Talking Old Enough To Know Better

I saw this elsewhere and thought it might be a fun one for the Off-Topic Discussion area of the forum. It might even spark some sharing of helpful information.

Here's how it goes—state your age (or approximate if you don't care to share) and at least one thing you should have learned or should understand by now, but don't. Add an explanation or don't.

Re: Old Enough To Know Better

I'll start.

I'm 38 and I don't understand electrical. On the surface, it seems simple enough (and I'm a reasonably intelligent guy), but once it comes to amps/volts/watts/ohms/gauges/grounds etc., I get turned easily around. I think if I could get a grip on all that, I could work miracles.

Other things I don't get include:

People's fascination with celebrities.

Why, if women know it takes them twice as long to get ready as men, they don't start getting ready twice as early.

Non-rhyming poetry.

Rap.

Backwards-installed toilet-paper rolls.

Re: Old Enough To Know Better

I'm 45 and I still think I can play Rugby like when I was 18.
I'll never understand women - but I have that in common with all heterosexual men. The men that do understand women stay away from them ;-)

45, in the same boat as amalclah.

I try to play hockey the same way I used to - can't and my body tells me so. Do I listen...nope.

Re: Old Enough To Know Better

I'm 46 and don't understand astrophysics very well. Of course I didn't major in that subject either. Hmm....

Re: Old Enough To Know Better

I'm 23 and single. From the info in this thread it sounds like I've gotten something right at least.
