    And signs warning of certain death if you didn't turn your headlights on during the day. That wasn't that long ago - 90s.

    You are old if...

    You want to hang up on somebody, and...

    Hitting the "end call" button on your smartphone touchscreen is MUCH less satisfying than slamming the landline handset into the receiver.

    Happens to me all the time, but by this time in my life if it was the cellar I had gone to, I would stay there until I either remembered what it was, or there was something else I could do that would make it work the trip down there.

    Yup. The Avengers IIRC.

    Jane Fonda worked me over pretty good when I was 12.

    When I was 20 I had a slightly older girlfriend for a couple of years who looked a lot like Barbarella. After that I was pretty much a broken man. Which is why I'm still writing about it 40 years later.
