How old are you now?

Recently, out of curiosity, I clicked on an ad in GMail which brought me to the "RealAge" calculator. Now, this RealAge calculator thingy is clearly designed for older people, worried about their age. I, however, am not particularly worried about my age. But I figured it would be amusing to try it out and see what it gave me. After filling out a lengthy survey (and telling them about 10 times that, NO, I don't want to get emails from them about how to improve my health) I got the final result! I am . . . 15.8 years old!
While gaining 7.8 years is exciting and all, being 15.8 isn't. At least I can shave now.


  1. Hey. We here at Lottajunk Pharmaceuticals&trade would like to tell you how you could take 10, 20 or 30 years off that 15.8. How, you may ask. The answer is our Fullbody&trade moisturizing spay with shark liver extract. Made from only the finest illegally harvested, endangered sharks, Fullbody&trade contains patented antioxidants, vitamin E, and advanced anti-wrinkle agents to give you real result fast! Studies have shown time and again that Fullbody&trade really works! Don't trust the prescription stuff the doctors give you. They could be dangerous and have nasty side effects. But Fullbody&trade is all natural, so it's safe and effective.

    Supplies are low, so call now. And when we say low, we mean low. There are maybe 100 sharks left in the wild. After that we'll have to get them from the Brooklyn Aquarium. And that cost extra, so call now to lock in your low price.

  2. Hey lottajunk, I would be careful about that "spay" business.

  3. I'll bet if your young enough theyle send you right back into the womb.
