Interesting graph on top, assuming it reflects the actual age distribution among all active members in this forum and not only the ones who have voted. There are some things which make far more sense to me now.

OP: Thank you for starting this thread!

I was thinking that too, I wonder if we are thinking of the same thing.

I wonder how many of us are considered stone-aged?

yeah, and they way the poll is set up, some teens are mixed in the 20's group, and if you're 30, you are also in the 20's group. Either way there are more who voted in this poll in their 20's than over 40.

If your profession is "retired" you're either a lottery winner or from the stone-age.

If you can retire young enough to enjoy it that's great. I know people who seem to work until they die, and have little to no interest in retiring.

I got a friend who is a retired cop, retired Army and now works as a civilian on an Army base. (his wife is a retired cop as well)

I might end up doing some part time work if I get bored. Time will tell..

I think even if I won the lottery I would probably return to work (part time) somewhere.

Well, there's 800,000 members on this forum, and apparently 90,000 or so are active (with more than 10 posts). So with 700-800 votes, this poll shows almost a 1% sample. So it could be reasonably accurate... (maybe).

Just old enough to remember when computer displays were black and white. (or black and green as the case may be)

I wonder if it had have asked what generation (X/Y/Terminally Bored) you were how the results would go?

I think the title puts off many older members.
