How old are you?

Recommended Posts

After the thread about how cool our community is, saw quite a few mentions about age. Anyone willing to share...

 

I'm going to be 30 this year. The big three-zero.

Add an anonymous poll to the thread asking for the age. Not that I am shy to tell my age, but it's just more comfortable this way. I'm 27 and I know among the regulars are people aged 20 to 50 something. :)

I fit into the 101.5 - 101.6 age category.

 

Enjoy your youth. Things only get worse later on. -_-

Absolutely. Had I known what I know today beforehand, I would have lived my life very differently. Oh, and I second the suggestion with the anonymous poll. I am not comfortable telling everyone THAT I AM ALMOST FOURTY YEARS OLD!!! Oh god, I am so old I even have grey hair in some places!


My Eigenvalue is bigger than your Eigenvalue.

I'll be 40 this year too. I don't agree with the "life gets worse" sentiments. I remember people telling me that too, and thank goodness they were wrong! I had no idea how to be happy in my twenties. That was fun, but life is much more rewarding now.

Pfft, age gaps become irrelevant after you leave the education system. Granted you get more experience and feel like you're some sort of creep for wanting to socialise while older (I mean really, 99% of people who PM'd me have said "sorry I know I'm old I'll stop bothering you"!), but that's something that people stick on themselves as they grow up! I'm only 25 but I have very close friends older than 50, it ain't no thang.

Old as the City (TDS) :P


Task is not so much to see what no one has yet seen but to think what nobody has yet thought about that which everybody see. - E.S.

I'm 25

 

Also I don't consider "old" an age rather a mental state when people want to have an excuse for getting lazier, fatter and grumpier! Good food, good exercise, good friends and good beer are the keys to leading a happy and young life for as long as you want ;)

I feel like a little kid now. I'm 20.

 

Join me at the toddler table, I'm 18.

I'm 38...but will be turning 39 next Month. Don't feel old at all but I supposed a 2 year old and a 6 month old have contributed to keeping me in shape. lol

 

Plenty of older and younger friends too. Anywhere from 18 to 60+. It's all about people anyway, not age. :)

In the mid 20's, but I certainly wish I was younger!

 

Wish I could hang right around 22 indefinitely. I can't understand the people with good lives that say they "want to die some day" or the naturalists that believe humans "have to die" (actually, I suppose I can understand them as I used to think the same way when I was younger and--at least I feel--dumber). Life has too much capacity for me to want it to end--too many experiences, too many things to learn and explore. Mind you, I didn't always think this way: for a while I was bored with life! This idea seems so insane now, but having experienced it myself I can sympathize with those who are victims of that terrible illness. Now I wake up every day with an unquenchable fervor--sometimes I even lose sleep as a result of it. It really is cruel how short life is given, e.g., the expanse of the universe.

 

Here's to the potential for science to prolong my life! I'm not going to waste time being anxious over my death--that does not make sense either, but if the opportunity to substantially prolong my life ever becomes a reality, I'll certainly take it.

 

I'll become a lobster if I have to.

25 years old, although my body tells me something different :P

 

But I think that the fact that there are many "old" people around here may contribute to the fact that this forum is really *normal*.

 

I'm not an internet guy at all, and besides this forum I'm not a part of any so-called social network or whatever. And if I see what tone there is in some other forums, I actually don't want to be.

 

But I agree also on the statement that the age does not really tell you much about a person. I mean it's a rough orientation point, but nothing more. Young people can learn a lot from older ones, but the same counts vice-versa. (Especially for those old, grimmy "life gets worse if you get older" people *cough*, Sotha, *cough*). ;)

45 here. Man, I'm surprised how many younger folks there are here, considering Thief is over 15 years old. It's great though, don't get me wrong. Anyway, I hope to still be doing all this stuff when I'm 65 too.

I'll be 42 in a few weeks. The only thing I miss from my 20s is my free time.
