First time I met herr_oberst was to ride the 206 mile Seattle to Portland. Now that I know he just turned 60 I can do the math and for this particular ride he would have been 54, I was 33... he was (and I am sure still is) quite capable of embarrassing me on the bike. He was very nice about it though

I don't have the wisdom of years quite yet, but from where I stand this really seems to be it. And on the other side of the coin, I swear I know some people who just decided that they have hit some magic number, are now old and would act likewise... they decided to stop keeping on. I'm not sure if those folks are any happier or sadder than the rest, I just know that I am not wired like they are.
