Ha! I'm 45. If this forum had been around when I was 21, I would have been on it then. Obsessed with ER.

I'm 58 (will be 59 in July). I plan to retire July 2014 when I turn 60. I guess this in not exactly ER by the standards of this forum, but it will suit me well enough. I can only pray my current good health and relative vitality follow me into a significant portion of my retirement years.

Old enough to know better but young enough to learn.

Mentally, 19 between the ears. Or less depending on how silly I feel on a given day.

19 here! The silliness involved at this age is too much for me to handle. I don't even know if I could try and trick my brain to act even younger
