Back In The Day

This is an expression that I always associate with Stan <1011 (for some reason :???: ), and conjures up halcion days of the great Victorian engineers. I can picture it now, Bazalgette is re-working London's sewers, IKB is building ships and railways, Telford has bridged anything worth spanning and the young Stan is building a Lego flow bench in his nursery.

As the phrase seems to have entered common parlance, when was "back in the day"?
There is no evidence to support the notion that life is serious.

Back in the day I didn't have fake teeth, fake ears, fake eyes, a fake knee, a heart full of 8 stainless coils, and everything worked. "Golden Years" my bony butt. :cry:
