    I found a very old and long coiled up nosehair in my nose and make it into a necklace for my teeth.

    I cried when I discovered I still had Bigfoot's bronze baby shoes in the basement. He never forgave us for making him wear those shoes and is probably the reason he never calls on the holidays.

    The dinosaurs died out because the neighborhood kids kept throwing their eggs at my hut.

    I remember when Stonehenge was a great pyramid, before tourists started taking souvenir stones.

    Have you ever heard of Noah's Ark? Its a great story. It goes like this: One day I told my young friend Noah, "There's going to be a great flood!..."

    I used to sit in the restaurant waiting for bones to evolve so I could order a rack of ribs.

    I am so old...

    I remember McDonalds had still only sold thousands...
    the local gas station was Esso and had full service...
    a bunch of bananas was 5 cents...
    Clinton was younger than I (referencing someone about Obama)...
    I remember the Mercury space program...

    However, about 80% of all previous posts were hilariously reminisced.

    I guess were all GOOFs (Gang of Old F__ts).

    Like Luckmeister, I remember that now. I did not like it either.

    You make me feel even older. I remember candy bars were 3 cents, and glass bottle sodas were 5 cents.

    I also remember the "corner store" had a penny candy bowl. I could go to the store and buy about a pound of candy with a quarter and still get change back. Same bag costs $9.99 now.

    My first comic books were 5 cents.

    Darn! I am in the same boat. The beginning of WWII was closer to my birth than my birth is to now.

    I used to watch my father develop negatives, then make prints in his photolab. He had a NICE one.

    The sinking of the USS Maine was closer to my birth than my birth is to now.

    I remember when Maine was on the equator and the moose were carnivorous.

    Shameful, I know just to mention the name...

    But I am so old, I've forgotten more than Moon Man has learned.
