Building a crystal radio in shop class.

Having the metalworking shop teacher tell us that no one gives a --- about us, along with using a lot of other four letter words. Stunned us all!! But he sure got our attention and we darn sure obeyed him! Definitely learned.

Best teacher I ever had!!(probably needed it)

Just to show you how old............

My first new car was a 1963 Impala 300hp 327, List $3200, I was 19. I ordered the front seat belts as an option $14. Bought some little wind-up gadgets to keep them wound up and not hanging out the door . Ford and Gm went to alternators 1962 model year, I think Chrysler had a few models with them in 1961.

you know your old when you remember that your first car did not have directional signal on them. Not only that but you rolled down your window to signal your intentions including slowing down.

That would be bad enough ... But, you would really be getting old if you pee and not only don't know it, but then you finally find the glass of orange juice that you had misplaced and you complain to your wife that she is buying cheap orange juice again because it is cloudy and doesn't taste the same.

You know you're old when...

... the music you loved in your teens is now a jingle for some random fast food chain.

... there's more hair in your brush than there is on your head.

... you think you're re-living a wonderful memory but then you realize you're just watching a rerun on Nick at Night.

When your idea of a night out is sitting on the patio.

When you were a kid doing something wrong, someone you didn't know stopped,beat your rear end, and you got it again when you got home because they had called before you got there. Also punishment at school was a paddle and you DID NOT want the coach doing it if you were an athlete.
