Congratulations...You're Old
« on: April 10, 2017, 02:14:05 PM »
Just saw a brewery post on Facebook about their Trivia Night featuring Harry Potter.

As I know next to nothing about it I think I'll pass. ;)

Wish it was closer.  We used to play Harry Potter Scene It all the time when my son was younger.  Also read all the books, twice (once on my own, the 2nd time reading to my son).  He has since read them again by himself.

Same here, Chumley. I'm not antisocial by any means but I just can't find a reason to care about having one. Ehh, each his own.

I have shoes older than Harry Potter.  Probably a few t-shirts, too.

That'd be an interesting question next time the AHA does a demographic survey.  How many of us are old luddites with no facebook?  I'm in that camp.

I'd bet a pretty small % nowadays. Ehh, whatever. My wife spends my share of time (and yours) on Facebook, so I guess the universe balances out pretty nicely.   :)

   Betchya don't still use a flip phone ;). I wonder who's the most prototypical Luddite.
    I for one tend to distance myself from outfits I would otherwise do business with, or be more active in when they just assume that everyone uses, loves and couldn't live without their smartphones and other "devices". And yes I realize that I am blaspheming hear. Sorry ;D.

I spent most of my money on beer, tools and guns, the rest I foolishly squandered on stupid stuff!

I guess that makes me a young luddite then. Facebook was great up until the feature creep set in. I haven't used it in probably 5-6 years.

Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

In many ways, I'd be better off without mine. I keep it for the homebrewing forums and cat videos. Otherwise, I try to ignore the nonsense.
Well...I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer
