Knicked from Facebook!
Well, if that doesn't amuse you, maybe this will. A friend sent me this - I haven't seen it on Facebook but the format is very familiar.
Except that next year you will be one year older and the year will have incremented to 2020, and the next year one year older and it will be 2021.
Why do we have to wait 1000 years?
It is not quite perfect
I am 69 and have been for 11/12th's of the year (birthday in early December)
My birth year is 1949
1949 + 69 = 2018
However if you state that it is your age at your birthday in that year ( 1949 + 70 = 2019) then it works.
BUT IT WILL ALWAYS WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Except for, like Roger, in the last few weeks before your birthday, your age plus the year of your birth will ALWAYS add up to the current year!
The mystery is, why should anyone be amazed, let alone "the Chinese and foreign masters"!
It's deep, deep Facebook idiocy!
It depends upon how we define a person. Turnover of cells is vastly faster than life-span;
In case we think brian cells are for life, turnover of water, and we are 95% water, is around 4% per day.
So there is almost nothing left of me , born 1945, in 2019.
We will be here next Xmas, and for many after, Peter (I hope), if we start THAT discussion.
I was more disgusted that someone thought the above was a real mystery, or else to foist it on others, that to wonder who they were.
John, I was more interested in the concept of our age.After all we exist because of an uninterrupted handing down of cellular information over ca 3 billion years. Peter , age 3,000,000,074 and 3/4.
Would that we had any sort of 'racial memory'! It might prevent some of the mistakes being made in politics right now.
But we don't, any more than we can inform our children about the mistakes we made when we were their age.
As Marlon Brando said, when his character was asked, "What are you rebelling against?", "Whaddaya got?"
We think we have problems! It's this time of year in North America:
Squirrels like walnuts. Which takes us back (fortuitously!) to Xmas!
The TSSC gets in on the act!
