Just had my birthday on the 25th of May and finally turned 21! :mrgreen:


Although I believe in sober living so it wasn't as exciting as most people would've seen it as. Although now I can go see my favorite bands that come through and only play at bars AND I've also seen it as a new door open in the social world. I can go to bars, be around a new scene with (what would feel like) brand new people to look at and a new challenge to pick up older women. ;-) plus I won't get turned down for any gigs because I'm not old enough to be in a bar. Woo!

21 factorial. You must be the oldest go player ever.

That's because of the sober living thing, if you don't drink there is no way to kill the brain cells with all the bad habits.

I will turn 43 this year. People who know me on Sensei's Library might know that already.
It seems to be a custom to add how old one feels. Well, that depends:

Headhunters have stopped calling me. That makes me feel close to retirement.
However, when I ride the bicycle from and to work, none shall pass. And only a few pass, all on a race bike. I'm a teenager on a bike.
When I'm in the table tennis club, surrounded by teenagers, I feel my age. But when I'm still reading math textbooks for leisure, I feel in my mid twenties.
And my mom can still make me feel like a baby.

We should keep in mind that the correct answer to the OP question is, "As young as I'll ever be!"

2014-06-21 — since yesterday, I’m as old now as the last century was when I was born (is that an easy one? I’m mathematically challenged, sort of) … anyway, happens only once in a lifetime, if at all, so I guess I can call me a lucky guy :-)

I appreciate being here with y’all.

Cordially, Tom

ROTFL — that would be nice :-D but apparently you missed that I wrote “last century”, and thus you discarded half a century of a wild, wild life ;-)

Vriendelijke groeten,

Tom
