For me, friendships stay intact once they get married (assuming you get along with the spouse). Probably helps if you have a significant other so you can all go out together.
It's once they have kids that they drop off the face of the earth.
This...by far your best post ever Bob.
Moreover, since I began taking great care of myself over a year ago, (lost 60 lbs, eating right, workout nearly every day) I've honestly never felt better physically in my entire life and I turn 40 in 7 weeks.
Photo on strike.
Getting a good laugh out of people who are 30 and complaining about being "old".
and I'm beginning to think they are crazier that I can possibly imagine (and I can imagine a lot).

LOL, yea, you can sit back and say... Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn...
There are a lot of stupid people out there. When I was younger I always assumed people in certain professions or stations in life had to be intelligent, moral and kind. Now that I'm older, that curtain has been pulled back and I see things differently. I kind of miss those rose colored glasses.

Beat me to this comment because I'm older and slower than you are.
(Ed, these young kids don't have the first inkling.)
I read the news today, oh boy .. ..
About a lucky man who made the grade
I find that young people have devolved to have NO common sense... along with most other people on the planet....
(yell at clouds here... )
Oh, and I now triple post... (or is that triple drip... I can't remember )

Hmmm, do work where I work? I used to think the people who worked in education would also be intelligent, moral, and kind. I now know that they are stupid, vindictive, and power hungry but they are too stupid to do that in a real business enterprise.
More things piss me off.
People are stupid drivers. I pass by the slow ones, they are almost always on the phone not paying attention. There is less courtesy around. This morning, for instance, the guy behind me starts blasting his horn. I'm the 5th car back from the light and have no where to go. He wants to make a right and passes the 4 other cars waiting to turn right, goes to the middle of the road and cuts someone off. We have roundabouts and I watched 4-5 cars not let someone else in, all to save themselves 5 seconds of drive time.
People who follow ambulances during rush hour.
For the most part people are good when I'm pushing a stroller, moving out of the way if I don't have any other options and can't easily move out of the way, but I've also encountered a lot of self absorbed pricks who have zero sense and act indignant if they have to change their path slightly on the sidewalk.
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
I hate today's popular music.
I don't get nearly as excited (or as upset) by the things around me.
The older you get the more ear hair you get also you know get to know you limitations a little bit better. I now pay to have things done because it's just worth it to beat myself up.
You learn that stretching before and after any form of minimal exercise is a must, maybe more important than the exercise itself.
Age and gut blows after a Spartan loss are directly proportionate. After the immaculate deflection in 90, I went back to the dorms, had some Wisconsin cheesy chicken, took a nap, then prepped for whatever party(ies) were going on that night. I still sting from numbers like 61-7 and 49-3, and will relive not going for the TD last year in AA and settling for the field goal.

Back in college I don't think I ever stretched ... Now I put 10-15m into it.
I look back at old photos and think "I wasn't nearly as ugly as I thought I was. I shouldn't have spent all of those nights masturbating in the basement". C'est la vie.
I have less and less faith in humanity.
I forget things more.
gave you a +1 on your accomplishments - saw that you got a negbomb, dahell? haters hatin'
been on a health kick too and pushing forty soon. gained some weight since easter but still -20 from january and 10 from my ideal goal. grinding hard. running whenever i can
as for getting older - the longer recovery times, joints get achy, no hops in hoops like my MSU days, pulled my Achilles yesterday while trying to closing sprint on the track. ugh. still have a full head of hair so I feel lucky for that.
it was refreshing to go check out bars in east lansing and have a stack of cash and being able to afford whatever in the bar. flashbacks while walking by students complaining about paying 4 dollar cover. still got carded which was pretty cool. bouncer looked at me surprised at my age: "that will be $5, Sir"
For some reason as I get older (almost 40) I care more about my lawn/landscaping and how it looks. I have a lot more money than I did 10 years ago yet never spend any of it. My downtime is more important to me. Simple relaxing with a beer watching the Tigers or a good movie can sometimes be the highlight of my day.
Finally, for reasons that still perplex me I care less and less about my career and work in general. When I was young I busted my ass and did all the things that were necessary to impress my bosses and now I just try and skate by under the radar.
So true on that jumping off of stuff. Last year I rolled my ankle jumping off of something last year and it took me a good 2 months to recover.
Are you my twin?
The lawn/landscaping is a big one for me. I am way too excited about the fact that my asiatic lilies are about to bloom.
Your a retard.
I don't take a Spartan sports loss nearly as badly as I used to! A football or basketball loss, especially in an important game, used to ruin my day. I still watch every game, but don't get as emotionally invested as before. Probably better for my overall health in the long run.
18-28 year-old girls look like they are twelve to me now.
