30 is not old, however it certainly isn't any "younger" than it was a few decades back. If anything 30-year-olds look worse on average than 30-year-olds from, say, 25 years ago. Because of early puberty, poor diet, stress, and the like.

Yes, in 1987 we had very poor nutrition, no sunblock, no exercise, and wellness-care was not even invented. Plus we had so much more stress, that all the 30 year olds looked ancient compared with today's 30 year olds!

This guy is whining about feeling bound because of how other people view him, and then turns around and criticizes others because they don't make the same life choices he does. He's doing the same thing he's been endlessly complaining about in two different threads.

And I still want to know, so the fudge WHAT if someone thinks 30 is old or if everyone in the entire world thinks 30 is old? How does this change anything for you whatsoever?
I don't want to be treated like I am old before my time.

How do you think people treat you differently?

When someone talks about 30 like it is an old man, I take it personal.

Look at this post:

Wasn't one of the counter-culture mottos 'don't trust anyone over 30?"




He is bringing a quote up that was said 50 years ago, something that was said long before I was even born. The guys who said this are either in their 60s and 70 now, or dead. This shouldn't apply today. 30 is young and it shouldn't be treated any differently than teens or twenty somethings, and that is the campaign I am on.

I think you're taking that out of context. When it was said there was a vast cultural difference between people under and over 30 that had nothing to do with physiology, although quite a bit to do with fashion. I was alive then and it was pretty true. Watch Mad Men and you'll get an idea as to the difference. People over 30 were squaresville man.

That is what I was saying, that saying doesn't apply today. The 1960s were before my time. I was born in 1981. The kids of the sixties are in their 60s and 70s now. This is 2012, not 1965. It is time to move on.

LOL, I was a kid of the sixties and I'm only 50.

We learned math without calculators too.
