But you haven't factored into the Equation where people, through luck of Mother Nature, could pass for somewhat rather younger than their actual calendar years. In fact one prime example is you is it not?

I look older than my actual chronological age of 53. I believe I have posted enough pictures over the years to make that point abundantly clear. Sometimes there are advantages to looking older. I am happy to embrace these advantages, most of the time.



So by your calculations if a guy is 72 but looks 66, that makes them able to date someone no younger than 40?

No. You cannot change "the formula". Looks are not factored into "the formula" because people are often self-deluded into thinking that they look younger than they actually do. "The formula" is based purely on chronological age. A 72 year old gentleman may date a person age 43 and up. Looks have absolutely nothing to do with it.



But what about for the younger person in this relationship? So women can date a guy that is no more than double their age -14, yes? Example guy 66, woman 40. But then at true ages that gives a woman in her genuine late 40's carte blanche to date a guy no older than real age of 84?

"The formula", as I've stated it, calculates the lower range of dating acceptability; but yes, the math works for the younger person in the relationship to double his or her age and then subtract 14.

So Chris, you are correct. A woman age 49 would not be in a 90 year old man's "formula". So if you are thinking about dating one of your nurses or one of your adult daycare providers, I'm sorry Chris, but she is probably not in your formula!!!

She's probably too young for the old and wild :-))

Hmmmmmm... I think that I will take Chris' quote to be an opportunity to remind all of the lusty old livers here that there is a "formula" of social appropriateness for dating:

Half your age + 7

If you are, say, 60 years old - half your age is 30 + 7 = 37. You may date people age 37 years and older and it will be considered socially acceptable.

If you are, say, 70 years old - half your age is 35 + 7 = 42. You may date people age 42 and older and it will be considered socially acceptable.

That lovely young lady, and presumably her sister, do not appear to fall within anyone's formula here!!!

Hope that your life is as fine as the pictures seem to indicate.

No life is free of pain. I buried my mother last year. Life is an interesting mix of happiness and sadness, but at the beginning of a new year it is best, I think, to focus on the happy moments.

Thank you, everyone, for the kind wishes.

Here's to a GREAT 2017 for us all!!!

Darn, am I too late for a mimosa? Rats. Guess I'll have to mix my own.



Angela's recipe for the BEST mimosas ever, just in time for Sunday brunch tomorrow!

1. In the bottom of a champagne flute, put about a tablespoon of Grand Marnier

2. Fill glass half way with freshly squeezed mandarin juice

(Mandarin juice is darker, richer and more flavorful than navel orange juice. Citrus is in season now in the northern hemisphere, so if you live in this hemisphere there are probably fresh mandarins in a market near you.)

3. Top off glass with sparkling wine.

Enjoy!

Hello Friends,

It has become an enjoyable January tradition for me to review photos we took last year and then share a few of them with you,
along with snippets of advice from various members of the Korpela household.


Eric advises that you beware of horny ladies with big brown eyes.





Squirrelie responds, "Aw nuts! I can't believe Eric just said that!!!"





"Funcle" Eric and Auntie Angela suggest that you ham it up a little with your family's biggest Drama Queen.





Riddler, Penguin and Joker suggest you pick a theme and go with it.
Gotham City is in da house... well, at least on the back porch.





For lovers of puns everywhere, I give you "Riddler On The Roof"
(Cat On A Hot Tin Roof would also be an acceptable caption...)





Yosemite in autumn - if you live near someplace pretty, go visit it.





Happy New Year, From Our Home To Yours!

Mark, you accidentally posted twice in this thread. I believe you owe everyone a round of drinks at Rocky's.

Hello Friends,

It is so nice to read the supportive and encouraging posts here, as Vic deals with new medical issues. I have always found the seti community to be so lovely and supportive.

This is, however, a thread in Number Crunching, so technically we should all be staying (more or less) to technical issues.

Vic has been posting in the Cafe about his medical issues and I would like to encourage people to post their well wishes there, so that this thread will wind its way back towards the interesting technical topic of computer builds.

I am not going to hide or move any posts at this time. I'm just hoping that, going forward, this thread will trend towards being more technical in nature, as is typical of Number Crunching threads.
