    About five year

    Quoted from zr11990:

    Ok, here is a store. Besides the obvious things aging brings on you become the old creepy guy to young girls even when you are just being polite to a young woman. I have a parrot that will scream his ass of and wake up the whole house if I don't take him on my morning walk with my dog. about this time of year the high school cross country girls start running along the greenbelt trails at the same time my mobile zoo and I are walking. The girls all think the bird and the dog is cute and want to pet the dog and play with the bird. These girls are 16-18 years old, great shape and wearing less than what a bikini would cover and they are all gathered around me talking a million miles an hour and squealing about how cute the bird and the dog is. At one time I would love all those cute girls around me but now it just makes me feel creepy. I try to be nice and look at their faces when I speak and not act in any way ungentlemanly but I just feel creepy. Then when one of them sees me with their parents and they say hello to me and their parents ask how she knows me and gives me the stink eye its really weird. Is this just me?

    About 5 years ago, over drinks and a cigar after a comic show, a friend of mine complained about there being nothing you can do without being the "creepy guy". When he was younger (20's), and I was teenager, he was a good looking, hip, counter-culture, not quite hippie kind of comic dealer. I was shocked to hear this, and even by his acknowledgement, I wasn't at this point yet.

    Now I am. Clearly.

    Quoted from jhanley:

    Yeah, I remember doing something similar but with cardboard wings. Of course I fell like a greased anvil to the ground.

    We went the homemade hanglider route (hell, it was the 70's and it seemed like surfing or hangliding was on Wide World of Sports every week). Off the two story shed. Somehow bones were not broken.
