Looks like Photoshop job to me. Unless she went under the knife a few times to get "tightened up".

As my first boss out of college liked to always say.... "She was good in her day, but her day is done".

Sounds like the female equivalent of "He looks OK, but his batteries are dead." Yes, women do say things like that.

Heckle at the TV? I thought people come to this forum to heckle each other.

Oh wait, that's the impression that the OP had.

By the way, my TV has been off for quite a while. Hmm... Perhaps that explains something.

Logging on to a website with a computer is for old people. Can't see the poll with my phone. I'm 49.

The stats for this poll look like they are aligned with the baby boomers. Those would be between ages 52 and 70 according to Wikipedia.

Also am impressed that 210 people participated in the poll so far.

OK, so evidently the totals for active and 'most ever' include bots and spiders as 'guests' unless the site owner installs a mod to remove them from the count. I wonder if people reading via the app (or Tapatalk) get counted correctly? hmmm...
