What do you consider the best time of your life? I can honestly say that right now is by far the best time I have had so far. I wouldn't want to relive my childhood or teens at all.

So how do you view your time so far?
Pine for the past or live in the moment?

I find that when I look to my teens and young adult life, the overwhelming feeling is a wish to rewind and live them the way i am now. I have never felt so comfortable in myself as I do now, and never been so content and happy.
The truth is though, that without my capricious youth I would not be the person I am today, so I have no regrets.

I consider myself an adult and not middle aged. Thats because I plan on living to 120.

So NOW are the best days of my life. My teens.....HORRIBLE!!! I could write a book about those days.

It's taken a bit of living to discover who I am. Now I'm a little more certain about that than at any other time.

These ARE the "good ole days".

I dont qualify as a 'fossil', yet, as I've yet to live through three of the catagories I'll get back to anwering you in 30 years when I retire. I'm sure the forum will still be up and running then

Like yourself Matt ... these are the best times of our lives. I still feel like a 17 year old in a 38 year old body. I feel invicible at times but also timid and unassure. I didn't have a great childhood and I wouldn't want to revisit it even for the few good memories. I'm mature and have some great life experiences. I've met some good people and that is due to how I am as a person now. All of those earlier things in my life shaped me into who I am today; good or bad. I just made myself a better person and the person I am today is who I want to be. I am an Adult; nothing more and nothing less. And like John, I want to live for a long time.

Chris Calie. And I don't think the price should be any of your concern (unless you plan on dontating... ), nor should it be posted publicly. Now stop hijacking the thread! If you have any more questions, take them to PM.

adulthood is by far more fun. still, I get into conversations sometimes with the kids about 70's, 80' and their questions fire up some good memories - every so often I jot one down on the forums.

One question. Have youth really changed much over the decades at the core?
Or are kids still kids?

For me, after being around for 57 years, it was the teen years.

I was then too old to be bossed about and too young to be held responsible for a lot of 'things' and of course it was a time of 'firsts'

First time falling in love; first kiss; first time driving a car; first time staying over at friend's place; first time out of the country; first time handling a hunting firearm; and first look at a dynamic tension excersize being done. I am sure there were other firsts, but these came readily to my over-half-century-old brain cells.

I find that as one grows old or get on in years, one seems to develop a certain kind of cynicism i.e 'believing the worst of human nature and motives; having a sneering disbelief in e.g. selflessness of others'

I think kids are still kids...but in a pushbutton, 'on-demand', cellular, hyperlinked, instantaneous world. The challenge for the upcoming generation is that they don't lose themselves in automation from following the spiral path of instant gratification.

negotiation is hard work...conflict is instantaneous.

questioning is harder than accepting.


I just hope generations to come never stop questioning prior generations. don't let us fossils rule you.

Dont bet on it. The only way its less innocent is that you guys have the internet for porn. we oldies had to get it from the side of railway tracks

i think the main difference is that there was more room for public intervention, and harsher outcomes for bad behaviour than now. many a time I was frog-marched home by a friends parent/neighbour/police officer because of getting too rowdy or OTT, and then there were real ramifications from my parents.
Nowadays, if a kid gets taken home by the arm or is given a slap for being rude it ends in a court case.

We had to be clever to get away with what we were up to- you guys today just flaunt it because you can't be stopped- makes you obvious and lazy.

There is no option for 'It all sucked' or 'It was all equally good'.
