No one ... has come up with a drug yet that can match the thrill of driving a race car.

It seems that I run out of driving talent before the cobra runs out of HP!

Eddie, you are old if your high school had a cigarette machine in the cafeteria. Mine did, and if you put in a quarter and a nickel, you got a pack of Luckies with 2 pennies in the wrapper. The machines didn't know how to give change back then.

Happy Birthday man, I just turned 40 last May and I agree with most of what you listed. I have the mentality of a 19 year old though so I'm young in my mind even if my body can't keep up. 40 is the new 20 anyway. By the time we're 60 it will be the new 40 so we might actually be getting younger. Wait, that ain't right. What?

Wow, I joined this site when I was 31. Have I been here too long? Am I lost? Where am I?

you are only old when you and your grandbabies both wear diapers. I usually get respect when I wear my shirt ,mostly from older people. The only time I drink alone is when I'm by myself.
Happy Birthday

Only if it is single malt, you forget about what you just complained about as soon as you finish complaining, if the kids you are referring to are gray and balding, when you can't remember if you even voted, the grandmothers don't know what giving head means, and you have a wife who clearly knows the answer to the question in bold.

Anyway, Happy Birthday, man!!!!!.

Happy B-Day. You’re not old, you’re guilty by association. Too much time hanging with these Civil War Vets here on the forum. When I was in school we could smoke but we could not buy a soda. The only machine was in the teachers’ lounge.
