Do you get smarter or more understanding as you get older?

Or both? I hope I can be old and wise someday =D I know most of the people on this board that really have their shit together are older than the rest of us.... I don't know though... I wish I could retain my youth in physical form and just get older mentally.

Before you can be old and wise, you have to first be young and stupid.

yup learn from experiences and i think u just become more enlightened and try to live for the future instead of the present :smile: when this mentality sets in is when you begin to take steps to becoming older and wiser :smile:

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

IMO, it depends on what you do with your time.

no way!

Old people suck. The problem is that they think that just because they used to think exactly as we young people do and out grew it that young people have a lot to learn. But the truth is, not many old people could beat up young people. Young people are way better fighters. How many professional boxers are over 50? Not many. FIN

I'm sure a properly trained one-legged 70 year old woman could take you out.

anyway, in response to the original question:
i dunno if i qualify as "older" :wink:
but sometimes as we age, we realize that, while we may know a few things, we most assuredly do not know it all...

Well I am 36 now, not old yet but not pup either.
I can honestly say that I am wiser than when I was 18, when you bump your head so many times, you learn not to jump and make decisions on a whim.
Also when you get older you realize that you know absolutely nothing (when I was 18 I thought I knew it all).
The problem as you get old is what I call "crystallization" I see most of my friends crystallized by life (career, kids, materialism) They tend to forget, that they used to feel life more intensely, they become slaves to routine, and the treadmill of society could be devastating.
I my self was getting caught up in it, until I took some steps, I left the city life, and live in a log cabin now, try to grow my food and live very simple.
And from my part I am doing an effort to get younger mentally, I try to play more (the other day I got me a kite, believe it or not) and I had a blast.
The only thing Is some times I am lonely all my playmates became old and boring, you cant have a dinner with them with out bringing up a conversation about there stock, job or kids.
