...a couple in their 50's giving each other 'that look'.


That is how Viagra is marketed on TV... its bought by both men and women but probably not very many couples.
That man in his fifties is a model and he gives the model in her fifties "the look" by pretending she is 24.
That woman in her fifties probably returns the look by thinking of her much younger Friend With Benefits.
Its only the marketing department that depicts a married couple as an average consumer of Viagra.

Remember when you knew lots of people who were
born in the late 1800's? I was 15 when my my great
grandpa died and he was born in 1867. Didn't see his
first automobile till he was 45. Didn't get electricity
till he was in his mid 70's.

When I knew him, he was in his 90's. He'd sit all day
by the big bay window in his daughters house, in
a rocker, pipe going, reading paperback westerns
with a huge magnifying glass. When he was a kid in
the 1870's and 1880's the outlaw wild west was a huge
deal. He was reading pulp novels about the west then
and he never stopped. At night they'd watch Gunsmoke
and Wagon Train whatever western was on, there was
a ton of them in the early 60's.

Life was so different then, it was slower. Nobody was in a
hurry to do anything.

Talk about slow. My mom has a letter written by her great grandmother. In the letter her GGM expresses concern that President Lincoln had been assassinated and hoped the rumors were not true. The letter was dated October 1865.

How about the first time you really had sex.
Big disappointment for me, I had to try it a
few more times before I realized how over rated
it was. I don't think I ever got over the disappointment.
Kinda like when you find out there's no Santa.

It had been so blown out of proportion by TV
and books and movies. Reminds me of the song
'Is that all there is?' My wife and I both laugh out
loud at Viagra commercials. They're just so stupid,
a couple in their 50's giving each other 'that look'.
I'd rather eat a nice grilled cheese sandwich and
have a bowl of tomato soup, thanks anyway..



First pizza and now sex. I hope beer isn't overrated otherwise my college career was just six years wasted.

The governments priorities are completely screwed up. Every time I see on of those Electronic billboards locally on the Illinois Tollway it says "957 vehicular deaths in 2012. Please drive safely" Which is all well and good but quite frankly that then means that I, a resident of Illinois, am probably just as, if not more likely to die via homicide (515 in just the city of Chicago in 2012) than by vehicular death, which in my estimation means, the roads are pretty damn safe. If law enforcement was more concerned about rampant gang activity than it is about raising revenue because God forbid I was going 78 in a 65, this world might be a safer place.

Since this is the “old timer” corner (and I say “old timer” with much respect), I’ve a “Remember When” that’s more of a question than nostalgia.

Remember when your 8,10, or 12 hour shift was 8, 10, or 12 hours?

I’m starting to feel trapped. All the jobs I see that are higher up the corporate ladder than low level management seem to be of a 24hr nature. In my peer group, folks are head-down, banging away on their smartphones nearly every waking minute. I used to think they were just social media / porn addicts, but the closer I got to these people, the more I found they were still at work.

E-mails, notifications, report forwarding, that’s all they do, all day long. While driving, out on the town, sitting down at dinner, having drinks at the bar, they’re never allowed a minute to themselves.

Even as a grunt I see it. No matter how mundane the issue, no matter that I’ve taken an issue, already notified LE, already got the guy cuffed and stuffed, already written the report and dubbed the coverage, already filled in everyone from a Supervisor to the CEO, I’ve got to bother my CoC and pull them off their family dinner to tell them all about it.

Can’t anyone have a minute to themselves anymore?

Perhaps. The crack houses and other drug marketplaces are valuable real estate and it might behoove a newspaper to investigate actual ownership. Sometimes its the narcotics squad that owns the crack houses but if the gangs actually own them, all the politicians have to do is vote for Code Enforcement to put plumbing and electricity back into the crack houses and revive the burned out neighborhood through White Resettlement initiatives the way Paducah, KY did by focusing on artists and gays to "turn" the neighborhood so that bank held mortgages would again have some value.

I don't know if you quite catch my drift. I know the Wizard doesn't like the linking of articles here, but if you google "The Politics of Chicago Gangs" the top entry will be an article from the Jan. 1 2012 edition of Chicago Magazine.

I've linked all kinds of articles. But he doesn't want you advertising stuff -- or things that are purely spam though. Nor quoting entire items.

Or if you mean, just putting links in your sig line --- no, doesn't like that. Which probably include links with no particular context.
There's no secret. Just know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.

Remember when Vegas was a cool place? When you told
people you were going or just got back from Vegas and
people thought that was 'cool'? Now its almost meaningless.

In 1980 Vegas was connected to Sinatra and the Rat Pack and
Elvis, even though those days were gone. Now Vegas is
a slogan. Something is gone. Overkill maybe, or its so easily
accessible to everybody.

