    I hate it when I see kids doing something stupid that I used to do, and then say "stupid kids!" But back then I got away with a lot more. Jeez they can't even bring dope to school anymore.:p

    What gets me is that freshman in high school were born at the start of the Clinton administration and after the cold war. or know what life was like before the world wide web?

    and I know I'm only 21 but looking at that makes me feel old.

    F*** me dead....YOU'RE RIGHT!


    And the worst part is that I was born in 1980. The year 2007 means that I'll turn 27 this year, 2008 will mean I turn 28, 2010 will mean I'm 30, etc. It's so easy to get depressed when I look at the year because the last digit always matches my age.

    If I was born in the middle of the decade, say 1987, it would be less depressing to see the year written down the way it is.


    Fight Club was released 9 years ago, right? Dang, felt like 3-4 years ago.

    Nothing wrong with a bit of Belgian lower-league football... ;)

    I turned 30 last year too – not a pleasant experience, is it?

    Damn, I hit the oh-so-old four-oh in '06. I'm over the hill, at least that is what my body tells me.

    All you kids need to turn down that music and stay off my lawn!

    I feel old every time my back goes out.

    Emotionally, I feel like I'm still about fourteen.
