64 here. Not in particularly good shape, but hope to rectify that once I retire.

75 but in reasonable shape apart from a couple of issues. Feel like I'll live forever but somehow I've lost contact with my world... cannot fathom this one anymore.

Big 50 last April. Best thing that come with getting older, for me, patience, a ton more patience. More appreciative of things, people, their views and the world in general, ability to write bad people off and walk away without them living in my head rent free.

So not a single member yet who is under the age of 30. I can't say that surprises me though.

Just look when most of joined....all in the early years of the 2000 decade. I was actually a member earlier than that but was rebooted. When we were all young the internet and computers were just getting going. Jeez I remember the first Burroughs 1100 desk PCs and my firm had an IBM 360 in Africa, one of the first. The point is it was all a new thing back then, now it's just another medium. Also the gamers themselves are not like we were. We were generally all war-gamers from the old SPI and Avalon Hill hex games or Flight simmerrs.

Now it's all shootemups. Not that there's anything wrong with shootemups. biggrin

We're in a new world now, and it's not a good one in many ways. Just saying....

[quote=Ajay] for me, patience, a ton more patience.

From what I have witnessed viewing here on your modelmaking skill, precision and expertise, I wager patience is not much of an issue you have to contend with! smile
I envy you...I'm more of the "oh bollocks, that'll do.....no-one will see that bit anyway" school of craftsmanship.

Ageing summed up by Douglas Adams:

1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

Might need to change the numbers a bit but I think he was spot on.

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt. Bertrand Russell, 1872 - 1970.
Indeed the safest road to Hell is the gradual one - the gentle slope, soft underfoot, without sudden turnings, without milestones, without signposts. C.S. Lewis, 1898 - 1963.
History is made up of people recovering from the last disaster. James S.A. Corey.
