Re: Age Distribution

It seems obvious that the OP is in one of the younger categories. The age divisions are humorously very divided until age 41 and the last category, "old enough to witness the internet"? Who does he/she think CREATED the internet and drove the computer industry?

I would break it like this:

0-17 (Children)
18-25 (Young Adults)
26-35 (Adults)
36-50 (Seasoned Adults)
50-65 (Wisened Adults)
65+ (Amused Adults)

I like the number breakdown. But that's definition enough. When you start putting verbal descriptors to age ranges, you're making some unnecessary assumptions. It doesn't bring much except in making the personality outliers in the number range feel akward that they don't fit in the 'word' description.

Just a bit of nit picking.

I added those as an afterthought to push the point... and as a bit of humor.
