    Crap. All of them apply to me except watching the weather channel which I don't get since I only have airwaves. But I still post on BF, so I couldn't be old yet.

    many on the list, hit close to home

    I think the thing that makes me feel, "all grown up" the most,is my concern of gas prices.

    I never buy gasoline(I'm car-free), but the jump in prices has caused me to lose a few moments of sleep lately.

    That makes sense. I'm sure you do eat, after all.
    "Real wars of words are harder to win. They require thought, insight, precision, articulation, knowledge, and experience. They require the humility to admit when you are wrong. They recognize that the dialectic is not about making us look at you, but about us all looking together for the truth."

    nope, AEO still hasn't grown up...
    AEO will have to watch out for those...
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    1) Top 10/25 lists don't interest you.

    Well, I'm 20 and already the following apply to me:

    2 (I have a queen sizer, and an apt!)
    3 (I don't drink that often)
    4 (I work)
    5
    7 (sort of)
    8 (been schooling summers ever since I started college)
    20 ($4 wine was never good s***)
    23 (see 4)

    However, consider that in some countries, being grown up is that age where you can impregnate a woman successfully. Then again, I think this list doesn't apply in those situations.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces

    Agreed. (I did read it, though, but it wasn't at all appealing.)

    i for sure can't drink the way i used to....that happened around 30 actually.
    I watch the weather channel becuase i'm a cyclist...so i'm sure we all do for the same reason.

    As for the noisy neighbors...right now these 20-something guys live upstairs from me, and friday night they had a party. WHich wasfine...they told me about it in advance. But by 3 am i was like get lost already! then the next night, i was in bed around 12 30, becuase i wanted to go for a ride...and they were being noisy in the dining room which is right over my bedroom and the ceilings are so low! so i banged on the ceiling with a swiffer...i felt like mrs Grumpy Grundy but i just wanted to get some sleep!

    I spoke to one of them today and he apologized and so did it...they're nice guys for the most part, but one of them plays video games on surroundsound for like ten hours...he's really over weight and would probably benefit from exercise. He works at an electronics retailer and got a good deal, but i think of how that money would have bought him a sweet bike or at least a gym membership. In the next basement apartment is this other 20something guy who i call Silent Bob.
    You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar. That's great...if you want to attract vermin.

    I guess I'm only half grown up:

    5.) Probably not. Usually elevator music is only the most annoyingly PC, unoffensive, and musically unimaginative music they can find. In tab form: Riff 1, Riff 1, Riff 1, Riff 2, Riff 1,...
    6.) It seems like all my friends are married and having kids.
    9.) Sweater? Aside from that, jeans and anything but a T-shirt is still "dressed up" to me.
    10.) Police? Bah! Two words: Potato ***
    11.) My relatives don't feel comfortable telling sex jokes around me (we're not much of a dirty humor family), but other people's do.
    13.) I WISH! Everybody says your insurance goes down when you turn 25. Mine went up 20%.
    15.) Haha suckers. Not for me.
    16.) Naps are a waste of daylight, although perhaps that's why I don't get #15.
    18.) I will try this and report back
    20.) Wine-making is getting to be enough of a science and competitive enough that wineries can and sometimes do produce good wine for that $4. The problem is sorting out the good wines from the light, sweet ones for people who don't know what wine should taste like.
    24.) I've always done this. There was no way I could afford to get drunk at $4/pint as a college student. I hate bars.
