But how old is young?
There's a mathematical formula for that question. Take your age then substract the other person's age. If the result is greater than zero, then the other person is young.

I long for the brand new pair of shoulders I had in my youth. I know this is so off topic, but I want to get surgery to fix a bone spur in my shoulder but my doctor thinks I should instead just learn to live with it. That made me feel so old. Unacceptable.
in my 50's i had what's called "frozen shoulder" too much windsurfing, weightlifting, golfing, etc...once the surgery was done the doctor told me "you should try to act your age" i told him "thanks, but no."

get it fixed, it's worth it.

I think we are stoking the ego with these threads/posts, just like someone else in DC.
Totally, it isn't that 15 years ago somebody in Silicon Valley came up with the idea "It would be so great to rule entire country on 140 character or shorter messages". That only started happening because of popular demand.

When you start telling people you're "X years young" you're actually old as f**k, so it's a very personal number. Some people may never get old based on that.

Old = current age + 10

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it.

Had to get one last jab in. Clearly I'm not here on weekends.
