Older Than Dirt Quiz:

Be Honest Now...I scored 15

Count all the ones that you remember not the ones you were told about

Ratings at the bottom.

1 Blackjack chewing gum
2. Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water
3. Candy cigarettes
4. Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles
5. Coffee shops or diners with tableside juke boxes
6. Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers
7. Party lines
8. Newsreels before the movie
9. P.F. Flyers
10. Butch wax
11. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning. (there were only 3 channels) Some stations played the National Anthem before going off the air.
12. Peashooters
13. Howdy Doody
14. 45 RPM records
15. S& H greenstamps
16 Hi-fi's
17. Metal ice trays with lever
18. Mimeograph paper
19 Blue flashbulb
20. Packards
21. Roller skate keys
22. Cork popguns
23. Drive-ins
24. Studebakers
25. Wash tub wringers

If you remembered 0-5 = You're still young
If you remembered 6-10 = You are getting older
If you remembered 11-15 = Don't tell your age,
If you remembered 16-25 = You're older than dirt!

Yep, a am older than dirt, but really, one is born a dirty old man. It ain't something you can learn.

If you don't understand that, you batter keep a real close watch on your ol' lady, cause she will understand. The girl can't help it. It's in her bones.

It isn't so much that liberals are ignorant. It's just that they know so many things that aren't so.

Calm down now, cow. Just because you can't handle the implications doesn't mean they aren't obvious or interesting or fun.

I never could understand the thrill of jumping out of an airplane with two perfectly good wings, but I don't run around loudly condemning those that get their kicks doing it or try to pass laws disallowing them their pastime. Hell, man, relax! Live and let live.

No, that is NOT what you have been saying. You have been issuing ridiculous religious platitudes and political insults and passing on bull sh-t you copy from the likes of Fat Rush, the Doper and intellectual midget.

Yep, was a hoot while it lasted, though.

Along with Studies and Packards there were Crosleys and real jeeps too, bought covered with cosmoline from war surplus. And there was carbon paper. Trick-or-treating yielded things like home made chocolate fudge and popcorn balls.

Kick the can, yes!

And if you stomped on one of those old iron cans just right, that had been opened with a "church key" and still had the rest of its lid, they would wrap around your shoe and you could pretend you were walking on stilts.

I'd bet there are several posting here that have never seen a "church key" and may have no idea what one is or is for.

What he didn't tell you about the scoring is that he left out the part that a very low score can also mean that you are older than dirt.

I know there nothing wrong with being old, I'm not in denial or anything. My point was, a person doesn't necessarily have to be "old" to remember most of the things on the list.

Gotta agree with that sentiment, cj. But my point is that managing to get old is, in and of itself, an achievement worth celebrating, not being ashamed of or afraid of.

Wisdom may not necessarily come with age, but you can be certain it gleefully skips right over youth.

_________________________________________________

I remember when we use to go to after school activities and they had those bubble blowing and yo yo contests, and sometimes both at the same time.

Many of us could get a lot of Bazooka bubble gum from those baseball cards in our mouths then, in preparation to win that trophy, button or ribbon.

How many Mickey Mantle, Joe Dimaggio and other baseball cards were destroyed when we use to put baseball cards on the frames or forks of our bicycles with closepins, to rub against the spokes to make that clicking sound.
