Re: How old are you bobbym?

C'mon guys if bobby was that old he wouldn't even know how to work a computer. But I think our estimation is safe to say that bobby is at least five years older than I am. I'm 22 btw. I think.

Re: How old are you bobbym?

My YOB can be found by solving this little puzzle.

Once you've worked that out all that's left for you to do is to find out if that is actually my YOB.

Hi phrontister;

You shouldn't have gotten into this.

I'm 22 btw.

I have socks in a bag that I haven't washed yet that are older than that.

That's simply not true. Many old timers easily made the transition to computers. They stay hidden, laughing inside at the young people who think being thirty means your soylent green.

Re: How old are you bobbym?

Bobby, you just made yourself sound older than you actually are. Green? That's really creepy I will ask this and maybe I'll figure out the rest. Are you older than MIF?

Green?

It's from a movie.

I do not know how old he is. I have never asked him. It is not important.

Hi phrontister;

On second thought I may have to use you as a bullet shield so do not leave just yet.

Hi Sarah;

Thanks!

If you get given a choice with the anticipated hail of bullets, ask for 'Chocolate Hail'...to which I'm very partial!

You can't say that now, Sarah. It's your thread, your question. You asked.

Re: How old are you bobbym?

Hi Sarah;

Don't be upset, these attempts to discern my age will come to nothing. With phrontister to defend me I am indestructible. Remember in bobbym the b stands for brains and the m stands for mighty.

Re: How old are you bobbym?

"watch my mouth" excuse me? I said "darn" in my last post, that's D-A-R-N which I-S N-O-T a curse word which is why i said it rather than the other one.

And btw even if I had cursed you could've phrased that nicer Sarah Rabekah, "watch my mouth"??
Pfft!
I would said "ok mom" as sarcasm but thats not right seeing as you're almost 4 years younger than me XD!
