    Yeah. Just for starters:

    1) Hike your pants up so your belt is just below your armpits
    2) Hem the cuffs so the pantleg ends midway between the knee and ankle
    3) Wear sandals over thin black nylon socks
    4) Let your ear and nose hair grow to extravagant length
    5) Buy a hat and wear it
    6) Drive down a major highway in the left lane at half the speed limit
    7) Make sure your turn signal remains on for 45 miles but never change lanes
    8) Smoke cigars in public places and act surprised when someone objects
    9) Complain about the government but vote a straight party ticket in every election
    10) Use words like "whippersnapper" and "hooligan" in your everyday conversation
    11) Go to McDonalds every morning, buy a Senior Discount coffee, and read discarded newspapers for several hours
    12) Complain about how new technology (like 8-Track Tapes and TV Remotes) is "just too hard to figure out"

    There is much more, of course, but master the above tips and you're well on your way.

    Prof, you hooligan, Number 6 should be 'drive in the right lane' for UK residents. If I could figure this damn PC out I'd send you one of those emaily things to complain.
    Whippersnappers. Anyway, I'm off to work now, where's me hat?

    In Oz, we have the same.....slow traffic in the left, overtaking in the right.

    And yes, our steering wheels are on the right hand side. :)

    Well I guess I have the proper credentials for the "new" (old) club. 46 next month. However......I refuse to growup! I have heard my 15 year old daughter on many occasions say things like "Dad ? are you ever gonna grow up? or just plain "Grow up " I take it as a compliment !

    I'll go next, I guess...

    Real Name: Steve
    I am 34, and live in the City of Lakes, Dartmouth Nova Scotia (That is like Brooklyn to Manhattan). The "City of Lakes" because there are 22 natural, fresh-water SWIMMABLE lakes within the city limits...and 400 000 hills LOL

    I work for a wholesale paper merchant, selling everything from basic copy paper to stuff only a politician spending our tax dollars would buy. I like my job, but I love my wife and 2-year-old daughter. I like to pass time by playing FPS's, playing guitar, and reading. What I would love to do when I start making serious money is building replica planes like a Fokker Dr.I that actually fly, if anyone else does that I applaud you!

    I am a Phishhead, so most of my nicknames revolve around their music. I love music in general, but tend to gravitate more towards bands that actually play instruments, so don't ever expect to see a Celine Dion CD in my stereo. I love computers, but I have no formal training in them, unless you count 1 half-year course in Pascal in 2nd-year University. It was fun, but fraternity life soon eclipsed making balloons go in and out on-screen...

    I found this site while trying to get rid of Omegasearch, and I must say- you guys have your sh...t together. Also I find the folding cause admirable.

    Gobd- if you are that open-minded about tunes, give Gov't Mule a listen...
