    We have a lot of youngsters that pop in here for a month or so, and then are gone. If you look at our longtermers, I would guess that the center of the bell curve shifts up to maybe 30'ish...?
    I think Andy, Bill, and I pull the average up to more like 45 when you just look at moderators.

    I'd say both those statements are pretty accurate, just from those regulars I've met at the meets. Maybe somewhere around 28-30 for the true "regulars."

    And no wonder they can't stick around and learn something from the old fogies, this darn generation's all screwed up with their attention spans cause of the world wide web and the i-thingamajiggies!

    Body-wise, I feel like I'm about 30, most of the time, perhaps a few years younger. Then there are those odd times when I'm sick, or just "off", and my body feels every bit like its 45 years.

    I turned 39 on Monday, and I've already had a lumbar discectomy. Am I old? So is it all downhill from here, fellas?
