Heard this over the radio yesterday and the one that really got me was Macauly Calkin.

Nat said...

I feel positively ancient now.... a fossil!

Julia said...

I am OBVIOUSLY a fossil. And my friend invited me for drinks the other night and I told her that it's cold and I don't like to drive at night anymore. OLD MUCH???

Mark said...

I was going to tell you that you were old but I didn't want to upset you. But now that you admit it, well...
Your Friend, m.
p.s. I'm older than you so shut-up!

Oilfield Trash said...

Yep we are getting older.

Pheromone Girl said...

Both of my children (16 and 18, born in '93 & '94) can drive in the US - but neither can drink. Neither post pictures of inappropriate behavior on Facebook - at least that they make public. You never know...

Whew!

Ryan said...

Should I just stick my heid in the oven and end the suffering now?

Daffy said...

cheeseandrice that sucks ass! I REALLY feel old. Thanks for shoving it in my face, ya big ole turkeyass hemorrhoid!

Copyboy said...

All this proves is that i'm older than you.

Mo said...

Geez I don't need any of those reminders

Monkey Man said...

My children are also 16 and 18. Aren't party animals and have little interest in Facebook let alone post embarrassing photos there. Very similar to Pheromone Girl....Hmmm. Wonder why?

Dazee Dreamer said...

way to make me feel really old.

Niki said...

Wow. Time sure goes by fast.

Aaron M. Gipson said...

I sincerely hope that my fellow Americans were paying especially close attention to the fact that 9/11 was 10 years ago. We really need to move on from that day.

That said, I think about things like this a lot now that I'm 38. One of the things he pointed out seemed like just two or three years ago. Yeah, getting old....

Slamdunk said...

Ha, great list.

"Jurassic Park is older than Justin Bieber"--that is a mind bender.
