# Thread: What's the age of the BABB?

1. ## What's the age of the BABB?

There seems to be such a diverse group of people here, so I thought why not ask the question. 8-[ Won't it be interesting to see the results?

2. I am in my 30's. ops: Best to give your age range when replying, otherwise, the thread will die. And no fibbing! :^o

3. I'm 17. Hmm, not sure what to say. 8-[

I assume you mean the age of the members, not the board itself. :wink:

I'm 29, finally finshing up my math degree. Going into actuarial science (setting insurance rates), but I find astronomy to be a lot more fun. I used to work as a machinist, but eventually grew bored with it.

I've lurked for a while and have learned a lot from the people here. What are other member's backgrounds? Just curious.

5. What do if you're 20? You're too old for the first option and too young for the second.

Or what if you're 35? Do you pick the second or the third one?

And 50 has the same problem that 20 has!

:P :wink:

22, by the way.

Bummer, it won't let me edit it now. I suppose you can treat it like a leap year. :-k Perhaps, you should start a new thread with the correct age options. It would make things more accurate. 8-[ [edit due to stupidity]

7. I turned 26 in May.

I am now officially closer to 30, than 20.

Darn, I feel old ...

I'm actually following a somewhat similar path, at 27 I'm getting ready to enter a Chemical Engineering program, once I finish three more classes. Differential Equations, Physics I and Physics II. Glad to see someone else out there in my age range trying to get out of the rut of mundane jobs. I work in retail management...yuck!

11. 45, turning 46 in September.

Ironic that this one follows a post by milli360, isn't it? :wink:

Wonder why posts about gender and age come up so frequently around here. What's an old woman to think?

Unless you're posting at the exact moment you turn 35, it's not a problem.

I debated this. Last May, he was 4 years from the last day that he was 20, and 5 years from the first day that he will be thirty. That's why I went with December. You seem to be looking at it as 5 years since he turned 20. So, the distinction hinges on how "close to 20" is measured.

But, yeah, either way, it didn't happen last month.

16. They say life begins at 40. I´m a little baby now.

I'm in kindergarten, then.

Hey, it's nap time!

18. I'm 19. I would guess that the average age is a bit closer to 30 or so. We'll just have to see. 8)

What if you age since birth is in one category but your mind knows you belong in another one? :wink:

25. ## A Quiz

Last month, on May 11th at 5:15:40 pm Eastern Time, I turned One Billion Seconds Old. My age and birthdate are left as an exercise to the reader.

Do I get my nerd licence now?

26. 15. Yes, you heard that right. Now Brady Yoon isn't so unique on this board... :wink:
