View Full Version : How old are you REALLY?

A faintly interesting way of wasting a few minutes here. (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2313388/Age-test-drive-dotty-Online-quiz-reveals-old-REALLY-based-reaction-time.html) The test says I am aged around 33. Couldn't be much more wrong. Double that and add two.

Back to the old drawing board.

33. Perhaps it will tell everyone the same.

Seems a pointless test.

You'll probably find that the sponsors are actually involved in RSI treatment.....

What happens if you're 22 years old ? Perhaps they know that only 'older' people will attempt to see how young they are :hmm:

After a few minutes I got bored and wrapped it in. It probably thinks that I'm either an feckless youth or a G. O. M.

The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

* The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few

* If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network

* If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure
that Firefox is permitted to access the Web.

Life's too short.

Especially at my age. :(

You BASTARD.. I nearly went to a Daily Hate webpage there!

Thanks.. but no thanks!

Tells me I'm half the age I am.

So I doubled my age at the end to help them correct the results :)

Colour me stupid and probably dottled. I click their dampt red dots and nothing happens.

23rd Apr 2013, 20:27
Navigation to the webpage was cancelled

Plus sundry other "failure" messages. Never got to the test.

Most mornings I feel about 103 anyway :(

Not working for me either. Probably doesn't like my politics

23rd Apr 2013, 20:36
I clicked on the blue "Start" tab then waited ten minutes for something to happen. Either nothing did, or I've gone blind. :rolleyes:

Now it's worked and it's under-estimated my real age by 25 years. Yippee, I'm forever young! :ok:

"The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading."

Too fast for me!

Only one sure fire way of telling age, saw the top of the head off and count the growth rings,

23rd Apr 2013, 20:41
Frankly, Bern Ouilli, I was never wholly persuaded by your theorem anyway. Nothing personal, you understand.

23rd Apr 2013, 22:21
Rated me age 32, and that's after half a bottle of Shiraz and being up since 3am.
Too easy.:cool:

23rd Apr 2013, 22:30
What is more telling about my age is, the fact that I fell asleep waiting for the test to start/open.

Finally gave up.

One is reminded of the old adage that one is only as old as the woman you feel. :)

That test looks like too much like hard work. I'd
rather just shag some cute buxom chick instead.

So that'd put my mental age at what? 21 or 88?

24th Apr 2013, 03:26
Looks like I be the oldest with 38, but in all fairness I've been awake for a half hour and the coffee hasn't kicked in yet.........

Or "The caribou that eats young grass never gets old"

I tried it early yesterday morning and it knocked 25 years off my age.

Something seriously wrong with the test parameters as I am not at my best at that time of day. :p

Ended up having to use the scroll bar for portions of the test, clearly my laptop isn't up to the job. Anyway, it reckons I'm 30!!
Not exactly accurate but I'll take being a good few years younger in the eyes of the Harvard Geeks
