While true, its not looking sexy I am worried about.

Given the choice I'd rather have a little gray than be a pimple-faced kid.
Welcome to adulthood. And recognize that your time here is short.
Feel better or worse now?
Thats what im worried about.

Yea balding would be worse. If I end up like Olderguy, I guess I'll be thankful.

I feel ya Sam, I got a few (27) and am thinning a lil, AND gut keeps getting bigger, AND have a kid & wife....yup tick tock is what I hear at night when trying to sleep, lol

Seriously tho, def sucks to be reminded about dying which is something you just don't think about at all...at least not affecting yourself...

Maybe freeze yourself before you get too old, then get defrosted when they can replace any of your busted parts just like our cars... Technically we are the ones granting our cars the gift of immortality no???

Just remember that there are a lot quicker ways to go than getting old.

I was just now confronted with a dark blue Chevy Venture minivan coming across the grass median backwards at me while I'm doing 50 mph. I was in the left lane of three and it was drizzling rain. The combination of my braking and steering inputs had me in a 4 wheel drift over to the right lane and around the van (pickup trucks get light in the *** end easy). The van ended up in the middle of the three lanes. Luckily, there was no one to my right.

That got the adrenaline going pretty good.

Everything on the passenger seat ended up on the floor, but I did it all driving with one hand and talking to the office on the cell with the other.

I'm worried about living long enough to be old. Rightfully so, I suspect.

You'd rather be cramped up with arthritis, shitting yourself, alone in a nursing home?

guys come on! I turned 20 last september and I feel old as ****. I guess now I feel a little better because i'm not the only one feeling this way.

Please, a couple gray hairs is nothing. I have ALOT, enough so that most people I talk to mention it the first time they get close. My friends 22 year old sister said that my gray made me look more matuer. I thought she was joking until about 2am that night when she came over for some fun.

It can always be worse though, remember that. I had to learn that the hard way.

"I'm not afraid of death, I just don't want to be there when it happens."

-More Woody Allen goodness

Thank god I still look like i'm 14. I get ID'd then ID'd again and then still no one believes me. I had to get tattoos and grow a beard so people don't ask for my ID in a rated R movie.

When I'm 30, I'll look like a 22 year old in my prime.

My roommate on the other hand started loosing his hair in 9th grade. I think it has something to do with all the vodka he drinks and cigarettes he smokes. Eastern European thing(He's Lithuanian).

i'm still going strong at 28 with no grays or hair loss. i don't mind going gray but balding would suck since i have an ugly head, i shaved it completely about a year ago, not pretty. It looked like i used my head for too many things it's not meant for. I've got my fingers crossed because none of my uncles are at all bald, just gray.

You got me there. I was in a rush between classes. Not gonna lie, as I posted that and walked away I thought to myself whether or not I had made a grammar error. I'm a loser I know

But back to those cuban girls! God Damn they are fun! Every one should give them a try atleast once!
