Does that count?

Me, three! My daughter kept telling me for years they were saying 'Seventinis'. I knew she was wrong but she has only admitted it in the last year or so.

I guess then if a mod’s nickname is Gabby, we can’t say someone is very gabby. Or that the verb or noun “pat” is verboten because there is a mod with that nickname.

Maybe the Word That Shall Not Be Uttered has some obscure raunchy or derogatory meaning that most Americans don’t know of.

It’ll be fun searching on that word...

Hmmm, that didn’t take long. The WTSNBU means, among other things, the cocaine-related drug whose name starts with “cr.” Odd, because people have posted that word on C-D before.

There must be an X-rated slang meaning!

I'm beginning to complain to myself about the cost of stuff. A good example is an Overland Journal Black & Charcoal Hat.

My comment? "$26 for a ****ing baseball cap? Hell naw."

Mind you, I don't mind spending money. I recently purchased an Omega moonwatch and I'm looking at a new bicycle in the next six months that'll cost just under a half million in pretty pennies. Everyone has their own take on stuff they desire and purchase I suppose.

Read lots of news.....

When I watch an older movie, I'll google actors I think may have died from that movie

I'll marvel at a deal. My neighbor bought a brand new shovel from a big box store for $9. I couldn't believe you could buy a brand new shovel that cheap, to the point I almost bought one just because it was so cheap! I'd didn't..........figured I could borrow his for free!

Lately I have been looking at things and considering how expensive they have gotten. New F150, 50-55-60K? Crazytalk, I bought a new Lariat 9 years ago for 30,000!

That's not me but I did fix a kids bike the other day (chain kept falling off). I told him to bring it up to my garage, loosened the wheel and made it tight. I showed him what I did, made him tighten the bolts.

I can remember "old guys" doing stuff like that for me as a kid! Funny how life repeats itself.

I got busted wearing a 10 yr old t-shirt recently...........it still looks fine but it is 10 years old. Usually shirts got torn up, stained or left somewhere long before 10 years. I have a Porsche shirt that a relative bought me in 2002 (so that is 17) but I didn't wear it much and it will soon be vintage!

My workbench is slowly creeping up with "old man" containers full of loose screws/nuts, broken things I think I will fix someday and general stuff that has been there for years and untouched. I have NOT gotten to the mason jar status.

I have some storage trays (little slide out trays in a box) that are easily 50 years old. I got them in the late 80's (yeah that makes them 30+ years in my possession). Some of my tools are 50 years old but they still say Made in USA......vs China/India/where ever

Me too. I love going from the 70's station, on 7, to the comedy station Laugh USA on channel 98. Both will get you to your destination in your car in a good mood.

I'm doing this other thing, that I know only old people do (I'm hanging on to the last months of being 59).

:-/

I'm buying clothes and shoes that I like in other colors. For example, if I really love a pair of white capris, I go online to buy the same item in black and blue. Same thing with shoes.

I've bought my favorite top in two colors.

How old is that?

I think I'll stop doing it.

Most likely cc is in the settings under accessibility: you can set it as a choice of “always on” , “ on on replay” or “off”
It works on nearly all old shows and movies.
