I turned 30 today. And I'm going bald. I thought I'd be young forever, damn it.

Meh. Screw going bald. Screw creaky knees and a bad back. You're only old when you've given on life.

My grandpa told me not to get old. I'm going to try to follow that advice. It could be tough.

I agree with explody. You're only old when you decide to be.

I turn 30 in a couple months, but I'm cheating and counting in hexadecimal.

You're a kid still. If you can pull off the shaved head thing, do it. I couldn't - but then again, I'll have a full head of hair when I get to 127.

I'm 37 and still get carded when buying alcohol. Can't figure out why cuz i feel older than hell most days. So you ain't old, i reckon the bald part is workin against ya, but someday we are all going to be blabbering together at the rest home, so what difference does it make?

Well, with a sentiment like that, you are indeed old. Sorry to hear that!

You've yet to hit your prime, man. With each passing year you'll gain more confidence in yourself, understand people better, develop new skills, and enjoy life more. As the song says, the best is yet to come.

Oh crap, who am I kidding. You will be losing strength, speed, hair (as you already mentioned), stamina, sexual drive, mental capacity...you don't want to hear the rest.

BTW, happy birthday.

What if you're not kissin' anyone? Does it mean you're dead, or alive? <serious Vega look>
