This Will Either Mean Something To You, Or It Won't

 

It's a heavy moment, the first time you realize you are older than Han Solo.

Well what a conundrum, are we to take it that you refer to the celluloid Hans Solo of Star Wars fame, or the Ford himself.

I will assume the former, and I will also assume the galaxy far far away was happening at the same time as the film was shown, so that would make you about 33 odd.

Hans did have his own spaceship (well sort of), had bedded Princess Leia (and by some accounts you may still have a chance there), there is not much else really, well apart from, 'nice shooting kid'.

Much worse to be born looking like a Wookie, then feeling the age of Hans :). And on that note
I think someone is going to claim the Wookie defense, very shortly.

Alone's response: Actually, I was basing it on Harrison Ford's age when Star Wars came out. And I'm not saying I just became older than him, I'm saying I just discovered that I was older than him.

Dear Admin: It gets scarier than that.

I told a guy,'You know you're getting older when police officers start looking like little boys.'

The guy said, 'Here's something worse. When you're a patient, the doctor comes into your room, and looks like a kid.'

I think the moment came for me when I recently saw some Marines in the airport and thought for a few seconds they were middle-schoolers dressed up in camis for a stunt.

I don't know TLP to post random, interesting things only something with a purpose. That said, I wonder if this is what he was getting at;

If we were dazed for a moment by this realization it was to show a Narcissistic tendency to see ourselves forever as a character in set age and type in contrast to who we are now at this point in life. No longer the young, interesting and popular person but an older, weaker and ultimately less than we thought we were.
