I'm sorry, did I break your concentration?

I've often wondered if I'm the oldest fogey here, I'd like to get an idea of the age range on this forum, so I've set up this poll in 10 year increments. I've never really cared one way or the other about my age, it's just a number to me. I still feel like I did when I was 18 - 20 or so, still do most of the same things, its just that now I'm sometimes sore the next day. I am 56 years old, born in 1952, Harry Truman was President, no one owned a TV and having a phone in the house was a luxury, and when we finally got one it was a large black thing with a rotary dial. Now we have a 46" flat screen hi-def TV, Netflix, cable, a wireless phone with extension in the den and both my wife and I carry cellphones. The world has changed a lot in 56 years.

I am 44 and still act like a teenager as much as I can, much to the annoyance of my longsuffering spouse!  Just tonight she informed me that I probably should not belch the word "YORP" at the top of my lungs while my daughter is recording her homework on casette for her science teacher.  Odd woman.

Are we talking mental or physical age? I'm 44, but my wife says I act about 14. (I don't think that is a compliment.)

16 right here, and you'll all be happy to know, I find rap to sound worse than a screaming banshee so I have that going for me.  Mentally though it depends.  I'm sometimes five, twenty, or eighty.  It's kind of wierd and hard to explain, I try to act my age but my mind is all over the place.  All messed up.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

It is because you are 16, it will stay that way until you are in you early 20's and it will begin to tapper off up to about 30.
At 30 you start getting more serious ... time to stop playing around and start working (really working) seriously thinking about the future. You realize you're not going to save the world so you forge ahead without it. At 40 you're getting set in your ways and have little time for stupidity and likely you're raising a family thinking about college for the kids, retirement, investments, etc. etc. Can't say what 50 and beyond holds not there yet.

Yeah, but sometimes I am thinking about an amazing future, then I'm coming down to reality and a low level job that I am genetically designed for, then I think "wouldn't it be wonderful if it turned out I was Aquaman."  See, I warned you I was insane.

I'm 42 now but I don't feel it and I've been told I don't look it either   Cheers

I think I'm pretty serious generally, but I have a nutty sense of humour which I don't show until I get to know someone.  I'm pretty secretive as well.  I don't tell people much, even if I've know them for a long time.  I've been fighting turning into a Grumpy Old Woman, but the pull is very strong!

That's what happens when you get over 40.

See what the future holds for you?
