Nightcrawler, you can't be old. I turn 46 next month and I'm not old yet. Read my sig and live it--you'll stay young forever.

Finally I'm ousted as the oldest member on the forums once again. LOL

And no I'm not that old in my heart, just my body after trucking and concrete work, before I got smart and started my own company.

Heheheh...all these talks about old school cartoons...aahh..the memories....even though I'm not nearly as old as any of you FO...err...older personalities, I remember watching them as an 9 yr old...hahaha. (Yeah..yeah..I'll be there one day..and all that).

Anyone remember Galaxy Rangers? And Silverhawks?? Haha..those were great. Also Brave Star.

Nothing can beat the original Transofrmers. Hell, I remember when toys were still QUALITY!! Not the plastic crap that they sell today. I remember when Transformer toys were die-cast metal.

As far as Anime, that was the stock cartoon back home. Everything from Macross (err..Robotech for you here I guess), Go Lion (that's the Lion Voltron here in the U.S), Shogun Getter, Voltus V (it's in the voltron series but I'm guessing never released here in the U.S), Mazinger Z, Gundam, Armoured Trooper Votom....too much to mention.

Soundwave KICKS ######!!!!!! Megatron is pretty cool, Star Scream is one of the cooler characters.

MASK!! Mask was one of the best. Remember the toys?? With the little figures?

Hell, remember the Falklands War??? One of our reporters were there. Back home, we had coverage of that many many times a day. I guess, you guys in England remembers it too, although when I talk to my friends here in the United States, all of them (even in their mid-late 20s) say that they don't know much about it and that there weren't that many coverage.

Ahh..the memories...

Out.

No I remember the Falklands war pretty well even back then. i wasn't an idiot like most of the friends I had back in grade school/junior high. I respected and sympathized with the Brits and that bloody war.

Anyway, I am feeling down and out because I'm starting to feel old. I miss the old days before the world went all to HELL!

All this talk about old cartoons and mask and thundercats and stuff has made me feel sad for the "old days". Its almost funny calling it that. Goddddddd I hate being an adult!!!!

I guess I'm depressed because I just got my face kicked in by soup31314 because I praised him on his new gun model.........go figure. Its a 25mm semi-auto rifle cannon no less.

Actually, I loved his gun but I dared had an opinion (oh no stalker don't have an opinion...gets you in trouble). And of course being the idiot that I am I expressed my opinion. My opinion was that the real gun is only a prototype and wouldn't be a production model. Soup's response was to take his model and aim it at my head and pull the trigger.

I'm still looking for my teeth and eyeballs. :wacko:

Can some of you get together and sing the theme song to the thundercats? Or maybe sing the song to the "mask" cartoon show? It would make me feel better and it would remind me of a time when life made sense. ahhhhhhh......memories.....in the corner of my mind.....*music to 70s song*.............of the way we wereeeeeeee :mellow:

I'm 18...

BTW, no one mentioned Captain Power (remember the thing where you could shoot at the people on your TV?) I was really young when that was about.

Anyway, in a group with older people is much more to my liking. I want to kill these kids who get on irc/forums and talk like "wat is u up 2?". I regularly threaten bans if I'm an op :wall:

But anyway, GR is much like the flight sim community. More talk about actual topics rather than random thoughts and pi*ssing contest :sheep:

Necron, we are "life experienced".

Nightcrawler, nice move. I did 20 as a cop, retired over 2 years ago. Got it out of my system, now I'm looking for work again but Colorado doesn't have much available. Fortunately, I had a secondary investment I'm living off of and haven't touched retirement money yet.

WK, I haven't forgotten the age of many in the forums. It was your pic, with the "highlights" in your hair that told me this was the place to be.
