The Best Things About Growing Old

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

The Best Things About Growing Old

Post by Ed Hammer » Sat Sep 12, 2015 9:30 pm

You don't know who the the current celebrities are.
You find out that younger girls can be fun( I never slept with a younger woman until I came to Cambodia) and like the knowledge you acquired .
Feeling smug that you had better music in your time.
You get cash back from the blood sucking government you paid for, for so long.
You cherish the time you had.

Talking about piss and shit to clean up, after you move house, I've got 4 little puppies here that could be looking for a home.

When you say you don't care what people think, you actually mean it.

One of the best things about growing old is the amount of money one saves by not having to have a haircut so often.














Problem is I spend all that ''saved '' money on Viagra and condoms.

I guess we live in a youth-worshipping world but off the top of my head:

You have no more/less debt…
You have more eclectic worldly tastes in everything…
You stop caring about dressing trendy…can sport a beard/hat without looking like a hipster…
You know who you are and intuitive women realize it…
You care less what everyone thinks…and can give an opinion without chest puffing…
You can see the forest faster without having to examine every tree…information triage…

I realize I love/appreciate movies with more “elderly” protagonists as well:
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy where Gary Oldman, George Smiley, uses his geriatric wisdom and experience to come out the hero.
Akira Kurasawa’s Seven Samurai and Sanjuro in which the older ronin dominate with wisdom and martial experience.
Clint Eastwood as William Munny in Unforgiven.
That final scene of the Last of the Mohicans where the father, Chingachgook, avenges his son’s death!
Etc.

And this makes me smile:

Stop deluding yourselves, there's nothing good about growing old, other than that it beats the fuck out of the alternative.
