How to Tell if You’re Old.
I tend to steer clear of the clickbait site BuzzFeed, but this particular listicle caught my attention. Their clickbait title was clearly a challenge: If You Recognize Any of These 35 Pictures, I'm Sorry, You're Officially Old. Well, I clicked. And, yes, I’m old.
If you have five minutes to go down the rabbit hole, take a look and let me know which of their 35 images brought a smile to your face? For me, it was the Crock-Pot, record player speeds, Phyllis Diller, and, of course, Silly Putty.
I’m curious to see what images are meaningful to you—ones that might be lost on those two or three generations younger than you? Maybe the robot on Lost in Space or the image of Paul Lynde in the middle square of Hollywood Squares? What else can you conjure up in the far recesses of your brain?
Well, you get the idea. Click for yourself.
