I'm not telling.

Reading the above has just made me feel much much older now.

I need a hobby.


What amazes me is how many young people hang out on the daylong net. When i was 25 to 30 there was no internet. We went outdoors.


Where is this 'outdoors' you speak of? Never heard of it.

Sounds very ancient. Were you friends with Jesus Christ?

For the moment, I'll just confess, as usual, to being old enough to remember Tony Hancock

I was born in '85, which was a magnificent year. Why you ask? Because it was the year I was born.. True story... I'm 32.

You're not fooling anyone. I've been on to you since you made that Roy Rogers reference in one of my threads.

Ooooh! I remember outdoors.

They don't let me out much these days.... Not by myself anyway.
I remember prising the phone out of my sisters hand so I could go dial up some interwebs.
And games that came on cassette tape that made a funny high pitched whining sound while they loaded.

Ya hear that, you lot?

Cassette tapes!

Where's my slippers?

Are you chained to your comfortable seat in Platos Cave?

Lol, I been out all weekend digging in other peoples garbage... got a uuuge pile of it in the garage to go cash in at a recycle center. I only came here because I'm old and too sore to work on reducing it today.

Today I declared a day off from the treasure hunt.

Life is good right now. I didn't use drugs, do anything illegal, sit on my ass, or opine on the spiderwebz, (portion redacted).

In an anonymous online world, we see avitars and assume lots of things based on the content of that avitar (poster). Sometimes we become close enough to share personal information with others, and sometimes we just have a mental image of what we assume others to be. I actually have a separate voice for some that I use in my head when I read their posts. Like an accent for those from the UK or the really poor Auusie accent I use when I read Sublimecrafts posts. (I'm sure his accent is fine, it's mine rendition of it that's poor) But every now and then I see someone make a comment about their age and I am able to relate to them instantly because they are close to me in age and we have both been on this planet for about the same amount of time.
So here is my personal confession. I was born in 69, graduated HS in 87. So 48 now.

I do the same thing with the voices in my head, when they let me...

Guess my age...

Age is relative.

I worked at a liquor store in a small town. A woman 85 and her 75 yr old boyfriend owned the place.

One customer, Vietnam Vet, came in everyday. He limited himself to 1 beer a day, health reasons. Mostly he liked to come in to BS. While we visited the owners BF came in, started talking about how easy soldiers in Vietnam had it. He was WWII, fought in the pacific. According to him WWII soldiers were tougher by far. He couldn't drink because of heart meds.

I watched them both go back/forth with their war stories when an older man, bent over with a cane came walking in. In a loud voice he says "I'm 97, WWI Vet and you crybaby youngins don't know the half of it." He grabbed a gallon of cheap rot-gut whiskey, slammed down his cash and walked out shaking his head/mumbling.

LOL settled that argument in short order.

Btw, I've always assigned Moe Howard's voice to AugustusMasonicus. Not sure why maybe it's a NY/NJ regional thing, could be because, imo, he thinks we're all a bunch of knuckleheads.
