You can remember getting up in the early hours to watch one of the most momentous events of the 20th Century - Neil Armstrong making small steps and giant leaps.

Re: Being old is cool because....

because you get great discounts when you go skiing ..
but mainly because you don't give a monkeys' about what anyone else thinks of you!
What is old? Anybody that is 20 + years older than you, so for me anybody 80+

Well yes - but ... not much choice there, hey. Mind you my dad was like a Spring chicken until he was about 92 (died 96) still driving, still skiing, etc.

Marrying someone 35 years younger than you seems topical.

Being old is not being so shallow as to worry about what is cool or not.

it's really not that bad...if you plan it well, you get full salary, and no family yet to consume it. Nothing but disposable income--bring on full price!

(sorry for them women who do have to fight the biological clock though, them's the breaks)

No, the key is to have your kids really young. So by the time you retire the kids are all grown up, and you can spend your money all on yourself ..

Do not regret growing old. It is a privilege denied to many.
