Aha good question but I think the age does not make a lot of sense as we could also ask "is 40 really the new 20 or Am i Being deceived ?". Isn't it =P ?

@squirrelwhisp: ...You know when you are old when you talk to a young person and neither of you knows what the other is talking about...

That will never happen to me -- I will always be hip and trendy LOL

Show a young EE a wire wrap project and ask them what software was used to assemble this board. You know when you are old when you talk to a young person and neither of you knows what the other is talking about. To heck with the digital universe. I'm going to be buried with my Simpson meter. Remember March 16 is Ohm's birthday and he's more important than Moore.

@mosspp: "I wish that I knew what I know now When I was younger."

Ain't that the truth. I always liked the one that goes "If youth knew; if age could."

The thing is that you know that if you tell younger people anything it will go in one ear and out the other ... just like it did when we were young and our elders were trying to pass on the secrets of life, the universe, and everything to us.

On the bright side, we also know that one day they will get to be our age and they'll say something like "My goodness, Max wasn't as stupid as he looked (but there again, who could be?)" LOL

@Max:  prophecies and hindsight . . .

One of my favorites from "Ooh La La" (Faces):

"I wish that I knew what I know now
When I was younger."

@GoFor: ...my younger sister got me a silly "Old Fa&t" hat with insulting buttons and pins on it...

She obviously loves you (maybe she thought this was a step up from what you usually wear LOL)

No, but my younger sister got me a silly "Old Fa&t" hat with insulting buttons and pins on it.  With a walking cane to complete the "look."
