    Mine, well one of mine, was a big fat Harley Davidson motorcycle which I loved, but sold after four years. Generally I've found the mid-life "thing" to be a positive energy for change and renewal in my life.

    Wow, not a single one of those. I guess I had my midlife crisis when
    I was in my late 20s.

    Why experience a "mid-life crisis"
    when God gives us all one 24 hour day at a time from the moment of birth until our brain waves cease
    to realize our full secular and spiritual potential?

    I have noticed no particular difference between the tendency of believers and non-believers to find themselves questioning their lives and how they are living them somewhere there in its 'middle' section.

    I'm not sure it signifies "crisis" as such, but #31 ... "Always note when politicians or business leaders are younger than you"... rings a bell, more especially with sportsmen and women. Cricketers and footballers my age retired 15-20 years ago.

    Except for
    1, 31 and 40, I have all of them.
    I am not feeling well, it's time for an epitaph. I might be dead but was not informed.

    #16 "Switch from Radio 2 to indie stations like 6 Music": this rings a bit false to me.

    People in their midlife now were getting into music in the 60s and 70s and mostly continue to have a nose for what's interesting and new ~ and with so much music nowadays referencing bygone genres, I think 'this midlife generation' is probably more able to listen to anything than the generations before and after them.

    The idea that new music is just no good is more common I'd say among older people who are 15-30 years beyond any midlife crisis.

    I don't know the answer to that question; do you have a suggestion?

    #12 "Want to make the world a better place" seems like a duffer ~ surely most people, of any age, at any stage of their life, want to make the world around them [to some degree or in just some small way] a better place? Why would this motivation be rooted in [or have anything to do with] a supposed midlife "crisis"?

    I'm not planning on showing up for my own funeral. Some might think this to be rude and insensitve on my part, but I've informed all the members of my family about this and explained why I will be absent. So no one should be surprised or offended if I seem largely unresponsive, and disinterested in attending this final public event to be thrown in my honor.

    Of course, I'm assuming that it will be in my honor, and not just be an opportunity to dance on my grave and divide the spoils... but I would like to be there when they find out I gave all of my worldly goods to the bag lady I had to chase off my property at least once a week for the past 3 1/2 years... but I digress... because that's what I do when I'm bored... like for example, right now as a matter of fact...

    What are you talking about? Is this some sort of misplaced jab about something?

    I can't be bothered by some narcissistic "crisis".

    On a daily basis, I have too many things to do. Crying in my beer gets me nowhere.
