Age And The Wapsi Fan

Post by jwhouk » Fri Jun 12, 2015 10:38 pm

Okay, this is where we get a feel for how old people are on this forum.

So - to make it simple, we're just going to give five-year groups of ages. Post your username, and which group you're in by letter. For example: Monica (E)
  • A1 - 2004 or later
  • A - 1999-2003
  • B - 1994-1998
  • C - 1989-1993
  • D - 1984-1988
  • E - 1979-1983
  • F - 1974-1978
  • G - 1969-1973
  • H - 1964-1968
  • I - 1959-1963
  • J - 1954-1958
  • K - 1949-1953
  • L - 1944-1948
  • M - 1939-1943
  • N - 1934-1938
  • O - 1929-1933
  • P - 1924-1928
  • Q - 1919-1923
  • R - 1918 and earlier

Not really sure, but I generally assume around G or thereabout.

Around 1990, doctors estimated my age as being the late teens. Now, they tend to guess that I'm in my mid-twenties. Extrapolating from that, I'd be. . .in the range of O or P.

L - though just barely. Two more months and it'd be K

I do seem to have a habit of killing curves...

I honestly expected a much younger turnout. It's hard to determine age by what people say. Even the old references and jokes could just indicate a coculture of people who know a lot about classic stuff.
Besides, it's a webcomic, and it's one about young adults... AND it's widely known for big boobs.

I mean, c'mon. What else would you expect?

At least none of us are likely to be in Group W.

Well, I don't know about littering, but more than a few of us are good at creating a nuisance. (Or being one.)

Woah. I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around that concept.
You probably know your birthdate and birthplace because other people who know it told you, and because of documents that have it written on them. What if you never had either of those sources to give you the information, though? Heck, I didn't even have a name until I decided on one in my late teens.

I do know my birthday, though: January 15th. And April 28th. And May 23rd. When I was first introduced to the wonders of Filling In Paperwork, I was extremely casual and just put down whatever date came to mind. By the time I realised that all of those forms were being kept permanently and forming the official picture of who I am, I already had multiple dates in the system.

The appeal of those is very egalitarian, crossing all boundaries of age, race, gender, and social station. A veritable symbol of the American Dream.
