    The guys are immature. The girls are just dumb.

    :rolleyes: Hardly.

    Again, this is my perspective as a bartender. 21-year old boys want to get shitfaced as fast and cheaply as possible and vomit everywhere. 21-year old girls act like speaking to strangers in public is some form of rocket science.

    Young people just generally suck.

    My husband still gets playboy, but actually doesn’t like looking at the pictures too much. He said that when he’s older than the Playmates’ mothers, he’s too old to be looking at the girls in a sexual way.

    It didn’t help that we met a couple, years ago at an artist’s signing, and they did not match their pics. So much makeup! He got really turned off by that.

    Now he’s more into Men’s Journal/Health for their articles than Playboy.

    We is getting old!

    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. That they are drunk had absolutely nothing to do with your generalization.

    Fine. Both drunk guys and girls are immature and dumb.

    I'm already 28 years old and back when I was 10 to 14 years old, an early middle-aged adult (from 35-ish to 50s-ish) of course seemed ancient to me, but nowadays seems comparatively youthful (with genuine aging happening at around 60+, and even then elderly people can sometimes be surprisingly spritely and fresh faced).

    Young is how I feel in my head. Old is how I feel when my body reminds me otherwise.

    We share the same age and thoughts on the matter.

    To me, a person is old when their body has reached the point where they can no longer do all the things that a younger person can do either mentally or physically. Assuming that a person is in decent shape and is in good health, then that's late 60's or early 70's for most people.

    When the wear and tear on the body really convinces you that you, personally, not only are going to die, but the process is well under way.

    Tennis, bike rides, video games, concerts, jogging, employment, chess, etc.

    With the exception of professional sports or extreme activities (mountain climbing, etc.) there's very little that you can do in your 20's that you can't continue doing well in your 60's.

    Remember these:

    Keith Richard has outlived Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Kurt Cobain. Who saw that coming?

    Next year, Mick Jagger will be a great-grandfather.

    The great thing about being old is watching the younger people go through the same shit you went through at that age. ;)

    True, but you also can't stop them from making the same dumb mistakes that you and/or your friends & relatives made, and that's sometimes difficult to watch or go through a second time. It's like watching a train wreck. You know exactly what's going to happen, see it coming from a long ways off, but you're powerless to stop it from happening.
