Ha, maybe old is not the word, I still got a couple years til the big three O hits. I think anachronistic is probably what I meant.

But hey, can't help it if I just like all things retro, if I had my way guys'd still be in frocks & top hats with massive mutton chops, gals wearing petticoats with jackets & parasols, Victoriana all the way! And certain coloured folks won't be allowed on certain parts of the town - oh wait that'd be me - maybe not ALL things retro. :lol:

Retro is good as long as we don't have to go back to the "bag of sausages" old hairnet helmets :|

Just a bad joke. :D Gelbwurst is a type of sausage with brains in it.
