I'm 50 this year and can still easily polish a bottle of hard tack in a sitting. I will also be running 100 km's over the weekend.

I don't think I have anyone on ignore. That may be about to change.

I'm a bit older

Will run 30kms this weekend and do my regular yard work, play basketball with my kids ,etc

Had to cut out the alcohol though as it was too much and not worth the pain


I hate you.

I had to give up refereeing in my early fifties as I just kept getting injured. Strains etc not impact.

I had my 64th birthday last week.

I play hockey twice a week during the off season and four times a week in (SH) winter. I play wing, so run the length or the field on attack and come back for defence.

I can't believe some of you softcocks! I popped into the rugby club on Saturday, got embroiled in an aggressive pint-buying round and staggered home totally squiffy. Have very little recollection of Saturday evening, but right as rain on Sunday morning. I don't get gout (although my father suffered and I believe it is hereditary), my knees and hips are pain free. Not much in the way of nose hairs either, although my right eyebrow is prone to luxuriance.

Odd thing is my eyesight.

In my youth I used to wear glasses for short sightedness and, although I had excellent vision close up (useful for draughting and illustrating), I couldn't see distance.

Now it's reversed; my distance vision is pretty good, but I need readers for computer work and I find that I'm no longer the voracious reader of my youth as my eyes tire reading books.

When you explain your training regime to the Doc and they show you your hip x-ray , smirk and say '' I think you've rather been overdoing things''. Then explains that they really don't recommend hip replacements too early. You can then look forward to viewing the weather forecast and predicting which days you will experience a dull aching pain.
Seriously though, no one has yet touched on the most depressing discovery - the fact that the majority of women of a certain age inevitably prefer to invest their money and energy in external trappings, over a serious long term firming and toning regime. There are some serious disappointments lying in wait for you younger posters !

Well, if you'd driven everywhere instead of running when you were younger, you wouldn't have this problem now!

You do on the treadmill test. The good news is that you don't take off.

Not at all.

There's a saying: there's no fool like an old fool, and I suspect it's quite apt in your case.

The notion of elderly men thinking that they are somehow attractive to young women (or even not-so-young women) is frankly a little pathetic. More so if they mistake that emotion for jealousy.

It is YOUR emotions I find quite amusing.
And your preconceived ideas and opinions that rule your .. thought process ?

Quite predictable, actually.

I'm quite surprised at the number of ladies, much younger than me, who want to chat me up!

But I don't look my age, dress reasonably smartly and can engage in conversation nicely.

The Management keeps me on track. There's no way I'll stray.

You're the one coming on boasting about how attractive you are to young women.

All I said was that I suspected that it was more your perception rather than any real admiration from the fair sex.

However, I honestly don't care, and am quite happy for you to continue to wallow in your illusion.

I consider it unlikely that it has any grounding in reality, but even if it does, the subject certainly holds no interest for me.

Suppose it doesn't matter either way as I'm not planning on shagging them anyway.

Watched a school girl in civvies, at the rugby, the other day, thought she was quite fit and grownup. Was ashamed, actually ... :blush:

Then her daughter arrived from the pavillion, "Hello Maaa !!"

Healthcare. Look at the cost from my bill below. I also have to pay The Managements and basic cover for the kiddiwinks and the grand kiddiwinks.

In ireland we have a system where you pay the same amount regardless of age / existing medical conditions. I am assuming that´s not the same in the UK then or is it just that its the gold plated package?

lolz, paying for you kids & grandkids healthcare !
thought you said they were successful ?

tbh they sound like a bunch of spazzo leech plums who get you to bump off relatives so they can get nice houses, cars and now healthcare.

seriously, you need to take a big step away from this place, nobody cares about your family, your money, your made up claims and cars and boats and shite - you just like the fat annoying kid at school that everyone hates yet claiming "oh they are my friends" despite them telling you all the time 'go away globus we don't like you'

just how sad are you to post a BUPA renewal ? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

its probably about £500 for the health, and 8k for the mental bills you incur by being an utter mental lying bellend nutcase

It would be nice to hear someone say that he looks old for his age, and women find him less attractive now than when he was younger, and they didn't find him very attractive then, either. I would a respect a man like that, for his honesty, or modesty.

The more I read on this thread, the better I feel. I`ve lead a pretty full life, abusing my body in all manners of way over the years, but, I am pleased to see that after reading about you lot, apart from some natural wear and tear and a diagnosis of COPD (which is a bit debilitating) at 72 I seem to be very healthy compared to a lot of you. :lol:

I'm pleased for you. The number of things my Rugby career has thrown up are mounting.

Looks like I shall need a few vertebra fusing and a new right hip to go with the left one.

That's why I fork out a lot of money on Healthcare. I don't want to get in the NHS queue. I've a specialist appointment shortly and won't have to queue in the corridor for hours like my neighbour did.
