Of course, we are talking about physical age, and not emotional outlook, aren't we?

Looks like the "young uns" have finally figured out there is a poll, and they are (were) losing.

I think we are talking about IQ.

We still have a chance. I think the oldsters will come around and vote tomorrow morning. At this time of night most have long ago padded up the stairs to their trundle beds and blown out their candles.

If that's the case, this whole poll does not bode well for anyone in 50+...

52, and about...20 minutes, according to the clock. B-Day's over, wah.

Now, on FB, there was a test to gauge emotional age... I'm about 16. Guess it's all the years of raising kids with lots of quality time... I'm taking MY emotional age, shaving it off and giving it to them.

They're in trouble.

Trying to write and publish a neutral, non-controversial poll in this group is a REAL challenge!!

Thanks for all the responses so far.

Hey, you 70+'rs, 75+'rs, 80+'rs and 85+'rs - wake up and smell the roses.

Can I vote again in another category? You left out "39." That's the Jack Benny category. I realize 39 is "under 50," but so is 49.

Vote early and vote often. Is there a prize for the demographic that wins? Maybe a coupon for an early bird special at the BF.Net Lounge?

Somehow, I fail to understand the problem, since no one knows who HiYoSilver is except HiYoSilver, and, by definition we are all over 50 (except a few).

My mother used to say "Every woman over 25 is still 25."
