actually I disagree - without many replies, this poll has nearly 100 votes and that is quite impressive. It really is interesting to see how old the regular EF member tends to be...!

Yea. One thing I wish I had done is that I should have separated the 41-50 range into two ranges...

Btw, I recall another reply to this thread, something about shoe sizes and I don't see it now... I also received an email about yet another reply that I don't see.

Re: Age Distribution

Fantastic, what a great day. They are actually people out there who are as old or older than me. (I will be soon 54) but still alive and having a great time.

Re: Age Distribution

I'm starting to feel old... It's scary to think that 18 year olds were born in 1991

Re: Age Distribution

I completely agree with mabern's uncle (as long as they are >25).

As for my age I am 30 (going for the 31 in a couple months) but I started over my life so many times that I do not feel I "accumulated" 30 years.

In my Swiss life I have yet to complete the first year so I am definitively young. And for a one year old kid my german is not that bad
