I ain't telling ya my age, cause it's none of your Bees Wax.

I can skip and do the Charleston! For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about....


"Beeswax"? That's telling.

BTW, I'm old enough to know what the Charleston is. I'm guessing you're 142. Just kidding.
The Charleston is a little before my time but I've been know to Jive.

Ha! We learned the charleston in dance class in high school. Also the Black Bottom, the Lindy Hop and the Foxtrot.

You're only as old as you dance.

Its only depressing if you waste it.

Its all good Boondock. Your age is only what you make of it. If you will yourself into feeling old, then you'll just end up feeling worse. It sounds like you have a wonderful family, just be thankful for what you have and enjoy life.

I am about to turn 28 here in a month or so, and the 30's are pretty scary to me, but 30's the new 20 right?

Enjoy it man, you only live life once. No sense in worrying about what lies ahead. Embrace it and move forward.

Its fall and EVERYONE is depressed now. Its crazy on all the people i am talking to that are depressed. Just dont try to feel like this 'isn't normal'. You are still really young, and time goes by alot faster when you get older. Just like by this saying:

"If everyone threw their problems into the middle of the room, you would go back and pick up your own"


I dunno man, if I could change any one of my problems for a problem like "I've got too much money and free time and I don't know what to do with myself..." I definately would.

For sure.

I will take that problem off your hands...oh yeah.

plus my body is changing more....along with the back pain for 10 years, i eyes are going downhill. i have to go this weekend to get an exam and i am gonna need glasses.
i can't see certain things anymore....

last night i asked my wife if the clock on our cable box said 8:11 or 8:17 cause i couldn't tell. she asked me what did i think and i said 8:11 and it was really 8:17....when it turned 8:18 i could see that just fine...

when i am driving sometimes i lose the lines in front of me....
i try not to drive at night anymore...

Dang! Intrepid you *Super Mods* on Right on it!


I had good vision, until those
BRIGHT STAR-LIKE UFO'S showed up ALL OF A SUDDEN in 1995! Probably shouldn't of looked directly at 'em.


I can moonwalk too, that's not old.

Boondock I've got reading glasses in every room. No Biggie! You have A LOT MORE then most. A wonderful wife, a roof over your head and youth. You have Lot's of time to heal with a *POSITIVE ATTUTIDE*. NEGATIVITY will only drag you down and spread to others and you don't want that.

Don't misunderstand me please. I know things have changed. The Media and Pharmaceuticals Companies are constantly Shoving Things, down your throats! From Restless leg syndrome to 'Don't Worry, Be Happy!' from Paxil to Zoloft! It seems all the news is Negative, like *they* want a more controlled society. Take your pills and be nice boys& girls.
Turn it OFF! Take time to enjoy nature with your family and friends. You might try a Punching Bag.

I'm done!

What exactly is this "session of healing" you're talking about.

Sounds like it could be fun.

P.S. I hope you're not a man.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that the idea of getting old sucks (I'm only 19 so i don't have to worry yet).

But yeah, I can't even imagine myself as an old man. To tell you the truth I wouldn't care to live past 40. It's Not because I don't love life. I actually enjoy life a lot. It's mostly because I can't imagine myself as an weak senile old man. :shk:

It's funny how most of you fear death, i don't fear it at all, i fear old age more.

I know it sounds young, but by that age i should have already accomplished everything I'll ever want to accomplish.

Yeah but I don't know if I'd want to live past 50, looks like I only got 21 years left. That's if I don't croak in a car accident or something like that before.

Ducky, it sounds like you would be the coolest grandma of all time. You gotta show them Final Fantasy VII.

P.S. don't forget your diapers, mothballs and denture cream.

Can't disagree with that.

Thehumbleone say's

Doesn't suck at all......it's what you make of it. I can't stand being around Old Flatus's who complain, about their every ache & pain. You know the one's who immediately get those hum-a-rounds cause they're just to Damn Lazy to walk! Again the media tells 'em "If you're on Medicare and you get turned down. We'll give you one FREE!"

I was your age once kid and thought the same way. I gotta admit most old people are boring. Complaining sooooo much, about finances all the time & all their ailments. No wonder their kids take off.

You only have one lifetime & it's impossible to learn it all. Don't cut yourself short.
A positive attitude.....it's all in *the mind*. People will enjoy being around you.
Negativity only encourages distance and possible loss of a loved one.

I never could imagine myself as "an old man" either Humble, but guess what when you hit 30 then 50 seems old, when you hit 40 then 60 seems old, at this rate i am never going to feel old, the goal posts keep changing.

As far as 40 being "senile and weak", i still go and see Metal bands at least once a month, i still get up front and personal in the mosh pit, i still give as good as i get, if im sore for 2 days after i guarantee the guy next to me is also going to be sore!
Its easy to say now that you wouldnt want to live past 40 but you will be amazed how quickly that will change with perspective.
Please read this, dont take it the wrong way, i just want to point out that what weve got is precious and sadly there are some who would have gladly lived past 40.

I hear you man. I was the same at your age. I lived life fast and hard. I'd go into more detail but it's against the T&C.



It's mostly because I can't imagine myself as an weak senile old man. :shk:


Dude, I'm 5 years past your target, that makes me 45. I'd whip you in an arm wrestle or kick your butt if it got to that point and I'll debate anyone at any time on any topic. So much for "weak, senile old man."


It's funny how most of you fear death, i don't fear it at all, i fear old age more.


Nope, don't fear death at all. About the only thing I fear is constant boredom. I might WISH for death if life got to that point.

Edit to add: And I'd still be drinking many hours after you had passed out.

Maybe all you old guys are right , maybe I'm just too young to realize what I was saying.

Glad to know you guys had similar thoughts when you were my age. Maybe getting old isn't so bad, as long as I stay healthy in my old age.

Mojo, Intrepid, I agree that forties isn't even that old, maybe it's how you look at it that matters. Age is only a number anyways right?

Mojo, sorry to hear about your friend, that was an inspiring story.
