The second clause is as important as the first. I don't follow movies too much, but it isn't hard to make me feel old ("Oh, you're a decade and a half already?" "Oh, you're two decades already?" "Oh, you're a quarter-century?", etc). --Quicksilver (talk) 20:39, 17 August 2013 (UTC)

You can still use this in the future. Just add n-2011 to each time on the chart. (Where n is the current year.) So for instance, in 2014, the 16 year old one becomes 19 year olds, and the year is "Just under a decade ago." 09:45, 22 June 2014 (UTC)

Although not intended to make anyone feel old, the Gettysburg address begins by noting that it is 87 years since the Declaration of Independence. (A score is 20, so "four score and seven" equals 87. In 1873, 1776 was 87 years ago.) 21:25, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
