Your'e getting on Reverend Wink .

I see 35 as the optimum age, with the 'sensibly' accrued knowledge of a person twice that age.

You don't get to take your knowledge with you.

If you could, it would be a no brainer because we all can second guess our actions in life lateron.

You would just start over at that point, and things may go better or they may go worse. Getting a young body and an old mind is what everyone wants. Question is, what matters more in the end, body or mind.

People always lament getting older, but when you get down to it, no one really wants to be much younger again. And being younger means exactly that you don't know what you know now. It is an integral part of youth to think you know things but you don't.

Personally, I like the 50s. (and I am still enjoying them but not for long, lol). Old enough to know what you really want and young enough to get it and enjoy it.

Then again, I may look at this 10 years from now and think that I was stupid at 50 and want to be older than that....

When still quite young, I vowed to drink myself into oblivion by the time I reached 30.
I think I managed it but I don't remember much about it so I can't be sure.

But just about everything involving getting older is better .. except for the physical decay. Like the rev, i don't begrudge having to give up this life when the time comes. I'm quite certain that is the end of it. No afterlife of any kind. Don't buy anything from anyone who tells you otherwise.

I do wish I could do more in a day than I can now and that my right thumb and wrist weren't weak and achy. But what are you gonna do? It is all part of the deal, and a damned good deal it is too.

No do-overs for me. I'm interested in covering new ground.

Nice ... errr, I mean meh ... whatever. Thumbsup Just finishing up with my 5th decade. Our technology is close to being able to attenuate the physical decay. I am stronger now at almost 50 yo than when I was as a wrestler and football player in High School. Hell, I am stronger now than I've ever been. I'm not gonna accept the physical decay as inevitable.

bwahahahaha ... And if it first you don't succeed ...

Breathing - it's more art than science.

RE: For those 40 + years old....
I wouldn't want to go back and relive any part of my life. It wasn't fun, interesting or anything.
It was boring, mundane and the people around me -including my parents- did nothing that made me feel like I had anything whatsoever to look forward to.

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return.
To obtain, something of equal value must be lost.
That is Alchemy's first law of Equivalent Exchange.

There is no particular age I'd want to go back to, and since you won't let me take my current knowledge base I probably wouldn't do any better in the market.
