Poll:How Old Are You? Ted Shepherd got me wondering.

Ted Shepherd mentioning he was 71 got me wondering how old people who post here are.

I just found this poll and voted 70-74, so far the only one in that bracket of 27 total responses. Anti-aging medicine is a great current interest of mine. Probably not of much interest to people so young as the rest of you are.

I'm 52, will be 53 in January. Looks like my age range (50-54) is the most popular, for now anyway...

I think this board's posters are pretty much self-selecting for the 40s and 50s, maybe a few more in their 60s off to one side of the bell curve.

I'm more interested in an anti-aging lifestyle. I'm not sure what happens to the posters in their 70s. I hope it's just because the novelty wears thin...

It would be interesting to see what percentage of each age bracket are retired.

Sorry Sarah, don't be upset that you're not 40 yet, it'll come soon enough.

More likely that the 70s people didn't become familiar with the internet/web, so we don't hear that much from them. But, being pretty old, myself, I'm coming to have a considerable interest in this "anti-aging lifestyle" you mention, and the "anti-aging medicine" that Ted refers to.
