Age is definitely relative.

I remember when I was little, an 18 year old looked 40 to me.. I’m 26 and an 18 year year old in my eyes looks like a kid.
This.

Older cousins/unlces aunties seemed old af. Now i realise they were not.


FWIW my cuz who is 50, is definitely a MILF, my god, hope i look as good as her in over 10 years.

It was so funny being in Year 1 or Year 2 and looking up to the Year 7 prefects as being old, wise, and mature, when they were literally 12 year olds.

I'm around 60 (going by your earth years) and I still look and feel around 25-35 of your earth years. No dicky knees, no back aches, no crows feet, no double chins, no pot belly, etc etc. I do have literally a few gray hairs popping thru, but they've been around on me for over 30 of your earth years.

There's something about the aging process I wish to discuss. I've noticed (apart from me) some people can look 50 or 60 when they're around 20-30, and when they're 50 or 60 they STILL look the same. Eg, William Burroughs or Keith Richards.

Not personally, but Vince Carter, NBA player, is 43 and in his 21st NBA season. He's stated that he's going around another year at least.

The likely number 1 pick next draft was born after Vince Carter made his NBA debut.

I remember playing junior basketball, probably started around 11 or 12. Thought I was Penny Hardaway.

Currently have a friend coaching U/12s and caught some social media of one of the games. Holy **** they are toddlers.

Mate - wait til kids who weren't born when you finished high school start uni
That happened this year
We must be very similar ages.

Saw some thing on Facebook 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer premiered 22 years ago'. That show was my high school years.

When I was in Year 12, the year 7s of that year are in Year 12 now...
Also wtf. This isn't old. When I was in Yr 12, the year 7s of that year have been graduated uni for 10 years.

Footy players date of birth in the 2000's make me feel old.
There are different stages of 'I feel old' when it comes to watching footy. When I got my first footy stickers and album from the newsagent Dale Weightman was still playing and he was born in the 50s. Most of our flag sides in 92/94 were guys born in the 60s.

In the 2001 draft, people from my year 12 school year (though not my school) were getting drafted which was kind of a weird novelty. The following year they were playing. By 2007/08 it was 90s babies being drafted which as an 80s baby was weird. Now players from 2000 are being drafted. This year players who were born the year I was eligible for the draft will be getting drafted. I'll be in my chair listening to talkback radio...
