Well, I'm not far behind you. I was born in early 1970 (April 17, to be exact) Also when Nixon was president, and I voted for Clinton both times too.
Had to look it up, but you were born the day Apollo 13 got back to Earth.
Nobody EVER gets that. I always have to point it out. Not even my mom knew it.

Funny story: when we saw the movie together in 1995, I expected my mom to remark on it, but she didn't, and when I pointed it out to her, she said, "Hey, cut me some slack, I had more important things on my mind that day than what NASA was doing!"

Re: Well, THIS makes me feel old...

My father turns 70 next week and it's really making ME feel old. I'm used to thinking of my parents as middle-aged. My very definition of middle age has always been whatever age my parents currently are.

But 70 suddenly seems much much older than 69. It makes me realize that in a few years I'll be crossing into my 40s. Then I'LL be middle-aged. Ouch.

Punks. I was born when Eisenhower was president.
Ditto.

You know what really makes you feel old, when people who grew up in eighties or later start feeling old . . . .
I could make cracks about your ages, but I used to be married to an Eisenhower-era-born baby boomer. I've since considered myself to be a baby-boomer-in-law.

On a related note, having been accustomed to being a grand-uncle many times over by marriage softened the impact when I became one by biology a couple of years ago.

I'm reminded of a funny-sad exchange on Frasier several years ago. Frasier is trying to cope with the realization that he's middle-aged.

"How do you think I feel?" his dad asked. "I have a son who is middle-aged."

I learned to use a slide rule in high school chemistry class, but practically the next year in college everyone had handheld calculators and slide rules went the way of shoe button hooks. Yes, I was born in the 50's and just retired from my job which is one of the best things about getting older.
