You are Middle Aged if you;
  • Don't understand what young pheasants are talking about.
  • Struggle to read Chaucer in weak candlelight.
  • Hate rowdy taverns.
  • Constantly worry that you might have the Black Death.
  • Don't know or care who Blondel is sleeping with.
  • Tell your wife that Crusaders seem to look younger every year.
  • Struggle with new technology such as the heavy plough and the longbow.
  • Find Gothic architecture too modern.
  • Keep forgetting who the King is.
  • Dream of buying a second hovel in Farnce.

Hmm, guess you never can tell how old people are when all you see is text. i had you pegged for being in your mid to late 50's.

hmm, so your a little younger than my father then.

i wonder why the forum doesn't have gender, and age range fields. it could solve quite a bit of embarrassing mistakes. i mean, of course having the age of kids is a bad idea, but a range, like "<20, 20, 30, 40..." could be helpful in gauging a technical response.

but whatever. i am a 38 year old male, in case nobody knew, and cared. and today, i feel middle aged. weeks of no work, and then jumping right in to hauling 16 foot long pieces of composite decking up a ladder to a second floor deck makes the bones and joints ache. my father is worse, but had the age to justify it.

as for the list, #3 and #9 apply. ;)

"You are Middle Aged "

When you trim your eyebrow wires.
When you need to cut your nose hairs so you can breath.
When your ears have tuffs of hair at the top.
When the only coloured hair on your body is down there.



No technical PMs.
The last thing you did is where you should start looking.

I haven't lost my hair, it has just relocated.

Robin, you've also ruined my grandmammy image of you! I'm not going to be able to unread your words.

Love it!  But I had to do this:

You are mediEvil if you;
  • Don't care what young pheasants are all about.
  • Don't read Chaucer cause you can't read.
  • No tavern is rowdy enough.
  • Constantly hope that your neighbor has the Black Death.
  • Listened to The Amazing Blondel in the 970's.
  • Trade your wife for a younger Crusader every year.
  • Love new technology such as the rack and thumbscrew.
  • Find Gothic architecture too Goth.
  • Want to forget who the King is. (No, really.)
  • Dream of buying your peasant neighbor.

Define what young, middle aged, old, ancient are in years.

having just finished a second floor composite desk, in full cold weather gear, and the only available access via a ladder, plus trudging around in the snow... my mind says i feel about 78  :o
