I'm taking this as a personal insult!

Yes, I am one of these, I don't wear those pants though.

As for the oldest thing I own, I think it's my vinyl record player.

A native american mortar/pestle...these have a name but I forgot what it is. Found on my grandparents farm in the 30s...which was built on/near a very large indian settlement. Many arrowheads and other artifcats have been found as well, but those aren't with me.

I also have some old fossils of plants, dewgongs/manatees, megalodon teeth, fish, etc

2 troglodyte fossils that are at least 200 million years old are sitting on my desk.

My oldest possession is probably an antique buttplug, a family heirloom which was given to me by my great grandmother and has been in our family since the early 19th century. I use it every night.

...right. My Phacops beats that estimate either way.

In terms of human-made objects, the oldest thing in my room is probably the copy of Watership Down given to me by my father... the book's older than I am.


I make stuff like this and this with these people. And sometimes I make cute games too.

Well, I'm glad you called me out. I meant to say trilobite and didn't catch myself until after I posted. I was waiting for someone to reply before I did so I didn't double post.

Now that that's cleared up, the last of these went extinct roughly 250 million years ago. So, they can't be any newer than that, logically they can't be any younger than that. They could still be older.

Dinosaur bones. As for man made stuff, I have the Wind and the Willows book which I'm pretty sure is a damn sight older than me (and in better condition).

I dont know. Age doesn't mean shit to me. You can give me a 1000 year old stone elephant necklace and i'll still leave it at the bottom of my dresser.

I would say my MIDI piano, its from 2001 or something

I have a cool rock that I found when I was little. That's probably pretty old... or fake. I thought it was cool because it was shiney and black and it weighed a lot less than you would think it would for it's size.

Also, an old mechanical pinball machine from the 70's.

On an unrelated note, this OP'er scares the shit out of me.

Various fossils, including a several million year old trilobite.

Man-made, probably some jewelry. I doubt any of that is more than a couple hundred years old, though, except for an old arrowhead.

It isn't all that old, but my grandpa gave me this awesome Knight Rider belt buckle from when the show first started to air. You don't fuck with Hasslehoff. I have a legit arrowhead as well, but who doesn't have that shit?
