Re: New test for are you getting old

Scored just over 20 on that, would have been more but a few things don't apply to me.

They certainly don't like the Archers do they, and I haven't listed to R1 since I was in Primary School  Grin

14 -  but, as with gleneagles, some didn't really apply.
Actually, a couple have applied for the last 10 years or so - but, apparently, I'm still young at heart (and, mostly, still in body) Cool

Re: New test for are you getting old

I really don't want to piss on the fun, but that article and the items below really annoyed me. Utter bloody rubbish.
1. Feeling stiff
It's got nothing to do with my age.
5. Losing hair
From 18. So, that's old then, eh?
6. You don’t know any songs in the top ten
I don't know what the songs in the top ten are to know if I don't know any songs in the top ten. lol I might, however.
8. Hating noisy pubs
I've always hated noisy pubs. In fact, I've always hated pubs. Nothing to do with my age.
9. Talking a lot about joints / ailments
I have done that all my life, being ill in one way or another all my life. Nothing to do with age.
13. Falling asleep in front of the TV
I've always done that. Nothing to do with age.
19. Wearing your glasses around your neck
I don't wear glasses.
22. Complaining about the rubbish on television these days
I don't watch television.
24. You move from Radio one to Radio Two
I don't listen to radio.
25. You start driving very slowly
I don't drive.
26. Preferring a night in with a board game than a night on the town
I've always preferred that. Nothing to do with age.
27. Taking a keen interest in The Antiques Road Show
I told you, I don't watch television. But when I did watch it, I did used to watch that programme. I was in my 20s.
30. Listening to the Archers
I told you, I don't listen to radio.
31. Falling asleep after one glass of wine
I don't drink alcohol.
34. When you can’t lose six pounds in two days any more
I wish I could GAIN six pounds.
35. Gasping for a cup of tea
Because of course young people don't. Roll eyes
36. Taking a flask of tea or coffee on a day out
Because of course young people don't. Roll eyes
38. Taking a keen interest in the garden
I don't have a garden. But when I did, I took a keen interest - in my late teens.
40. Spending money on the home / furniture rather than a night on the town
Nothing to do with age.
44. Really enjoying puzzles and crosswords
I used to love puzzles and crosswords, in my late teens, through my twenties and thirties.
45. Always driving in the slow lane, or below 70 in the middle lane
I don't drive. I already said that.
47. Your ears are getting bigger
Everybody's ears are getting bigger, from birth, non-stop, to death. Just like our noses.
49. Drinking sherry
I don't drink alcohol.
50. Feeling you have the right to tell people exactly what you are thinking even if it isn’t polite.
I've always thought that. Maybe that's why I've so often upset people. ...

I'm feeling old, just reading the list!   By the time you've finished reading it, your older than when you started Smiley

Re: New test for are you getting old

23.
I was showing signs of age 40+ years ago. I always have dressed for comfort not style. Detested loud pubs. I lost track of the Top 10 when I left my teens - if not sooner.
As is so often the case with this "research" it seems to be a case of a company succeeding in getting its name mentioned in the papers free of charge.
Utter bunkum!

Ah but was that sweet sherry or dry sherry? Perhaps you would not hate the alternative.

Surely the opposite should be true....when you're old you don't look?!
