    The fact that my daughter thinks The Stone Roses are old farts, like I used to think about The Beatles.

    Apologies for messing up the numbering on this and especially for the Google translate German but had to acknowledge the best album of 1989:

    My friends and I were comparing aches and pains and who's got the best physio.

    Seeing all the old vehicles, fashion and police technology in ITV's White House Farm made me suddenly feel old when I realised I was already at school when all that stuff happened.

    When I realise my age in years has finally surpassed the number of broken bones I’ve suffered.

    Thanks for hosting @TheOriginalSimonB . Many of the previous examples resonate but it was hitting 60 last year that tipped the balance. Being in my fifties still felt okay but 60 is proper old. And having been married for half my life. And in my current job for 10 years, longest ever in one job. And just being knackered so much of the time.

    I felt old last week when I explained to my niece what a MP3 player was. The idea of a device that ONLY played music was foreign to her

    While i generally dont care about age i do feel it having changed careers, im the trainee and most other people are way more experienced and 15 years younger!   Its a double edged sword as kids and parents dont assume you are a student but you are assumed to know a lot more than you actually  do.

    The list is endless.  Grey hair, creaking bones, increasing grumpiness.  But most of all, the amount of bands reforming, which I knew the first time they appeared.

    Watching TV series from back in the day and realize how dated they are.

    When I learnt that if Back to the Future was released now, the "past" they go back to would be 1990, not 1955… 
    This is me & how I think about time.  Then I cry a little inside.  I had a similar meme cross my facebook the end of last year.  Pointed out “That 70s Show” was set in ‘76 & began in ‘97.  In other words, a similar show today would be set in ‘98 if it was going back 21 years.  But wasn’t 1980 just 20 years ago?!?

    My car (daily driver) is older than a couple of my coworkers (full time recent college grads).
    This would be mine as well.  I swear this is the easiest car to make out of Lego, all they need to do is release a set in Jurassic Park livery!  Oh yeah & in case nobody is feeling just quite old enough yet after reading this thread, Jurassic Park is now over a quarter century old.  you’re welcome. :D.

     Also Blade Runner and The Running Man are now set in the past.
