Who's Under 21?

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
I'm starting this forum to make a point. Age shouldn't really matter in an anonymous online forum. But, for the sake of discussion, I'm 19, and I'm on my way to a B.A. So, if you want to join my statement against the arbitraryness of both age and time in general, feel free.

being under 21 means nothing on a college campus.

But show me a freshman and a senior side-by-side and I'll show you a BIG difference.

Who gives a shit about old people who think they know more than you do, or your opinion should be discounted because of your age. Screw em, and have a blast.

how so? im almost in grad school, and yet i look like a sophomore in high school...
people dont always look their age. i owe that to my damn hispanic blood...
but by the time im in my mid 30s, ill look like im in my lower 20s. the curse will turn into a blessing i suppose...

what difference are u refering to...???
cause age is rarely linked to how mature u look at this point of maturity. how u act is a different story though...

You may appear smarter than 99% of the people you meet, but don't let that become your pedestal...once you realize that you either are more aware or more intelligent(or whatever) than other people, and you begin to form your fortress, it really puts a damper on your sex life

Woohoo! People responded to my forum! Anyway, thanks for the vote of confidence. And yes, college is a blast, and yes, I never want to leave, and yes, I agree that a college senior will be more mature than a college freshman. Well, I have three midterms tomorrow, that's all for tonight, folks!

I wasn't referring to age. I was referring to maturity, dedication, education, and in fact "wisdom."

And DAMN people, lighten up! I'm not saying that I look down on anyone under 21 for crying out loud. I'm not saying people under 21 don't have anything to contribute to these boards. All I'm saying is that age and experience DO make a difference (whether some of you want to believe that or not), and I was curious as to where people here are where both of those are concerned.

Now since everyone here is getting all bent out of shape over this, I'll just drop it. Forget I ever said anything. I'll just give the idiots here their just desserts for posting ridiculously or ignorantly, instead of giving them the benefit of the doubt because of their age, education, experience, etc.

Gee, who to get angry with first?

Oh, I'm fine. I think it's just frustrating for anyone -- no matter how hard they try -- to get an idea across when it's constantly being misconstrued.

I don't know how much clearer I can be that I'm not trying to put anyone down or segregate one group from another here.

Age is just a number.

I am 18 (turned 18 on January 2nd). My gf would fit into the other group. But I wasn't supposed to say that.

If you put an Aggie freshman and an Aggie senior next to each other then it is difficult to tell the difference.

Put both of them in the middle of a flock of sheep and then you'll really see who has more "experience" in life.

(Senior ags learn how to do the donkey punch before they go on their elephant walk, so watch out for that, too.)

I hate people who make generalized statements and say its for the whole and then think so highly of themselves because they are "older" and "wiser". obviously someone has a insecurity problem if he has to keep making a point that age makes you more mature and wiser.

first point : Age shouldn't really matter in an anonymous online forum. : Yes i agree with you, i should add any physicals or biological caracteristics does not matter on an internet Forum. That's the interest of this type of forum : you have only be appreciated by what you write and not for your apparence or your age.

Second point : my statement against the arbitraryness of both age and time in general wells it depends on what you say, if you say a wise thing , it will still be a wise thing whatever your age is. If you say crack or a stupidity ,the young age is an excuse, because you are not supposed to be fully mature.
Futhermore, you more you become old , the more wise you can become (i write you can, because it's not at all an automatic process, it's a personal research, that will last your entire life, and which is unlimited). You will become wise because you will become more intelligent, you will become more wise because your own vision of the world, the society and human will change.
At the age of 18 i consider that i was wise ( i haven't got any teenage crisis, and was quiete calm, excepting when i was playing tennis ...), but later my own beliefs has change. Last years bad events made me growing up, more. Time make you changing you cannot do nothing against that. However it make also less and less enthousiastic in some areas, so i enjoy to chat here, in order to stay young and enthousiastic.
