Five-Oh!

Well, aside from my wife and stepdaughter and stepson, I really have no other close family with whom to share this. Therefore, I just wanted to make the announcement to my little "online family" that as of today I have managed to survive half a century on this wonderful little oasis we call Earth. Yep, despite all the odds against me, despite all the reckless and hazardous endeavors I actively sought over the years, and despite numerous attempts by many unsavory individuals to end my existence, I have somehow reached the milestone of the big five-oh. Honestly, when I was but a younger and much more naive pup, I never expected to reach even half this age. *chuckle* Yet, to my amazement, here I am. Oh, and while I am here, I would like to extend a most heartfelt and sincere "Thank you," to all my AR friends who have helped me learn, grow, and gain so much strength and knowledge over the past few months since my first joining the site. Wish I could buy you all a drink!

Happy Birthday Tin-Man, the

Happy Birthday Tin-Man, the big five-oh is a milestone. May you never rust, may your oil never oxidize, and that there is always a can of WD-40 near by.

Here's my B-day gift for you. Just don't blow any fuses or strip any gears.

Happy birthday youngster. I

Happy birthday youngster. I really hope you have a great day.
You're an odd sort of bloke, the kind I like to keep compny with. I like to think oddness is a component of longevity; it stops you from stressing out. Here's to your next odd 50.
Cheers.

Happy birthday youngster!

Happy birthday youngster!

Here's Billy Connolly's advice for when you reach the next milestone.
Never pass up a chance to have a pee
Never waste an erection, even if you're on your own
Never trust a fart

Well, I guess I'm already a third of the way there, because I already don't trust my farts. lol

Thanks a million, guys. Been

Thanks a million, guys. Been a great day so far. This evening promises to be... uhhhh... entertaining, also. (New bottle of Gentleman Jack standing by for the festivities. *grin* )

@Nyar: I will wear the title with great pride. I've even started practicing today on being more geezerly.

@Q: Okay, I suppose technically it's not really a birthday. I'm just using the manufacture date stamped on my ass to tell how long it's been since I was rolled off the assembly line.

@David: Uh-oh. Looks like I need to make a special trip to the automotive store to get some oil with a higher viscosity.

@Grinseed: I would much rather be odd than "normal". "Normal" is soooo boring. lol

To anybody else who might post after this, be advised if I respond later this evening I am likely to be tore-up-from-the-floor-up, and therefore it is possible that things I post might be more bizarre than usual....(if that is even possible.)

Wow. The great five-oh. Saw

Wow. The great five-oh. Saw that several years ago. Now I am catching up with the six-oh. Damn. Too close.

"Wish I could buy you all a drink!"

Then you'll just have to buy us all round trip plane tickets. ;-)

May all your long years to come be as safe as they are long.

Hmmmm.... May just be cheaper then to send everybody one of those miniature bottles of liquor. lol

Gracias, Peurii. Would

Gracias, Peurii. Would definitely be curious to see what the world looks like fifty years from now. Still waiting on personal skycars to become popular, like in The Jetsons. *chuckle*

Happy 50th Tin Man! You reached a milestone and know this, "Studies have shown that people that have more birthday's , tend to live longer"!

@TLB

Are you sure those studies aren't biased against those who no longer have birthdays? LOL

You can! Just send me your account details and password and I will promise to only use your credit at an approved bar just up the road from me. Trust me.....

@Old Man

@Old Man

Well, as long as it is an approved and respectable establishment I suppose that would be okay. But rather than my credit card (from the Bank of Emerald City, of course), how 'bout I just send cash? Do they accept Monopoly money there?

@ TM

@ TM

Monopoly money? Is that what they are calling the US dollar now? Wow, the ol' pres has certainly done a great job so far.
And yes they do , but they prefer credit cards, c'mon clanker, trust me *thinks* Im a...priest, nah, politici,pschologis.... nah...ummm...aha USED CAR SALESMAN! yeh...so just the numbers of your card,including the 3 on the back, you can send gift vouchers or use Western Onion if you want, don't worry if the voice on the other end sounds Indian or Nigerian, its all good...and your computer, oh wait...your birthday will be great! .

Happy 5-0.

Happy 5-0.

For some reason, I pictured you older, as if you would have seen TWOO in its initial release. But lo and behold, you are actually younger than me. I really hate that.

I hope someone gave you a couple of good squirts of WD40 in all your important places.

(edited for atrocious grammar mistake, seen has checked in for saw)

Yeah, it kind of makes me wonder when he went in for upgrade that they didn't wipe some of his memories and restamp that manufacture date...

@Arakish and NewSkeptic

Well, if it makes you two feel any better, my clunker of a body definitely feels older than it is most of the time. Of course, that may have something to do with the fact I "drove it like I stole it" over most of my years. lol But - hey - at least it's been a fun ride! *chuckle*

arakish's picture
And that is exactly how I

And that is exactly how I feel sometimes. Stole it so I drove it... Of course, having two surgeries in a ten day period two weeks ago makes this body feel like I have smashed into a building...

Keep it clunking...

Now go away for another year!!! I got you the same thing I got you last year but this year I had it gift wrapped.

@Cog

Awww... You really know how to make a guy blush....*tee-hee*...And I shall cherish this year's gift just as much as last year's. You're so thoughtful. Hey, like I told Old Man, if your local bar accepts Monopoly money, I'd be happy to send you enough for a few rounds. You know, since I can't be there to buy you a couple myself.

Do robots get birthday

Do robots get birthday spankings like humans do?

Tin-Man's picture
@Jared

@Jared

Well, yes and no. Although I do enjoy a good spanking now and then (*pinky finger to lips like Dr. Evil*), I usually make the spanker sign a waiver that releases me from any liability should the spanker incur any injuries during the spanking process. Ya see, I had my hind quarters upgraded to titanium a few years ago during my military days when I was regularly getting my ass chewed for various reasons. Therefore, as you might guess, there is a considerable risk of injury to the spanker's hand/wrist/arm should he/she get a bit over-zealous. Otherwise, robots enjoy a good birthday ass-smacking just as much as anybody else.

Happy belated birthday!

Happy belated birthday!

I really should take the time to visit the hub more.

At first I thought this thread was titled as an old slang term for cops, "five oh!"

Remember: the older you get the more your life expectancy goes up! (Which is technically true.)
