Any person born in the year 1900 and has lived exactly 100 years and dies in the year 2000, has experienced more in their life time than anybody will ever experience. I mean those fools were born at a time when horse travel was one of the fastest methods to travel, where it was thought to be impossible to fly, and you had a high chance of dying from the common cold. They witnessed automobiles slowly taking over the roads, the birth of planes, lived through (and probably served in) both world wars, witnessed people going to space, and eventually people going to the moon, saw the birth of penicillin and medicine starting to advance and witnessed the overall quality of life improve at a rate that has never been seen before in human history, all in their own life time. That person also witnessed the birth of TV.

So, I think we can all agree that a person born in the year 1900 is a beast, and more than likely a better person that anybody born afterwards.

You can't speak for the year 2100 and if it were 1913, then you would be saying the same about someone from 1800-1900.

Bro I was born in the early 90s.

90s kids are best kids. Factual statement.

90s kids are the best. If you don't remember ren n stimpy, or nintendo 64, or moon shoes, then you didn't have a childhood. loser.

My girlfriends Grandma is 100 years old and was born in 1912. She saw all off those things invented. She can still tell you what sound Allied and Nazi planes made when they flew overhead; it was important to know I suppose.

She may be able to differentiate but can you differentiate between her two impressions?

You can't consider yourself a 90s kid if you only remember the very end of the decade

Was going to say those are early-mid 90s, but then I checked the dude's birth date.

1983-1993; you had to be fully aware of that great kid stalgia.

I'm hoping we'll advance in this next hundred years just as much. Maybe by 2100, people will think of cars in the same way we think of travel by horse now. That is an extreme example I guess, but it gets the point across. Anyway, we may not see more current advances now, it's easier to look at a stretch of 100 years that already happened and see all the progress.

Here's what I hope we've identified by the time I hit 120:

All genes and their specific functions

For which organism? Humans have been done for a few years now as well as many others. Sequencing methods are continually getting better and less costly. Having a handheld device that allows sequencing of cells that are loaded into it is a project that many scientists are currently working on. .

As for identifying the function: Eukaryotic genetics are exceedingly complicated. A lot of progress is being made on identifying where eukaryotic genes begin and where they end but due to alternative splicing, which is something that we do not fully understand yet, predicting the gene products is difficult (not that we fully understand the Kozak sequence, and to say that it is simply where genes start is a gross oversimplification).

Prokaryotic genetics, on the other hand, are relatively simple and we can predict, with a fair amount of accuracy, the gene product. Prokaryotes are mostly bacteria, and their gene products are easier to predict because they don't have alternative splicing mechanisms. It's usually the gene stops at the Shine-Delgarno sequence and it ends at a stop codon.

All proteins and their specific functions

The proteins's function depends on it's shape. The shape depends on how it folds. How it folds depends on it's environment.

A lot of work has been done trying to figure out how proteins fold. We know that most amino acid sequences, after being subjected and then removed from denaturing agents, will fold back into the original sequence. So amino acid sequence dictates how a protein will fold. Of course there are exceptions. My old biophysics teacher works on protein folding from a theoretical perspective.

Another big thing on protein folding is post translational modifications. That is where sugars or other biomolecules are added to the protein. Glycosylation depends heavily on the type of cell that is expressing the protein, but we do understand quite a bit about the mechanisms.

All neurons/glia and their specific functions

I don't fully understand this. Neurons and glial are cell types and we do know quite a bit about how they function. Glial cells essentially feed neurons. Neurons pass signals from one to the next. How they are arranged is what matters.

Calcium may play a role in how the neurons interact with one another and thus contribute to learning.

How they all interact and affect one another in a nice, clear, database that everyone can access, with colorful diagrams, detailed imaging hopefully, graphs, etc.

NCBI is one of the broadest. There are other databases, but the NCBI tries to tie them all together.

Optional/unrealistic:
Some way to store our uploaded brains in machines that can withstand extreme heat, meteor/volcanic damage, and low gravity for millenia, because it would be great/awesome.

Here's the famous rat brain controling a robot.

You where born in 1995 yet say people who don't remember things didn't have a childhood? Dude, you must only remember things from 1997-1999 at the very most considering most people can only remember things from the age of 2-3 and even then it's very vague at that age, anything you say 'you remember' before that is either a lie or a repeat on TV which doesn't count. I've seen repeats of 'The A-Team', doesn't mean I was born in the 80's.

- Ren and Stimpy was cancelled in 1996, you would have been 1 year old...I highly doubt you remember it properly.
- N64 was only released in 1996 (Japan, North America) and 1997 (Europe, Australia) so again, you're too young to claim remembering being released and all us kids jizzing our pants at the new Nintendo console.
- Moon shoes are from the 1970's...hardly need to be a 90's kid to remember those.


Besides, to be a 90's kid with a real childhood there are only 3 things you HAD to do:
- Watch Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (the original, not Turbo or when they are ninjas...though they where pretty badass too)
- Watch 'Fresh Prince of Bel-air'
- Owned either the original Gameboy, Sega Megadrive/Genesis or the SNES


You're more of a 2000's kid than a 90's, especially since you won't remember (or where born for) at least 7 years of the decade so looks like you didn't have a childhood. Loser.

Bro, I was born in the same year as you. We're not "90s kids" even though that's the decade we were born in. Our actual childhood was the 2000s. You're using the same logic as people born in '89 saying "I'm an 80s baby."
