Are you over 50 or under 50?

I am 58.

No relevance to science, most here are as sharp at 50 as they were at 20.

<sigh> I like Big Band & swing. I didn't have a Captain Midnight decoder ring, but I did send off boxtops to get stuff. I remember when you needed an operator for long distance & waited for a connection. Western Union telegrams were a big event and replacing tubes in your TV was an expected skill. Starter buttons on the floor of your fliver. Lockheed Constellations leaving LaGuardia & I remember blimps flying from the Weeksville N.A.S.

So you were not around to invent fire, the wheel and bronze?

Old enough to know better, but not young enough to do it any more

noman--"I like Big Band & swing."

>>JGC: I do, too, but I hated it when I was a teenager. I am 69, and I was in high school when rock & roll was invented, so my guess is that you are around 75 or (gasp) older.

Wow, confessions. OK, how about this:

Own puberty coincided with sexual revolution (a heady time indeed).

Don't be silly. Most of our neighbors had fire a when I was growing up. And the richest family in town even had a hearth and a chimney ( most people thought they were just showing off) And I went to school with a guy who knew a guy who's cousin's wife's sister's best friend knew someone who had heard a story about someone who claimed to have seen a wheel. I know not of this "bronze" of which you speak.

I grew up when cars had fins, penny loafers had not yet gone to dimes, and all my pants had cuffs.

I forget the actual number.

Remember when candy bars were 5 cents? And you only had 3 cents?

Arpard,

Yep, sure do. Except I never had 3 cents.

Well, there was this one time my dad gave me a quarter cuz I didn't lie about wearing those stupid overshoes that made me look so square to Dorothy Mae.

I bought 2 Devil Dogs at Ballantine's general store. Hip is in the eyes of the beholder....of Devil Dogs.

noman: I like Big Band & swing.

The Correct One: So do I, and I'm a college student. Big band jazz is my second favorite type of music, with classical being my favorite.

G'day JayGee,
What a coincidence - my fave number!

...and my answer is ...Beatles songs are amongst my earliest memories ("Look mum, there's a Yeah-Yeah")
