Re: Older people - How do you define 'young'

how about leaving the coast behind and spend a while in a mountaneous region? We have frosty winters, snow, tourists, Christmas markets, endless forrests, high-calory food and a gazillion sorts of beer.

I love how you're all defending the drunk children.
The point was that drunk guys are just immature, but drunk girls are just dumb.
Fine. Both drunk guys and girls are immature and dumb.

Better?
I was always the DD [Designated Driver] whenever my friends would go out drinking. I agree with your first assessment, RoJoHen. It wasn't sexist, merely observation.

I was in high school when both of you were born.

Thanks for making me feel old. I needed that.

Nope, just finding out how much older some other posters are that I thought were closer to my age.

LOL I finished school in 1984. And I watched the moon landing live on TV.
I was born in the year both the Rolling Stones and the Ford Mustang had their debut (I'm older than either, though ). And Lyndon Johnson was US-President and Nikita Khrushchev was President of the USSR
Oh, and later that year BASIC was invented.

Australis, you beat me
