  • This video made me realize something I do when watching videos on youtube. Sometimes I will hear a youtube make a joke about something that is popular and relevant at the time and will think "Wow I can't believe that this popular person on the internet also knows that joke! Wow!" or "I've seen the meme that he is quoted! I can't believe someone else gets that joke!". But of course, they are probably 20 some odd years old or somebody not far-off from my age, they are part of the generation I am growing up in. We share the same internet, like millions upon billions that other people use. It's like main-protagonist syndrome, but with the acknowledgement of other's people's vivid lives. Is there a word for that in the dictionary of obscure sorrows?
