Well, I seem to be one of the youngest regular members here, but I know that Chris Chan is a good bit younger than me. But I Figured I'd make a little poll to see how old everyone is... Don't be ashamed you old geezers!


EDIT: I forgot the numbers! I'm 17.4548 today, who can guess my birthday? :D

Well, I'm not going to go around claiming I am a Young Adult, or an Adult of any kind, so...

I can make that "young university" or "undergrad" or "baby Us" if it makes you feel better :wink:

Interesting results BTW. I would have excepted the average to be a bit lower than it is right now. Perhaps most people are still in their "faster is better" stage when in their twenties.

well technically at 18 you are an adult, at least here in germany, and AFAIK also in america, even if you aren't allowed to do anything, and I think the term by marketing for that age group is young adult (actually 18-25), so whatever. just go by age, the names were pretty random as you can see...

and Aris, good "guess" :P Actually it's Octember thirty-sixth, 2008

Btw, klankymen, how nice of you to put in a special last option for Ralf :)

(happy silencing to everyone just in case I get kicked from the forums for that one :wink:)

I've always suspected I was the oldest poster on these forums......but after reading this thread, I'm not so certain. When you get a little older, you find it easier to estimate someone's age, even without seeing the person. It has to do with language usage, and content. Of course it is more difficult when English is not the primary language of the poster.

In any event, I'm not going to tell.....guess if you want. :lol:

I think it's funny the youngsters in this thread who have said they feel old at the age of 20 or thereabouts. Some of us oldies would give our right arms to have the luxury of feeling old at 20! :lol: You've probably got a good 60 years more on this planet barring nuclear war or a meteor strike, get out there and enjoy it! :lol:

Yes, probably. All the other 98 years old left SPCR after figuring out that their computers became instantly quiet when they switched off their hearing aids.
The person writing this has been young for 31 years now.

I've never used a hearing aid, and I don't hear my computer at all, absolutely silent. In fact, I don't even hear the television :wink:

That sounds like a mighty fine voice activated dialing solution. Did you have to speak the digits slowly? Could you speak a name and have the system automatically dial the number? :lol:

(old enough to have seen one of them, but we were on rotary dial party lines until I was about 12 when we got our own private line - still rotary)

The age distribution is beginning to look like a "normal" distribution.

If you rotate the chart 90 degrees it also looks something like a hill. Does being on the right side of the hill make me "over the hill"?

Nah. It's way skewed towards the young end of the spectrum because his first three groups are in 5-year increments, and all the rest are in 10 year increments.
