Teenage Silly Meets Middle Age Dementia

The following E-mail forward is going the rounds of the teeny-bopper set.  It's called The Stupid Test, but if you're my age it's more like a time machine. As I scrolled down through the list I rolled back in time-- and by the time I hit #100, I was a fourteen-year-old again.  A bit of a dopey one. But, how much fun to remember what it was like! I think I laughed and giggled more from the ages of thirteen and eighteen than I have in all the time since.  Life was so...  awkward.  And I was such a dork.  But everything was funny!

But sometimes stupid is a good thing.

The question for us 35+ folks might not be so much have you ever done the following, but, how many of them have you done in the last five years?
