36, feel about 54 today, but my brain is 23.  6 foot, too much wieght.  Likes pina colada getting caught in the rain. I'm not much into health food, I am into champagne.  Whoops, the fillings are picking up radio again.   Sorry
I drink lots of coffee, have a 15 month old baby girl, and like to swim.  Work in biotech.

It's pretty interesting that this board skews older. No offense of course, I'm a few months away from picking a higher age bracket (29, turning 30 in August).

I think it may be the reason I've always came back to this board. One, the civility is non-paralleled, which may have a lot to do with the fact that once you get a bit older you stop tending to think your movie choices are the be-all-end-all of movie taste. That's always a factor when you're dealing with obsessive movie nerds, and if you watch the movies we watch, yes, you are an obsessive movie nerd. Two, the sheer breadth of movie knowledge. What we have here is six decades of actual movie watching when it happened. It's not like going back and watching movies several decades old, almost any movie discussed here was literally watched by somebody when it came out, and it was watched in the prime of movie-watching life. That is, the crazed twelve-year-old who was scared out of their mind by what any other person would consider ridiculous.

I still think this board is the greatest repository of knowledge for movies that nobody else cares about. Nobody will ever be able to teach a class that approaches the level of knowledge displayed on this board.

Of course, you are all movie masochists, like I am. Nobody else even wants to watch these movies. We're the last bastion of history, folks! For posterity!

23. These revelations make it clear why I like this board so much/why everyone gets along so well/why I sometimes feel out of my element TongueOut I always wondered how some of the folks here knew so much about cinema, turns out it's good ol' experience.

Say what you want about growing old; it's better than the alternative.

According to the poll 60.6% of the members are between the ages of 30 and 49, but since there are 1290 members and only 33 responded I kind of think the data may be skewed.
I believe that your are as young as you feel and while I may grow older I refuse to grow up.

If you grew younger you would know the day, hour, and minute of your departure from earth.

...but your intelligence would prevent you from realizing it was happining...so maybe we ARE getting younger as we get older. By the time were in our 90's...we won't even care about being old or dying...just happy to BE.

My brother Richie was very much into Zen phiosophy. He asked me what the sound of one hand clapping was. I told them there was none...it took two hands to clap...as in it takes both the yin and yang to make a whole. One dosen't exist without the other. It takes both to BE.
