Go to the website below and select the year you were born (or any year for that matter).
The results will show you the words and phrases that were first used in that year. Fascinating fun!
For my mom, it is words like air traffic controller, die-hard, deep fry, eye shadow, expense account, hearing aid, learning curve, tux.
In 1968 (50 years ago) the results show: Band-Aid, car seat, cellulite, drive-by, data mining, LED, talk radio, self-destruct, unplugged, word processor.
And here I thought Band-Aids had been around forever!
