The Age of our Members..?

I am 16 :)

 

I usually don’t like sharing my age on forums because sometimes people see it and decide I have nothing valuable to say but I might as well be honest about it. 

Current System: MSI B450M Mortar Titanium, AMD Radeon 570 8GB (ASRock enclosure), AMD Ryzen 5 2600X, 16 GB Corsair Vengeance PRO RAM 3200 MHz, Corsair H100i Cooler, Corsair 280X Chassis

Wasn't some of the most important Scientific Discoveries and Inventions were made by folks still in their Teens?

In my view, people should be focused on the facts, and content of what someone says and not the age of the individual, and that also means not automatically dismissing something because it comes from someone of a certain age, whether old or young. 

 

This is applicable not only on the Internet, but also in real life. While you may not have the life experience necessarily, that doesn't mean your experience is wrong, nor does it mean that you don't have knowledge in areas that others simply don't have.

Yeah, back when the average life expectancy was half of what it is now.

 

 

Wouldn't a poll be more appropriate for this question?

I think they meant a poll for the OP, the question of users' ages :

Now I just got a new cellphone and I say, "Meh... I can call people and text, use it as a hotspot... whatever..."  It seems like I have aged out of being excited by the technology.  I feel like this happens to people, we just grow out of it.

Well, aside from more megapixel on your screen and camera, smart phone virtually is stagnant in terms of technology breakthrough, unless they can cramp a 99WHr battery into it. So, yeah, I mean, there's nothing new under the sun. So it is not because you grow old, it's because there's virtually nothing exciting to talk about.

 

By the way, I'm within 31-35 years old.
