Naught boy OZ

But to be fair I do have an unfair advantage as far as time goes something like 20 hours ahead of our US cousins and maybe a bit more depending on where you actually are.

Oh by the way I got a score of 6 and then missed every one after that because I was laughing too much to concentrate after I heard the message about the OBGN's not being able to make love to all the women who required them.

Incidentally OZ I notice that you didn't post your score! What was it?

One Minor correction

"1 million- microphones = 1 megaphone"
1 million microphones = 1 phone
1 million phones = 1 megaphone

1 x 10^12 (or 1 million * 1 million) microphones = 1 megaphone

Now if you are talking about Francophones, the conversion is different, especially since France converted from the Franc to the Euro, which complicates the exchange rate.

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things:

The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1986.

They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.

Their lifetime has always included AIDS.

Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.

The CD was introduced the year they were born.

They have always had an answering machine.

They have always had cable.

They cannot fathom not having a remote control.

Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.

Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.

They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.

They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are!

They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.

They never heard: "Where's the Beef?", "I'd walk a mile for a Camel", or "de plane, Boss, de plane".

They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.

McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Do you feel old yet?

Pass this on to the other old fogies in your life.

And don't forget the youngins so they can see what the stone age was like.

Well there is one more

by HAL 9000 Moderator In reply to What a difference 30 Year ...

I had a young girl tell me this one which took a long time to realize what she meant.

She asked me "Did I know that Paul McCarthy was in a band before he was in Wings?"

Me being the old foggy that I am always thought that Wings came after the Beatles not that there was something before Wings.
