Things younger than Republican Presidential candidate (oh, and did I forget to mention war hero?) John McCain

Am I being “age-ist”? Maybe. But maybe not. The world is a pretty complicated place right now and I’m thinking that it’s not such a great time to elect our oldest President ever. So sue me.

LSD is younger than John McCain.

LSD was first synthesized on November 16, 1938 by a Swiss chemist named Dr. Albert Hofmann – who recently passed away at the ripe old age of 102 (so much for clean living).

  9. The movie version of Gone with the Wind is younger than John McCain. The publication date of Margaret Mitchell’s novel, alas, was a few weeks earlier than Senator McCain’s birth.
