40 is NOT old. Neither is 50. 60 doesn't have to be old.

Old is an attitude, not an age level. We have to members of our parish that are both over 90 years of age, but neither of them is OLD. They both have a great outlook on life, they enjoy themselves and they are still engaged in life to the fullest.

You can be "old" at 15 if you refuse to be a part of life.

Nobody should ever be considered "older" at 40. That is literally the prime of life. I remember when I was a teen, 40-50 seemed ancient. But, when i got to my late 30's, I was really amazed at how many really beautiful women there were in their 40's and older. How many of my friends were getting more handsome, instead of looking "old".

Please, change the listing of this forum to just "The over 40 group", and take that "older" part off. It is insulting, and it is simply wrong.

Or you could get a sense of humor and stop being so defensive and judgmental....(behaviors which, by the way, according to your definition, make you 'old').

My mother used to say that I was 32 at my birth. Which makes me 98, as of right now.

Still not as old as I was at birth, I've often been told I was already a crotchety old man of about 90 even when I was born...

The crotchety part came later, for me. I was mature, dignified, restrained, and bookish, from birth.

I have an excellent sense of humor, and and find many things amusing in life.

I do NOT however find having people telling us that 40 is "old" amusing. There is absolutely nothing "Old" about that age, unless the person claiming that it is is mentally about 6 years old.

calm down medic.... it's just that i would imagine there are more folk on this board under 40 than over 40...so i'm pretty sure that was the reason that 40 was chosen...it ain't that bigga deal...don't sweat the small stuff :fyi: :wave

And then you go on an even more extreme rant which shows just how little you 'get it'....let me put this as simply as I can:

Lighten up

I admit to feeling much older at 40 than I did at 20 or 30. Chronologically I'm in my early forties, but Dr. Oz would probably say my real body age is 102. Out of a dozen aunts and uncles only two lived over the age of sixty, so there's a good chance I'm past middle age. I belong in the cellar with the curmudgeon winoes. I've become a lot more vocal and intolerant in my old age. And I like it.

:twisted:

Pope Benedict XVI is almost 85 years old. He just met Fidel Castro a few days ago, also almost 85 years old. You can watch the following video:
