Too old or too young

Post by Vampire_of_Death on December 18th 2009, 4:14 pm

I just got this email. It's probably PG-13 ish. Lol











Just in case you weren't feeling too old today ........

The people who are starting college this fall w ere born in 1992.

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

The CD was introduced two years before they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable..

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show..

Popcorn has always been microwaved .

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: 'Where's the Beef?',
'I'd walk a mile for a Camel ' or
'de plane Boss, de plane'.

McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.

Notice the larger type?

That's for those of us who have trouble reading.

P.S. Save the earth. It's the only planet with chocolate.

The funny thing is, I remember most of that, but I was only born in 90. Its because my parents kinda stuck in the 80's a bit, so I got to experience that awesome culture( club Rofl ) Yea, I actually went to one of their concerts as a kid. Loved it, and I actuall still like it. Weird.

Oh, Ghost, I love your title. Lol

The only ones I didn't know/remember is 'Where's the Beef?',
'I'd walk a mile for a Camel ' and where Mork is from. And I was scared of jaws for a long time after watching it. My dad let me watch it as soon as it came out on tape and I was afraid of the deep end of pools for a long time. And then, to make it worse, he took me on the ride at universal.

Oh, and Nina, the email could mean the fall of 2010 or it could have been a typo. I don;t know, I started a year early because I skipped a grade.

I think the e-mail is referring to 2010. There is a new one like that every year about this time. (Although the one my sister gets doesn't have the books attached.)

I am officially old. I have used a reel to reel tape recorder, rotary telephone, typewriter (with lots of correction tape ), 33 1/3 /45 rpm record player, and a black and white tv. (My parents had 78 rpm records, but I didn't play those. The other one was mine. I won it in a raffle at my father's company picnic, so I played it a lot.)

Ghost, I have used all ofthe above. Between my parents and my neighbor that used to babysit me, I had PLENTY of experience with the culture of the past.

What about this one: When I was born my mother had to enter "mathematician" as my father's occupation because the state of Michigan didn't believe that Systems Analyst or computer programmer were real jobs.

I'm tired and sore, but I'm recovering. I need to practice walking, (But absolutely NO falling down!) get plenty of rest and protein, practice breathing so my lungs finish re-inflating after the anesthesia, keep putting anti-bacterial cream on the incision site, and avoid heavy lifting. Along with all the "avoid dangerous activity" list I had earlier.

And it feels really surreal that I have to take a staple remover to my doctor's office so he can take my staples out....

O-o That is a bit surreal, yes. So, they took a portion of your skull off then?

Mork is from the planet Ork. The tv series was "Mork and Mindy."

"I'd walk a mile for a Camel" is of course, for Camel cigarettes.

Where's the beef? Right here!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aISkVvi5iI8
(It was an old campaign for Wendy's)

I never used a typewriter, but I had a rotary phone. We had records all around the house, both sizes.

Even after Jaws, I was never scared to go swimming.

Microwave popcorn actually is not good for you. All of the preservatives and whatnot, that are inside the bag, get heated up, and the stick to the popcorn. As good as it may taste, I'm surprised there's not more backlash against it.

Yes, but they put it back on when they were finished. The main incision was along the hairline, which apparently is why it hurts to chew. (That is getting better every day, too.) Then they took out the section of bone that was over the tumor, and took the tumor out.

That IS odd. Why would that make it painful to chew? Strange.

I thought "where's the beef" was a line by a presidential candidate (can't remember the name at this point) who was criticizing another candidate for not having a real plan?

The incision runs all the way down to my ear, which damaged the muscle in my upper jaw.

And yes, the "Where's the Beef?" did end up getting "borrowed" for a while every time there was a proposal that was falling short, including that presidential campaign, but it was the Wendy's commercial that started it. (And I am so very grateful that it has finally vanished, because I got rather tired of it turning up!)


Raps, if you can find reruns of Mork and Mindy, I suspect you might really enjoy them. (Unless you don't think Robin Williams is funny.)