My first trip to Vegas was in 1971, I was 16. We flew in on my uncles Cessna 210 from Colorado. Every detail of that trip is still with me. The Dunes golf course was booked the following day after our arrival but somehow after my dad had a little "talk" with the starter we were next on the tee.

Do you agree that Vegas was a 'cooler' place in the
70's and 80's? I first went in 1975 and it was dripping
in cool, just being there made you cool. I don't get
that now. Too many low class tourists, maybe. In the
70's you could see men in sports jackets and ties and
even tux's in the casinos at night. You only see it now
if somebody got married.

I too was 16 my first trip. My brother and I went to see my oldest brother who was stationed at the Air Force Base. Went back to see him again in 1980(still not of age to gamble). About 13 or 14 trips later, you couldnt convince me that it isnt the coolest gambling place in this country. As said by someone else on this forum, everybody should get at least 1 chance to see this City.

Hey, get yourself a S.W. credit card and put all your needs (not wants) on it and pay it off each month and you would be surprised how cheap a trip to vegas could be with free flights and comped rooms(NOTE... I am a red chipper). lol

My first trip to vegas was in 1981. I was stopped at an intersection, while looking for traffic coming from the side street I somehow did not see the guy in the crosswalk.I started to go and I hit the guy ,he planted his hands on the hood of my car and did sort of a half cartwheel and landed on his feet.He just looked at me and said "Hey man What the F... oh well it`s vegas" and then he walked away.Today I`m sure I would have been in a Lawsuit.LOL

While The Mirage saved Vegas it also killed the allure. Turned it into disneyworld. It is now a classic b-school case study of expanding your market cheapening your product.

The Rothstein(Rosenthal) monogue at the end of "Casino" is totally accurate. Years ago you might have seen Benny Binion on the floor watching things. Today if Steve Wynn hit the floor he would be surrounded by more security than potus.

People who never saw the old Vegas will say the new
Vegas is 'cool'. But they have nothing to compare it
to. Vegas isn't cool anymore, its loud and garish and
completely in your face over done. Its too bright and
too crowded and way too touristy. Oh well, things
change and its rarely for the better.

One thing I think is nice is that you can now walk the strip which I have heard was impossible until the late 1980s. I hate driving lot to lot and like being able to hit place near each other. Probably why I prefer Fremont st. But the "bring the kiddies" thing to me is crazy.

LOL, that perfectly describes it. It describes the Strip,
not Downtown so much. If you can ignore the cheezy
Fremont Experience light show over your head, Downtown
hasn't changed very much.

The Strip is in your face. The casinos try to out-cheese each
other to get your attention. And the tourists are totally
different now. So many fat people, pushing baby carts. You
never saw baby carts in the 70's and 80's. You never saw
hoards of Japanese with cameras traveling in packs, or
hoards of 21 year olds staggering around drunk and acting
stupid, like its Mardi Gras. There were no porn slappers.

Oh well, who cares. It is what it is.

Remember when drunk driving was no big deal? Cop would probably escort you home? Prior to a landmark case in 1985 if you killed somebody in an auto accident and hammered, the incident would have been view as .....too bad or that's life. Today, two beers and it's off to jail, community service, elevated insurance premiums, a beat down by MADD, AA meetings, suspension of drivers license and a pox on your house. I'm not condoning drinking and driving. Just an observation.

Remember when drunk driving was no big deal? Cop would probably escort you home? Prior to a landmark case in 1985 if you killed somebody in an auto accident and hammered, the incident would have been view as .....too bad or that's life. Today, two beers and it's off to jail, community service, elevated insurance premiums, a beat down by MADD, AA meetings, suspension of drivers license and a pox on your house. I'm not condoning drinking and driving. Just an observation.



I think there was always concern about it. My dad had a 1947 Cadillac and as a finishing touch he got a state safety inspection sticker from then to put on the windshield (antique cars are exempt from current inspection.) Well on it there was a warning not to drink and drive and a message that the next enforcement campaign was soon beginning.

da money, da money, da money. It is all they want and to produce some jobs making citizens into criminals to fill the prisons. There are obvious cheaper ways to combat DUIs like access to breathalyzers without prosecution, billable taxis if drunk without the money on hand, etc. My little baby cousin was killed by a drunk driver 18 years ago, and even I admit this is not the best way to handle the situation the way things are. I always found it shameful you would be sober in 1983, but drunk in 1995, and sober in 1995, but drunk in 2013. If only there was some way to get rid of those pesky little rights we have, we could all be in prison learning how to shank somebody.

I don`t think access to breathalyzers would matter,some drunks would drive anyway.
It`s very easy ,Don`t drive drunk.I have no sympathy for drunk drivers.
