How Old Are We?

YankeeManYankeeMan Posts: 2,216 ✭✭✭✭
I know that we have several more mature people on the site, I was just wondering who might be the oldest.

At 70, I'm two years older than dirt.  Do we have anyone who might be three or four years older than dirt?

    I am so old I count backwards. Why I am so old I remember going on the Howdy Doody show.

    Chronologically, 63.  Psychologically, your guess is as good as mine.

    My Wife went on the Howdy Doody show and she's not that old. 

    She was teaching force this week in school and the book had an example of a space capsule. Her students had no idea what it was, it might as well have been a covered wagon.

    I am going to guess that 25 is probably the youngest.

    I'm a month older than Star Wars.

    I'm not the youngest, but also not the oldest. Or, even half the age of the oldest.

    Couple rotations north of 60, I remember 5 cent candy bars, 10 cent coke, 25 cent movie.  2 quarters bought a lot of Saturday for a kid back then.

    25 here. I'd venture to say I'm the youngest, although I have an old soul.

    Think @0patience is close to early 50's though he looks like mid 40's.

    54 now. Momma still says I'm 5 though.
    I see no good reason to act my age.
    I am old enough to wish I were half my age.
    And if I were, I'd still be old enough to get in bars.

    What are you talking about?
    I was ripped when I was 34. 
    I was probably in better shape in my mid to late 30s, than I was in my 20s.

    71 and still kicking. I remember when my dad was going to vet school at Ohio State. We had friends that had a TV. Remember going to watch the amazing new technology on Sat night. In first and second grade we had inkwells and split nib pens on our desks.

    they let 1 + 2 graders use the pens? We didn't get them till the 3rd. I still remember the pitcher the teacher used to fill the wells:
