    I remember listening to pop music on AM radio. I used to buy paperback novels for 45 cents.

    No, we knew you were old when you wrote an entire blog post complaining because somebody used “Hey” in a professional e-mail, grandepa. :p

    SNL was funny in the late seventies, before the Moral Majority castrated non-cable networks with their threats of boycotts. Some of those re-runs are still better than the current stuff.

    For ‘merkun humour I rely on more daring stuff than SNL. South Park and Family Guy rocks. And Brit humour is a great side dish.

    This will really curmudgeon you up, then: The Mindset List, 2015, from Beloit College. For the college freshmen that started in 2011….

    2. Ferris Bueller and Sloane Peterson could be their parents.

    4. The only significant labor disputes in their lifetimes have been in major league sports.

    5. There have nearly always been at least two women on the Supreme Court, and women have always commanded U.S. Navy ships.

    9. “Don’t touch that dial!”….what dial?

    12. Amazon has never been just a river in South America.

    15. O.J. Simpson has always been looking for the killers of Nicole Simpson and Ronald Goldman.

    20. Life has always been like a box of chocolates.

    23. The Communist Party has never been the official political party in Russia.

    27. The Rocky Horror Picture Show has always been available on TV.

    31. Women have always been kissing women on television.

    42. Electric cars have always been humming in relative silence on the road.

    47. No state has ever failed to observe Martin Luther King Day.

    60. Frasier, Sam, Woody and Rebecca have never Cheerfully frequented a bar in Boston during primetime.

    I went through that in the ’90′s.

    Whoever they are, they were probably born while you were in grad school. Lorne Michaels’ great-grandchildren!

    You-all are, no doubt, not even close to being old. All you are saying is just `gafla’.

    I walked across the Golden Gate Bridge (Fiesta Day) in 1937… THAT’S old.

    Back then many engineers still used slide rules. The first computer I saw was mechanical one used for a single purpose. The first electronic computer I massed with was analog. The first program I wrote was on punch cards. Not that old but sometimes I feel much older.

    It isn’t without joy. Have you ever seen a person used to push-buttons try to use a rotary phone? Always good for a laugh.

    That’s just “unplugged from pop culture” not “old.” I haven’t heard a single song from more than 10-12 people/groups on the Billboard Hot 100 since I was in my late 20s, and my wife pulls it up every so often to prove it.
