Age meme

Well, for a sober 56 year old critic, this is a bit embarrassing...

You Are 18 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Some of what follows is ill-tempered - I have been reading, and listening to, a lot of stupidity over the last few weeks, and my patience has worn thin. All the more so because my computer ate my first draft.
