In my 40s, still think I'm in my 20s (former target dating audience) 'cos that is when I moved to Asia....but feel like i'm in my 30s TBH.

Early 60's, but feel between 18 and 23 now and again when the opportunity arises, or is that rises 😉

Well, I just see a huge gulf in state of my friends after having kids...my g/f said all her uni friends look wasted after having kids to paraphrase her ..but if that's your truth then that is your truth....I'm talking about how they look vs they may feel....

If I would do a poll, it would be 1.  Over 90.   2.  I forget if I voted.   3.  What is this vote about?  4.  Is there free beer.   5. Under 90 (haha, joking, I'm over 90)

I am under the impression lots of this forum's users are boomers/pensioners, which at least partially explains my divergences of opinion with them (I am in my early 40's). They lived their most productive years in times of prosperity and were able to accumulate wealth and succeed in ways which are impossible nowadays.

This is a macro-level observation and nobody should take it personally. My own dad (who falls into the category described above) agrees with me and says he could not have done half the things he did if he was my age.

I worked in the mining industry from 1966 to 1972. Bought a house back in my home state in 1970, had the mortgage paid off in 18 months. Actually, I am pre-boomer.

 

You're right. However, we are not to blame for subsequent generations missing out. You can lay that at the feet of politicians who exported jobs overseas, and now have supply chains stuffed up so badly Australians have to wait 6 - 12 months to take delivery of most new vehicles. Or insane policies such as negative gearing which inflate the housing market to be unaffordable.

 

The answer is in your hands, vote them out. Although what you vote in may be just as bad, if not worse.
