EXACTLY my experience: some days, I’m full of energy and work hard the whole day through......other days, I make it through coffee, and go back to bed.
Oh so true to my reality. Nice thing though, growing and enjoying the plant....the other stuff is like...don't sweat the small stuff. ;o)

One of the biggest arguments against recreational drug use was their use for escapism and not dealing with reality. Well isn't the popularity of fantasy more like that?

While I'm on my bitching soapbox, I have never understood energy drinks. SO hypocritical. How can they malign weed, a beneficial plant, while approving legalized speed that has definite health problems?

Yup, I'm finally that old fuck I used to laugh at.
With all due respect, sir.. I disagree with not getting or disliking popular stuff being an indicator that you're getting old. For me a good indicator of getting old is something like dislocating a shoulder when you're just trying to get out of bed, or when you start losing hair on your head and at the same time start growing hair on your back, ears, nose and pretty much everywhere you're not supposed to.. Well, at least not according to modern day standards on looks and thing. Or when you need a magnifying glass to read the fine print on a box of cereal and stuff like that.

You can be old and not like or get popular stuff, but you don't have to. I was something like 12 years old when I heard hair metal for the first time in the 80's, didn't get it, didn't like it, but it was popular. Some might say a 12 year old is too young to get stuff like Mötley Crue.. And yea, ok, I can see that happening in some cases. Like blue cheese, didn't like it when I was a kid, these days I'm cool with blue cheese. But 25-30 years later Mötley Crue still sounds like someone is taking a shit in my ear.

In the 90's as a young man I didn't get the popularity of Spice Girls, fanny packs, Riverdance, big fake bowling ball looking silicone tits and stuff like that.

Around the year 2000 Will Smith and Jennifer Lopez were popular as shit, both are attractive people. Will Smith is a charismatic dude and Jennifer has a big round butt as an added bonus, and they're both decent actors from what I've seen. But they were hugely popular and everywhere when it comes to entertainment. Will Smith made his happy rap stuff and danced in his videos. Jennifer Lopez did mediocre dance pop stuff and danced wackish in her music vids, both sucked ass, but people loved that crap. I didn't see the appeal those things supposedly had.

So you don't like Game of Thrones, fine, it's not for everyone.
Haven't seen any of the Avengers movies, but I know they are superhero action flicks based on comic books, so if you go see a movie like that and expect it to be like 'Casablanca' or sumtin..
Yea, most likely you're in for a disappointment.

Then there's stuff like reality TV, which is absolute crap. Lowest form of entertainment if you ask me. I used to think stuff like Jerry Springer with episodes like "My 12 year old daughter is outta control, pregnant, running with gangs and doing drugs" was the lowest you can go. But this reality tv shit makes Jerry look pretty good.

Which bring me to my final point in not getting stuff or disliking popular whatever. Sometimes the majority of people are the ones who don't get it and the few dudes who think they don't get it actually do.. Because sometimes shit is just shit, and there's nothing else to it. So yea, you might be getting old. Or maybe some stuff is just crap.... Maybe a bit of both.

When you lecture the telephone scammers, asking them if their mother knows what they do for a living.

And the first 75-120 steps each day are stiff-legged, 'cause the knees simply won't bend without making noises that wake the dogs.

And you master the phrase, "Hey, can you get that for me?"

Or carrying a quarter of the load once carried results in relatively extreme fatigue.

Or cutting coupons is considered a responsible use of time.

And 21-year old chicks look like 8th-graders, thus forfeiting their sex-appeal.

And yes, reality television sucks big time, and is probably solid evidence that we've finally completed our swim upstream as a species.

Go to a clinic that specializes in hormone replacement therapy. Pay 100$ or so to get your blood drawn and get a followup a week later to review your results. Listen to the doctor explain how hormones run your organs, your brain, and how lack of hormonal balance ruins your life. Get your levels up to a healthy 25 year old and your life will immediately change for the better in every way. Guaranteed.
Bonus tip: If you have a wife or partner get them to go also.

I like GOT but the rest is right on mostly. Having two petite girls/women kill the main monsters in last episode was kinda iffy but this is 2919 so you gotta expect stuff like that from the 'woke' writers.

Was gonna get the 'old man yells at clouds' pic but that is covered.

When I smoke C99 or similar I sure do not feel so old.

I'm late 50's, best shape of my life from walking 15+ miles a day (barring the almost imperceptible Parkinson's) & have a calmness and perspective I'd never have appreciated as a angry young man. My psych problems almost under control, family good. Life as an older man gets better for me.

I want thank everybody for all the karma and responses. I thought that yelling at kids one was hilarious. But you must understand. Pretty much everything I say or do is tongue in cheek. I am a terrible cynic. My pain is the real indicator to me my bod is getting old. Screw that other shit.

The only other thing I wanted to add is about a post a while back where a guy said his balls wouldn't droop because he always wears tighty whiteys. Sorry, but it doesn't work that way.

We used to have this Jack Russel who was a real bitch. Would never listen, shit anywhere and whenever she wanted. Always did things she knew was wrong, but did them anyway. One morning, I get up in the dark and go in the kitchen to make coffee. I always have liked getting up way early. Even as a kid. So that morning I step in the kitchen barefoot into a pile of dogshit, and slide, falling on my ass. Later, I was relaying that story to my Dad saying, "You just haven't lived until you step in a pile of dogshit, barefoot, first thing in the morning, slide and fall on your ass. His response was, "No, you just haven't lived until you sit on the toilet and your balls dip in the water.". Thing here is, my Dad wore tighty whiteys his whole life.


So, that's a true story. But again, tongue in cheek. Your mileage may vary.

Go to a clinic that specializes in hormone replacement therapy and of course they will recommend testosterone for you....it's a business and that's how they pay the rent, advertising and their Porsche payments.

The alternative to a "magic" pill or needle is daily light exercise, fresh unprocessed food, sunshine, keeping slim, exercising your brain, lowering stress etc etc and slowly but surely life will be a good as it can be.

here's some facts from doctors who are not pushing testosterone
