Be real interesting to see the ages here. Im guessing it will be younger than say if you asked the same question of B&W owners.

I'll be hitting 31 on 9/11.

Am I really in my 30's? When did that happen?

I have to disagree that keyboards have built-in "geezer" defense mechanisms. My wife's grandfather sends the family a daily e-mail update.

It's funny content just dipped that's all. A 90 minute show in the 70's contained about 80 minutes of funny stuff. It's down to about 10-15 minutes of funny now.

Somebody has to be old around here. I'm 58 and can run 5 miles daily. Have run two marathons since I turned fifty. The mind is the first to go and well, I can't remember what's next!

Yup, the HUGE individual difference in the speed at which one's BODY and MIND gets "old" is by itself an exciting biomeical research topic.

I know I look much younger than I am (even in the eyes of Asian people), but I admit that my physical performance is not as good as even a few years ago. As for the "mind," I always try to keep this little boy in my head.

And I guess littleb misplaced the following post in an apparently unrelated thread:

littleb says: I'm 49, have 3 boys--20, 19, and 16 and I've just discovered the wonder that is axiom audio. I can't believe I actually listened to Technics for 20 years. When my wife was pregnant I found her to be more attractive. She had a certain glow, a certain smile, even a swagger I found appealing.

So, you guys work out (i.e. lift weights)? I just started again after about 8 years of atrophy. Looking forward to my best ski season ever this winter.

Incidentally, I'm at my in-laws house in Tarzana (SoCal) this long weekend. It's damn HOT! My dog hasn't stopped panting from her walk 2 hours ago.

Where do you ski? I'm either planning to snowboard at Utah or Vail this year (my back willing). Found out 2 weeks ago that I had Spina Bifida (didn't check the spelling) when I was a baby and I have one of my lowest spinal bone not forming properly. Had this really bad back pains since last September since the 24 hour mtn bike race I participated in. Didn't stop me from boarding in Whistler last January.

I'll be 43 in a week, and starting to notice some disconcerting things. For example, I was facilitating a program for some of our college interns and made a reference to the original Star Trek series...none of them knew who Captain Kirk was, and the mention of Mr. Spock drew blank "what's with the old guy?" stares...where's a phaser when you need one???

I do Tahoe -- plenty of different resorts and terrain to choose from. I just started skiing about 4 years ago and am just moving up to blacks, so great places like Vail would have been lost on me before now.

Yeah, through my college years I used to ski competitively (slalom), and afterwards I always loved those mogul slopes in ski resorts. Lately, though, I realize that my leg muscles aren't up to it anymore...

I steer clear of all moguls when I can. At 6'4", by center of gravity doesn't agree with them.

I remember once on last season I got a little brave and tried a mild mogul run at the top of an easier black diamond. Even then, I whimped out and did the sidestep down the mountain.

I hope to hit some of those slopes in the West one day. I've been lucky enough to have been boarding to Whistler, Interior BC places, Vermont, NY, Montreal, Quebec, Maine and once at 12,500+ in the Andes Santiago, Chile. This year I hope to hit either Vail or Utah before my back lets out due to spinal issues. LET IT SNOW ALREADY!!!!!!!
