I think the nostrils would have worked better on a grittier, less ridiculously designed TMNT! Those films are definitely bad and the look of the turtles is the first clue! The lack of story and insistence on making yet another live-action cartoon have further cemented in the public mind that this entire franchise is for children. It shouldn't be.

Back on topic though, I am having a lot of side effects whenever I eat rice, no matter how many fibrous vegetables or bits of meatless protein I put in it. This makes me feel my age. I basically had a hard time accepting that I can no longer eat as I did in my 20's and get away with it!

Perhaps it's time for you to make a thread about turning 40, Cubed.

I can't believe it's only about 5 years away for me. What the hell is going on. I remember making this thread like it was yesterday.

My 20's flashed by before my very eyes. My 30's are going by even faster.

I've only turned 30 about 5 months ago, and am already wondering at 40 will be like. It's odd to think I'll be 39 in a decade. When I was, let's say, 20-25, 40 still felt like a long way to go.

Life began speeding up around 18. Then it sped up again at 22. Would you believe I barely noticed or remember being 23 and 24? It was like I was 21 one day and next day I was suddenly 25.

The transition to 30 was easier than expected, though. I guess by the time I'm 38-39, I won't care much about turning 40 either.

Lol, relax, guys. It's not that bad. Just a little depressing at times.

When you realize we all live the same finite time to about 80 years old, no matter how "young" you still feel, it's a little odd when you realize half your life is already over.

Things that make you feel old:

When as an adult the 2014 TMNT film doesn't seem like it was that long ago, but the young girl who played kid April in a quick flashback is (according to today's newest TMNT Google search results) already 18.

Darn kids always makin' us older.


Wow, I had no idea she was the older sister in the A Series of Unfortunate Events on Netflix...

Well 30x2 is 60. Granted a lot of people die before 80, but I'm not sure I'd consider half my life to be over yet. Plus, how can you be so sure you won't die in a car crash or something when you're still young?

No need to ever go that far. Just look at these forums. Snake was what, 12 when he joined this place? How old is he now? 19?

Hush, you. lol



It's sad that the teen years seem to take sooo long to end (and they don't even last a decade!) and then you think it's all happiness and sunshine when you get to the 20s but then it gives you whiplash how much faster that decade goes, and the rest don't slow down either.

Probably because people spend their whole teen years in middle school and High school and people just want to grow up already. Then in your early 20's you suddenly have a lot of freedom but then you realize you actually have to do something with your adult life.

By your mid/late 20's you're supposed to have had it figured out. Of course nowadays most don't. Which is why, "30 is the new 20" became a thing. Now people treat 20-29 year olds as a second set of teenage years, and 30 is now the new 20.

Because teenage years are when you start changing and your hormones are messing with your brain constantly.

You start facing the first big problems of your life when you're a teenager. Ofc, compared to adult problems those are a joke for the most part, but it's the first time you find yourself facing such issues and that can be daunting when you're only 13.

7th and especially 8th grade are both horrible years. Just any teacher what their least favourite school years to teach are.

American TV makes HS look like hell, but 7th and 8th grade were the worst years for me personally. And I notice most other Europeans I've talked to online say similar things. The bullying in those years can be pretty bad.

Around 10th grade bullying and physical fights became a thing of the past. If you got in a fight in HS it'd be the talk of the school in the next day and the people involved in said fight would be embarrassed about having taken part of it. By then you're supposed to know better.

In HS, cliques become more of a thing and all but they don't go out of their way to harass those who aren't part of their clique. At most you might overhear them talking and laughing behind your back. Everything is done in a more passive aggressive manner.
