I put down 80..but i think 'old' is more of a state of mind than physical state..and people can get old at all different ages..Old is thinking old..not being youthful anymore..losing your marbles..liking the taste of prune juice as well.

I think its a state of mind. I have taken care of people who were in there 90's who were so active they could put any of us to shame.

Sometimes I feel old and I'm only 26. I think "old" is a state of mind. I hate the thought of being so old I can't remember anything and can hardly move without fear of breaking a hip.

Anyone 15 years older then me.... so now someone 41 is old... in 5 years 46 will be old etc etc.

When I'm the oldest person I know I'll then be old... till then I'll always be young...

It's all perspective, life experience........I've known individuals in their 70s not as mature as some I've met in their 20s..........It's attitude.........

Seb, get your foot out of your mouth!!!!!;-))

Anybody over 30 is old.
Thank you to the 2 people who voted that I'm an old fart, being over 30. Just wait, your time shall come.

The rebels of the 1960s who had the slogan of "don't trust anyone over 30" are now around 60, get a camera shoved up their butt to check for tumors, need to make sure they get enough fiber in their diet to stay regular, and refill their Viagra prescriptions. They're still in Sex, Drugs, and Rock n' Roll, but Sex & Drugs now = Viagra & Lipitor, and they need a hearing aid to hear the rock.
