Joe Biden is old.

Really old. He turned 80 on Sunday and became the first octogenarian President in the history of the United States. 

He reminds the world how ancient he is whenever he walks in front of a camera, falls off a bicycle, acts creepy around girls and women, licks ice cream cones, tries to be cool, and makes another feeble attempt at keeping up with the person running his teleprompter. 

If you’re curious about what the world was like when “The Big Guy” was born, here’s some info. 

The President of the United States was Franklin D. Roosevelt. 

The population of Earth was 2.3 billion.  Since then, It has swelled to over 8 billion. 

That year, the big movies at the theater were Bambi, Casablanca, and Yankee Doodle Dandy. 

The average cost of a house was under $4,000, a gallon of gas cost 15 cents, and a new car would set you back $942. 

Gary Cooper was the biggest star in Hollywood. 

America was in the throes of World War II, and this was the year of the Battle of Midway between the U.S. and Japan. 

As for other famous people born in 1942 and would be 80 years old this year, the list includes Muhammad Ali, Paul McCartney, Barbara Streisand, Aretha Franklin, and Harrison Ford. 

Like Biden, they are all at least 30 years past their prime as well.
