One solid indicator seems to be lying about your age. The young tend to lie in favor of an older age, and the old tend to lie in favor of a younger age. There's probably only a brief period somewhere in the middle where people aren't trying to skew it one way or the other... Viper Out

Watergate was current events, not history class. You know what the Bay of Pigs was. You have more LP's than CD's. You know that Paul McCartney was in a band before Wings. You watched man walk on the moon for the first time. You remember the last time that everybody got sent home from work or school was a Presidential assasination, not a terrorist attack. You remember when it didn't take the loss of thousands of lives for it to be okay to be proud to be from the United States.

You remember: Gasoline @ $.71/gal. 75mph speed limits. 1969 Kawasaki MachIII motorcycles. Motor oil didn't come in a plastic bottle w/ a twist off cap. Filling stations had attendents that would clean your windows & check you oil. A 2x4 measured 2" x 4" (I'm not that old, but I've seen some of them) 90% of the furniture in stores [b]wasn't[/b] constructed of particle board covered with wood-grain contact paper. Automobiles were built on [b]frames[/b]. The first thing you did in the morning was put wood on the fire. You remember kids getting up and doing their work on Saturday mornings, [b]before[/b] they started leisure activities.

Some told me that "that is a cool gun you got, what is it?" Answer-Star Model 30, I am not familiar with that brand.

On the bright side: - You already have guns that would probably be banned when the little shavers grow up. "Lookie here, sonny. I bought this here Tommy gun from Montgomery Ward catalog. Cost me $45" - you get to go to shooting range during weekdays, have the range all to yourself. - you get to call them "damn college kids" (my favorite)

How about bringing your guns to school so you could go shooting in the hills after school? And this was in freakin' LA!

When your oldest son overhears you and your wife talking about LP's, and asks what is an LP? You remember when soda and beer only came with pop tops. You had to get out of the car to open the gas cap. You were the remote contol for the T.V. You were the garage door opener. You were the power to the lawn mower.
