The primary advantage to getting older is...

...that as the years go by, your guttersnipe friends get senile and forget to send you e-mails like this:

*  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *

A Cow, an Ant and an Auld Phart are debating who is the greatest of the three.

The Cow: "I give 50 liters of milk every day and that's why I am the greatest!!"

The Ant: "I work day and night, summer and winter, I can carry 52 times my own weight and that's why I am the greatest!!"

You bastard! You got me with that one! 
 
Who's the first person?
 
I don't get it.....

  And that's why I am the greatest.
 
And there are those of us who will never be *old*.

It's a five-way tie, right now -- nobody here, so relax.

I don't get it.....

Darn. I *knew* I'd have to explain it to somebody...

And there are those of us who will never be *old*. heh

No, there are just those of us who will never grow up...
 
"No, there are just those of us who will never grow up..."

It's not like that's a bad thing, yanno. 
And there *are* some of us who will never be 'old'.

 The Auld Phart: "I fought in 1, 2, 3, hmm - do all the little wars in between count, 4, then the last couple (multiple times), oh and let's not forget that one crappy time (well on second thought let's do forget), to keep you free to brag - that's why I'm the greatest.

Hey, remember that time when Jimmy and .... ."
 
Oh wait, I just recalled the Sister Mary Magdaline and Sister Olivia painful rule(r) about not bragging about one's self.

Oh well, my kids think I'm the greatest because I made it back home. 

However, I think Jimmy is the greatest;

because he didn't,
but he made sure I did.
 
Nope, I wasn't worried for myself, Bill. I'm too charming and adorable for anyone to threaten me with strangling.

Er, what was the question?

Sly, Pilots can never grow up. If they did, they would acquire wisdom and would realize just how stupid what they do for a living is and never fly again. Then, where would the airlines and military be?
 
Brahahah hehe hehe hiccup brahahaha...

Thanks...I just drove 2 and a half hours to get home in time to do a power point pres for a sales meeting tomorrow. I needed a good laugh.
 
Quartermaster, I thought that was Airborne?  Cuz, if anything is the epitome of a willing suspension of wisdom, it's when someone decides to jump out of a perfectly good airplane.

"Soldiers are slow to grow up." - Captain Sir Basil Liddell-Hart. 

That goes double for Aviators, and triple for us excessively-earnest socially awkward types.

At a chronological age of dang near 60,  I think I might finally be approaching an emotional and social age of, oh, say, 15.
 
Growing old is mandatory. Growing UP is optional. I like options.
