I was making jokes about He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (e.g. the current U.S. President) and Oompa Loompas, and getting blank stares from my husband.
I have the exact same 'problem'. My OH was born and raised in South Africa and they didn't have tv until he was 11 or 12. He was 52 before he saw Charlie & The Chocolate Factory.

Just to brighten your day tomorrow, I saw the owner of this Icelandic site interviewed on tv on Monday morning. The first 4 kittens he featured have all been adopted.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Nice article here about people in Silicon Valley struggling on a 700,000USD salary.
People struggling to get through the month on 160,000 USD a year.

I would like to know that feeling.
