That isn't unusual at your age. I went for a year telling everyone I was 38. Then one day my wife corrected me to 37. Once you hit your 50s it is very easy to recall your age. Enjoy your confusion Mike!

I'm old enough that when someone asks my age, I have to think for a minute to know the answer, even resorting to doing the math.

27 here. What would you old geezers say to yourselves If you could go back to your 27th birth day?

Floss. No joke, I'm seeing the periodontist this week. To sum it up, dental health is a one way street. The best you can do is hold the line. If you smoke you are an idiot. (my biggest regret, glad I stopped) Avoid sugar and processed food.

I can't think of a thing I've worried about that was worth it.

Marry well. I'm in Macedonia (and been to a bunch of other places) as a result of falling for an adventurous woman.

I look at life like a magazine subscription. At some point they stop coming, but everyone gets 12 issues a year. Read each one well, and realize everyone including you gets 365 days at each age.

Go to a national park of your choice, e.g. The Grand Canyon, and ponder that your several decades of life is barely a fart in the breeze in the greater context. Still, it is your life, make the most of it.

I recall a Cramer episode (before I wised up and learned to skip his show) where he said in an answer to the usual question "what age to get started in trading?" , to start as early as possible so one could get experience early and be able to "work off the losses" incurred from a possible outcome of failed trading, in one's later years. Makes me wonder if that answer was just to dupe more people into watching "Fast Money" and investing and trading in the worst ways of the losing herd, i.e. following the lagging news commentary and ceo talk on CNBC.

Yes, the hygienist told me which I thought was funny (and I have no idea of the dental truth), she didn't care what dentists say (probably because the dentist in the office made a lot more than her haha), that if one used floss "correctly" i.e. floss a bit under the gums of each tooth one would never have to worry about tooth decay as she thought buildup under the gums was the real reason for it.

Thanks for the free advice! I need to go buy some floss!
