    Ok so after playing with you guys in the " Last person " thread. It has got me thinking. From time to time I have a moment where i feel I've dated my self ( In age that is ). You know the conversation when you catch yourself saying " When I was a kid" etc... I have a 3 yr old and find myself thinking about this often. Especially when I see other kids running in the streets, and parks cursing up storms with no regard. Wondering to myself was that me when I was young? Well anyway this is more about those nostalgic things, songs, TV shows, smells, and tastes of certain foods that can take you right back to those places. I take my daughter up to the mountain as often as possible. Hoping when she's older riding, and seeing the outdoors that she'll also have those same moments of being brought right back to these days.

    I've recently been watching the original G.I. Joe cartoon series on Netflix. It's crazy that I find myself quoting a lot of the episodes even though I haven't seen them in probably over 20yrs.

    I was sitting in the airport lounge a while ago and heard "you've got mail". I was seriously hoping that was a ringtone or someone like that.

    The high water mark for me is Elvis costello's "my aim is true" which is now 35 years old. Ouch.

    When I introduced myself at the class I'm taking as having worked with Photoshop 10 years ago. That one took a second to sink in.

    I've been listening to a lot of ****ty 90s music lately. It's like it comes on and I like it now, for some reason.

    I can definitely relate to that. On the plus side, a lot more people are still getting at it into their 30's and 40's. there is hope for the future.

    Remembering being told that I couldn't spec a Mozo Pro on a hardtail because 4" of travel was just too much.

    Riding bikes with sqaure taper BB's and wondering why someone can't improve on it.

    To clarify--- though the link is titled "too old", does "being on this planet too long" also suffice? Many of you know why I'd ask, as "too long" is a very personal matter.

    Now, for "too old", well, to me, it's all a matter of mind. My wife of 15yrs still turns me on to no end. I'm very fortunate to still be with her. As for "things", hearing 70's music and having flashbacks to family trips to Mammoth for camping/fishing, or day trips to the beach and the smell of salt in the air. Holding the folding knife my uncle gave me, and realizing he's been gone for about 20yrs. Putting my boots on for yard work and realizing I've had them for almost 18yrs.

    Isn't nostalgia great????

    So far the only thing that has made me feel old was going to a concert after having not gone to one in 5 years or so and all of a sudden, I am the old guy. The middle age guy with his kid at the show... The old guy who doesn't fit in... when the 23 year old sitting next to me realizes that I am smoking a joint and says "It's good to see some of the older generation still out here."

    That has been the only thing that made me feel old so far. Or at least not young. That was a bummer.

    I noticed the microwave at work has a rotating plate inside of it. I remember when I had to rotate my own food.

    We had our son's 8 year old friend over for dinner last night and he was talking about the shows that were on "when he was little". Hubby asked if he knew who Charlie Brown is and he said, "Chris Brown?" :facepalm:

    All of this. You aren't that much older than me, how do we have the same list of stuff?
