    There are a few here under 30 but I’ll be darned if I remember who. I think for the most part the conversations of styles of music here aren’t what most 20 somethings are interested in. Have you ever been on a room with 20 somethings? I know how my dad felt when he was with my friends. Almost completely disconnected in some of places I go. I know many getting into 70-80 rock but most are into new “music” electronica, some of which I actually like. But their conversations are just bizarre! I often wonder how some of them can survive then learn they still live at home, mom or dad helps with vehicle maintenance feeding them laundry for them etc. I would have been embarrassed if my folks did all that for me after I turned 15!

    “I was born before FDR died, and before Hiroshima.”

    That explains the mutant thing. Of course, having three arms does help out when you’re soldering. :)

    I'm 33 but the body doesn't feel that way sometimes, I so need to be more active.

    I’ll be 54 in July... I’m still 24 inside my head most days until my body reminds me I’m not!

    Oh but I was so much older then,
    I'm younger than that now.

    Will we still love you,
    Will we still heel you,
    When you're 64?

    I'm 45 going on 46. Things aren't going too well for me lately, so I feel as in that no-man land, when all my dreams are over without having achieved them, but the time when I can retire and enjoy is still far away.

    I think those under 25 are likely mostly lurkers. But I can think of one recent member who likely fits in that age group.
