    Perhaps we should have a senior members group but how would you know the true age of a prospect.

    If I needed a caretaker I'd apply to EddieRUKiddingVarese to take the job. Eddie seems like a wild and crazy guy and would probably let me get away with just about anything on this forum. And yes, I was there at the Big Bang Eddie. Like the universe, I've been expanding ever since.

    You seem to be addressing Eddie, yet you are quoting my post. Mistake?

    You and I obviously have a different concept of what a Big Bang is all about.
    I should have known better than quote one of your posts. It won't happen again.

    If you made a mistake, admit it and move on. No need for what you wrote.

    Honoured to know who you are Joe but be careful that much expansion can create a vaccum and we know what to much suction can do

    My father taught me to stamp out my age with my right foot. He gave up on me very early.

    Especially after post #63 has been edited to take out the derogatory reference which prompted my reply.

    I'd just like to point out the disparity between this poll and one that Argus posted in 2011. It seems the demographic has changed rather drastically. Our TC population is aging!

    Here's Crystal's current poll:
    10-20 years old 7.32%
    20-30 years old 17.07%
    30-40 years old 14.63%
    40-50 years old 14.63%
    50-60 years old 26.83%
    60-70 years old 37.32%
    70-80 years old 0%
    80-90 years old 0%
    90-100 years old 9.76%

    Now here's the old poll from Argus (admittedly with far more replies and votes)

    10-19 26.60%
    20-29 28.08%
    30-39 12.32%
    40-49 10.34%
    50-59 11.33%
    60-69 6.40%
    70-79 3.45%
    80+ 1.48%
    This fits with my hypothesis that within the last 6 years or so Millennials have basically avoided online discussion forums in favor of the significantly more superficial forms of online interaction, especially Instagram, but also snapchat and twitter.

    The population of a given forum hasn't literally aged, it's just that the younger people left for the trendier platforms and the older people haven't.

    Don't even get me started on what I think about this phenomenon.

    I just want people to think I am younger than I really am, is that a crime?
