i'm done using an age. unless maybe the government requires it. here's my reasoning. when i think of people at 30, 40, 50, 60, etc., i do make stereotypical assumptions automatically. for example, i'll assume how they probably look, act, what music they like, etc. i am not going to get out of shape, i'm not going to lose my taste of current music, i'm basically not going to be like everyone else. therefore, i don't want people making assumptions about me. i'd rather have people judge me by who i am and what i do--not by what my age # is and what most other people are like at certain ages. i'm generally not a liar, but when i talk to a girl and she's like 18, if she asks me how old i am, i usually just add 2 or 3 years to her age. no one has doubted me yet and i don't show anyone my license. i'm going to keep doing this til i can't get away with it anymore, then i'm just going to not disclose my age at all. take FPC, for example. he could be 50 claiming he's 25, or 25 claiming he's 50. from his posts on ET, i really have no idea. i think that is cool. plus, there is no such thing as ONE real time, anyway.
