I dunno about that Cubed: I still got all the right dance moves for my old age. :P

You need to get out more and get some more fresh air, buddy. After all, you guys up north get to experience Autumn in less than a couple of weeks, whereas we Southerners have to wait until November for Fall to come into our region.

I now feel younger at 21 than how I did at 18.

I hope that continues into my 30s.

Well, what do you mean by prime exactly? I mean, Cubed, from what I gather based on how you describe your life on these forums, you don't seem to be out there living a Carpe Diem/YOLO type of life. Once you're off work you just go home and sit on your ass all day talking Turtles, comics, cartoons, movies watched at 1.2x speed, superheroes and video games. I've also never seen you talk about partying, drinking, etc. when you were younger or having gfs, or travelling abroad, or doing sports or having exciting hobbies in general. So how exactly will your life change when you're 50? Didn't you say you'd still be playing video games and watching Ninja Turtles until you were 100 years old and on your death bed? Sure, physical prime is in your youth, but you don't seem to exercise at all and claim to be a short and skinny guy who mostly lives off soda, pizza and fast food. So it's not like you're very physically active at the moment either.

And lastly, you don't seem to have any friends at all.

So explain to me what you mean by "prime", please. Because I imagine you basically just living in a very "nerdy" and out-of-touch comfort zone bubble similar to me but even worse. I'm not even trying to be mean. But you sound like someone no one would want to read an autobiographical book of. And I mean the real you, not your internet persona, because I'd DEFINITELY buy a collection of your best quotes found on the internet from all over the years and all your discussions. :trazz:

I keep forgetting how young you are. 7 years of an age gap between the two of us, really? It's kind of hard to imagine since you don't really sound THAT young. I keep thinking you're like 24-25 for some reason.

That's how I try to look at it as well, like Rogue. Just not nearly as impressive since it's dark blonde... (Or supposed to be in the places it no longer is!)

Still not too happy about it though as I always felt my hair is one of my better traits and now it does this and more-so than I'd hoped. Though my dad and his mom both went entirely white very young (and always worried about that all my young life), so I try to be grateful that my mom's DNA has at least kept most of particular genetic hiccup at bay for a lot longer.

I know someone who, on the other hand, is almost 60 and just barely any hint of gray. Still has like 99% of her natural color. Gotta say I'm a little envious. lol

I'd rather go gray than go bald. But bald dad and bald paternal grandfather... yeah. Guess it was asking too much. Both me and my brother have receding hairlines but they've remained the same since we turned 20-21 or so. And he's already 36 years old. And to think a male barber told him that he'd go completely bald by the time he'd be 30...

I don't think being bald would fit with my personality and look. I'm a thin guy, not a muscular or burly guy. If that was the game I'd gladly become Stone Cold Steve Austin or Goldberg.

And I turned 29 yesterday. I'm officially in the last year of my 20s now. I'm getting old. Help me, Cubed.

CyberCubed 11-16-2019 03:23 PM

God every time this thread gets bumped I realize its already been 4 years since I made the thread. My 30's are going by even faster than my 20's did. WTF is going on?

I'm now older than my favorite actors were in the shows/movies that came out when they were in their prime. Jesus Christ.

MsMarvelDuckie 11-17-2019 07:04 PM

*Sigh* Cubed, in two weeks, I will tell you what it's like to be 43. But meantime, I'll give you a bit of wisdom from old age- your youth goes by faster than you realize, but even more so when you waste it. Like Prowler said, you should get out and DO things, have actual hobbies, go have fun, drink, party, go on dates, take trips, see new places near you, try new foods, and just LIVE. Go to a concert, meet people, try a new restaraunt, find a park or museum to visit, take up a hobby or a sport like golf, rc plane flying, something that gets you outdoors and into contact with people. Or go for a long drive someplace you've never been, take a weekend to a different city, or a cruise. Anything!

Maybe living in New York makes the idea of travelling not that interesting to him, who knows. If you lived in arguably the most known city in the world you'd probably think the world beyond it isn't that interesting in comparison. Idk

A guy i went to junior high just died , age 39......so people shouldnt complain about living to say age 60 when the alternative is much worse

IndigoErth 12-29-2019 01:18 PM

You know you're old when you accidentally type 1999 instead of 2019 as if it wasn't 20 years ago, nor feels like it... Just did this. lol

CyberCubed 12-29-2019 09:28 PM

i posted this thread way back in 2014.....aaaaaahhhhhhh

It's like I just posted it yesterday. Dear god, I may make a thread about turning 40 in the next 5 years. Jesus Christ.

Andrew NDB 12-30-2019 01:09 AM

People talk about "mid life crisis" and whatnot, and we usually think this is about 50. But the average life expectancy of a male is about 70. So at 35, you're at mid life.

CyberCubed 12-30-2019 07:00 AM

I do not intend to leave this mortal plane until I’m 99 years old at the minimum. If you look at how Stan Lee made it to 96, how William Shatner is like 88 and still working, or how the Queen of England is like 150 years old or something, I plan on making it that far as well.

They were also all rich and had probably zero life stress regarding all of the fundamental things that nip away at the rest of us. That standardized life stress that is eliminated by virtue of money literally takes seconds off of your life everyday when you live a normal life.

CyberCubed 12-30-2019 06:52 PM

As long as you eat healthy, don't develop cancer or any other life threatening disease, and keep in shape, there's no reason why most normal people can't reach 80-90 years old.

DarkFell 12-31-2019 04:38 AM

^ Seems legit to me. I can become a popsicle and therefore, beat out disease and death.

Or, I can live, get a life-threatening disease and die anyway regardless if I ever reach my 'golden years.'

I sorta prefer the latter. Being mobile is way better.

I notice a lot of people tend to say they get aches and pains for the first time in their 30's, or they notice they get tired more or lack energy, oddly enough I don't have that yet.

I mean I'm only in my early 30's, but I still feel the same now as I did when I was 22. I haven't noticed any changes in my health or energy. I feel the same now as I did 10 years ago.

I have just turned twenty-two.

You're really young, 'Cubed.
