Title: HAF Age Distribution Census
Post by: Recusant on July 21, 2016, 06:45:41 AM
I'm sure that there will be some dissatisfaction with how this poll is laid out. A 36 year old may not like the idea of being lumped in with 40 year olds, for instance. Suggestions for improving it will be considered. I'm not telling whether I voted already or not . ;)

I just noticed one problem with the poll, there are two options for 30 (and 20, 40, 50...). :P I would have liked to have chosen the 30 grouped with the late twenties but now I'm officially in my thirties, so...

Likewise, there are two options for every mid decade.

Maybe edit it so that it's

10-14
15-19
20-24

I thought the ambiguity was a feature, not a bug.  :)

I'm willing to change it if people want the ambiguity removed.

Why didn't you leave the old one alone and have a new one called Census 2018 ?.  Maybe some one would have rememberd the year of the 1st one and then you are creating an intereasting record.  I don't think  it is usual to just destroy a census.  Oh well, never mind, I suppose.

The reason I did it was to get some engagement from the membership. If engagement continues to fall like it is then the forum will have to shut up shop in a couple of years and the demographic of the membership will be meaningless.

We're putting more rock down to cover our parkway. The neighbor came over and offered up about 4 wheelbarrows' worth of rocks and flagstone. I got two of them across the street, but I'm waiting for one of my sons to get home from work to move the rest. She wants them gone, and doesn't want any money. I'll do something nice, though. It's about $200 worth of rocks. I'm getting too old (68) for that sort of heavy lifting. I used to be able to do it all day long. I'm sitting here with a back brace on waiting for the naproxen to kick in so I can go get a shower.

I'll weigh in and say that, yes a lot of people watch sitcoms. Not sure what is "normal" with that, but I quit watching that shit decades ago. I got married in '81, and my bride had to ask her parents for an old B&W TV that they had in their attic, because I wouldn't buy a new TV. We weren't "poor" even though I was the only wage earner at the time. TV programming is shit, as far as I am concerned, and has been so for 50 years, by my estimate. There is, of course, good programming, but from the shit I see, most of it is not. I believe that there was a documentary called "The Stupefaction of America" that described the problem. Maybe it was a written document, idunno, and can't be bothered to go look...TV is mostly shit.

cease thiz untoward levity

panyhose are well known tools to keep your leg circulation going. the arteries and gravity force the blood down there and the pantyhose comprezz the veins enough that their elazticity is restricted and normal  skeletal movement pumps blood back up rather than just inflating the vein.

if you all can be nice ill model some of my own for you.  i dont shave my legs tho

Both my mother and sister have a rather serious case of varicose veins but refuse to wear a pantyhose despite the doctor's recommendation. ::) My sister has had that problem since she hit puberty and both have undergone a number of operations to improve blood circulation in their legs. Why not just wear the pantyhose? Is it really that uncomfortable?
