Ancient Artifacts

“These ancient artifacts, pictures from the 1980s and 90s…” says a 26-year-old character in the novel I’m reading.

I hate them youngsters.

    If someone says to me that something was “a long time ago” may default interpretation is always “before 1640.” I may change the initial interpretation if the speaker clarifies further for context.


    1. Why 1640, David?
      America was discovered later, so the arrival of Columbus couldn’t be the reason for this date.
      Does it just look pretty to you?


      1. Why 1640, David?

        I don’t know. It is just the date that always comes to mind first when I hear “A long time ago.” There myst be some kind of logical explanation as to why that is always the date that first occurs to me, but I don’t have any idea what it is. Maybe something I read in fifth grade history??
