I'm 33 and I have never had a sip of coffee in my entire life. I never get tired during the day. It's awesome.

I just turned 31 yesterday. I bought myself a dirtbike last week, as a birthday present from me and to me. The one thing I noticed is the ground feels a lot harder than it used to, and leaves much more of a lasting impression.

I turn 30 this year.

Last week I noticed that most of my friends were still in their early 20's. The "car" group always seems to stay the same age and its only me that gets older.

Fortunately I have a GF who is 24 and puts up with this and always has her friends around.

I'm 25 and though I don't look over 18-20 I definitely feel it.

In August I start on degree #2 (Mechatronic Engineering) I'm going to be in school until I'm 29! At least I'll look like I fit in with the others in the program, yay for a second bout of FSAE!

You bunch of pussies. I'm 51, have a wife who is 36 (yes, is the answer to your question), have more toys than I can play with, more money than I really need and I'm having more fun with life than I ever have. Age, pfffft, it's just a number - get over it.

I hope this needing sleep thing hits me eventually, because at 24 I can't ******* sleep for ****. It's 9:30 and I have been home from work since 2am, and have to be up to go back at 3...

Cheaper insurance in 4 months!

I can't wait to be old, like 70+ old, so I can act senile and get away with outrageous **** just by saying "I'm old".

I'm 30 too... Hope I'm not bursting anyones bubble, but there isn't really a magic insurance rate drop at 25... its slow and gradual, mine dropped more noticeably before I turned 25.

I'm 21, I look 16... I've gone thru my partying stage and have no ambition to go to clubs and get drunk every other night.

I honestly just want an endless racing budget, a decent size garage, a good DD, and I would be happy.

Looking as young as I do sucks, my opinion is rarely respected, especially around old men in miatas


I'm looking forward to my 30s, because I'll still look 20 something.

Same here, I'm 24 and feel like I look in my teens. Might not be everyones view of me, but that is how I feel I look.

Dman Kids ... all about 30 eh?

The reason why a 27 year old is in the best shape of their life is because they are 27.

I'm 67, soon to be 68 and just now starting to feel old(er)

My knee was hurting the other day and a coworker said I had bad knees. The logic escaped me as on occasion, Iíve had a headache and don't consider myself to have a bad head.

18 between the ears, much older in actual <------ "There is that word again" years.

Perception is reality.

Only 200 lbs? I've always been skinny fat and I reached 200 lbs at one point.... now my bad knee means I only do light squats....

I'll be 23 in March. I'm not looking forward to it as I'm still in college and most of the girls I see are 18 or 19.
