What’s your permanent age?Kim is naturally an old curmudgeon so he puts his around 50. I figure that I really belong in my mid twenties. That way I don't feel guilty being slightly immature, watching anime, and making things go boom, but I still make a halfway decent living. And I can still relate to Amybear since her natural age is somewhere in her giggly tweens most of the time.
I’ve observed that everyone has a permanent age that appears to be set at birth. For example, I’ve always been 42-years old. I was ill-suited for being a little kid, and didn’t enjoy most kid activities. By first grade I knew I wanted to be an adult, with an established career, car, house and a decent tennis game. I didn’t care for my awkward and unsettled twenties. And I’m not looking forward to the rocking chair. If I could be one age forever, it would be 42.

Kim du Toit has an interesting post and for once it isn't about politics or firearms (although I'm sure he'll get back to that):
