Growing Old

I was born 20 years after World War II ended, which means I was born closer to WWII than to my own college graduation.  I've long thought that comparing myself to WWII was pretty extreme--that is, until a student introduced me to a web site today.  You type in your birthday and a bunch of interesting facts popped up.  This one floored me:
April 22nd, 1915:
The start of the Second Battle of Ypres in Belgium
Nearer to your birth date than today!
World War I.

The interesting tidbit I came away with is that 88% of the visitors to the site are younger than me. I am getting old.
