    In response to popular demand .... I have added a poll to the thread to give us an idea of the age analysis of the participants

    All those who have already declared should also vote.

    Hi Martin,

    What is of equal importance here is the mental age of the participants!

    In April 2012 I looked at all the personal information I could find that members had given. I found 61 members who had listed their age. The average was 61 and the median was 60.

    I didn't think of that When we're done with this one, let's have a poll on mental age, attention span, and steadiness of hand

    Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
    Looking back at the years gone by like so many summer fields
    In sixty-five I was seventeen and running up one-o-one
    I don't know where I'm running now, I'm just running on
    Gotta do what you can just to keep your love alive
    Trying not to confuse it with what you do to survive
    In sixty-nine I was twenty-one and I called the road my own
    I don't know when that road turned onto the road I'm on

    Some mornings I feel like 100, but, yes, 67. When that song came out in 1977, I definitely identified with it. Here's a video.
