    [​IMG] Last year, in response to Splunge’s claim to be twice as old as the average SP member, we ran a survey of member ages. The results showed that 35% of members were aged between 17 and 21. As there has been a lot of change in SP’s membership in a year, the time has come to reperform this survey to see just how the teenage menaces stack up against the aging geezers.

    Simple question, just select the button that corresponds to your age bracket.

    Age 20 counts as "Youthfull Rebellion"? I think I fall under the "Mighty Debt Builder", but whatever.
    I'll be 21 at the end of Sepetember. :banana: :beer: :thumb: :rolling:

    I'm supposed to be still wondering where my 20s went off to. I've already stopped wondering and been busy staving off geezerhood. :D

    Youthful rebellion...
    Unfortunately I'd have to say I'm more of a youthful resignation. High school horror-hood took all the rebellion out of me.

    At the age when women are best! That's my humble opinion NOW. And I can hear my "Brotha from an otha motha", Death Rabbit, agreeing now. 25 years old. Seeing I'm a Mighty Debt Builder, all my base probably belongs to you.

    I liked your category descriptions. I was thinking about happiness and age -- I think it was Oscar Wilde who met a woman who said that she was more happy in her middle age than she had been at 18. Wilde said, "Ma'am, please do me the honor to introduce me to your husband! He must be quite a remarkable man."

    It is depressing to think that most assume the best time of their lives is at 18 -- that probably has something to do with bad memory.
