PostPosted: Wed Apr 11, 2007 7:57 pm    Post subject: Average Age of People Posting On This Message Board Reply with quote

Given that there are around 180 people registered on this board I find it strange that only about 20 or so people ever post messages here regularly.

On checking other boards it seems to me that "our collective tastes" are some what out of kilter with our peoples. I wonder if it is an age thing. Indeed are the folk posting on this board of the "older generation" perhaps.

Lets try and find out.

What is your age?

Mine is 46.

Julia,

You've got the best years of your life to come yet.

I loved being 30, was me best year - went out more at 30 than I did at 20.

Enjoy, young un. Wink

I go out more now than I did when I was 31!

It's because of my abstemious lifestyle - I actually have more energy and enthusiasm, and NO MORE HANGOVERS!!! Laughing

40, going on 30 or 20 depending on what I feel like and who I'm with - mind you, I was starting to feel my age whilst running part of the way up Simonside last weekend. Exclamation

As Andy says, 30 was my best point, whilst at the moment I'm like Peter - bags more energy now than I ever had, which is probably because I've given up a lot of things in the past fifteen years.
