Cause I feel old...  
I often feel old when I get sunk into... enveloped... completely and utterly and obsessivley consumed by cartoons... admitedly, FMA is the first to have sunk it's claws in deeper than any other has before, including my first-love ReBoot!

So... I know I'm not alone. But I AM curious, so let's have an age call. And since height is such an issue with FMA, let's hear from all the fellow shorties! How tall are you?


1/4" under 5' last I was measured

Come on, I know there has to be some old fogies out there... I know the majority will probobly be in their teens though. :)

Sat, July 1st EDIT: so far I've counted and this what we have as of now (I'll change the numbers as they come in):
45 of us are between the ages of 12 and 19 (the youngest to reply was 12... i mean 11 now)
45 of us fall between the ages of 20 and 68 (the oldest to "reply" was a girl saying her grandfather is into FMA).
32 of us are in the 20's. 6 in the 30's. 4 in the 40's. 2 in the 50's and 1 60yo.

wow. we do have a large range of ages and most of us are teens or 20somethings.

You are in no way old; I could be your mother (granted if I had started early). I'm 43.

We could be siblings! 23 and 5'3. Although, what really makes me feel old is when I'm drooling over the bishies only to be reminded that said bishie is 14/15. So unfair...

Yeah, all I can think is "jailbait" when I see stuff, so then I go mosey on over to the movie and enjoy it, seeing as Ed is 18 in it, and, technically, Al is 17. :p I'm still dirty.

But, yeah. If I could have had the insight or known half as much as anime heros do at 15, I would be sitting on a much more expensive leather chair than this one (plus, it wouldn't creak enough to wake the dead), and my computer monitor would be flatscreen instead of too heavy for me to lift unless I'm having a good day. ... And I'd have people rubbing my feet for me.

I'm about your age and about your height... but I bet you we're no where near "old" on this comm, there's lotsa 30 and 40-somes around here and to me that's not even old. Ya gotta be older than my mom to seem old to me :P

17 at 4 and 3/4 inches. If I don't grow by next year, I'm legally considered a short person.
Cube no Miko: fluffycube_no_miko on June 27th, 2006 11:57 pm (UTC)
That's okay cause I'm 3 feet 6 inches.

Ed would love to hang with me :D

As for age, I'm 40.

I sometimes feel old, myself, but not on this comm. It's mostly my friends I feel old around, seeing as how I'm really the only one with such interests. Telling them that it's not a 'little kids' cartoon doesn't help. Even though there's cussing (to an extent) and loads and loads of blood and death everywhere, they still think 'animated = cartoon = little kid mentality'. Whatever... they should read my fan fics if they think I have a little kid mentality...

I haven't grown since I was 12 or something, but apparently, I'm inching up like.. 1cm per year. XD
Good for me. :D
