I'm old

I just pulled a grey hair from the side of my head and I'm only 26. Should I be scared?

You don't have to worry until the pubes turn gray. And trust me, when it happens to your wife, you will never hear the end of it as a sign of the End Times.

Can we quit with the "I'm old" threads from the babies on the forum. I've got 10 years on you and I'm not old, so you can just shush.
