Thanks for filling us in, Dick! It's good to know that my mom is younger than you (but only slightly). :P

And when I was in the sixth grade they didn't discuss grammar or usage; if you could not using proper grammar by that point you were rediculed by snobby perfectionist peers. Yes, I attended a preppy private school (that's public school for you Brits).

I should have my grandfather join this list... he'd make EVERYONE look like spring chickens. (OK, maybe one or two of you are his age... but I wouldn't put money on it!) And he'd tell us what tech writing was like in the WWII era. Uphill. In the snow. Both ways.

Of course, he's still on dial-up with unreliable email access. Go figure. ;)

This has been fun! Thanks again.

First, congratulations to all. From the poll results curve, it appears that most people guessed correctly their age with respect to mine. And it is also clear that my initial assertion was correct: When I was in sixth grade, most of you were not yet born.

Second, the question I asked that started all of this silliness has still not been answered. I asked...

But while we're on the subject, when I was in sixth grade (long before most of you were born), I learned that when you borrow money you "make" a loan and the banker "takes" a loan. I wonder if those of you in the banking industry still use the words that way or if that usage is now totally obsolete. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
