Sunny, I believe I'd rather be in your position--old mind with young body and spirit than in mine--young mind with old body and spirit!

The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.

I think I'll go take my nap now.

Perhaps the test isn't foolproof. It may have taken longer for some of the 60s slang to reach Calgary. In other words, you may be a girl of the 90's using pre-owned slang.

It's just a thought from this eternaly young 1954 vintage Agorite.

PS to Skinem: You are lucky that they let you take naps. I need to have a raging fever before I get to take a nap in my mmadhouse! :?

Sunny, your mind prolly wouldn't score so old if you didn't carry around quotes from 2500-year-old philosophers... :P

I scored in the 50's as well. I found that my vocabulary was a mix of eras, depending on the subject.

I agree with Bailey. My vocabulary was also highly influenced by that of my parents. And I'm sure that those expressions that scored from the 40's and 50's were ones that I 'inherited' from them.

I also think that living in a rural area will probably result in 'older' scores. City-slickers usually come up with the latest catch phrases.
