You know you're old when
..it becomes impossible to listen to Radio 1.
…in order to read anything written on an item in your hand, said item must be moved backwards and forwards AND into an area of better lighting before it’s possible to see it.
…you can remember when light bulbs emitted light and did so immediately upon flick of the switch.

When you started mountain biking:Posted 4 years ago
– No-one had heard of a cycle helmet.
– No-one had heard of a trail centre.
– No-one had heard of a mountain bike(!)
– Most of the equipment and materials now found on a mountain bike, weren’t.
– You’re still faintly amused that riding around in the woods making motorbike noises became an olympic sport.teamhurtmoreSubscriber
You know who/what sturmey archer were…
…you play golf against your old Uni and the current students were not born when you were there…
…helmets didn’t exist – made life some simple, so few arguments…
…staying in to watch a box set of Homeland/Killing/24 instead of going out starts have some appealPosted 4 years agoboltonjonSubscriber
It hit me the other week when the Moira Stewart (hmmm, what a voice – i am old…) explained in her Radio 2 new bulletin that the favourite to win a bunch of Brit Awards was someone called Emily Sandez – who I’d never heard of
They then played one her of songs which I didn’t recognise
I’m also the 2nd oldest person in my office of 30 people. I feel like a dinosaur
I wouldn’t mind, but i’m only 37Posted 4 years agohoraMember
Anyone mentioned drinking yet?
When I was 20- if someone said they could drink all day/like a hero I thought they were incredibly sad.
Nowadays if someone 10yrs younger (it happens) says they go on an all day bender… I still think the same but they OFTEN say ‘its because your old now/can’t drink/**** etc’.
Right, whatever. Not so long ago a woman drank me under the table. I was actually concerned for her longterm health.Posted 4 years agobusydogMember
Bands you used to go and see in your twenties are now on their second comeback, sound cr@p, and play in Las Vegas to pay their tax arrears.
Just a couple days ago I mentioned to Mrs. BD that it was pretty scary to see so many of the bands we grew up listening to now playing in out-of-the-way Indian casinos! Some are even on their third comeback tour–must be hell when the money runs out.Posted 4 years agoyunkiMember
today chatting with my other half and one of my best mates.. (both ten years my junior, which quite easily makes me feel old in itself)) and me and the good lady were talking about an evening out we had last week.. she was adamant that no-one at the event was young, whilst I swore the place was full of youngsters.. 😳Posted 4 years ago
