    Telling my children off and hearing myself say the same phrases as my parents used to say to me - that makes me feel old!
    I didn't realise there was an old farts group - i'll be 40 this year so I'm definitely joining...

    I'm 25 and slowly getting to the point where maybe I need to be like, a responsible adult or something. But then I threw that out the window last night where I got drunk for a friends birthday. On a Tuesday night.

    ..because older people *never* get drunk on a worknight........*cough*

    Actually, that shows your age more than anything else - the fact that you think that with age comes common sense and responsibility.....

    Oh @witch, with that one simple sentence you have filled my day with hope and optimism. May growing old never imply growing up. /clink

    Also: preferring drinking in pubs to clubs just means you are a person of taste, not necessarily a person of age at 16 years old I could be found in the beer garden of my local with a pint of Guinness and a cigar, extolling the virtues of pubs over clubs. That may have been a little over-eager though, I did back down from such elderly habits after that...

    27, a 4 yr old, enjoying life. Bring on older years

    I rejoice in the fact I am not as young as I used to be, but I am annoyed at being disabled and not as agile as I used to be

    Ive never liked clubs.

    Always a good pint of real ale and banter in a nice pub with friends.

    I dunno, I still make some incredibly erratic/stupid life decisions and probably don't need to; I've no big responsibilites to take care of bar staying employed and living where I want to be. Doing alright with that I guess.

    Couple of weeks ago on on 43rd B'day carrying shopping bags home 2 miles I had to stop and put me bags down about 10 times on walk home, me grip and arms were killing me too much lactic acid build up , nothing to do with fitness.

    A youngster asked me if I needed a hand and I almost , I was only about 300 yards from me door at that stage.

    I felt old when I turned 50, I felt much, much older when 60 came especially as my body is nowadays protesting loudly about the way I treated it in my former years

    Back in the day going to clubs, I'd leave with my ears ringing and smelling like an ash tray! I don't miss it, but I swear the music's louder than it used to be! Technically my hearing should be slightly worse the older I get!

    You're officially old when you realise that you're too old to die young.

    Nothing against a few pub crawls (jumping from pub to pub having 2 - 3 pints at each until we're out of it) or relaxing at one, but, clubs are so so so much more fun. You can let everything go and just be young, though i ALWAYS have to show ID, as i look younger than a fetus.

    A good night out, will make you all realize how young you truely are inside

    It is, and audio mastering engineers hate it!
