Average Age?
 
Just trying to find out what the average age of Adult League & Tournament Talk posters are.

Simply click the category you fall under.

I am over 85 but not yet 9000. Where is my poll option? Why the blatant discrimination against us oldsters but not yet deaders?

I'd be less concerned about discrimination and more concerned about your life alert button working. :)

If you're really over 85, click over 9000. If you don't want to click over 9000, don't click anything. If you want to click 75-85, I won't tell anybody.

You need to learn how to write poll questions to make the answers mutually exclusive. Anyone 25, 35, 45, 55, 65, or 75 has two possible correct answers. Plus you aren't going to be able to determine an average age of posters from the results of that poll. All you'll get is a mode age range.

Since I had two choices, I voted based on whether I was more than 6 months into the year.

Cindysphinx 11-12-2012 08:04 AM

I selected my actual age and also the age I wish I were.

My life alert button stopped working decades ago, or so it seems. Actually I think it was a tennis accident - I was wearing it on court and it got hit point-blank by an overhead. I think that's also when my pacemaker stopped working. But I'm not sure - my memory isn't what it used to be.

Now what was I saying?

*PS YOUR GRANDMA SOUNDS HOT!!!

"wish I were/was"....\
We always wonder, what if?
Now in my case, I got some smarts, some experience, some maturity...what would things be like if I was 25 again?
I'd be ugly--er. Much more wrinkled, weak and slow, bad vision, long recovery time ..:).. and still staring at the 20 year olds which I could never get.....

Ooops I selected the wrong option... selected 35 to 45 instead of 25 to 35... oh well.

I am surprised at the lack of under 18 users on TT, considering I am part of that age group.

Just re-read the original post. Oops.

adamX012 11-12-2012 05:18 PM

I am under 99 :)

ps: happy thanksgiving!

Agreed on that. From the poll it looks like we should have some mature posters but that does not correlate to what I've read. I would have expected a greater population of younger posters. Perhaps the don't do polls..

Nah, this place is a 30-50 year old conversation that an occasional twenty something joins in (and usually gets out pretty quick). Kids aren't hangin around this place.

That would be a 40 year difference in my case

Take your actual age, tabulate the number of groans you emit while getting out of the back seat of a car, and multiply by 2.

If you are 21 years old that is the average of when you were 0 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 + 13 + 14 + 15 + 16 + 17 + 18 + 19 + 20 + 21 divided by 22 for an average age of 10 and 1/2.

You're welcome. :)

One of the variables is not getting used ........

In general, for a chronological age of N years, the above always simplifies to N/2.
