I had a fairly harsh kick to the head with the below picture and I thought, "Hmm, what else?"

What are yours?

I don't need pictures to feel old. I'm old and I feel old all the time.
So, find me some pics to make me feel not old!

What made me feel old recently is having a soft fall off my mountain bike and having a bone break. I've been riding for over 20 years and never broke anything, I am annoyed … and feel middle aged now.

I'm feeling old, because she could be my daughter:

The other day I had to tell someone my first gaming machine was an Atari 2600, so I also need no pictures to make me feel old.

Bah, if you never used punch cards, you're a pup.

We old geezers and geezerettes may have had to learn how to make the holes in the punchcards, but Corwin is ancient.

Punch cards? New fangled inventions, you'd toggle your machine code instructions in from front panel if you are a real programmer (when there were computers of course - Tips hat to Corwin)

According to Corwin his first "computer" was a smooth piece of ground and a small stick, so he could draw pics and symbols to illustrate each frame.

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

I didn't have pong, but a good friend did. Was that prior to the Commodore Vic 20? It was my first computing device. I replaced it very fast with the C64. I remember I took 3 of my friends mowing jobs to earn enough to buy the 1541 floppy drive too.

The Cowboys Cheerleader pic reminded my how hard it would be to add a USA citizen to HiddenX's average faces post. We're basically mutts of all other countries, being a melting pot of about every nation in the world. The USA is a very young country made up of citizens from very old countries

I think I personally have German, French, two Native American bloodlines, and a smidge of Irish in my background. I'm a mutt. I'm a living example of the Bill Murray line from Stripes.

Drithius, I would think the above pic would bring it home to you best.
