    Well today I celebrate the big 19, its not as significant as 18, or 21, but it marks an interesting time in my life. When I think back on it now, I joined Macrumors in January of 2001, so thats 4 years and 9 months of my life on Macrumors. That is 25% of my life on Macrumors, I wonder how many other members have spend that large of a percentage of their life on Macrumors?
    I look forward to January, and my fifth year anniversary with Macrumors, we have been through some good times together, and the few remaining active people from my era can remember the good old days of pictures with news stories (The Penguin, Aqua X, N64 Controller) and the birth of the forums.

    Cheers! And here is to the continued long life of Macrumors.

    I will have three years later this month. But it will be a miniscule percentage.

    19 is the most significant by far. The joys of alcohol.

    Happy 19th!

    My one year aniversary of being here is in 9 days!
    That would make it 1/16.667 of my life spent here.

    Aaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd........... Loot?

    CMon, you know you're dying to brag to all of us...

    And 18 is signficant - alcamahol... unless of course you're like me and your parents tried to instill a healthy respect for alcohol by letting you drink since 15 but only what they gave me and only at certain occasions, these got more frequent as I got older and on my 18th I felt I was truly in control at all times. Sure, I have over indulged on some occasions but it just seems that here we all know our limits and respect the grog.

    I've seen folks come over from the US and Canada who haven't had a drop pass their lips and suddenly they're legal here and every night they're out on the piss and totally out of their league.

    I could do with some of that now.
    I've been in work since 7am I haven't taken my coat off yet, it's that cold.
    My feet are numb and my hands have a blue tint to them!

    No I did not drink for my birthday, I have actually never had a drink in my life. I just don't see a reason to, in college I see way to many people messed up by drinking and it scares me. I'm sure a time will come when I will have a beer with my dad, but for now I don't have a reason to drink.

    I mostly got money for my birthday:) Thank goodness, us starving college students need some green from time to time:)
