Anyone notice that their mind operates like that of an older person? My reflexes are lower, I forget things easily, and I ramble on and on like elderly people do.

What did George Carlin say? "I'm an old fart, thats because I got to where I am cause of age. I know people who are wired like old timers and they are 20."

^ Something like that ^

I agree with him, you see, live though stuff and you are born to be that way. The best part of being wired like this is your years ahead of some people in your generation in knowledge and wisdom, some people need to fall on their face several times in life to know not to do whatever makes them do that.

^ Or something like that ^

I tend to do a lot of shifting in what age I act like but I do tend to act older than I am

yeah, yet another thing i have to agree with. plus i've had the aches and pains of an old man since i was a young man.

there was a medical study several years back that did MRI scans of various folk and found that some of these people had serious musculoskeletal problems but just the same these folk did not divulge to the scientists any aches or pains out of the ordinary. this makes me wonder if some people have higher levels of seretonin or endorphins in general, compared to folk [like me] with constant aches and pains who might have less of those substances. or maybe it is just that some folk are just tough old cusses who are hurting but wouldn't talk about their pain with strangers. just some random thoughts.

yes to some extent, but at the same time, a small part of my mind operates just like children -eg i giggle or laugh at certain things/people when i shouldn't

Nah. Nothing but excuses. I respond like an old man because I are one.

I always thought that I was born old and slowly learning to be young. As far as physical aches and pains, I've always had joint problems, even with sciatica in the first grade. My mother told me I was examined for congenital hip dysplasia as an infant but it was decided I was OK (no x-ray was taken). I'm not so sure today. Anyway once I googled second toe longer than big toe (mine is) and it has a name-Morton's Syndrome. This extra length completely screws up the metatarsal arch and causes, it says, a lifetime of joint pain. I had a doctor tell me my foot was not structured to take the weight of my body. Does anyone else have their second toe longer than their first?
