That's not why. Most 20-somethings these days are tattoo'ed, toothpick-like, green/blue/pink haired, pierced all over, brainless, slutty-looking skanks, of very dubious sexual orientation.

Most of their mothers are normal. So, even if unattractive generally, they look mighty nice by comparison.

The bad news is that they're not mutilating themselves and acting brainless for YOU. They're doing it for the 20-year-old boys.

And I say "boys" advisedly .....

Seriously, any woman under 60 simply can't have a clue......the younger ones are only nice to look at.

And vegans have to work HARD to not be malnourished and just die...... one of the worst things you can do to your body.

Cheers,
Bill

When I was younger, a friend of mine quitdating youngergirls and began working on ones ten years older than us.

His philosophy:
"They are grateful to get a younger man, SOOO GRATEFUL , and they know more of what to do in bed, too."

Around here, specifically, the vast majority of the population is also overweight. So all the young women have what is called a "muffin top" (bulge above the pants waist); it's frosting on the ugly cake.

Old age is upon you when your greatest daily challenege is getting out of bed, almost everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work.

Church: A safe a place to sleep as any.

I won't have any "smart phone," because I fear any appliance that is smarter than me.
