I don't know if this is a rude question to even ask on the internet? But seriously, I am 19.

hey bison, how come you have such a small candle problem. we had to scale it back to ONE candle per ten years and still get a similar problem, if we try the 1 candle per year it would take TWO cakes to hold the candles and both cakes would look like yours, and I am only 47  & 1/12th

Wait a minute.

Didn't you used to be Zellio? Yes of course you were, member number 2,751,775.

Not that it matters one way or another, I've known some people that changed their nicknames more often than their underwear, remember Drengin?

Anyway I just happened to notice your reply in the previous incarnation of this thread where you used the identical response on page 12 of http://forums.galciv2.com/117380.

Going through that thread brought back some memories of folks long past whose absence greatly diminishes these forums. Folks far too numerous to mention but missed nonetheless.

Anyway I'm 58 and ready to retire.

Like Bison and Thoumsin I am 42. 

Looking at the age of some others, I feel kinda old. But Mumblefratz (and especially the Dark Knight) help me feel like I am not so old.

Gah! I didn't get to that old thread 'til late December and my birthday hasn't happened yet this year, but it's close enough to four frakkin' years for a 45-year-old.

I'm with Mumble in having come to miss some forum folks, even before I shifted to spending most of my time over at Elemental. Those boards are coming up on their 2nd year of operation and there are already some very interesting voices that have left the scene.

My least favorite thing about aging: other people's mortality, both physical and virtual. (Mind you, the lack of adolescent physical rebound powers is a photo-finish second. Youth isn't wasted on the young, but you can't fully appreciate the bodily aspects until they start fading.)

Quoting CharlesCS,
... I am 12,681 days old or 304,342 hours old (give or take a few hours)

You remind me of an old, under-appreciated Joan Vinge novel, The Outcasts of Heaven Belt. It was mostly set in an asteroid-based culture where time was measured in seconds with metric prefixes. How old are you in kiloseconds?

By ready to retire I mean I've reached financial independence and could afford to retire if for some reason I absolutely had to. However given that at this point I'm saving close to $100K of *after tax* dollars per year which essentially converts to an extra $4,000 of yearly post-retirement income (assuming a not too unreasonable 4% return on my high grade corporate bonds), I find it difficult to outright quit just yet. I figure in another 2 years I'll have reached my goal of $2,000,000 of *after tax* savings which represents at least $80K per year of interest income, so even if you right wingnuts manage to privatize Social Security it will be no skin off my back. At that point I'll be 60 and ready to finish out my life on permanent vacation.

What I do find amusing is that a thirty something year old can be so assured of their financial future that they can spout the right wing drivel that you do. However to be able to do so you must already have a fully funded trust fund. How else can you be so assured that you won't end up eating cat food? But then there are no shortage of folks that are stupid enough to cut off their own nose just to spite their face.
