    Yes, I've seen both the original and special editions of the Original Trilogy. As I said, I've been a fan since I was six!

    I wasn't alive when JFK was assassinated.
    There is a very tasteless joke to be made here...

    I was six when that happened and after watching the highly technical operation on TV all day and being repeatedly told to clam up by breathless adults, went out on our front lawn in the dark where I could see the lander with on my own eyes...or so I imagined.

    It was a very cool night.

    I'm referring to the Moon Landing by the way, if there was international TV coverage of Noclevername's birth I missed it.

    It was a closed affair, no press were allowed.

    I am so young that most space exploration concept art has no appeal to me because I already know it didn't go that way.

    I am so young that upon reading the novelization of the Star Trek original series episode "Tomorrow is Yesterday" and seeing John Christopher's son described as "leader of the first Earth-Titan probe", my thought was "Oh, so he'll work on the Cassini-Huygens mission, then."

    I'm so young that I've always taken the wheel and fire for granted.

    I haven't even been around long enough for a single orbit of Neptune.

    I don't recall any Homo sapien presence on the Moon during my lifetime.

    The first computer I ever used was at Talcott Mountain Science Center, in BASIC (it also used Machine Language but that was a bit advanced for kids my age). I can't recall the brand but it had a terminal connected to a large magnetic core. Monitor screens were a new addition at the time, they had previously relied on teletype.


    My uncle's TRS-80 was the first home computer I ever saw.

    I am so young that I've never known a time when the wreck of the Titanic had not been located and visited by submersibles.
