    So I had a random thought the other day that made me feel like I'm starting to get old. I know I'm a yougin compared to most on this forum, but still... I realized that in just ONE year, kids that were born in the year 2000 will be old enough to start driving in most states.... WOW. I was already riding motorcycles and stuff when the whole Y2K bug scare happened. That thought just made me fell older. Anybody have any other random thoughts to share?

    Oh a random thought? Why does everybody talk about Cobwebs and cleaning or sweeping them. Has anyone ever seen a Cob? I never have and if I did, I just didn't know........

    I would walk just close enough to the fountain to get splashed.

    When you were 37, my 4 kids were grown and on there own. They all have children of their own. That means I am a Grandpa! My future plans do not include acting my age. I intend to keep riding, hiking, hunting, and bothering my grandkids and great grandkids until my wheelchair is stuck in the mud.

    It is a carry over from middle English copweb being a middle English word for spiders web there would have been many dialect variations of the language but some words would be used in many of them
    Looking further the Dutch word for spider is spinnekop with the end part of the word kop being the spider and the spinne being spinning
    The German word for spider is spinne
    With English German and Dutch all being derivatives of the same base languages looks like kop or cop for spider is a word that would possibly have been used BC so has been in use for a long time
