In a very unscientific way I came up with a formula why a 21 year old can do three times as much work as I can in the same time. Pounds X Age = the Time it takes for a person to perform physical work.

Am I on to something? :rolleyes:

I'd love it to be three times!!!

@ 21 my pounds time age number was 3675
Multiply that times 3 = 11025

But my current pounds times age figure is - - - more like 5 times what my 21 year old figure was ;).
62* 282 = 17484

I'm with you. I have always called it my declining age/weight/strength ratio.

Youre absolutely right. So tell your son to finish the stonework for you, or youll take back that beautiful guitar! Youve got enough to do just figuring how to ship your tools to the new house!

And here I am feeling fat for gaining 20 pounds in the 40 years since I was 21.

Well, it's common knowledge to most folks (although I must admit to 7 years of high school) that GRAVITY gets stronger as we age! AND depending on where one lives the effects of said gravity can be geometrically progressive! So there.

Plus the fact (that I'm sure everybody knows) is that experience weighs more... :cool:

They(?) say we gain an extra pound for every year over 20 years of age. I am 67 and have to admit that's close to the truth.
I weighed 185 at twenty and 235 now, but before you jump all over me, I am trying to lose some weight again. At one time the weight was 267, pounds that is.
