    I'm sitting here watching Goldeneye and it just occurred to me that this movie came out 19 years ago!

    This was the Bond movie that got me into James Bond... that means I've been a James Bond fanatic for nearly 20 years!

    Anyone else having a hard time believing things happened so long ago?
  2. Dude, you're making me feel old.
  3. Had the same revelation last week when I realized Jurassic Park came out in 93'.

    Is this what getting old is? :(
  4. I'm a lot younger than some OT denziens. Citizen Kane anyone?

    I like turtles.
    Working in a healthcare environment, I get lots of people in bad situations who tell me their date of birth. Last week I had someone with a pregnancy complication who was born in 1999. That makes me feel old.
  6. I'd say being pregnant at age 14-ish is a complication, period.

    I laugh whenever I see the signs saying "If you were born after 1996 we will not serve you alcohol". :) I still think 1996 is "the future".

    Someone posted in my NBD thread for my 97 jazz that if I ever sell it, let them know cuz it's their birth year bass.

    I'd love to have a birth year bass. Since they weren't released then it'd be some sort of prototype. I'd be ok with that.

    ^^^^ Would absolutely LOVE a '64 P or J bass
  11. When I was in the Army, one of my fellow soldiers asked me if Floppy Disks (the little 3.5" ones) were re-writable. We were only separated by 5 or 6 years of age, so it was definitely a Head-Desk moment for me.

    I'm still having a hard time believing kids born in the 90's can legally drink, and kids born in the new Millennium are entering the workforce this year in NJ.

    It is a strange thing - I have been buying beer legally in the local supermarket for more than 25 years. A while ago, I got carded. I don't know what that was all about, but the cashier must have needed new goggles. Our son is almost 24, and the drummer and singer I play in one band with were both born in 1987. There are things I think of as yesterday that they think of as history from books.

    I'm 62, and within spitting distance of 63; yes, that's exactly what it's like. Welcome to my world! :D:D And, just to give you something to think about on your journey to The Final Dirt Nap, here's a quote from a comedian who's name I can't remember (you'll use that phrase a lot, too); "Life is like a roll of toilet paper - the closer you get to the end, the quicker it goes". :)

    Best video game ever at the time.

  17. Some places are required to scan driver's licenses, in order to make a sale of alcohol beverages. If there is no ID to scan, the system won't permit a sale.

    Or at least that's what I hear whenever a middle-aged person gets grumpy with the cashier over getting carded. :hyper:

    Agreed! After watching that movie I need to find what I did to my N64 and bust it out!
  19. My first job was at a Longs Drugs that sold alcohol, and at one point before I started the store was dinged for selling to an undercover cop. This meant that I had to swipe EVERYONES id to sell alcohol, including the elderly. Most understood, and some raised all bloody hell over it.
