RIP Gandalf and Big Bird, you are missed.
Stolen from a FB post: Describe your age without explicitly using numbers.

I am a Kennedy Half Dollar plus a dime. (50 plus 10 for those not used to U.S. currency)

I am one half century plus a decade.

More creatively, I am a popular rapper plus the British PM's street number.

LOL flboy, that is cheating! in some towns those were still in use in the 1980's
So that places your time of birth between somewhere between life starting out on this planet and the eruption of Mount St. Helens ;)

I'm older than a kindergarten kid can count! Pre internet cell phone, walked to and from school uphill both ways back when we still got snow!!! Born the year after the moon landing! And still wondering why we haven't been back!!! Seems like a great place for a manned(womanned) scientific research Outpost! @@ I did see first Star Wars in movie theater! Back when kids could ride bikes for miles and miles down country roads at seven years old and nobody called the cops on your parrents for that lol

I must be really old and have too much time on my hands- but I am loving this thread!
Great (borowed) idea :D


Appie is easy: she was born in the year we celebrated the 200th birthday of Darwin.
(It really is amazing how famous you get by stealing other peoples ideas.)


nothing to do with dates, but Darwin did it in biology...
