Great montage

I have never been twenty.

How is that great it makes absolutely no sense? "I've 5 degrees, a great scientist" What in the hell does that mean?

And no it's not one of those "It makes no sense and that's why it's funny."

I've been twenty many, many times.

Can't get away with it anymore and have to tell the chicks I'm forty now.

Even that's wearing a bit thin

I'm a whole "person old enough to drive in the US" older than 20.

In cat years I'm 252 years old.

I've lived over a third of a century.

When I was growing up...
  • Cassette tape technology was brand new.
  • LPs and 45s were the mainstay source of music.
  • 8-tracks were still prevalent.
  • CDs didn't exist.
  • DVDs didn't exist.
  • VCRs didn't exist.
  • Microwave ovens didn't exist.
  • Cellular phones didn't exist.
  • Cordless telephones didn't exist.
  • Pagers didn't exist.
  • Cable TV didn't exist.
  • The internet didn't exist. Actually it's predecessor did, but it wasn't publically accessible. And even if it was, it wouldn't have mattered, because...
  • Personal computers didn't exist.
  • Video games didn't exist. (Space Invaders, the world's first popular arcade game, was new when I was about 8 years old.)
  • The world's smallest computers filled a rack the size of a vending machine.
  • No video devices had flat screens.
  • Video cameras were so expensive they were only for the rich.
  • MTV (and anything like it) didn't exist.
  • HBO (and anything like it) didn't exist.
  • Distributed porn could only be found in magazines. Porn in motion was called "hiring a hooker".
  • Drive-in theaters were common.
  • Television had 13 channels....via the rabbit ear antenna sitting on top of it.
  • Cars had points. (The old fogies will know what this means.)
  • People born before 1880 were still alive.
  • Legos didn't have fancy custom-designed sets. Only simple blocks in four different colors. And we could build almost anything with them.
  • What couldn't be built with Legos could be built with an Erector Set.
  • Dirt was actually a fun toy.
  • The closest thing we had to a video game was a few hundred green plastic army men and a BB gun.
...and I wish I could go back to it all.

Elderberry, can I borrow your machine?

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.

Wasn't this year a leap year?

I was also thrown off by the last frame.

that was a great compliment that made me grin broadly like this:

to me, it's so simple even a baby could tell you what it was about! It's a simple message warning about the dangers of meddling with nature. what happens is this scientist, questing for eternal youth, has fashioned a machine that will forward/reverse you to whatever age you wish to be, and 'lock' you there indefinitely. the scientist tries it out, but it doesn't work as planned, and takes him back to being a helpless baby whilst retaining the same 28 year old mind. i could say more, but it's only a bit of silly fun

it seems most of us hold our youth in special affection and longing.

it's simple, the machine went wrong and turned him out a baby! Rather too young, but then he should have accepted that he had his 'twenty' eight years ago, and lived as a 20 year old for the same duration as everybody else - a year!

Quote:

i don't retain them. i only have the 'current' one, that is in circulation! however, i can mostly remember them in my head, and we can't yet share memories! (this was, in a sort of way, a sequel to 'Twice the Twit' with the same scientist! (sequels are never as good and i'm no excpetion it seems)

Quote:

no. i just found it on google. originaly i was going to use old pictures of me going through the years until i was a baby, but too much trouble to do....

Ah I see, the last frame is his internal monologue. I think if he still retained his knowledge that he would still be able to speak normally, albeit a bit high pitched, because I think babies vocal cords are developed enough.

I remember when I was twenty. The year was 2002, I had a crappy job where all I did was sleep the day away and yell at a few kids, and good times were had by all.

Honestly I like it better being 22.

Disreguarding the inane attempts at humour by our resident "comedian artist guy", I rmember what it was like when I was 20. I had a kick ass job, I had just bought a new computer, a new car, and I had developed a strange relationship with a girl I had known from 5th grade. I wish I was 20 again, too. So much shit has happened since.
