    You don't remember people arguing back-and-forth on an internet forum about whether you should ride listening to your Sony Walkman cassette player or the sound of the trails while riding on your brand new Bridgestone MB-3. Because there wasn't really internet back then anyway.

    When you had to use a dial up modem to connect to someone's bulletin board computer to download a copy of Cindy Crawford in a bikini all because the web was still being spun.

    When you'd go to the self serve gas station, hand the attendant 10 cents, fill up your mini bike with gas, to the brim, and get a few pennies back as change. Filled up a diesel a few months back, and burned a C note.... for perspective.

    This is a hilarious topic. Almost all these comments are memorable.
    I say that someone is getting old when looking at old photos and slides is surprised about dates and how much time has passed, even if it seems like yesterday.

    That's when you know you are old. Passing up sex with a partner is one thing, but passing up sex with your self is kinda bad.
    What kinda excuse would you use? It was too cold? Didn't want to tire out your arm?

    I went with my GF and her mom to a car dealership because her mom wanted a new car. The guy made some crack about my GF being our daughter, I waited about ten minutes and grabbed her ass and made out with her in front of him.

    I guess that makes me old but immature.

    -ear hair (both on the inside and outside...wtf ? why is it growing on the outside of my ears ? i gotta shave my f*cking ears now ? wtf is that ?)
    -nose hair (inside, seems to grow faster)
    -eyebrow hair (bushy freak hairs...will they all be freak bushy hairs eventually ? If that happens I'm moving to a cabin in the woods...or maybe i'll trim it, i just pluck them now)
    -hangovers last more than a morning (some of them last two days...poor liver)

    You know your OLD when something in real life reminds you of a Seinfeld episode. And you have to explain it to the apposing party.

    When you grunt EVERY time you stand up (morphing into my dad).

    When you fart while urinating (this was pointed out to me by an older friend, like a jinx i now find my self doing it).

    When you realize that smokin hot chick you are looking at is younger than your daughter.

    When the proper priority ordering of sex>shower>sh1t begins changing.

    I'm hearing about a study using Apple Cider to correct the pH balance in the stomach to neutralize excessive acid. I simple fix like that would be nice.

    I was joking about the Merlot, don't try that or you'll be sorry. Apple Cider sounds interesting and hopefully a solution. Let me know if you find out more about it.

    You can find the things that were in your house when you grew up, in a museum.

    true story... the actual things from my childhood home including some of my toys are in the local museum. I was also able to educate the volunteer kid on what all the tools in the barn were and how we used them.

    A tablespoon of lemon juice in water will do the same thing and it's a lot more pleasant tasting; at least I think it is anyway. I've recently started having exercise-induced acid reflux and drinking lemon juice in water before I go ride or work out has cleared it all the way up. Of course, it wasn't particularly severe in the first place.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    When you read this thread and don't know whether to laugh or cry, and when you get to the last page you can't remember what you were going to post.

    When you used to repeat the joke "the mind is the 2nd thing to go...I can't remember what the first thing is," but don't find it funny anymore.

    "30th birthday," seriously? I didn't START mountain biking until after my 30th birthday!

    When 3 beers is a lot to drink.

    Oh, I remember now! I got my first AARP card in the mail a week or so ago. The very next morning I tweaked something in my back putting my coffee cup in the dishwasher. Hurt for 3 days. On the plus side I got a coupla bucks off a meal with my card last weekend, and I'm starting to feel that lovely sense of entitlement that used to piss me off in old people.

    I work at a big State University. Once in a while some guy will make some comment about all them hot co-eds and I have to admit they all just look like kids to me nowadays. Well, almost all. B-)

    When you crash you don't jump up cussin', check your bike and take off. You just kinda lay there for a while and wonder what the hell you think you're trying to prove with this crazy riding in the woods crap.

    I got more, lots more, but rambling on and on is another thing old farts do that used to bug me so I'll stop now.

    We had one of those when I was a kid. I still have the color wheel.

    I recall getting to hand the guy at the gas station the $2 for gas, cleaning the windows, and checking the oil and radiator levels.

    A lot of these posts are making me know I'm old (except for Finch's )

    When you no longer feel the need to pretend and admit that you don't like other people very much.

    I have hair growing out of my nose and ears with a likeness of a hermit crab.

    Gray head, face, and chest hair. So far not any further south than my chest.

    My various doctors are younger than me.

    I have used a rotary phone.

    As a child I used to walk to the corner gas station for gas for the lawn mower and a pack of smokes for my dad. The attendant sold me the butts with zero questions asked.

    I rode in the bed of a pickup truck, on the road, driving right by a police officer, zero questions asked.

    My first 3 cars had carburetors.

    I smoked (not in over 20 years) in bars and restaurants.

    I did not have cable TV as a child. Or a microwave.

    I didn't wear a seatbelt as child. And kissed the metal dash of my dad's 1971 K5 Blazer when he stopped short and I slid off the vinyl seat. Nice fat lip, but still didn't wear seat belt.

    I could go on and on but you get the point. And pretty much every previous post applies to me as well.

    When: Youre in a bar and two women are sitting close by. Funny looks on any eye contact. Then it hits you, they eat from the same buffet.

    When you walk into a public restroom and the toilet flushes for you and you look around thinking someone else flushed it for you.





    Could happen.

    You know you're old when you really cannot figure out what DJ means by the term "eating from the same buffet"...

    Explanation: Not uncommon in todays world while at a bar to see two women together that are more than just friends. They want nothing to do with men. I dont recall ever coming across that as a young buck.

    And on that note: why do these rogue unwanted hairs grow over night. I swear, Im as conscious as it comes on being groomed. WTH is this growing from my eyebrow, nose, ear over night? Its like these hairs have super human Lance Armstrong enhancement technology.

    When you see a hot chick walking a dog and your first thought is "I wonder what kind of dog that is".... But at least you still notice she is hot.

    I filled my propane bottles yesterday. I have 10 gal bottles on my RV.
    They weigh about thirty pounds empty and I easily lifted them out of my pickup and set them them down next to the refill tank.
    The young kid (maybe 20?) filled them, then asked me if I needed help lifting them back into the truck. They weigh around 70 pounds full.
    I said I usually manage OK but if he is offering then go ahead.
    So he stepped over and started to lift it.
    He struggled with it, strained, and grunted, but finally got the first wrestled into the pickup bed.
    I said "Never mind", picked up the second tank by the handle like I always do and lifted it effortlessly into the truck in one smooth motion.
    He just stared at me for a moment, then muttered something like "Wow, and you're an old guy!"

    But then you forget where you're going when you get back in the truck
    What a perfect waste of time

    No, the reason is that when you're that old, it takes a while for the pain feeling to remember how to get to your brain...

    That reminds me of some jobs I had as a young man and learning how the older guys did things.

    Example: Working construction at age 19. Tall and strong, but no experience. Trying to drive nails to frame walls: tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap, tap. The nail is only halfway in and now bent two ways.

    Guy who has swung a hammer for years walks up and goes POW! with one blow and drives the nail is all the way in (but not too far).

    Oh, so that's how you do that...

    Seems like I (and most of us, I'm sure) learned similar things about swinging an axe, splitting wood, not stripping threads, and other things where it's about technique rather than pure power.
