26. You understand the meaning of the words "mortgage," "residual value" and "reflux."
 
2003-10-27 12:57:36 PM  
10 out of 25. Glad to see I'm in no danger of becoming a grown up.
 
2003-10-27 01:00:38 PM  

26) You don't find Adam Sandler the least bit funny.


Oh, sorry, that belongs to the list, "25 signs you've acquired good taste, and a brain"

 
2003-10-27 01:00:54 PM  
27. You mom can now use the basement for storage.
 
2003-10-27 01:01:11 PM  
That was about as funny as cancer
 
2003-10-27 01:01:22 PM  
Oy. I think I saw this back in college and laughed at all the stupid old people.

Now I'm one of them.

Ow, my head hurts.
 
2003-10-27 01:01:23 PM  
The first time I told the kids "Close the darn door, do you think I am trying to heat the whole neighbourhood??!!"
 
2003-10-27 01:01:25 PM  
This was really funny five years ago, when it come out.
 
2003-10-27 01:01:32 PM  
I thought it was pretty decent, bu then again about 20 of them are appropriate.
 
2003-10-27 01:02:00 PM  
Was that an AskMen link?
 
2003-10-27 01:02:18 PM  
this was an email about two years ago.

That said, almost all are true. I won't even hook up on the couch anymore. Used to be I would drive all night, then walk through broken glass to get some ass, but nowadays if it isn't in the bed, it is too much trouble.

26-You see a young girl and realize you probably have a better chance of scoring with her mom than with her!
 
2003-10-27 01:02:49 PM  
26. You can send "Bob" $30 and still cover the rent.

Praise "Bob"
 
2003-10-27 01:04:01 PM  
26. You're sitting at work reading some lame-ass "25 signs you've 'grown up'" list!
 
2003-10-27 01:04:23 PM  
28. You stop reading fark comments.
 
2003-10-27 01:04:57 PM  
24. You don't drink at home to save money before going
to a bar.


True. And because I'm chubby enough as it is.
 
2003-10-27 01:05:22 PM  
26. You're old enough to have seen this list the first time it was sent to you... five years ago.
 
2003-10-27 01:05:46 PM  
27-You see a re-run of some 70's sitcom on TVLand and remember seeing it the first time!
 
2003-10-27 01:06:05 PM  
Over 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is
for real work.


If "real work" = farking, then yeeeeah, I guess that's about right....
 
2003-10-27 01:06:29 PM  
27. Your folks liquor cabnet no longer contains 1/2 water.
 
2003-10-27 01:06:38 PM  
Krammer: Dad?
 
2003-10-27 01:06:56 PM  
29. Your nose and you penis have become roughly the same size.

26-You see a young girl and realize you probably have a better chance of scoring with her mom than with her!


That just hurt. You managed to get really close to home on that one.
 
2003-10-27 01:06:58 PM  
you spent most of this past weekend watching back to back episodes of "i love the 80s" on vh1.
i hope i'm not the only one who did this.
 
2003-10-27 01:06:59 PM  
26. The Cure sell their song to HP for a commercial.

I know how the hippies feel now.
 
2003-10-27 01:07:38 PM  
still like the couch - my wife's in the bed :-)

(if you're reading sweetie it's just a joke)
 
2003-10-27 01:08:07 PM  
Heh, plants that you can't smoke, NOOO good!
 
2003-10-27 01:09:05 PM  
26) You recognized this list from a "funny" e-mail you got in 1996. You also remarked that, unlike yourself, its humour didn't improve with age.
 
2003-10-27 01:09:07 PM  
About three of those apply to me. And, yes, I am crossing my legs and doing a goofy little dance because I don't wanna go pee until the very last second. I live on the edge. The edge between "4 and a half" and "4 and three quarters."
 
2003-10-27 01:09:25 PM  
26) the big greenish splotch on the floor after a night of too much curry and beer.

Oh... I'm sorry. I thought it said thrown up. My bad.
 
2003-10-27 01:09:58 PM  
27. You say something your dad would have said.
 
2003-10-27 01:10:19 PM  
26. You go to a house party and don't sneak up stairs and take a crap in someone's sock drawer.

I stayed up until 3AM Sunday morning doing precisely this. Come on, Bronson Pinchot's musings on hypercolor t-shirts were positively mind-bending...

All together now:

"1997 called, says it wants it's email back"

It said "grown up"...not escaped from the Zoo.
 
2003-10-27 01:12:24 PM  
If by "amusing" they mean "short-bus-riding, chained to the jungle gym, helmet-wearing retarded-ass LAME" then yes, that was amusing. And fresh!
 
2003-10-27 01:12:52 PM  
Fresh like his friends' sock drawers.
 
2003-10-27 01:14:18 PM  
Praise Dobbs....
 
2003-10-27 01:14:59 PM  
When I see the 5 o'clock news
I don't wanna grow up
comb their hair and shine their shoes
I don't wanna grow up
stay around in my old hometown
I don't wanna put no money down
I don't wanna get me a big old loan
work them fingers to the bone
I don't wanna float a broom
fall in love and get married then boom
how the hell did it get here so soon
I don't wanna grow up

tom waits

Looks like there are at least 3 of us...And I still want to punch Boy George in his head (9 times). What's with the ice cream sundae look???
 
2003-10-27 01:16:51 PM  
28. You buy your weed by the ounce, as opposed to robbing your sister's change jar to split a G with someone.
 
2003-10-27 01:16:56 PM  
bump

27- You have a 12 year old picture in your profile.

;-)
 
2003-10-27 01:17:31 PM  
Preboozing is not a sign of going old, it's a sign of being cheap, and not wanting to pay $4 for a domestic bottle.

6/25. Woo!

- R
 
2003-10-27 01:18:19 PM  
Bump: Thanks for sharing that with us, I feel a better person for knowing that.
> Goes to wipe brain clean with damp rag
 
2003-10-27 01:19:25 PM  
29. You no longer find the picture of the squirrel's nuts funny.

Actually I never did, and yes I know it was the original content of Fark, so feel free to accuse me of blasphemy.
 
2003-10-27 01:20:49 PM  
29. You find your wife/girlfriend/shack-up so repulsive you would rather "rub one out" in the shower than have sex with her. ;)
 
2003-10-27 01:20:55 PM  
i knew i was on the road to getting old when one evening i went out of my way to buy gas rather than putting it off 'til the morning.
still haven't started laying everything out the night before, though.
 
2003-10-27 01:21:53 PM  
Hey, Bump just calls it like it is.
 
2003-10-27 01:22:22 PM  
is it a sign of getting old that you move from evening rubbings to morning rubbings, or vice-versa?
 
2003-10-27 01:22:24 PM  
30. 70 dollars for your daughters' high school yearbook...And yours was $15
