What's 'er age? Find out!
Ever wonder who you're talking to? Here a simple yet scientific method to find out. Ask the person if he or she has ever studied film. If the answer is, yes, then this test will not work. If the answer is, no, then the test will be accurate five or take a couple of years. Ask the question, who is your favourite James Bond actor. And when they tell you, you'll have your answer.

Ok Frank,

Have you ever studied film?

And who is your favourite James Bond actor?

Frank Granovski April 27th, 2004 02:08 AM

Yes. Sean, of course.

My wife recently acquired a classic bakelite rotary phone from the 20's for her desk.

Our son walked in and looked at it.

"Is this a real phone?"

Yup, I said.

"How do you call on it?"

He had literally, never dialed a phone.

He's 21.

Up until I was 12, we had a "party line" connection. And that was in a city. Boy did I have fun. Ring ring. Yes? Is Wall there? Who? Wall. Nobody by that name here. Then what the H_ll is holding up your roof?! Slam! :-))

Met a lot of the fairer ones with that phone...blind dates so to speak. (kids will be kids.)

don't feel bad...........
My friends 5 year old son asked me one day if he could listen to some of my "big CD's".

It took me a while to figure out that he wanted to check out my old vinyl record albums <;~)

I actually grew up listening to radio dramas and comedies. I used to laugh like heck during Jack Benny, and get the creeps when
'I was a Comunist for the FBI' came on.
I got to watch John Barrymore Sr. as the wheel chaired Dr Gillespie and Dagwood/Blondie every week at the local Yalova Cinema. Movies were 25cents for a double feature on Saturdays.
and BTW, there was no Television to watch.

Guess how old I am...

I can remember as a kid, watching B&W TV shows where people used rotary dial phones. I wondered whethere we were ahead of the times or behind, since all we had to do was pick up the phone handset and tell the operator what number we wanted to call. And better yet, it was only a four digit number!

When our small community finally upgraded the phone service and received rotary dial phones, I learned the painful truth. This small community was only 20 miles from Houston, TX, and I'm only 55 (or is it 57).

Not even close.


in the late 60s I lived in Turkey at Karamursel Air Station and we had no TV so the local American station played radio serials from the 30s and 40s. The Base theater was 25cents admission.
The Yalova Cinema was a free American movie house in the town of Yalova where my family lived for awhile. They had all sorts of movies from the 30s and 40s and 50s they would show every week, plus lots of spaghetti westerns (My Name is Trinity, comes to mind). Still freaks really old people out that I know about that stuff.

In the late 70s when I lived in West Germany, AFRTS was still broadcasting those radio serials. Got to listen to the original GunSmoke with William Conrad.

One other benefit to no TV, I read quite a bit and was two years ahead of my peers when I returned to the states. Say lots of horrer and comedy flicks, plus saw 2001 Space Odessy on the big screen. After that I was hooked on scifi.

This morning, after I had less than 5 hours of sleep, I discovered a new way to determine 'er age. Look in the mirror. :-))
