I checked my old New Strongs to scoff at erk to scorn him, but he's right insofar as there's no "score" entry.

A bit of scorn is warranted for my not thinking of looking for "threescore" as a single word.

Stumbled across "scoff" and "scorn" while looking for "score".

83 is sorta old. Take it from one who knows firsthand.

I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked. I used to think of you as a man of venerable years, and now I discover that you're younger than my father.
(Dad just got his first computer, by the way. We haven't yet told him about Usenet.)

That's okay. I've always been younger than *my* father, too.

Belated "Happy Birthday" from me as well.

Thank you, Evan.
Same thing once you've become my age, although a youngster ... but for all practical purposes we're the same age now.

That's an interesting observation.

Not a new one, though.
I think my dad (who's about two years older than you) is still a bit older than I am, but ... sorts a couple of years ago when I realized that when my dad was my age, I was in college.)

What I most often see is how people between the ages of, say, 55 and
75 no longer pay much attention to the age differences amongthemselves. When I was 20, a 40-year-old would be of an entirely different generation and, probably, not someone I could easily relate to. Those distinctions fade as we get older.
It's truly astonishing how much younger (and, in about half the cases, sexier) 40-year-olds are now than they were twenty years ago.

Very true. Thankfully, the 20-year-olds remain as sexy-looking as ever. Our horizons expand. Women's too, but sadly for them, somewhat less so. A woman of 40 can attract late 20s and upwards, whereas it is not at all unusual for 17s on up to be attracted to a man of 40. Why men have always been the favoured sex I don't know, but I do know life isn't fair.

My observation now is that people from about 25 upwards pay very little attention to age, provided they all share interests. I'd say this has been happening increasingly over the past 20 years or so, at least among the people I know.
(Similarly, groups don't automatically divide by sex as they used to do 20 or 30 years ago when it was assumed that men and women had very few interests in common. At least, groups younger than about 70.)
