Been wondering / Question

Postby Roudy000 » Wed Aug 21, 2013 7:57 pm

I was wondering just by curiosity the age average from here? Not that I care really, just that friends are asking me what kind of group you are and what kind of people there is in it.
I'm having a blast reading you all and I'd love to get to know you all better sometimes like at the show. A lot of my entourage are intrigued by my new/old passion...Some are finding it funny that I want my first pin so much. But I presume we are all different type of people, arent we?

Hope my little "out of nowhere" threads are appreciated :mrgreen: By the way i'm 29

Didn't someone already do an age poll somewhere? Maybe you can edit this thread to include a poll.

Also, many members have their age as part of their profile as well.

Anyway ... 39.

Sorry Otto didn't go that far in the past thread. It's not really a poll but just a random discussion ;)

A world without guys like Terry in it would probably be like the future world in Demolition Man. One filled with 47-year-old virgin men sitting around in their beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiener". -Sparky

Yeah, I understand, but quite a few members prefer to lurk instead of discussing in a thread (currently 119 online; 33 registered members) and a poll is a super-simple way for them to participate and might paint a better picture for everyone interested in the demographics.

Here's a poll from Pinside: http://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/ ... ers-by-age

Choose your age range:

10-20 : (5 votes) ----------- 2 %
21-30 : (35 votes) ----------- 13 %
31-45 : (170 votes) ----------- 62 %
46-60 : (62 votes) ----------- 22 %
61-75 : (3 votes) ----------- 1 %
76 + : (1 votes) ----------- 0 %

276 votes

50 in a short few months. Part of the generation that experienced EM only pinballs on location and the invention and migration to the video arcade era. Good Times.

My friends all told me I was the only 4o year old 2o year old they knew at the time.

I said that was ok as I would be the only 20 year old 40 year old they knew as well.

By years older than dirt but frequently view much younger people as old fudgy farts. Between adolescence and death it's merely a number. What you do with it during that period is what counts.
Pins: Scared Stiff - Getaway - Funhouse - Twilightzone - No Fear - Attack from Mars - Indiana Jones - Cirqus Voltaire (prototype) - Medieval Madness - Tales of Arabian Nights. Arcades: Robotron (cocktail) - Stargate - Midway Haunted House. Jukes: Seeburg 100c - Seeburg 222.
Rumors of my demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Also big 50 in february
Got to realize a dream last week, thanks to my son, and bought my first pin.
I hope it is the first of a long line that will take up place in my basement.
Glad to see there is still a lot of freaks who love to spend their hard earned money on pins.
Elated to finally join you.

See you in Aylmer.
