Ahh...my thoughts were that he was born in 1955 but the year is only 1985. I thought he was in a book or something. Good one

I thought that it may of been the time 19:55. I guess that would work.

I've heard a variant on this: "A man was born in 1955 and died in 1938. He was 83 when he died. How is this possible?" but I think I like the shorter version better.

You never specied when "today" is, ironmaiden. It could have been 1988. What you should have said is, "But today, in the year___ he is only 33."
