    David: “Gary, at our age which would you rather have Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s?”

    Gary: “Parkinson’s for sure”

    David: “Why?”

    That's true. I needed to run a statistical analysis on my Ph.D. data that SPSS at the time couldn't handle (I had both unequal N's and missing data cells) so I had to learn Fortran and write my own program on the university mainframe. And punch cards it was.

    You know you’re old when...

    Looking in a forum section to post in a thread, you surprisingly stumble upon a Topic/thread (hint: this one) and then realize that you started it not that long ago and already forgot all about it.

    which now reminds me of at least one other thread I have forgotten about and haven’t updated as planned in a long time.

    I have a neurological condition...
    But I can’t remember what it is...

    Was going to post this in Humor-NOS but might as well post it here now since it’s related to the topic

    You know you’re old when you remember when wearing a seatbelt wasn’t mandatory...

    And you know you’re really old when you actually remember when cars didn’t even have seatbelts.
