Yeah, right. I'm going to become MORE boring. Look at this post. Do you see that happening, realistically?

get real: Silly Farkers, you will always be the maturity level of the age you started drinking started smoking pot, it is a fact, I read it on Fark and the Internets.

Made a humble correction. French people start drinking in the womb, then they grow up to be orgy-loving sexual libertarians -- that's hyper mature.

TheDirtyNacho: Ah but the thing is the different aspects of yourself change at different rates in different ways.

At 31, I can say that my physical peak was likely around 28. If I skip exercising for a time now I'll put on a few pounds and my legs and back will ache more from routine tasks. Back then and before, exercise quickly built muscle rather than be a diminishing-results maintenance regime.

Mental flexibility peak? Jury's still out on this one. I think the science says its in the 20s, which is probably right.

Wisdom peak? I think I have a few decades to go on that one.

I'm going to be 36 in a week. I'm at my physical, mental, and spiritual peak.

I expect to continue growing in those areas so that I can give you the same answer next year.

TheDirtyNacho: Thank you. At least you're not one of these delusional middle-aged fruitcakes going on and on about how much better they are than in their 20s, while their lactating mammaries and beer guts hang over their belts. Life is awfully short, and most of life seems to be "booting up" (childhood), followed by a decade or two of good operation (20s-30s), followed by long decades of decay and decrepitude, combined with massive denial and delusion.

And people wonder why I'm for life extension and anti-aging? Can you imagine the money society could save by not having to treat all the old people (40+) for all the things that start to fall apart?

Why, I imagine we could build TWO asteroid lasers AND a space elevator in a few decades.

But no, life extension is unnatural and not even possible. Too complicated, too hard. We don't choose to do the hard things anymore. We've got videogames that need programming.
