People have been citing nasal hair and going bald. I used to have nasal hair, but recently my nostrils have gone bald.


Is that because of all of those scientific things you have been doing over these years?

Indeed I'm wondering if there is some sort of graphical demonstration of this phenomenon?

I get that call from my brother every year, and I tell him it must have been delayed in the post, because he is too tight to actually send me one, even last year for my 50th.
Thats what comes from being related to a Salford fan. Miserable Fckr


Mine arrived in the post today, just after I'd gone out. I was just clueless, which I'm putting down to age... at 36. :D

Getting a call from your sister to wish you "happy birthday", being asked if you got your card and not having a clue despite it only being a couple of hours since you opened the half dozen you'd recieved.


6 cards you are popular

Whilst working, I regularly walk to my van and wonder what it is I want out of it by the time I get there.

And I haven't reached 50 yet. :(


I've been doing that since my teens. I think it's something to do with altitude, as it generally occurs between the bottom and top of the stairs.

Watching the Brit awards the other night and *genuinely* not knowing who almost all of them were. Not bothered mind but it used to be the case that I'd at least heard of popular acts.

I was at the Brits and I was delighted when one of my work colleagues wanted to go home at 11.30 - I was a gent and made sure she got home safely rather than head to the jam-packed after show party.
Im definitely getting old.

When filling in your date of birth on a website and you have to scroll for some time through the drop down box before you reach the correct year.

                Lee Radford rang me the other week....I knew Hull FC were a bit desperate but I had no idea it had got that bad.

The primary school I attended was replaced a few years ago, the replacement was shut last year for another replacement. Now that makes me feel old...

Seeing a tweet from Josh Charnley this morning wishing his dad happy birthday and noticing that his dad is actually younger than me. :(

my secondary school was relaxed about 5 years ago- maybe more (Buil Hill HS) & my Primary was demolished about 3 years ago (Seedley) after over 100 years of serving the educational needs of Salford.

Everything I grew up with in Salford has gone, schools, swimming baths where I learned to swim, the pub where I first drank (The Royal aka The Widows at the top of Cemetry Rd) & the Willows where I saw my first game of RL

Not Frederick Road Baths, or Swinton Baths by any chance?

The primary school I attended was demolished,and an o.a.p's home built on the site.So I may well end up back there.

Both better than Blackfriars pool. It was used as a threat when I was learing to swim, pass your length or race the roaches at Blackfriars.

Most of mine are over 40 years old. One is so old, it isn't even in stereo! Sgt.Pepper's, from '68, was available in stereo before anyone complains, but it was also sold in a mono version and I only had a mono player and thought the stereo version wouldn't work properly :( .

If you remember when Pet Shop Boys - It's a Sin was number one, that was when I was born.

If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

Like it was yesterday. In fact, and this is a true indication of ageing, probably better than I can remember what happened yesterday. :(

You are very, very young.
