I turn 50 this month.

I've come to realize that many of this forum's most active posters are around the age of my parents (76 and 82).

This is probably the only remaining place where people refer to "young people these days" and they mean me.

Happy birthday!

I know what you mean, I'm old on Instagram, but here I'm young.

54 this month, ugh.....can't believe I'm still here.....?
I'm tired of older people telling me that I'm still young....
I keep saying " it's not the age, it's the mileage".....
I feel like I got a million miles on the chassis. Tires have been patched, yet still need top ups. I leak some oil, burn some, suspension is weak, some of it has been replaced....mismatched ignition/door lock keys....& my paint is sunscorched, & some rusty spots...

Wait.....am I talking about my car or me? So old I forgot.
you may think I'm dumb, but I ain't so smart....

Happy Birthday. At least you’re not being called “whippersnapper”.

Old enough to have had Gumby and Pokey in my toy box once upon a time.

When I say I feel like Gumby no one understands except a couple my age. Have to watch what I say to some these youngsters.

I recall the days of old when people took their kids to what the adults wanted to do, not let their kids dictate when and where adults should go, and for how long.

I started High School when you were still allowed to wear hats inside. Shockwave CD players with VMSS were all the rage and only the drug dealers had cell phones/pagers.

The time when every school had a "Smoke Pit", a Woodworking teacher with 2-5 missing fingers, and a Vice principal with a chip on his shoulder.

Born in 83'
Graduated in 01'

I remember when there was no internet and "Call Display" was just invented for landlines.
27" were the largest TV's you could buy, and VHS players were top loading.
Remotes were hardwired and rewinding was mandatory.

Wow, No "Call Display",,, yikes !!!! That so old fashioned.

How about no dials on the phones, which were mostly attached to kitchen walls.

Everything you mentioned didn't exist when I was born, CD's, cell phones, pagers, TVs and video recorders.
