    -You thought the original Star Trek series was so cool because it had things you knew could NEVER become reality during your lifetime, like a cordless earphone (used by Uhura), a ship computer that could actually respond to commands made by a human voice, a wireless communicator that let the user talk to someone way out of walkie-talkie range, a high-definition flat video screen at the front of the bridge, a device used by McCoy to conduct a non-invasive medical procedure, and Spock's portable tricorder that provided information and could easily be held and used with two hands.

    -You remember first-hand when mood rings, pet rocks, and lava lamps were cool.

    -You still think of the original Black Knight as a new machine.

    -You were born less than 5 years after the Detroit Lions won their last championship.

    -Some of your favorite lines are "Sorry about that, Chief," "missed it by THAT much," "would you believe...", "and LOVING it," and (my favorite line by 99, when agent 43 died) "you're worth two 43s, 86".

    You quote from a Monte Python skit on a thread like I did earlier tonight and realize only a fraction of Pinsiders will have any idea of what you just did. https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/monopoly-for-millennials-yes-it-is-real#post-4693970

    When you worked as a store cashier and actually punched the price of each item into the cash register.

    Quoted from Jaeg:

    My first job was to put those small white sticker prices on each item in a grocery store.

    At Kmart, we were high-tech with the manual price sticker gun that you would load with a roll of stickers and set the numbers for the built-in ink stamper!

    Quoted from o-din:

    Reminds me of the time I was just about done stuccoing the last window of my house and came down the ladder and stepped on the hose nozzle that dropped me into a wheelbarrow full of stucco which proceeded to tip over and almost break my arm.

    Sounds like a living game of “Mousetrap!”

    When you’re in a store and halfway through a conversation with a man about his little kid, after you mention that you just became a grandfather this year, he starts calling you “sir.” (posting for a friend )
