    I feel like two people most of the time. On the face of it, I have the physical attributes of a sickly 90 year old. But mentally, I have stayed about the same 'age', or mindset, as when I first got married and had a kid. That was my demarcation line between just messing around aimlessly, and getting down to business. And ever since then, 30+ years ago, I'm the same guy inside. Not old, not young, just 'me'. I suspect I always will be that guy. And I suspect that truly old people also feel this way. I'm noticing it at my relatively young age because the disease makes the two "Me's", physical and mental, feel so totally different.

    While I don't like the health issues, of course, I'm grateful whenever I see that I'm still the same guy underneath. Don't want to lose that.

    I'm officially in Denial.

    I keep telling myself if I get up promptly in the morning, and work like a fool at something, and use my brain hard several times a day, I can cheat the gods of mortality. So far, it seems to be working.

    It ain't about how many years you hang around on the Globe that matters. Get out there and tear it up. You can then goof off when you feel like it - just stay active while you can because if you wait around for permission to live your life as you please, the bus will be up and gone before you know it.

    I’m guessing mid 50s.

    Cheers,

    Well this has really surprised me!

    I'm 31 and I thought there was plenty of people in here that were my age or younger! It's strange because I've been posting here for about 10 years so I must have been about 21 when I started.

    I'm glad the average age is somewhere up in the 50s/60s though. I often come here with questions like "can someone recommend a good solid state amp?" And while most kids are like "solid state is crap, tubes are great", people on here tend to say "I remember back in the late 70s/early 80s I played a [insert] that sounded great".

    So I'm glad theta so much experience here.

    My children tell me that I need to unlock the inner grown-up within myself.

    43 here, started playing at 11, and for the first time in my adult life I am now enjoying playing as much as I did when I first started.

    I haven't been around here long enough to make an educated guess, but I'll take a wild guess and say the average age here is early to mid 50's.

    I thought dog years were 7 to “our” 1.
    That would make you a trifle older, sir.
    I was wrong once, though.

    Yeah, too bad the old adage, "you're only as old as you feel" doesn't apply everywhere ...
