    To make a long un-interesting story short basically i need to know everybody's age. (for a study into the English language)

    Reading the forum titles and creating threads in the correct place might also be a good study into the English language.

    Agreed - also : making stats meaningful by having balanced ranges - so just to lump all those over 36 together, seems very random and unjustified ...:meh:

    +1 Considering that age "group" constitutes the majority in the poll thus far. :eyebrow:

    That's a bit presumptive. Perhaps he's looking at some variable that has stabilized after age 35, and has a fairly quick rate of change in some of the other age ranges.

    I certainly am curious as to what exactly he's studying...polls that people can opt not to respond to tend to skew data a bit.
     
  9. I'm curious to what he's studying as well.

    It is a paper on the effects of lumping 36 year olds in with 63 year olds and observing why they both get upset.

    Just kidding, I'm 28 for the record.

    What about those poor 8 and 9 year olds? They don't get a category!

    Looks like a poll created by a high schooler, to whom anything over 35 is incomprehensibly old. Now that he's past 64, I wonder if Paul McCartney has more insight about how old someone needs to be before someone else needs to feed him. Paul Simon will soon discover how "terribly strange to be 70." So will I, sadly.

    So, with the dip in numbers for 26-35 and then back up in the 36+ range, for how many of you does that jive with your life? For me, I played bass extensively up until about 22, then dropped it for 20 years (life seem to have gotten in the way), and then only picked it up again about 7 years ago (when I was 38). Just wondering...
