How the engineer mind works:

Anticipated life expectancy: 81 years

Therefore:
0 - 27 = YOUNG
28 - 54 = MIDDLE (aged)
55 - 81 = OLD

Left brained, artsy types hate this logic!

It seems a bit unbalanced the way the categories are categorized!

I mean I fall into the smallest group which only includes a time of 5 years, but if I were 12 years older, I'd fall into the largest group, which (potentially) includes a time of 57+ years (if people were to live to age 112 - and they can)

The poll (or system) was obviously set up by a young person who clumps 55 year olds with 95 year olds.

Solarstarshines, I regret to inform you that life does not end at 55. I still remember when I thought someone 35 was old, now I think of them as younguns. Believe it or not, but you can actually be over 55 and still have fun.

I remember when I thought 30 was "OLD".
Then 40 became the new old.
When 50 was the old mark, I was planning to retire.
Couldn't quite retire so 60 became the new old.
Now I think it's 70 but I'm loosing track.
When 80 becomes old, it won't matter because I probably won't remember.
If I make it to 90, I know it won't matter 'cause I'll be eating baby food again.

Heavens forbid the time I start eating baby food. I'm not there yet and hope I don't get there. I still enjoy a good steak.

I guess I'm going from middle aged to old in 2 days, that doesn't seem fair.
