      Old People Survey.

      Hello all,

      I have an assignment in my psychology class that requires me to interview a senior who is 58 or better and have them tell me about the most memorable events in his or her life about which he or she can remember details. 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.

      I don't think there is anyone here who is 58 or older. =\

      A problem here is that probably no one over your age threshhold is very likely to care if you think you feel you need answers by tomorrow afternoon.

      Not only that, but it might have been a good idea to call this Seeking Wisdom From Mature Individuals rather than Old People survey...

      Use all the euphemisms you want, you old geezer, it doesn't change the fact that you're practically an antique. And not the expensive kind, either.

      There was that Phil2384732 guy but I haven't seen him in a while. He was a bit cracked anyway.

      Cracked is a light way to put it.

      Why didn't you just post this on reddit or something????
      Kind of odd to choose a lucid dreaming forum of all places.

      Or just ask your parents or grandparents.

      Haha. The replies have been quite amusing, but not necessarily helpful. I found a forum that was somewhat vital and actually had people posting, and posted in a off topic section. I should have figured there aren't a whole lot of older people exploring how to lucid dream. Well, thank you all for you replies. I think I'll try reddit, as was recommended.

      Looking for old people on Reddit? You're joking right?

      I never heard of reddit. Just googled it. That seemed useless. Why was that brought up? I thought veneration (or lack thereof) of age was the topic?

      You could easily find some better place. I just googled "old people forum" and tons of results came up.

      Yeah, I did the same earlier because I wanted to see if there are actually old people message boards. I should have used common sense, old people don't know how to use the internets.

      Only a small portion of them. Right now the average person above the age of 50 or so knows a lot less about using the internet than younger people.

      I did not know this. Is the reason he was banned public info?

      What? It means they were able to simplify it enough for most people to use it. Do you really think you are more able to know how to use software programs than the people who created them?

      nope, but how many people created the internet, not every old person ever. Im just saying, in general, younger people know how to use it more than old people.

      Al Gore!!!

      Yep. The kids who grew up with it have it in their blood in the way my generation can't. Just like the generation before them grew up knowing how to use remote controls and video games and DVD players and stuff like that better than their parents.

      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...
