Age Gauge

I just found Boy the Bear's Age Gauge, and this is fun! There are 4 different age gauges: History, Top 40, TV and Movies. I just picked some of the fun ones to share.

Did you know I'm:

  • 64 years 1 month younger than Walter Cronkite, age 85
  • 40 years 10 months younger than Ted Koppel, age 62
  • 39 years 6 months younger than Bob Dylan, age 60
  • 22 years 3 months younger than Madonna, age 43
  • 14 years 9 months younger than Cindy Crawford, age 36
  • 1 year 0 months older than Jenna and Barbara Bush, age 20
  • 1 year 0 months older than Britney Spears, age 20

And I was:

  • 16 years old when Princess Diana died
  • 13 years old when The Sign by Ace Of Base was released
  • 13 years old at the time the TV series Friends began
  • 8 years old during the fall of the Berlin Wall
  • 6 years old when Walk Like an Egyptian by the Bangles was released
  • 5 years old when the space shuttle Challenger exploded
  • 3 years old when Apple introduced the Macintosh
  • 1 year old at the time the first Cheers episode was televised
  • not yet 1 year old when Pres. Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, Jr.

It was more fun to read my grandpa's list... he was born the year talking motion pictures were invented, he was 34 when Hawaii became a state... he's just been alive for a lot more historical moments. Someday my list will be cool like that. <.g>
