Today, I had to explain to my friend that the world did not used to be black and white. It was just the pictures that were. She still doesn't believe me. She's eighteen. FML

K, just wanna tell you that most of the colours back then came from nature.... Aswell as mostly faded because they were still coming up with them...

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

nope, had color. probably more colorful than our planet at the moment.

It was black and white back then. People used to walk faster and more jittery and there were little vertical grainy lines that would suddenly appear too.

There used to be no sound too! Just watch sone really old movies!!

And before that, no one moved. They just stood pictures!

People don't really understand sarcasm anymore

The moon is still black and white because it just hasn't evolved into colour yet, kiddo :/

Duck hunting season. Bang! Dead duck

Did anyone else think of calvin and hobbes?

It actually used to be a black and white world until the world famous colour eclipse back in 1868...

Tbh this fml is pretty similar to another... I have my doubts about this one

I have read a fml that was pretty damm similar to this one...

He means 1868. It literally says it right there. Can't you read?

There used to be no sound in the world either

When people would talk the world would stop and a big screen with subtitles would pop up

I think it was early 20's when sound was invented for the radio then a few years later for video.

I used to believe this until I was 10, I didn't know until I asked, maybe she never took the time to ask...

Tell her that it actually use to be black and white and that it only changed to color because of the trix rabbit.

It was actually the legendary god of Skittles that rained down from the sky and colored the world.

Don't force your religion on people! ^

What you fail to see is that you've all been misguided by the one you call 'Trix Rabbit.' It's all a farce, created for the sole purpose of stealing your breakfast. I understand it's hard to accept but...I'm here for you. Together, we can embrace the Rainbow. And maybe... one day, even taste it.

No! It all began with the great leprechaun! In the beginning, he first created the hearts, for each person to feel the love of his cereal! Then the stars to gaze up at in wonder! Then the horseshoes for our mounts do that we could interact over great distances and establish complex societies! Then the clover to bring us luck. Then blue moons to fill the night sky. Then pots of gold and rainbows to guide us to the gold. And finally the red balloons because face it, no matter how old you are you still ******* love red balloons.

Why do comments keep being deleted???

O.O dear god named chuck norris we have a critical situation D:

VasilisaUzhasnaj 29

Does she also think that people used to speak with ornate text screens, like in silent films?

Redoxx_fml 22

With vaudeville music playing in the background

Nowadays people move in slow motion, and explosions and romance has increased dramatically.

Here's how to prove her wrong: 1) get Stewie Griffin 2) have him help you to build a time machine 3) go back to WWII

yeah at one point of my life I thought the same thing. but that was when i was 10.

I've never thought that. Ever. Shame on you for making us blondes look dumb D:!

Actually, I use to think that at like 7.. My family lied to me a lot. (not blonde.)

41- they also lied to you about your birth... Your adopted.
