Back in my day, we had to walk to the TV to turn the channel, phones were attached to the wall, video game controllers were wired to the console and Bluetooth meant you should visit a dentist stat!

22/25. But the internet didn’t start in 1969. The earliest date that could be remotely correct would be 1983, but the beginning of the worldwide web was 1989. Enjoyed the test though and that answer aside, I still would have missed a couple

ARPAnet started in 1969, and sent just one message: "LOGIN", but it crashed and only received the first 2 letters. There was also no standard way for different computer networks to communicate until TCP/IP was established on January 1st, 1983, which is why this date is generally considered the Internet's "birthday", or when it was "launched".
