    One thing that stands out about pinside, seems like there is a lot of new blood coming into the hobby. I think that is awesome. I does make me feel old when I see a handle with 83 on the end. I was a Junior in HS in 1983!

    Also, having read the pinball popularity thread, it got me thinking that this younger generation will find pinball wether pre-disposed to it at a young age or not...probably and ironically from video games.

    So, how old are you?

    I'm 45

    I graduated HS that year. ...sux getting old.

    #3 7 years ago

    46 next week. Man that's close to 50!

    #4 7 years ago

    51 candles for me last August.

    #5 7 years ago

    Possibly one of the youngest @ 25 here.

    #6 7 years ago

    Wow. Just last month I jumped to a new category....closer to 50 than 40. sigh

    #7 7 years ago

    Not to piss on your topic poll but you should give the peeps on the 5's and 10's 1 category if you really want to be accurate...

    #8 7 years ago

    39
    It always blows me away when I see people under 30 with 10k plus worth of pins in their collections. When I was under 30 I'd be hard pressed to scrounge up 2k to dump into toys.

    #10 7 years ago

    Yeah, I'm exactly thirty so I don't know which side to cot myself onto. Do I feel older or younger?

    #11 7 years ago

    Man, another one eh?
    If we are going to do this, we should just continue with the old one... (Everyone can also update their age if they want to! )

    Does anybody even bother to search anymore???

    #12 7 years ago

    40, voted in the 40-45 not 35-40. Was not sure which one.

    #13 7 years ago

    "Does anybody even bother to search anymore???"

    I don't because the search doesn't work so hot on here.

    "I does make me feel old when I see a handle with 83 on the end. I was a Junior in HS in 1983!"

    Date a girl born in '83 and it'll make you feel younger! I'll be 37 in a few weeks, ugh!

    #14 7 years ago

    I just realized I'm 28 and turn 29 this year....@#$@#$# I keep thinking I'm 25.

    #15 7 years ago

    42 and not a Pin closer to my anticipated collection yet!!!!!! I better get crack-a-lackin'.

    OMG I am hanging out with someone that just started drinking!!! The things I can teach you my young Padawan.

    "42 and not a Pin closer to my anticipated collection yet!!!!!! I better get crack-a-lackin'."

    Not a pin closer? What about AFM? #3, #20 and #23 is not too shabby of a collection.

    I know, I always mess up Poll categories.

    I could have chosen 40-45 or 45-50, but I picked 45-50 for moral support for us old guys.

    I did search for age and poll and a few others...never ran across that thread.

    If you are complaining, you MUST be old...and chrochety!

    Well, do you feel younger...punk....well, do ya? Sorry couldn't resist the DH ref

    Well I don't crochet... But I am Crotchety from time to time, so the answerer is...

    I wasn't trying to single you out Espo, I was just noticing that the frequency of the "similar/double thread", has been on the rise. No offense implied.

    I don't because the search doesn't work so hot on here.

    I agree it is a bit tough to find stuff on here, but I seem to manage it somehow...
    Robin, is there a way to include filters to make things easier to search???
    You know, since you have all this "Mammary" now?

    #23 7 years ago
    Quoted from The_Gorilla:

    .closer to 50 than 40. sigh

    50 don't make you old 52 here

    #24 7 years ago

    46, and still sexy.

    #25 7 years ago

    I'm 32. I doubt I'm the youngest around here.

    #26 7 years ago

    #27 7 years ago

    No problemo...I agree, the search could be better.

    #29 7 years ago

    I bet the ages at RGP average much higher than here. Talk about crotchety

    I am 43 with a bad back so I know what SSathre is saying about going on 82.

    #30 7 years ago

    Thanks but I have a few more to get.

    #32 7 years ago

    If this thread was on RPG, it would end up as a political rant about the condition of pins in southern Italy during the late 80's. Some on that group need to be put on some heavy med's.

    #50 7 years ago
