POLL: Calling All Geriatrics

    When I joined SP a couple of weeks ago, I did so assuming that I was more or less alone on the high end of the membership age scale; that didn’t really bother me since the quality of the posts on the Boards indicated a maturity of members not necessarily reflective of their actual ages. Since joining, however, a number of recent posts have me wondering whether I really am such an anomaly, and thus the purpose of this poll. I know that similar threads have dealt with the age topic in the past, but I’m particularly interested in hearing from people over, say, 30. (This is not to say that the under-30 crowd isn’t welcome to participate.)

    So, I’m an immature 43. How old are you?

    Man! These boards are filled by a bunch of old farts! Heh, just kidding. In about a day or two all the youngin's will have voted and anyone older than 30 will be a minority!

    Oh, and I'm 18 and a half. :rolling:

    I am 21 years old.

    How should I say this? People of elder age (is this acceptable? ;) ) are pretty common on these boards. And I'm thankfull for that. Often, they can give a whole new perspective on things.

    OMG

    I'm not alone, at age 30 I thought I was a total freak of nature here on S.P. (please, no comments on the freak of nature thing)

    No wonder Mat, Rallymama, DMC, and Sir Bel always strike a chord with me.

    As for Kitrax, Faragon (yes, I spelled it right), chevalier, and of course the Rabbit of Death, you might be youngn's but I always value your words.

    Well, I think I have some mixed feelings here.
    On the one hand, so far according to the poll, 10 people are 30 and over. That's 40% of the total (but probably not statistically valid).
    On the other hand, I'm the only one 40 +, so I’m still the oldest (I’m not sure whether that entitles me to respect or scorn); so Greenlion420, it appears that I may be the freak of nature. In any event, I’m still hoping a few more “old farts” (thanks a lot, Kitrax) will come out of the closet, so to speak.
    And Rallymama, October 23rd is marked on my calendar :)
