The best version is the original on the album Who's Next, although the live version has Daltrey playing his harmonica a bit.

Wait a couple of years.
Maybe not. The number of 40 and 50 year olds (especially males -- I hesitate at calling them men), dressing and acting like a 15 year old child seems to be growing.

Rpgue has a point. I mean have you seen safe spaces at colleges?Just think of all of the fun you have to look forward to offending the snowflakes. You can eat tacos in front of them while wearing a sombrero. Or you can (oh the horror!) disagree with them about something. Anything. The scenarios are endless.

Before you grow up you must decide what you want to be when you do grow up. Some of us could never decide.

mossy is the Ancient of Afternoons who babysat Adam and Eve. Everyone else is younger.

You heard the expression, "she is older than dirt"? Well they were talking about mossy. Literally.

Truth is mossrose is a sweet young thing. And I will turn 75 next month.

rogue06
08-19-2016, 06:10 PM
Ok.
It is a sad day indeed when folks no longer trust the word of a rogue and a pirate on such matters :candle:


:idea: I know! Why don't you ask Apologiaphoenix for The Truth™ concerning the age of mossy. Surely, you'll trust him.

TheWall

We never say anything about her "behind her back" that we don't say right in front of her.

For most folks real life as an adult makes teen angst look like the good old days and brings about a yearning for a time when problems were so simple.

TheWall

I always found it that teenage problems could be summed up like this.
1. Being told to act your age
2. Trying to be mature and failing.
3. Angst.
4. Hormones.
5. Loneliness
Adult problems seem to be more like
1. Scheduling.
2. Budgeting.
3. Traffic.
4. Contributing to society

Senior Adult Problems include
1. Avoiding laughing too hard cause you might pee or fart
2. Not even getting to show your ID card before the cashier gives you the Senior Discount
3. Restrooms where those darn lights make your hair look gray or silver
4. Needing to find your glasses so you can look for your glasses
5. Wondering why the garage door keeps opening and closing when you try to turn TV channels

In many ways adult problems can be summed up by one word: responsibility.

In some ways I was kind of like a mafia godfather. I almost always knew who did what and how they did it (including who actually melted the toilet seat mentioned in another thread) and folks came to me to "fix things" for them. At any point I could have turned someone in to get myself out of trouble but I never, ever did.

High-school for me was more like this.
Band. Awesome. Marched in Pasadena and in Ireland.
Math. Struggle.
English. Man I like reading except wurthering heights.
Physics. No. No more.
Forensics. Awesome. Also made math fun.
History. Cool stuff. Our teacher was a boss. She broke up 3 drug deals.
Honestly though I like college way more.
