View Full Version : how old are you guys?
So, how old are you guys? 8, 9 , 113? I am guessing most people on this board rare in between 15 - 25. I will be very suprised if there are many old than 30 and younger than 15.
Oh yeah, I am the big sixteen (OK, really not that big, but bigger than 1,2,3,4, and 5 put together http://geekvillage.com/ubb/smile.gif)
19. i doubt anyone would want to reveal their age though...

I turned 30 this year. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/frown.gif
Just wanted to share something about age my Mother sent me:
Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old
is when we're kids?
If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you
think in fractions. How old are you?. "I'm four and a half. You're never
36 and a half. You're four and a half going on five!
That's the key. You get into your teens, now they can't hold you back.
You jump to the next number. How old are you? "I'm gonna be 16." You
could be 12, but you're gonna be 16.
And then the greatest day of your life happens, you become
21. Even the words sound like a ceremony: You BECOME 21! YES!
But then you turn 30. Ooohhh what happened there? Makes you sound like
bad milk. He TURNED, we had to throw him out. There's no fun now.
What's wrong? What changed? You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you're
PUSHING 40. Stay over there, it's all slipping away!
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you're PUSHING 40, you REACH 50 And your
dreams are gone.
Then you MAKE IT to 60. You didn't think you'd make it! So you BECOME
21, you TURN 30, you're PUSHING 40, you REACH 50, you MAKE IT to 60.
Then you build up so much speed you HIT 70!
After that, it's a day by day thing. After that, you HIT Wednesday.
You get into your 80's, you HIT lunch. My grandmother won't even buy
green bananas. It's an investment you know, and maybe a bad one.
And it doesn't end there. Into the 90's you start going backwards.
I was JUST 92.
Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a
little kid again: "I'm 100 and a half!"
I feel like spoiled milk. http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

I suggest a very strong cup of decaf first and then a long walk on the beach before you read any more of this post.
Then please let the decaf and walk neutralize your system before I tell you something.
Maybe wait about 10 minutes.
I HAVE SOCKS OLDER THAN SOME OF OUR FANTASTIC MEMBERS

Today I am 10,527 days old ... but who's counting!
I'm 16, w00t, close to 17, but I feel like an old man, pfffffft...
10-03-2000, 11:30 PM
I am 91 ! :P
17... been that way for a while.
Don't intend to get any older for another 6 months, by which time I'll be dying to turn 18 so i can drive around on my own!
Haha, I've been driving around on my own since I was 15 http://geekvillage.com/ubb/tongue.gif

Got it ?

The way I figure it, If you took Gallery's past age of 11 and compounded it continuously for approximately 9.2 years at a rate of 12% you'd get his current age.

RE: how old are you guys?
I remember when Disco was cool, and VW Bug was around the for first time! What was even cooler was the vans VW made bag then.
How many of you remember when Ronald Reagan was shot? The space shuttle exploded? When man landed on the moon? When JFK was shot?
Hey Steve, I even have my real steel Get Smart lunch box, I also have the original steel snoopy trash from my room when I was a kid. Yes, that tells alot, my lunch box and trash can were steel, not plastic.
For those of you who haven't owned anything made of steel, just plastic, well that says alot.
11-12-2000, 11:08 PM
You know, the original post mentioned being surprised if we were over 30.
I just realized, that both my Get Smart lunch box and Snoopy trash can were both over 30, and I still think they're cool.
11-22-2000, 12:30 AM
Hey Steve, you collect antique socks too?
11-27-2000, 12:43 AM
good ol' 19 http://geekvillage.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
12-04-2000, 08:28 PM
I miss my Snoopy trash can. And my Peanuts lunch box.

Teenager here. 'Scuse me while I go slam some doors and ignore my parents.
To Tim.. you're not able to drive on your own until you're 18? UGH!! Not moving to Australia anytime soon.
