    Great to see one in seven of us under the age of 35 in the poll (so far)

    Should be a solid market for pins for decades to come

    Quoted from KozMckPinball:

    "How young are we?"

    Yes, years of age is just a number.

    From my time on pinside, I have found someone in their mid 50s can still be younger than many in their 30s or 40s. It's a fact.

    Quoted from thedarkknight77:

    Talk about a perfect bell curve.

    Just realized that I'm sliding down the fast part of the Pinsider age bell curve.

    The pinball designers fit that bell curve as well. Seems fitting to know your customers..

    Quoted from nogoodnames222:

    26, every time I've bought a pin I get a comment about how young I am (but I just wish I had started saving up money and buying games back in highschool). If anyone in here doesn't have any heirs, feel free to put me in your will

    Kid, everybody here wishes they had been digging deeper into their pockets back when you were high school

    I know many here who are kicking their selves for not being more aggressive 8-9 years ago when old pins were still cheap. Prices have made some astronomical price increases in only the last 3 years.

    52....no wait, yeh 52.....hang on, why am I disclosing my age again, and what site am I on.....

    Quoted from uptownsinclair:

    It looks like pinheads don’t make it to 70. Probably all that wear and tear on our bodies from moving machines.

    Naw, they just aren't on pinside.

    My age bracket is winning (41 - 45)

    What do I get as a prize?

    Why not everybody gets a trophy now.

    I was thinking of starting my second childhood so I'll need to check a different box each month just so you know I'm not waffling.
