Here’s a little productivity killer to check out:

Find words that are as old as you! Merriam-Webster’s Time Traveler site lets you browse words by date of first use. What crazy words were invented when you were?

@tomasino I was born in a good … good? something year, at least!

@aldersprig On the one hand we got digital cameras and ethernet... on the other hand Ebola and bicycle shorts. :/

I'm trying to determine if there's a way to identify words as positive or negative to do some analysis of the word creation for each year. How fun would that be!

@tomasino not sure if it is good or bad that COBOL first appeared in my birth year...

@tomasino @satchmoz The year I was born (1979) "First World Problem" was added. Seems about right.
