How old are you?

Saw the question in another thread and figured it deserved a poll.

Re: How old are you?

not to pick, but i would have chosen 10 year incriments. I dont mentally distinguish, say, a 32 year old from a 37. I think more, people in their 20s vs those in their 30s, etc.

Re: How old are you?

I was a lot smarter when I was 37 than when I was 32.

Unfortunately I backslid for a few years after that.

I'm waiting for the people who want to know how they should calculate their age.*

After all, with different valuations & GAAP, your average 45-year-old could experience up to 50% volatility!

Re: How old are you?

I was born on February 29, 1980. Do I count my age in leap years or Earth years?

I'm posting from Mercury. I'm having a little trouble voting my correct age because my years are only 24.1% as long as yours. Some clarification will help.

I identify more closely with canines. Should I multiply my age by 7, just to be more accurate?

I'm pretty sure I'm a cat. Unfortunately, I'm not sure which of my nine lives I'm currently on. I could have already died a few times, and have lived for decades.

I'm Buddhist. I keep getting reincarnated. Should I count just the years in my current physical manifestation as a human, or the years of all my past lives, including when I was an ant, then a chipmunk, then a dung beetle?

Hey Nords, maybe you can answer these burning questions for each of my five personalities.

Re: How old are you?

If you're posting from Mercury, why arent you going "ooh ahh hot" and dancing around a lot as you type? Hmmm?

Damn, now I don't have to wait for the other shoe to drop. You must've had a lot of fun at law school...

BTW, can I use five separate posts for that response? Should I direct one to each of your five user accounts?

Actually, I was born in June, 1980 (the leap day birthday was a joke). I'm 1 month older than your son. Probably doesn't help you not feel like an old hag?

How did you know that I had four other user accounts that I pseudonymously post under? It's that "IP logged" thing isn't it? Where's my tin foil hat? I need a proxy server...

I've got one more question for the five of you. How do you decide which of you makes stupid, sarcastic intelligent, profound posts on the forum and which of you has to pretend to work?

Work? It's overrated. I try to do as little of that as possible. I hear it'll stress you out. That's why I want to ER, among other reasons. Working just isn't my raison d'etre.

Based on your post count here during your "work" day, you do practice what you preach...
