OK, I'm old, and have a veritable warehouse full of useless memories in my head.


Now, if I could only remember where I left my car keys...

I got one wrong (I never got into the Waltons), but do I get my point back if I point out that the quiz is wrong about who said not to trust those over 30? It wasn't Dylan, it was Jack Weinberger?

Any bonus points for doing that well and still being able to be trusted?
post #4 of 18
I got them all without even reading the choices!

However, it was not Bob Dylan who said that about being over 30. It was someone out in Berkley. I don't even think the guy was famous for saying/doing anything else.

Like weems, I didn't read the choices or the answers because I knew them all without prompting. I don't think it was Dylan that said it either.

Also, it wasn't the Waltons that had the goodnight Chet part. It was the Huntley-Brinkley news show on NBC which I watched with my parents every night. Quick, what is the theme tune for that show? (scroll down for the answer...)

Beethoven's 9th symphony, 3rd movement.

All this proves is that you are all OLD. Only a true hippy would know the correct answer to number 11.

Peace brother and don't trust anyone under 30!

I guess if you remember Goodnight Irene, then your REALLY OLD!:

"Never trust anyone over 30" was a quote from Jerry Rubin, not Bob Dylan.

The good ole days of TV, replacing tubes, missing knobs, having to get up off the sofa to change the channel, five or six channels to chose from, those were the days.

Bill, Bill, Bill!

The thing you don't understand about aging and memory .... but you will someday ... is that you can remember all of the old stuff like it was yesterday.

The problem is yesterday, and that's what you forget.

I wish I was kidding. I "ace" those old quizzes all of the time like I did with this one. My work partner will ask me a question about yesterday and I go "deer in the headlights" for a few minutes.

So what re you trying to tell me here Yuki, that I'm closing in on geezer territory? Are you saying I'm OLD?:

How and when did that happen?
