For the most part I agree.. but the CV joints on Pops car the other weekend... not so much fun.

But that is okay.. I really don't need to talk about what I do.. I feel plenty confident about just doing it.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I haven't had to work on a car in three years. I was actually embarrassed when asked what engine I had in my car and had no clue lol ... I used to make fun of people who didn't know!! Thing is, I just never have to work on it so I pay no attention to it.

I'm going to be buying a beater this summer to teach a few how to drive and something for me to work on.

True story.....i was talking to a young woman one day about age......i told her "They say you only are as old as you feel.........so will you please FEEL ME and tell me how old i am?"

You should have seen the look on her face!
Of course then she started laughing.

Another time, i was out to eat with my wife.....she was giving me crap on how much younger i look then her, when i'm in fact a year older. You guys know me......i can NOT pass up the chance at making a joke (even if it DOES end up getting me in the dog house...which this one did!) So i just looked at her and said......"Don't worry honey.....everyone is probably just thinking "Isn't that nice that that young man is taking his MOTHER out to eat?"

She did NOT laugh!Big Grin

a couple months ago, we were in a store making some purchases when the cashier asked my husband a question:

"and have you celebrated your 60th birthday yet, sir?"

now, i probably shouldn't have had the reaction i did but i burst out laughing like a blasted hyena, informed said cashier that she just made my day & my husband said "day? you just made her damn year!"

after i pulled myself together, i informed the cashier that not only isn't he 60 but he's a year younger than me, i completely enjoyed listening to her laughing like crazy. then she said "oh i thought he was your dad!!"

best.day.EVER!!!!!!

I am sure I have told this one before-

about 10 years ago some sweet little gave my wife a senior citizen discount on her cup of coffee. She was still in her 40s. I laughed so hard. She was soooooo pissed at me and the little 12 year old behind the counter. She went home and died her hair. She had been putting it off and her grey roots were showing. I told her at least she had hair. It didn't help.

Truth be told I was happy for the discount because it saved me a nickle.

Didn't happen. We're worse off than we were 20 years ago.


Sorry, no.

Worse off than five years ago, probably.

Twenty years ago -- No smart phones. No third and fourth Packer Super Bowl titles. No poker chip collecting. No PackersHome. No Google. No Wikipedia. No Cluetrain Manifesto. No blogging. No fall of the Wall, no fall of the Soviet Union (okay, those two were 23 years ago). Real GDP per capita about 65% higher in USA.
Life expectancy at birth up about 2 years on average, for blacks up about 5 years.

And while I haven't checked, my guess is that if you checked average population height (excellent indicator of childhood nutrition), percent of world population with caloric intake of over 1500 or over 2000 calories/day, average world sanitation quality, even average world environmental quality, you'd find they're all higher now than 20 years ago.

Don't get distracted by business cycle effects and the reporting of CNN, my friend. The trend is still upward.

I wish I were still the age I was 20 years ago (assuming I could keep what I've learned in the meantime). And I'd sorta rather be in Uruguay or Ecaudor than in the American Midwest. But I'd rather be alive today than in any other time in human history.
None of the above. It wouldn't have been a wasted vote. Obama and Romney -- Those were the wasted votes.

That's awesome. Sometimes while reading Wade's posts - I tend to take a siesta which is another sign of old age.

Whoa. Slow down a little. Dakota is (highly) opinionated, but no dumbass.

We don't roll like that unless we know (and ultimately respect) one another.

This isn't PFT.
