Nolan: There were no TVs back then. There were no cars.He pondered a minute, and then gave me his famous ornery smile.
Me: What are you talking about?
Nolan: There were no cars in the 70's.
Me: There were cars in the 70's.
Nolan: The sixties?Then he went back to playing the Wii. I guess to the mind of a 5 year old the 70s (when his parents were born) and the 60s (slightly before we were born) are ancient history. Times that were so long ago that surely no TVs or cars could have existed. I'm feeling very old right now.
Me: There were cars and TVs in the 60's.
Nolan: Oh. Well sometime long ago there were no TVs or cars.
