    We recently signed the kids up for a paper route. In my area there are 5 routes available. I guess no one wants to deliver papers anymore.

    Add to that my kids all have pen pals, I’m starting to feel old.

    It doesn’t matter if you are old or not, only matters how old you feel!

    There is a greater gap in time between now and when I graduated high school, and when man walked on the moon and I graduated high school. Think on that a moment you other Gen xers

    Wut?! Nathan graduated from high school twice? o_O

    BTW, Gen X period is defined as: 1965 - 1980 which makes the jokester himself a Gen X'er :D

    I think we about the same birth year. Someone who was our current age when we were born would have been born in 1930

    You 75’rs missed out on a great World Cup of 1974. I cried my arse off after my beloved Netherlands lost in the finals to the West Germans!

    That is great.:thumbsup:

    I graduated from high school with 2 courtesy Ds on my report card. One was in physics. I don't remember the other one. I could do the work, but I was lazy. (Still am) My wife wasn't great in school either. My dad was kicked out of school in the 8th grade. Something about pushing the boy's vice principle down a flight of stairs.

    Our children are different. My son has a PhD in physics. His field of study was cosmology. (No, he doesn't do makeup:rolleyes:) My daughter has a MS in genetic counciling. I don't know where they got it. It must be recessive genes or something.

    I may not be good a book learnin', but I has a t-shirt.
