I may be young but I know about Mork and Mindy, and I believe  Kristin shot JR, and I learned to type on a typewriter.  My great grandfathter used to tell me, that "the only way you turn old, is if you think you are old" or something along those lines.

I feel really old when, for example, I have to read through half of the posts in a thread titled "Carpet Match The Curtains?" to figure-out what the heck you guys are talking about.z
