    56 chronologically but got stuck around 17 mentally. Though sometimes feels like I'm already 90+ mentally .

    Great to see I could choose the middle box in the poll, makes me feel a whole lot younger.

    All:

    I am in the 2nd category from the bottom

    I met Bill Gates in 1995 at a seminar in Dublin, Ireland for the Launch of Windows 95!

    He was much younger then like me!

    LOL! No, but I wish I would have.

    I wonder how they would've faired on Shark Tank?

    In Shark Tank, or as we Europeans call it Dragon's Den? Early 70's, pitching the idea?

    William: Hi, my name is William and this is my friend Paul. We are here to ask you for 100,000 dollars, for which we give you a 10% stake in our company Traf-O-Data.

    Everyone knows how important it is to know exactly how many vehicles are using our road networks. The traffic counters do their job but to get that information from the counters is unreliable and hard work.

    Kevin O'Leary interrupts: There must be a better way!!!

    William continues: Yes there is! Our device reads the raw data from roadway traffic counters and creates reports for traffic engineers.

    Marc Cuban: That means that your customers would be counties and states. You'd have to sell an awful lot of those boxes to get even close the value you think your business has at the moment, 1 Million. Is that the only product you have?

    Paul: No. We have also plans to create a simple interpreter for the Altair computer kit so that everyone could use it. In our vision every school kid has a computer, every home and office desk. We've figured that jumping in today we could be market leaders in a few years.

    Kevin O'Leary: You are dead to me, coming here with your Start Trek stories and trying to get my kids heritage invested in some comic book stuff. Go away!

    William: But we really believe in our ideas.

    Robert Herjavec: Have you sold any of those traffic counters?

    Paul: No.

    Barbara Corcoran: Have any computer companies shown any interest in you Altair interpreter? Have you shown the Altair interpreter to someone?

    William: No. We do in fact not have the computer interpreter yet, we have an idea and we think we could make it.

    Daymond John: I have said nothing, only listened. Now I have heard enough. I'm out.

    Barbara: I'm out.

    Robert: I'm out.

    Mark: I'm out.

    Kevin: I have a multi million dollar business empire and I do not have computer on my desk, now you tell every kid will have. I'm so out!

    Camera follows as William and Paul walk away, stopping by a phone booth near the building entrance. Paul puts in a coin and dials a number.

    "Mom? Could you please wire us some money, we want to come home".

    LOL, Kari! Well done!

    They would have been so wrong. Not exactly sure, but I would think either William and Paul alone are now worth more today than all of the Sharks put together.

    They ARE in a SHARK TANK!

    We put a man on the moon!

    You really don't know how many dumb questions were asked, that were not DUMB!
    Just DUMB people listening! You have to think out of the "BOX"!

    I WAS THERE!
