Male killerwhales become sexually active at age 15. Females at age age. After counting the rings on their teeth its estimated they live to the age of 34.

Are whale year's the same as human years? i.e. 1 human year to 7 dog years.

not sure though I'd think it's just like human years.... some orcas live quite long so I'd imagine it's not like the human/dog ratio... :)

Oh, that's the easy one. You'll suddenly realise that you're past being 25 and that you have a sudden urge to buy a motorcycle, a two seater sportscar and get a mistress......


Good one Mr Fjeld! Something to look forward to indeed!

I'm currently 34 and looking forward to my 35th birthday, which I plan to celebrate with a tasting party.

Am also looking forward to my 50th birthday, which I will celebrate by opening a certain 97pt Ardbeg I have stashed away. If I don't sell it and buy a motorcycle for the profit, that is. :lol:

I'm almost 44 - Canadian - which until a few years ago would have been a mere 28 U.S. but lately has rebounded to almost 38 U.S. - I think I'll revert to Euros to stay young... :wink:

Turned 50 last month... had a wee party to celebrate...
and opened some bottles that I've been too mean to open before;

SMWS Glenfarclas 39yo
SMWS Cragganmore 28yo
Springbank 25yo
Springbank 21yo
Highland Park 25yo
Ardbeg 1977

This cunning plan meant that turning 50 was much less traumatic than turning 40 - I can recommend it to anyone in the same situation!

Not quite as old as the oldest whisky I ever tasted - a 1946 Macallan.
Old enough to remember Cliff Richard and the Shadows, black and white telly, and the little motif that came on your screen when TV shut down, which prompted Jimi Hendrix to write: "After all the jacks are in their boxes, and the clowns have all gone to bed..."

Ah sod it! Enough of riddles already! 56...

"the point is to ENJOY this life, it's very short indeed."

...and does anyone else notice that the older you get , the faster it goes?

Interesting RB: I remember a time before black and white TV's ... then we got one, which lead to; Chez Helen; Howdy Doody; Ed Sullivan; Don Messers' Jubilee; Tommy Hunter; The Gary Moore Show; Red Skelton; Bonanza; and the weird CBC Indianhead logo that came on in early morning and between program gaps. I guess things weren't so different across the pond in the 50's.

Just to veer off on the nostalgia trail.

RB: what about Lonnie Donnagan and Tony Hancock.
One of the first records in my collection was Does your Chewing Gum lose It's flavour on the bedpost overnite. :o

Yeah, with Howard the Turtle and just look who Allan Hammel married... Suzanne Sommers! It's not so bad being in the 50s with the memories we have. Eh?
On a side note, one of my oldest records is a 45 of "Purple People Eater"

I'm not even 50 yet and my oldest album I still own is an original pressing of Miles Davis - Birth Of The Cool.
Loved Lonnie Donnagan with The Shakin' Pyramids, still have that on vinyl too! :mrgreen:

I am younger than Elagabalus (less than 81) but older than Mr. T (more than 52). Is it really true you are 81, Mr. E? And when did you start your love of single malt, may I ask?

I am 39 in hexadecimal. :)

And I still have some of my original big 78's of Will Star.

Mine too! Along with "Move It" by cliff richrd.

But i still have an original 45 of "Hey Joe" by jimi Hendrix.

Move over Hank Marvin!

I remember the day Jimi was on top of The Plops for the 2nd time. First time was LIVE with Hey Joe, where he totally upset the schedule by doing a super long solo pulling out all the stops - teeth, the lot.

Jimi was therefore solely responsible for miming on TOTP!!

So thy had people sing to a backtrack. Cue Cathy Mcgowan introducing "...Th efab Jimi hendrix with his new smash, Purple haze!"

cut to jimi looking really miserable, obviously detests having to mime the guitar.

...and then the opening bars of "simon smith and his amazing dancing bear" by the alan price set starts playing!

Hendrix moves to the mike:

"Ah, shucks! I don't know the words to this one!"

those were the daze, eh!
