Default Whats the average age of our members

Im not sure if this has been done, i tried searching but couldnt find anything.
I am wondering how old or young our members are as i see a lot of college posts but i also hear "how the wife wont let me get another tank"
Im just curious i guess.

You can add to the poll above or simply post on the thread.

*EDIT* when i say "old" i really mean "very experienced in life" :-)

Really? I'd have bet all the money in my wallet and my Patriots season tickets that this poll, with this range of ages was created by a 22 year old who thinks 30 years old is almost dead.

Based on that poll in 2011, it looks like the average age is around 30 and the median is around 25.

It's funny to see how old people actually are and not what you imagined.

Checker at the grocery store last night says to me: "Every time I see you I have to do a double take, you look exactly like my best friends father."

The checker looked at least 30. So I really didn't take it as a compliment.

I'm a very HOT 53 year old.

(Well, maybe not so hot. But I am 53, and damn proud that I made it this far! ;-))
