    ... or you're only as young as you feel; or, more nearly accurate, as old or young as you think (the content of your thought). Decades ago I divided by 2 which was an accurate approximation of how I thought and felt. Then, later on, realized that -20 was accurate. Now, subtract 10-15 depending on my chess rating and/or the day of the week. No BS: Just happy to be here.

    You're only as young as the girl you feel.

    There's a guy lives down the road from me,
    must be at least 65. But his girl is from the
    Philippines. She's around 30 🙂


    How do you feel about these kind of relationships?

    Big age gap.

    No, but I have seen many documentaries about similar marriages and relationships. There are also Swedish men who go to Asian countries and bring back Asian women, and often these women are treated badly, sometimes even thrown out of their homes. I hope the particular couple mentioned in the earlier post are (is?) much happier.

    I married an Asian woman, but I must have done something wrong as she was (and remains) three years older than me.

    As a point of order, I think the expression "you're only as old as the woman you feel" is one of Groucho Marx's.

    Are there short and long weeks? I thought they all had 168 hours each.

    I need to slack off a bit, my weeks seem like 300 hours. 😞
