Subject: What would change if you were born 15 years earlier?

Self-explanatory.

If I were born in 1984, then that would be a treat.

I would've been going to high school during the late 90s and early 2000s.
I would be a college kid during the mid 2000s.
I would experience the whole late 90s as a teenager.
I would've experience the golden age of Nickelodeon way early.
I would've watched Nick Jr. during 1988-1990.
I would've been a very late 80s/early 90s kid.

Honestly, it's not that much of a difference since I would just experience the same stuff from the late 80s/90s/2000s as a person born in 1984. It might change because I would've been a teenager during the Y2K era, but that's about it.

Firstly, my birth certificate would have to be changed to the earlier date, and secondly, my parents would be much younger, too young to start a family.

Same with mine.

For me, that would be 1965. My dad was 12 and my mom was 14; they didn't know each other at all yet.

I have always believed in fate (and the chance that goes with it), and for myself to be born 15 years earlier would not happen.

I don't think it would happen for anyone.

Let's just assume your parents were also 15 years older in this scenario.

Okay... then they would have been born in 1936 and 1938, (Mom and Dad respectively). They would have gone through different times as well (such as, living through the Second World War). Likewise, if my grandparents had been born 15 years earlier than they would (instead of the 1920s)...then they would have all lived through the First World War!

My parents were only 20 and 17 years old in 1984, so I think it's extremely unlikely that I could have been born 15 years earlier. However, in all honesty, I don't think I would have liked to have been born in 1984. My childhood would have primarily been in the Early 90s, which wouldn't be too bad, but I would personally prefer to have been a child in the Mid/Late 90s. Ideally, I would have liked to have been born in the Late 80s.

My parents were still young in 1959, My Father would be 18 and My Mother would be about 15.

My dad would be 20 and my mom would be 11, that's kind of gross  ;D
