Default I'm really old!

"I don't see how 'old' people could do all that, ergo they cannot possibly be old." - Firefox7275

Our culture has a real habit of thinking that older people can't do anything. Meanwhile, there are any number of vital older people who are in fact out there doing all kinds of things. But all too many people, especially women, seem to internalize the idea that it's all over as far as getting into shape, or even having real fun for matter, after 50. Such beliefs become self-fulfilling prophecy, thus they do less and less and cave to cultural stereotypes. It's up to US to bust those stereotypes in the ways we see fit
Will be heading to Ecstatic Dance tonight - just 10 blocks away from me!
