After Disney was busted for throwing buckets of lemmings off of cliffs, we all lost our innocence. I was more a fan of M of O's Wild Kingdom . . . "While Jim wrestled that angry alligator into submission I headed back to base camp for iced tea and bandages."

I still don't use ATMs. I don't like direct deposit but rather prefer to go to the bank.

I think people rely too much on their gadgets...Iphones, cell phones, can't go anywhere without texting or talking, can't read a map becuase the GPS receiver is right there, etc.

I remember going on long car trips and having nothing to do but read a book or look out the car windows. I think doing that would actually kill one of my kids.

Are you an image consultant?

Hey old bros,

What life advice would you have for us young bucks?

That part of the horse is the "anus" and you maintain it from the other end.

I know your parties are weird on that side of the bay, but my reminder above should still give you a sense of how things work.

We learn from the young-uns, surely, but we have much to offer as well. So, come to a place where your 70s cultural references need no explanation, and where thinning hair is regarded as a sign that the fine wine that is you is ready to be served. First topic: I'm fucking pissed that we didn't have webcams when I was 20. Discuss.
I feel as if I've finally found my people.

I was a Hot Wheels guy. Sadly, my mother sold all my Hot Wheels in a garage sale years ago. I do have my baseball card collection somewhere, but I don't yet trust my kids with it. I have my father's Boxing Card collection from the 1940's.

The only thing I miss is having sex with young women. Once the hair starts to go they seem to want more and more money for sexual favours and I'm on a budget nowadays.

I'm surprised that you're not the Socialist mayor of Plano yet.

I'm trying to sell my Prius to buy a more capitalist-pig styled car so I'm no longer qualified.

What does it mean if I used the Selectric 2 all the time (I guess it was actually a Selectric II)? Am I too young for this crowd?

It's a little depressing that I'm old enough for this thread.
