How Old Do You Act?

You are :


You act like you are 60 yrs old! You go to bed early and hate loud music.
You can probably be seen eating prunes, watching the news, or knitting.

Knitting is right, but I think the rest of this is wrong or at least misleading. I don't like loud music because it hurts my ears. I don't go to bed early (how it got that idea I don't know, because it's a great night if I'm in bed by 11:00 and I'm often up until 1:00 (or 3:00 on weekends). I'm mostly a vegetarian, which is why I had to pick prunes. I'm not supposed to eat candy or potato chips (diabetic, don't you know) and I'm not a great fan of steak. Cheeseburgers, though -- that I would have picked. Cheeseburgers were the one thing I craved during my two years as a vegetarian and were what ultimately seduced me away from a meatless life. Also, I hardly ever watch the news: maybe once or twice a month, and never more than the first five or ten minutes of the local broadcast.

Well, apparently I act like a 16year old, loving to party and talk on the phone (which is odd, because I very definitely didn't tick either of those boxes!)

I'm evidently 8, probably based on a fondness for pancakes and sweets, and playing outside.

Overall it is pretty terrible, though: there was no option for driving a rusted out pickup, and their selection of possible music types to like or TV shows to watch was pathetic.

Memes are silly little polls that have very limited choices, so are "rigged" and almost never give accurate answers unless you can be easily pigeonholed. So what it really means is that your age cannot be determined, but the meme is rigged to imply that anyone who picks prunes must be old and useless.

Just, y'know, fuck 'em.

Pretty crappy questions on that poll. I didn't even finish it after I got to the 'what do you watch on TV' question.

You're as young as you feel, isn't that what they say? On that basis, I'm feeling around 60 today myself, lol...

The quiz declared me 35, but made being 35 sound like a bad thing (or at least really, really boring).
