Addict, one of the great things about the internet is how adults don't know if you're young or not....kids get to talk with equal voices.

But I would love to know how old the Barrow-Wight is, so I can appropriately gauge my amazment at the site....and some of the other mods, too. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

The Barrow Wight is in the United States Air Force, so he wouldn't be that young, and he wouldn't be that old.

But. Yeah. Silly Leisl singing Sixteen Going on Seventeen. I used to think that when I turned sixteen I would be able to dance around a gazebo just like her . . . crazy little kid . . .

I know I'm not the oldest person here, but it looks like I'm the oldest person to post on this so far. I turned 20 last July, and I'm not really too pleased about it.

I don't feel like I'm 20, and I don't look it either. I feel like I've barely begun to live, and yet I'm already halfway to 40!! Scary!!

I will not say my age. I think that the great thing about this site and any other ineternet site like this is that people don't know you. Age won't make others think you're inferior or underdeveloped. Nothing is based on how old you are, what you look like, your gender, etc. All that matters is what you write. I do not like this thread, but hey, everyone is at least a little bit curious sometimes. So, I will not say my age (oops, I think I might have mentioned it in another thread but oh well) but I will say this. I am not old but I am not young, I am in between at a significant age.

We are the Dead and so age defines us not.

Rather, we flit through the threads with wit, imagination, insight, humour, creativity, intelligence, even civility and courtesy.

Hey, Willie, I read that thread and I know how old you are! You cannot hide it any longer...mwah ha ha ha. I wonder if this would be a good occasion for blackmail...hmmm...

Anyway, like I said, I'm older than some and younger than others...but the same age as Willie.

Nianna Telmnar is 18 (yes I actually got a calculator and worked it out) my dog's only 28, maybe 30 or 31, depending how far through the year we are. Did you know, just under two months is one dog year? Yeah, well this is a pretty useless post since I don't want to tell you my age, feel free to guess though.

I guess that Brinniel is... hmm... 17? Don't shout at me if I'm wrong!

Hmmm...people say I act like a 14 year old, and look like one some times...but some say I have the wisdom of a grandmother (was even called "grandma" in chinese by people I've sort of mentored!)

But anyways, I'm 21. And a half...having your birthday in the middle of the year is very VERY confusing.

Being neither living nor dead, I don't reall y "age", but I will base how old I am on how long I have existed. Now, let's see... I was 36 when I was ensnared by the Ring, it's now the Seventh Age.... oh my! I must be at least 10,000 years old!
