just marking the days off

the following routine is found at Age Gauge.

You said your birthday is 7 / 30 / 1954
which means you are 50 years old and about:

37 years 9 months younger than Walter Cronkite, age 88
34 years 2 months younger than Pope John Paul II, age 84
30 years 2 months younger than George Herbert Bush, age 80
22 years 10 months younger than Barbara Walters, age 73
20 years 8 months younger than Larry King, age 71
14 years 6 months younger than Ted Koppel, age 64
11 years 1 month younger than Geraldo Rivera, age 61
8 years 1 month younger than George W. Bush, age 58
3 years 0 months younger than Jesse Ventura, age 53
1 year 3 months older than Bill Gates, age 49
6 years 1 month older than Cal Ripken Jr., age 44

16 years 0 months older than Jennifer Lopez, age 34
21 years 5 months older than Tiger Woods, age 29
27 years 11 months older than Prince William, age 22

and that you were:

47 years old at the time of the 9-11 attack on America
45 years old on the first day of Y2K
43 years old when Princess Diana was killed in a car crash
40 years old at the time of Oklahoma City bombing
39 years old when O. J. Simpson was charged with murder
38 years old at the time of the 93 bombing of the World Trade Center
36 years old when Operation Desert Storm began
35 years old during the fall of the Berlin Wall
31 years old when the space shuttle Challenger exploded
29 years old when Apple introduced the Macintosh
28 years old during Sally Ride's travel in space
26 years old when Pres. Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, Jr.
25 years old at the time the Iran hostage crisis began
21 years old on the U.S.'s bicentennial Fourth of July
20 years old when President Nixon left office
17 years old when Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace was shot
14 years old at the time the first man stepped on the moon
13 years old when Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated
11 years old during the Watts riot
9 years old at the time President Kennedy was assassinated
5 years old when Hawaii was admitted as 50th of the United States
3 years old when the Soviet satellite Sputnik 1 was launched

think about how the world has changed during my lifetime. when sputnik entered the atmosphere, haralding the age of communications satellites and global communications, i was already alive. now, i can sit down in front of a computer virtually anywhere in the world, log in, and communicate with someone virtually anywhere else in the world. just boggles the mind.

Double damn. I'm older than both of you and you seem to take the title "geezer" for granted.

well, i'm the "old guy" on my shift, so i get it there, and of course, my youngest (who's 24) has tagged me as "old man" "geezer", "pops" and any number of other nicks. so i've become somewhat toughened up in that regard. but then, if i'm a geezer, and you are older than me, .... never mind.
