Want to Feel Old?

Someone sent me this email at work today. I should be working but I'm going to pop this in here before I forget it then comment on it later :) I'm taking out my birthdate, but leaving the rest.

is the link if you want to try it.

You said your birthday is 12 / /
which means you are 33 years old and about:
54 years 1 month younger than Walter Cronkite, age 88
50 years 6 months younger than Pope John Paul II, age 84
46 years 6 months younger than George Herbert Bush, age 80
39 years 2 months younger than Barbara Walters, age 73
37 years 0 months younger than Larry King, age 71
30 years 10 months younger than Ted Koppel, age 64
27 years 5 months younger than Geraldo Rivera, age 61
24 years 5 months younger than George W. Bush, age 58
19 years 5 months younger than Jesse Ventura, age 53
15 years 1 month younger than Bill Gates, age 49
10 years 3 months younger than Cal Ripken Jr., age 44
4 years 5 months younger than Mike Tyson, age 38
0 years 4 months younger than Jennifer Lopez, age 34
5 years 1 month older than Tiger Woods, age 28
11 years 7 months older than Prince William, age 22

and that you were:
30 years old at the time of the 9-11 attack on America
29 years old on the first day of Y2K
26 years old when Princess Diana was killed in a car crash
24 years old at the time of Oklahoma City bombing
23 years old when O. J. Simpson was charged with murder
22 years old at the time of the 93 bombing of the World Trade Center
20 years old when Operation Desert Storm began
18 years old during the fall of the Berlin Wall
15 years old when the space shuttle Challenger exploded
13 years old when Apple introduced the Macintosh
12 years old during Sally Ride's travel in space
10 years old when Pres. Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, Jr.
8 years old at the time the Iran hostage crisis began
5 years old on the U.S.'s bicentennial Fourth of July
3 years old when President Nixon left office
a 1 year old when Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace was shot

So at least there were more names older than me than younger than me. I have a birthday coming up very soon and am feeling old and worn out. I remember the space shuttel explosion so clearly. Anything before that I didn't pay much attention to! I must not have been a very aware child. I spent a lot of time playing in the yard.

PS> I had to pick cranky because Cantankerous was not an option.

A Stupid, Pointless (But Possibly Helpful) Comment
You can change the word next to the emoticon if you want. Pick the icon for "cranky" and then write "cantankerous" in the blank space next to it.

Not Stupid, Not Pointless, and Very Helpful! Thanks!
Thank you so much!! I may not have been serious about turning into a static filled superhero but I was totally serious about my anti-technology field. I did a new post to test it out and it worked - Huzzah! I appreciate any and all LJ advice.

I forgot to ask on that other post - would it be okay if I add you to my friends so I get your posts sent to me automatically? Thanks again!
