    Default The Indignities of Old Age

    One feels that this forum has been established for long enough that this topic will have a certain relevance to not a few of our members…

    To begin:

    Nose hairs grow lush and rampant. (In need of a trim pretty much every other day. WTF.)

    Also, one doesn't heal as fast as one used to.

    You can't have as many sex partners as you used to have before

    Also, you can piss yourself, at times

    Hangover does last days.
    Cast from heaven, now to rule in hell
    A cry for freedom in a long lost tale
    Darkness is all around me
    Or is it all within me?
    Tired of living on my knees
    Can I be set free, be the real me?

    Dammit, so true.. but that's not inherently a bad thing, 'cause if offers you the excuse to keep drinking in order to deal with the very consequences of the hangover itself

    Having to always put a hat on before going out in the sun. Always. Without exception. Even if it's for just a little while.

    Better a bald man with a good fitting Fedora than a bald man with a bad fitting toupet.

    Being pear-shaped as a default setting and, despite being bald, being hairier than one has ever been (ew).

    He's clearly being talked to by the people around him, you can see Dr. Biden point to something to the President's left and he turns and looks, causing a gust of wind to pick up his jacket and push it away. You can watch Dr. Biden's dress in the video to see how strong the gusts of wind are. I'm fairly sure they're literally standing under a helicopter with it's rotors spinning. Also, the video looks slowed down.

    All that aside, I've seen people from the age of 2 to 100 struggle to put on a jacket before. I struggle half the damn time and I'm 25.

    Yawn.

    One of the indignities of old age is that we tend be to slow and cautious in our movements (lest we break a hip or something).

    Yawn.
    And we tire easily.
