      I'll tell ya what though - most of the older people on the internet are on specialized hobbyist or professional forums - you won't find any forums called "Old People Forums"! Lol!!

      On the stopmotion forum where I hung out before discovering DV it's a lot of people in their 40's 50's and 60's even who were big names (or big fans) in the stopmotion industry in its heyday and now they get to hang out and shoot the bull about it and lament about the lost glory days before CGI and all. I guess there's also a bunch on Adult Friend Finder...
      Well, considering the fact that you know how to use DV, I'm sure your internet skills are quite adequate. Seriously though, I get calls from my mom at school asking me how to use the computer and she is in her 40s.

      I'm 49 going on about 30.

      Actually 49. Feel and act about 30 or so most of the time, except those bad days where I feel 90 or those really mischievous days when I act about 15. (ok, that's most days I guess!)

      I seem to have noticed this and I will tell you quite frankly. I like you better when you act 49 than when you act 15. Hopefully when you hit 60, you will pick things up a notch. There are beautiful things about youth, but as we grow older we have the abilities to grow wiser. Remember this. A 15 year old has never (in this life) been 60. A 60 year has been both and more.

      I work with Engineers and they are much older, but man, these guys are incredo skilled. Not just internet, but software. Not just using it. Building it and changing it. Not just software savvy, but hardware savvy too. OK, maybe your mom is not a rocket scientist, but some other peoples are.

      Failing to act like an uptight humorless old person doesn't imply a lack of wisdom. It seems the wisest older people have the wisdom to realize that life doesn't need to be taken so seriously and might act in ways that you perceive as immature.

      No one's arguing against the fact that there are some older people who are good with technology and others who aren't. The point is that on average younger people who were born learning how to deal with new technology are better with it than older people who weren't. If you don't see that I don't know where your sense of reason it.

Since this is a forum, I'd like to open this up to anyone of any age that wants to post. However, I do need to use the data from someone who is older than 58, so I'm hoping there are some seniors that will reply.

      Rules:

      1. State your current age.

      2. Tell us about one or two of the most memorable events in your life (good, bad, or otherwise). Be sure to include at what age you had these experiences. Be detailed about how you felt during these events/experiences. Have you resolved these experiences? If so, how?


      Note: I don't want anyone's PTSD to be triggered by responding to this post, so please only share if you are comfortable with writing your experience out for us to see.

      Thanks a bunch! This will help me out immensely! I need some replies before tomorrow afternoon.
      Age: 96

      Experience 1 (age 24): I met my wife back when the women and the negroes still knew their place in society. I had just graduated from law school and was invited to a party. Back then a radio was a big thing and everyone was listening to jazz music. Women were all wearing those torpedo bras and girdles giving them welcoming figures. This girl named Mary Lane had a pink polka dot dress, I asked her to dance and she tried to resist but I beat her face a little and next thing you know we were a couple.

      Experience 2 (age 27): World war 2, I was on a team assigned to parachute down behind enemy lines three days before D-Day. We needed to strike fear into the heart of our prey, get them shivering before our boys even touched the shore. Our Lieutenant was part Apache and taught indian guerilla tactics including scalping the enemy. Anyways one day the air was think with battle, I was using the entrails of a dead family as cover from a machine gun, trying to get a shot with a bolt action rifle. DAMN YOU NAZI BASTARDS! I shouted as I watched my men die around me. I started choking on the blood but kept shooting. DIE FUCKING DIE BITCH DIE! It was getting too much! I couldn't BITCH NAZI I'M GONNA SPLIT YOU'RE HEAD OPEN GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

      Well, maybe it wasn't the smartest thing in the word to call it "old people survey", but you got to give him points for this part

      April Ryan is my friend,
      Every sorrow she can mend.
      When i visit her dark realm,
      Does it simply overwhelm.

      R.I.P Omnis, what the fuck were you thinking pikastew!????? You should have known Omnis, bless his heart, didn't ever cope well with his committed atrocities.
      I will hunt you down and take revenge!
