This is gonna be a lot of fun!
I love when people try to reveal their age without actually giving a number.
Did you ever used to see a game called “Fool the Guesser?” at carnivals and fairs and amusement parks?
It’s kind of like that!
Now let’s play with people from AskReddit.
“As a kid, my favorite cartoons were the Dino-Riders, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, Talespin, DuckTales and Inspector Gadget.”
“Russia built a nice big wall in Berlin for my birthday.
Wasn’t that nice of them?!?!”
“Had Kangaroo shoes parents had me keep a nickel in them just in case I needed to use a payphone to call home.”
“I grew up playing Pokemon when I was younger, and as a teenager made mix CDs of songs I bought on iTunes with gift cards from my Dad.”
“I saw Return of the Jedi, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Robocop, Goonies and Ghostbusters in the theater.
First music I ever bought myself was Run DMC’s Raising Hell.
Transformers and GI Joe were the hottest s**t.”
“Grandpa had an 8 track player in his car, my dad had a tape deck, and I was the s**t with a Sony discman mounted to a little shock absorbing plate in my first car, using the headphone to cassette adapter.”
“I came home from school one day and saw that Reagan was shot on the news.
Also, I knew Alexander Haig was wrong, wrong, wrong and that with Reagan shot and Bush in transit, Tip O’Neill was supposed to be in charge because we were learning it in school.
I literally knew more about the line of succession than the Secretary of State.”
“My family rented VHS tapes from Blockbuster when I was a kid.
It was a big deal when we got a VHS/DVD combo player when I was in junior high.”
“My dad got a computer from work.
Said it would help me and my sister with school work. It had windows 3.2 on it.”
“I graduated high school just before computers were supposed to blow up because of the year that was coming up.”
“Elementary school for me could be described as: Yo-yos, Pogs, Beanie Babies, Tamagotchis, Pokémon Red/Blue.
Middle school was 9/11.”
“When I was a kid, we didn’t watch reruns of Friends, we watched reruns of The Brady Bunch.”
“I was old enough to remember watching the fall of the Berlin Wall, but not old enough to understand what was happening.”
Now we want to hear from you.
Tell us your age without actually telling us your age.
