    Okay, so drinking is out. That's fine.
    We can still do this thing.
    What we gotta do is start with a nude beach and work our way up to a river lot party. Make sure you don't sleep for a couple of days first and we will spin you in circles...same thing.

    ...I will still shave off your eyebrows when your passed out and keep the horny guys away. I'm cool like that.


    Okay, okay. If through some bizarre chain of events I actually meet you I will consider engaging in your crazy plan. Happy now?

    Yes, of course.

    But now I'm worried that you may be a bad influence.

    Of course you roll over and die at 30. Don't you want to reach renewal, too?

    Age is such bullshit to me. You have no idea how many people have pressured me not to age too quickly, but suddenly when you turn 30, your life has to fall into place or people look down on you. It's so hypocritical. If you want people in their 30s to act more maturely, start encouraging them to knock it off when they're in their 20s. Better yet, when they're teenagers. If they don't start doing stupid shit, they won't continue doing it. Make them work, make them join organizations. If they want to go wild, they can do it on their own time like adults do.

    Basically, if you're "30" and aren't ready to be 30, you shouldn't be doing 30 year old things. I have worked with so many young mother's and father's and they haven't aged a day since they had a kid. Leaving grandma to babysit while you go clubbing 4 nights a week to bring someone home is just complete denial of your situation.

    I think what it comes down too is when you get older & mature, the things that were important you, like how many pieces of metal one can shove in their face or wearing ripped up clothes & a band t-shirt everyday, just seen less important or even silly to you. Plus a person's tastes change too. I'll be 31 next month & I still like to play video games from time to time & crank my amp up to 11 & shake the pictures up the wall, but most of the time I'm too busy with work, & spending time with my 3 little crumb crunchers & making sure their needs are met before my own. One's priorities change.

    Like Sunriser said there are plenty of people my age that choose to ignore their responsibilities & want to still live like they're 21 & single. You just can't do that anymore & still be a productive member of society. It's just all part of growing up.

    I was just joking. I wasn't saying you're old; I just mean it's old for a dog. I mean, I'm almost dead for a dog.

    You have been reported to the AARP advocacy hotline, punk!
    They LOVE kicking young whipper-snapper butt.

    ...Kids and their damn shenanigans!

    Cheese and rice!

    Maybe that's what I was looking for. Perhaps I like a little roughing up! I just sure hope they don't use those whips over there on the wall.

    I'm starting to see a pattern here.
    There sure are a lot of canine references here.
    Title of the thread- "roll over and play dead"
    Then the dog years shirt.

    HMMM.

    When me and my family have a get-together someplace like a park, my dad often goes on the swings, and he's in his mid-40s.

    I honestly think 30 is still pretty young. It's definitely not "old" in my opinion.

    I think people start giving you a hard time when you hit 30 because it's very close to that milestone age of 35...the age at which you should own a home, have a "real" job, be married and have pushed out at least three children. Society has standards for everyone and, so as not to be embarrassed or ostracized, people will just conform like the sheep they are.

    There is really no reason to 'die' at 30. We just do it because we're taught and expected to do that. Going against the grain is definitely difficult when all the "mature" people are staring at you and shaking their heads and muttering something about how some people never grow up. Hell, I say go against what society says to do. Buy yourself a new toy. Wear crazy clothes. Dye your hair bright green. Toilet paper someone's house on Halloween. The only age you can truly die from is old age. If you "die" (mentally, emotionally) at any other age, it's because you allow it to happen. There is no cut-off age for having fun, no matter what anyone says. Usually the people who say 30-35 is the time to settle down are the ones who are stuck in lousy marriages, working boring unfulfilling jobs and have bratty kids. They don't want anyone else to possibly have fun in life when they can no longer have fun, so they try to drag anyone with a better life down with them. Misery loves company, it does.

    Damn Cambion, you sure are spot-on with this stuff. On the same note, though, people shouldn't be acting childish at the same time... which quite a few people on this forum even older than me tend to. I don't see why it's so hard for some people to enjoy stuff they liked as a kid, but not be a complete baby at the same time.

    Oh please. Paranoid much?

    More likely it's because they don't have respect for someone who hasn't learned that still acting like they did when they were 20 gets them nowhere fast. Most adults expect you to learn something from the life lessons by that point in life. People that don't are examples of either stubborn people or people who will never learn and end up a drain on society. That doesn't mean that wearing whatever you want when your not on the job, or having hobbies isn't an option, it just means there is a time and place for everything like that. People who don't know the difference are self centered and an anal irritant for everyone. Someone has to be the grown up...If you don't want to grow up, that's on you, but if your not a grown up then you are choosing the role of the child in society. That's how it works.

    You can have a family and a job(boring or not) and still have fun. You just can't do it your way all the time. When you realize that....you become a grown up. Pick your battles, does it really matter what you're required to wear at work or if you have to take piercings out? It's not that big of a deal. I guess people who fight that kind of stuff are still stuck in fighting imaginary authority figures. Go fight the good fight guys, let me know how it works out for ya.
