    I'm still reeling from the vast social changes wrought by the invention of those round things. You, know, those things that roll... what are they called again? Whuls? Whils?

    Whales. But don't even try to remember them. They're a fad, just like this "iron" stuff everyone has been talking about of late.

    I remember when whales evolved back into aquatic creatures in primitive Beverly Hills because of all the swimming pools.

    Yeah, his bunch caused a ruckus at a strip mall in Waco recently. I think due to his eating of chips, he was at the nearby Dialysis clinic.

    I fondly recall riding my T-Rex to school. Her name was "Fluffy." Very apt. She never bit me.

    I remember when there were no laws of physics. Particles and atoms and whatever else just did whatever they pleased. It was like a cosmic Wild West.

    I am so old that the end of WWII was closer to my birth than my birth is to now.

    I can develop color negative film. (manually) and make prints.

    I'm so old that I couldn't join Sons of the American Revolution. I was actually a member of a group that was called Ancestors of the American Revolution.

    I know what a proper pint glass looks like

    for the youth, it has a handle and dimples. It is not a large tall glass and isn't branded.
