    I'm "I need to be careful when getting up from the floor to avoid tearing any ligaments" age.

    I started online messageboarding in 1995 as a way to keep up with Cal football while living/working in DC

    Actually ran an ancient BBS for Soviet specialists in its later years (1994-5), one of the first when it was originally set up; my predecessors had contracted with ASU to do the technical work and then I inherited it after the USSR broke up and nobody used it much anymore

    My first message board was an Ohio State board in 1996.

    Before that, I was on an email list serve run by some guys at Northwestern. They tried to assemble a critical mass of students from each Big Ten school. My room mate went to high school with one of them and turned the OSU spot over to me.

    We literally had to read every email in the chain to figure out what was happening.

    Amazing that a younger group wouldn’t join in this fun discussion. The under 25s I hire at work don’t give a shit about sports. It’s weird to me but I grew up with cable/satellite and these kids are mostly Netflix/Hulu streaming.

    We use GroupMe for our district and the amount of legit olds who would take selfies trying to upload it as a profile pic but just post it in a thread always made me laugh. Combine that with the knuckleheads who always tell GroupMe to stop. Pretty entertaining for me.

    Turning 35 at the end of the month. Currently dealing with my first bout of back pain which I hurt....sleeping? I think? And then tweaked itagain a few days later leaning over to flip the top of an ottoman.

    My body is betraying me, hopefully I'm dead soon :awesomeface:

    This is me. I am in the best shape of my life at 50. Work out almost every day. Walk/run 4-5 miles a day. Stay active. I'm been stressing about my weight but I am leaner than I've been since my early 20s. When people guess my age they generally say mid-30s, but I have some gray in my beard that gives it away.

    Luckily my dad was a pretty cut dude and I got his genetics.

    Not sure if related to age, but I’m pretty sure I injured myself with a Q-tip last night. Guess I got in there too far. Feeling a sharp when I yawn or blow my nose.

    I think that's just related to sticking a q-tip in your ear, which you shouldn't do.
