I still use my slide rule when I am doing initial engineering computaions because it's faster than a calculator or the puter for simple aritmetic and math. Unless I am using engineering software... then, I just check the results against my "feel" for what should be. I am sure, if I was in an engineering office, young engineers would look strangely at me.

I have actually done this only realising after I had shut the front door behind me, only with me someone was on his way to sort it out. After realising my error and knowing there was no time to let the person know I popped the keys through the letterbox to pretend the keys had slipped out of my hand on the way out.

Garry and I were doing some city fishin at the pier during the salmon run. Sometimes we go down there when we don't have a lot of time. It is easier than staying home with our wives looking for imaginary dust bunnies living under the couch or something like that. Well next to us was an old couple. The lady was old ... I mean waiting for the boys to come back from France old. Cute couple. She had tossed her line out in the middle of the channel with a big bobber on it bait fishing.   

A bit later I see my buddie Jim crusin by in his 52 ft crew boat. A minute later the ladies line starts screaming (she had hooked the boat) She grabs her pole and the line is screaming off her reel. She starts playing it and playing it and playing it... next .. bam .. the line breaks off.

She turns to us and says ... that was some big fish ... he had to be huge!   Garry without missing a beat says that fish was exactly 52ft long!

MY GET UP AND GO

How that I know that my youth's all spent's
'Cos my get up and go's done got up and went;
In spite of it all I'm able to grin
When I think of where my get up and go has bin.
Old age is golden, so I've heard said:
Sometimes I wonder when I get into bed:
My ears in the bed and my teeth in the cup,
My eyes on the table till I wake up.

Ere sleep dims my eyes I say to myself,
Is there anything else that's to be laid on the shelf?
I'm happy to see as I close the door
That my friends are the same, perhaps even more.
When I was young I could slip out of bed,
Kick my heels right over my head;
Then I got older like most of us do
But I could still double-shuffle the whole night through.

Now I'm old and I'm all out o' whack,
Walk to the corner and I puff my way back.
The reason I know that my youth's all spent's
'Cos my get up and go's done got up and went.
I really don't mind when I think with a grin
Of all the places that my get up and go has bin.
Since I retired from life's competition,
Busied myself with complete repetition;
Get up in the mornin' an' dust off my wits,
I pick up the paper and I read the obits;
My name's a-missin' but I know I ain't dead,
I just eat a good breakfast an' I go back to bed.

Off a single that my German pen-pal owned way back in the 1960s.

.... when you can remember what a slide rule was/is ...

When I was a kid I read an article about the local airplane company that had built one with an 18 ft long scale, and had actually pulled it out of mothballs for some sort of special project.

I thought it sounded pretty neat, once I figured out how they worked, so I decided to get myself one of them thar sticks.

They were so hard to find in my town then that I made my own - and used it for 4 or 5 years before I got to the "big city" and could buy a "real one." (They were mandatory for the Chemistry finals.)

About 15 years later the other airplane factory where I was working needed to modify the "weight and balance computer" for one of their airplanes, and the standard model was ... ... ... a "slide rule" with specialized scales on it.

It took about three months to find a manufacturer that would admit that they still had the machinery to make one. The half-dozen that we bought cost around $6,000 each; and when they got them done we had to sign a waiver promising that we would NEVER ORDER ANOTHER ONE before they agreed to ship them to us.

That's it then. The ultimate answer. The moment that you realize you can't get any smarter and it's all downhill because you "should have known better" but you didn't listen to your elders and your youngers are paying you little heed such as you did for your elders.

This should be enshrined as the Bill D Principle.

45 years ago, I worked at a business school that still taught comptometer.....and keypunch... and a big calculator machine that did accounting and printed data-- all mechanically with hundreds of moving parts. I actually had to learn some basics of some of them.... arrrgghhh!

It isn't necessary -yet- to be 'old' to remember when a large grocery store (like I worked at for years) was NOISY as all the mechanical cash registers were running. But it was amazing to watch the repairman disassemble one of those things!

'You are old, Father William', the young man said,
   'And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head --
   Do you think, at your age, it is right?'

'In my youth', Father William replied to his son,
   'I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that I'm perfectly sure I have none,
   Why, I do it again and again.'

'You are old', said the youth, 'as I mentioned before,
   And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door --
   Pray, what is the reason of that?'

'In my youth', said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
   'I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment - one shilling the box -
   Allow me to sell you a couple?'

'You are old', said the youth, 'and your jaws are too weak
   For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak -
   Pray, how did you manage to do it?'

'In my youth', said his father, 'I took to the law,
   And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
   Has lasted the rest of my life.'

'You are old', said the youth, 'one would hardly suppose
   That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose -
   What made you so awfully clever?'

'I have answered three questions, and that is enough,'
   Said his father, 'don't give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
   Be off, or I'll kick you downstairs!'
