    Cause I feel like it would be. Soul-wrenchingly terrible.

    30 wasn't bad. I found 37 to be the scariest so far.

    30 is not a good spot - too old to be a kid, but too young still to be taken seriously.

    I just hit 34 and I'm pretty awesome, I bet 40 sucks though.

    As a disclaimer, this is all a far off hypothetical for me. I am only 24. I have just been morbidly pondering death and aging like any happy-go-lucky twenty something.

    It's like being tied down and having your eyes torn out of their sockets by ravenous vultures. Only with cake.

    Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm. Cake.

    But by the time you are 30, you might as well just tape the cake to your ass, no?

    30 is fine, and if no one takes you seriously by now, it has nothing to do with your age.

    It's fine for me. I made it to 31 with no problems, but results may vary from person to person.

    Damn, people. It's been a couple of centuries since either 30 or 40 was a death sentence.

    I liked turning 30 and I loved turning 40. I wouldn't go back to my 20s for anything, even if I was hot back then. In addition to the not being taken seriously, there was the whole being insecure and actually worrying about what other people thought. Self-confidence is a nice perk of age.

    My suspicion is that the whole "Not caring what people think as you get older thing" is more like "Awww, **** it, I'm not long for this world anyway."

    It's not the age, it's the cynicism. Which is why I'm technically 94.

    If being 30 depresses you, just think about it this way: one day you'll be 60 (or 70 or 99) and you'll wish you were 30. :p

    You've definitely got the "Aw, **** it" part right. I'd amend that last part to "I don't care if I'm long for this world or not."

    Or what Ramza said.

    But regardless, I wouldn't go back. This thread is reminding me of why.

    People who reach the age of 100 & beyond fascinate me... I would love to be that age, but I know I won't get there.

    What blows my mind is people who live to be super-centenarians. Like "Remember when I turned 100, 15 years ago?"

    I haven't found any of the aforementioned ages to be bad at all. :p Ask me in a few when I hit 60.
