    Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things.
    The people who are starting university this
    year were born in 1992.

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

    Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

    Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.


    The CD was introduced 3 years before they were born.


    They have always had an answering machine

    They have always had cable.

    They cannot fathom not having a remote control.

    Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

    They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

    They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.

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

    They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.

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

    Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list. Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading...

    :Laughing: 1977 for me was when I started racing Sidecars with my younger brother.
    It was the year we won 35 Club races, 18 seconds a handful of thirds and places including a 3rd place finish at Cadwell park in the National Race plus 3 Club Championships.

    1977 was the year I moved back to South Yorkshire to go back down the Coal Mines as a temprorary job. I stayed 16.5 years.

    1977 was the first year I had my hair permed. Along with the Long Hair. Mongo Gerry eat your heart out.

    1977 was the year I started flying Model Aeroplanes.

    2009 Was the year my younger brother would have been 60. He died 10 years ago last November.

    2009 is the year I decided to get fit again. (Still trying :Rofl1: )

    2009 is going to be a GREAT year for flying Helicopters. Just need a little more practice.
