Thread: Oskaar's Age?

  1. #1

    Default Oskaar's Age?

    Does Anyone know? Upcoming Birthdays list him as 21, but I've checked his stats before, there was no mention of age. One of his posts states "I haven't done an all grain batch in a long time (mid-nineties?)" So he was brewing at 11 years old? Does anyone else find this amusing?

    I suspect he's actually 42.

    So he was brewing at 11 years old?
    Knowing Oskaar, I'd say he's been brewing since he was about 18 months old! But that is just a hunch!

    That would make sense, I think I ran across a Johnson&Johnson baby brewing kit while in the mall the other weekend. It had an all-grain baby formula kit that you could transform into a pretty respectable night-cap!

    I think I saw Oskaar's name the other day when I was checking out period names for my SCA personnae...

    "Oskaar, a meadmaker by trade, was arrested and sentenced to 30 days in the shackles in the Tower of London after he was found pillaging the King's stock of mead. The sentence was to begin on this 3rd day of May in the Year of Our Lord fifteen hundred and eighty three."

    Further research into the name Oskaar mentions the King's sentence never being fulfilled, rumored sightings of a vagabond named Oskaar in wine country in Spain, and a stowaway named Oskaar existing entirely on mead during passage to the new world. Probably just coincidence...

    Of course it could have been another Oskaar...

    Given the ubiquity of Oskaar's posts, here on this forum and on other brewing/vinting/meading forums, I'd describe him as a 21 year old reincarnation of James "Kibo" Parry."

    Hm, Oskaar, whatever your exact age may be, from your hints it looks like you're getting up there. But whatever your age may be, it's your birthday, so here is the Hebrew version of "Happy Birthday to You":

    Hayom yom huledet le Oskaar!
    Chag lo sameach v'zer lo poreach
    Hayom yom huledet le Oskaar!

    (It's Oskaar's birthday today
    May his festival be happy, may a bouquet flower for him
    Today is Oskaar's birthday)

    Going to dinner with some business colleagues this evening and drinking some mead and wine! Life is good!

    Another hint:

    Oskaar completes the progression of the names in the first hint.

    Cheers,

    Oskaar

    Uh oh,

    A divergence of dates

    Here's what my sources said:

    Katherine Hepburn - 1907

    Jack Paar - 1917

    Coretta King - 1927

    George Carlin - 1937

    Johnny Miller - 1947 (Yup, the golfer with the bad taste in plaid trousers)

    Oskaar - Wink

    Yes, April babies are the best! LOL At least that's what everyone in my family told me.

    I know where you're coming from Oskaar. I bet if you listed the Bowery Boys, the Marx Brothers, the youngsters would say who? Probably the same for Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello and the Little Rascals. Happy B-Day
