I'm old.

You know how old people have that old smell on them? Like, you know, they stink of impending death, how they smell like a corpse for years before they actually become one? At what age do you start to get that old smell, I wonder...

And here I was happy to see you post again.
I'm turning thirty this year, so you're not the only fat, old, bald guy with literature semi-ambitions stuck in some mire of "oh, well".

i'm at least just corrupted and old...yet not fat and bold
turning thirty isn't that bad; maybe it even gives you the drive to get out of this "oh, well" mood

i'm not helping WCM finding an answer, though---

Hm... 30 is also getting dangerously close for me. I'm turning 28 in a week... even though I still don't feel I really finished 'growing up' yet. :? :lol:
You charge each other for the time and breath it takes to say 'good morning',
But the truth is slowly dawning -- things are getting out of hand,
We all pursue our shattered dreams along the roads to our own ruin --
Watch our empires sink and wash away like castles made of sand.
And so cast off the lies that are your lives and find the truth within.
-- Martin Walkyier

Sometimes we hold it but it's slipping away

Happy corpse-day, Jackson. I'm only going to be 37 the end of this month, so I'll alwasy have that "Well, at least I'm not as old as Jackson" line to convince myself I'm young still.

The older I get, the more importance the lyrics of Helloween's "March Of Time" have.

26 in 13 days. My hair is falling at increased speed, my bladder just stopped working and where before there was smooth skin there now runs grand-canyon like formations. I hate it. I want the last 10 years back. :(

On the other hand, when I want to feel young, I just remind myself that Ronnie James Dio is 64 or 65 now, and was damn near my age when he recorded "Holy Diver". ;)

I'm old too! I'll be 32 this month. You either get older or die, no other way around it. I've had too many near death experiences to complain about getting old. Besides, there's nothing like metal to keep a person young and pissed off!

I'll excuse you for that remark because you're still so young and inexperienced. In most tribes it's the old that rule, because they know more. You young people will just do all the physical work and reproduce. I'm not interested in those things anymore. :P

Well, as long as you can still game, you're okay, right? I mean, you're married, so it's not as if you need to be a stud-man to attract chicks. I'm sure your wife will still be seen in public with you no matter how old and decrepit you get.

So, as long as you can still game, everything is right with the world. And take this into consideration... before my grandpa died, he had a girlfriend that games all the time. She's 68 now, and still games every day. And mostly on the GBA abd DS too! I don't even think I could play that long on the DS.
