Old age
Who here is scared of getting old? From what age do you actually fall in the "old category"?
I'm terrified of old age, getting wrinkles, arthritis and all that. Sigh, I love being young...

To most people, OLD is about 10 years older than whatever their age may be. I must admit that the arthritis is no fun at all. But wrinkles ? Well, I'm proud of thsoe --- I earned them.
And as for mental age, I've come across some senile guys in their 20's
