What is our average age?
« on: January 13, 2008, 05:09:39 PM »
We have a discussion going on in the sawmill board called LINK>> age of sawmillers

I thought I would start a poll where we could get an idea. Before the results even start coming in, I'm betting it is in the mid 40's :)

Don't most members fill out the age data on their profile?  Couldn't you just pull that and get the results?   smiley_headscratch

Some do, some don't.  This is totally anonymous this way. Folks that dont want to tell us how old they are can participate without having it hung on their profile. It lets us find an approximate average and maybe have a little fun as well.  I suppose I could dig into the database and get the average of the listed ages, but, I dont wanna. ;D ;)

I've been pretty sure for a long time now that it is in the early to mid 50's, but you'll only know based on those that actually complete the poll.
We have tons of folks that won't even see it that can easily throw the average off.

I doubt it will be off much. The odds are an equal number of older people will miss it to younger people. To be off, you would have to believe that one age group or another is more apt to miss the poll. I'm not brave enough to go there. ;)

Asking for ages is like asking the farmer what his yield was this fall.  :D :D :D

Are we supposed to answer with:

1. Feel like age
2. Act like age
3. Chronological age
4. Pretend age
 
Those are all different for me and some change daily.

Those poll  figures above, described by some as a perfect Bell Curve, remind me of Alfred Hitchock's profile.  :D

That's funny Tom.  ;D :D

One of the things I always looked for in his movies was he himself walking across a scene. Unless you already saw the movie, you never knew where he would appear. Sometimes even if you saw it, you were still looking the next time you watched it. ;D

I'm still looking for some of his cameo's.  I was told that they can appear anywhere in the film.  I always looked for it in the beginning.

Of the few films I have on DVD he was on fairly early on.

In "North By Northwest", he climbs onto the bus just after the credits. In Vertigo, he crosses the street after the first office scene carrying a black object.

Is 'above' up or down the page? :D :D


I was taught 'North' was up on the map and 'South' was down.  :P
