Just a thought ...
amount of 50+ old people that act the way the OP described ~ 75%
amount of 50+ old people that are sceptical and thinking individuals ~ 25%
amount of 50+ old people that act the way the OP described and are reading/replying on ATS Forum ~ 0%
amount of 50+ old people that are sceptical and thinking individuals and are reading/replying on ATS Forum ~ 95%
What I am trying to say is that there are ignorant people among all ages and that all of you - particularly because you read this thread here on ATS -
are the most wrong persons that should have a dialog about this because all feel personaly involved by the therm 50+ but are not matching the
description the OP was pointing out in any way.
I even bet that most would be with the OP when you were talking about this in more detail (honestly it is my belief that most older people are in the
state of mind of doing nothing - just keep quite and hope the best - only a few years until retirement kicks in and they can finaly start to "enjoy"
their new free time... I think most of the 50+ in this thread wouldn´t support that attitude either)
btw just because this was mentioned a couple of times... wisdom and experience has to be obtained ...you just do not get it for free just by aging
as Kurt Tucholsky once said
"Experience means nothing. You can do something badly for 35 years"
