I am 800 years old

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

I agree with the both of you on those, and have caught myself using the phrase "Back in my day..." which usually means anything up to the heady heights of four years ago at the most!

Maybe the youth of today simply are that bad...?

Currently loaded with the cold and definitely feeling around 800.

Luckily we have this new fangled "Lemsip Max" - nothing like that when I was a lad. And I remember when all this was just fields.

I recently bought one of these mobile telephonic devices (or whatever they're called) for the first time, so I at least now feel like I'm living some time in the second half of the 20th century. (What do you mean it isn't? According to Star Trek IV: The One With The Whales it is...)

I remember once years ago trying earnestly to convince my youngest brother that we didn't have CDs when I was his age. He didn't believe me (cheeky young whippersnapper).

Is there anything you can talk about without introducing underwear?
Nice idea though. Count me in...as long as there's losts of opportunities to sit down and grouse about things and forget where me glasses are etc. etc.

I used to get lower back pain, sporadically. Since I started sleeping on the floor, it's gone and never re-surfaced - even if my friends continually give me a ribbing about not owning a mattress. I haven't had any lower back ache for several years now.

Also, perhaps some of the ailments around here could be cured with more exercise, a decidely un-rock-n-roll pursuit. I show up for ice hockey games and I've sometimes only had two hours of sleep after a night on the p-ss. You definitely sweat alcohol out of your system, believe me, because I always sweat more when hungover than when I show up properly rested.

Skating works your body from your hips to your ankles (plus your wrists on the stick), unlike things like cycling which don't work your butt the way skating does. The lower back can ache because of the posture used when skating, but the muscles become stronger and eventually the aches go away. Apart from that, bad knees are pretty common in hockey, so I don't recommend it as a knee fixer.

If none of this helps (and I'm sure it doesn't).... quit wasting time and just die now!
.... there is no semblance of rock 'n roll around here!
