    Default Being young sucks!

    10 reasons why being young is so much worse than being old
    1) everyone has leverage on you
    2) you can't get a high paying job anywhere
    3) you have no real life experience with anything
    4) people treat you like a child until age 30
    5) college is overrated as hell and is becoming less and less of an asset
    6) if you're a guy, women probably won't find you really attractive until late 20s once you have a stable job and respectable income
    7) until you find what you're passionate about, you have to do a bunch of work that you dislike but it necessary for your survival
    8) most of the important decisions in your life come at this time despite it being the time when you have least wisdom and experience
    9) old people talk condescendingly to you unless you go TJ lawyer personality on their ass
    10) you can think of a million fun things you'd like to do, but you don't have enough money to do any of them

    2 reasons why being old is so much worse than being young
    1) you're going to die sooner
    2) you look old

    #10 is very true for me... but there are plenty of poor old people and rich young people

    Enjoy your youth while you can for it also brings several assets:

    You have most of your life ahead of you. You have plenty of time to find yourself and your place in the world. I think that's better than being much older and finding out you haven't done what you'd really find fulfilling and finding out you don't have much time left.

    You likely aren't tied down with a 9 to 5 job or children. In a way you have more freedom to spend your time the way you want.

    You are at the peak for physical appearance, mental quickness, and physical prowess.

    You most likely don't have health issues.

    that is kind of true. but the ratio of rich old people is ridiculously higher than the ratio of young rich people. to be old and rich only requires steadily building your wealth over time. this is not hard. being young and rich (unless you inherit it) requires that you be
    - mature beyond your years
    - disciplined and focused beyond your years
    - have direction and purpose much sooner than your peers
    - are enterprising as hell
    - clever and opportunistic

    1) you also have the responsibility of having your whole life ahead of you. when you're old you can just be like "fuck it, I'm tired of this. I'm gonna have some fun!"
    2) well, I'm gay so I don't have to worry about the second one hehehe, but even if I did, I would wait until I was financially extremely well off to have children
    3) this is true of women, not men. men are at their sexiest in their 30s and 40s and even longer if they take good care of themselves. several men who are 60+ are considered extrremely sexy by most women. also, the mental quickness part is a myth. the brain gets better as it gets older. at least until around 60 or so
    4) this is a loose correlation, but I suppose you're right. also, if you're older you more likely have the funds to properly treat such health conditions

    Being Elderly will Rock:

    1. Wraparound over-sunglasses.
    2. You don't look odd carrying a kick ass cane.
    3. You look dapper wearing one of those tweed driving caps.
    4. You can shout obsceneties at people, but in a cute grumpy elderly way.
    5. Forming drug habits will not affect your lifespan much.

    I say, enjoy what you've got, when you've got it.

    I like being young (19 as of now), but sometimes I feel like such a burden... I imagine the 20s are a pretty good age, though, except for the career issues.

    All those things actually sound brilliant and nothing to complain about.

    Although if I was going to live over again I'd complain less about or to older people and try to form an alliance with them.

    I frequently do, that is, if I can do so without them being condescending. I usually present myself as much more mature than I really am around older people and don't reveal my age, so I don't run into this as much as I used to
