had less memory than the computer I am now using,

Sorry, Oh Ancient One, but that computer had surely less memory and processing power than your grand childs Fisher Price toy!

I am only an egg in front of you, we had this kind of Burroughs 7800 in University of Helsinki 1984.

When a tree falls in the woods and nobody hears it, does it make a sound? If you don't know how old you really are, are you old?

I'm 16, the years are going to fast, i'm scared of getting old :/

Enjoy your life while you are young -- do everything and see everything you can. If you enjoy yourself then you won't even realize you are getting old(er). At your age if you are physically able you should be enjoying lots of sports, and chasing girls.
