I am dating myself a bit, but I was a kid when Star Wars and Alien came out. All we really had back then was our imaginations and maybe a couple monthly magazines to pour over while waiting for a sequel- if there was one.

Times have certainly changed. Do we expect too much these days?

I don't expect much, actually. But, then again, what are "these days" without "old timers" like us? :)

As someone born in the '60s, I figure I can use codger lingo like "these days" and old timers". I forgot to preface the OP with "Back in my day..." and calling everyone else "Whippersnappers." Topped off with a throaty "Goddammit!"

@dk, '60s what? 60 to 65 or 66 to 70? :)

ScorpioStar What? I can't hear you through this screen. Speak up, son!


FacehuggerMember194 XPMay-31-2017 8:22 PM

@dk, you do go ahead and listen up, son! Your problem, not mine! :)


TrilobiteMember8212 XPMay-31-2017 8:25 PM

ScorpioStar lol :)

@dk, lol. That's what we are and the kids don't understand :)
