    29 is old, despite what others your age may insist.

    I just (March 23) turned 27. With 40 being the new 30*, I don't think 29 is old. But, you're only "old" if you've settled for something you don't love. And the good news is you can always "quit your job" and start over.

    Hell, at least wait until 30...

    Ha!

    The fact that you're 25 and have 300+ rep while I have only 40+ rep makes me feel sad.

    I'm obsessed with ages. My one consolation is that Alexander the Great didn't get his start until seeing a bust of Julius Caesar at 32. Taking into consideration life expectancy at that time, 80 is the new 30. We've all got plenty of time!

    What does age and rep points on a forum have in common? I don't get it

    29? Old?! OLD?!!!! Why, I... if.. what... when... splutter... grrr. I'm 38 and still young damnit, no matter what my work colleagues might say.

    Mind you, I plan to go out to a rock night club this evening where I will almost certainly jump in the moshpit, headbang recklessly, get drunk and probably snog some 20 year old before the night's done so, if I am growing old, I'm doing so disgracefully and that's alright with me.

    Alexander the Great didn't get his start until seeing a bust of Julius Caesar at 32
    You have that the wrong way round. Caeser got upset when he saw a statue of Alexander because, by Caesers age, Alexander had already conquered the known world, and much of it that was unknown before he began his campaigns. Actually, the story's probably apocryphal but it's a nice way of expressing just how extraordinary Alexander was and how much he achieved in so short a time (he was dead at 32).

    24 here, but I definitely don't feel old. I'll wait until I have a little rugrat running around to make me feel old.

    Uh, no. You sir, are an idiot......wait, quick wikipedia check confirms what you just stated. OK, so, wow, I guess I had that backwards. Damn university History requirement! However, the idea stands. Plus, Alexander The Great conquered his known world quite quickly. So, I think I feel worse than I did before...

    Yeah, you're old, dude.

    6 years old isn't that big. You can still beat him at basically everything

    If it is a her...well wait until she gets interested in boys to feel old...At least that is how I see it.

    Nonsense! it depends on the available time you have to answer on the forum and the probability that you WILL get rep for your answers, not everybody takes time to do so, and since when you are on the forum. I don't think age is important in that case.
    -------------------------------------------------

    I'm 26, which I think is still considered young even if I know ppl that thinks its old but I think you only get old when you start thinking you are.
