...only it appears to be much more difficult now than you remember it being.

Recently discovered this is true for riding a bike. I recently bought a new one, and I thought I would go for a nice ride and do some thinking. The only thing I thought about was making it up the next hill...lol.

So apparently you can't binge-eat as well as you could 20 years ago.


Seriously, though, congrats on the weight loss. That's got to have the same liberating feel as getting out of prison.

Hmmm... Some things I can do now at 41 that I couldn't come close to at 21.

Deadlift 470lbs for one. Not great, but for me a personal best. Powerclean 240lbs is another. However, I cannot run as fast as I could back then- although I don't really put the miles in like I used to.

have you watched any of the old cartoons you used to watch as a kid?

i'm gonna be burned for heresy here but this is my honest opinion on the crap i used to watch.

gijoe: probably the best of the bunch but still, extremely cheesy.

transformers: calling this show cheesy is like calling the oceans of the world, just a few rain drops. i mean c'mon, megatron goes from being a 15 foot robot to the size of a walther P38 special? on top of the size difference, as the leader of the decepticons, why does he transform into a gun for his underachieving #2 to shoot?

thundercats: "thunder, thunder, THUNDERCATS!!!. lets just totally rip off HeMan...

Masters of the Universe: how does skeletor get away, EVERYTIME?

Not much that I can think of that I can't do that I did at that age. This is always a touchy subject with my wife and I. She is always saying we're old. I hate that. As far as I'm concerned, you're only old if you tell yourself that.

I play hoops and while I'm not as quick as I used to be, I am better in other ways. My experience counts for a lot (you will have a hard time getting a backdoor, alley oop, etc. against me). And there is at least one aspect of my game that has improved. I shoot the ball a lot better now and have more offensive skills overall than I did 20 years ago. And even despite being not as quick, I'm still fairly quick and I get lots of rebounds and loose balls. I play against guys 20 years younger and sometimes they just can't believe what an old, fat guy like me can do. :) I do that because I love hoops. And I figure a day will come when my body won't let me do that any longer. So why not let it all out and have fun?

Now ask me about a treadmill and I'll tell you to go to Hell. :D

I still like to play football (just did yesterday, actually), too. I can't run as fast and make quick cuts, but I still have fun doing it. I just don't do this sport very often because its so hard to get enough guys together to play a good game of football. The one huge difference here is that I won't play tackle nowadays. That is because I can't afford to get injured. When I was 19, I didn't care.

I still like to ride a bike but I haven't done that much in the last couple years or so. But I can ride a bike just as well now as I did 20 years ago. Maybe that's because I used to practically live on my bike when I was a youth. You never really lose that skill.

I can't keep up with these kids on games like Call Of Duty because their reflexes seem to be quicker. I don't know if that's because I'm getting older or that they play those games night and day.

Still, I can look at the positive. I have gained a lot of other things in those 20 years. I can do things now that I never thought possible back then. Things like home repairs/remodeling/building, mechanical repairs, plan a trip and have the $$ to do it, etc.

I hadn't thought of that. You may be onto something.

milkman

I hadn't thought of that. You may be onto something.

The reality is that there are good teachers and bad teachers.

If I have a deficiency in a certain area, I have no one but myself to blame, because the high school teacher that tried to teach me the subject did everything in her power to motvate me.

She poked, prodded, pushed andcajoled, all to no avail because I had no interest, and my only goal was simply to pass and continue through the system to get my diploma and get the hell out.

This was true in every class for me, but she was the only one that refused to give up, even though she wound up having me in her class in both my freshman year in junior high and my sophmore in high school, after she was transferred to the high school in the same year.

In retrospect, she is the teacher that I have the most respect for and my one regret is that I never got the chance to tell her that, and to thank her for her efforts in spite of me.

Utter horseshit. I'm watching Phineas and Pherb as I type this with my little girl. A great cartoon. Chowder's not bad. Jimmy Neutron pretty good. And Spongebob is often straight hilarious.

Back in the day, I used to get far more sleep than I do these days.

7-8 hours a night then.

4-4 1/2 hours a night these days.

I miss sleep.

Most of the cartoons you guys are talking about from your youth sucked ass too.

Cartoons in the early 60s were far better.

This one's easy--two (or more) nuts in one night. I'm not actually sure, though, that it's that much harder to get the second one. It may just be that i care more about sleeping than getting the nut.


I just thought of something that's much easier now: thinking of ways to kill myself.

Life Things you can still do now that you did 20 years ago...

1) Drink
2) Make my mother cry
3) Grill a mean burger, brat, or steak.
4) (FINALLY) record the Chiefs games.
5) Punch my dad in the nuts and not get mah' ass whooped
6) Stay employed. I know it's sad that this is something someone would bring up...but...it is what it is.
7)18 boiled eggs. It will never compare to "Luke " or his best but I'm only human.
8) Talk a depressed woman into buying me a beer at teh bar.
9) Much more buttseggs.
10) Hole (and hold) an erection for hours with only the help of Anheuser-Busch products...

Never mind 20 years ago, wait until your 90. It's like being born again.

Meaning that you're small, bald, wrinkled, helpless, shitting in your diaper, and totally unaware of what's going on in the world around you.

I think we should be born old and go backwards. Start life that way, get younger and healthier, peak at physical perfection when your mind is most ready, then spend your final days playing and watching cartoons, finally to end sucking on tits and, at last, crawling into a coochie to die. :thumb:
