As of January 30, I'm 16 years old.

Hopefully we will see a decrease in legal troubles due to increased interest in home chemistry...

Yes, that would be great. We need to try and get the word out about amateur chemistry. The more people who get interested in it, especially younger people, the better chance it has of becoming more accepted and respected in society.
Hopefully projects like Rador Labs will help with that. It will probably be a generation or two at the least, but I think it will happen.

no clue, but I am starting to feel a bit old, the largest segment of members was born right about when I graduated high school. now I realize thats not much in the grand scheme of things, but its probably the first time I have noticed my self in a situation like that. I'm sure it won't be the last time.

only 17 members in my age group, and its a whole decade, there are 90 in the 90's!!! if you add both 90-94 and 95-99

Rapopart’s Rules for critical commentary:

1. Attempt to re-express your target’s position so clearly, vividly and fairly that your target says: “Thanks, I wish I’d thought of putting it that way.”
2. List any points of agreement (especially if they are not matters of general or widespread agreement).
3. Mention anything you have learned from your target.
4. Only then are you permitted to say so much as a word of rebuttal or criticism.

Anatol Rapoport was a Russian-born American mathematical psychologist (1911-2007).

Currently 27, born 1987. Surprised to see that my age group is the second largest. I wonder how many are actually still active, though.

Most forums seem to have an active group, and those that come, and go like the tides.

I prefer the active group forums. There is always something new to learn.

You're a year younger than my daughter Crowfjord. I still call her Baby Girl. Man life is strange.

Just to make sure... will someone change the categories in the poll, in a few years' time? Some users might have become inactive by then.

I am surprised that in my range 1970-1979 there are less people than in 1960 - 1969 and 1980-1989 groups. Is it something with demography?

For me, its 2004. I predict that in the next few years, the numbers from my demographic will increase significantly.

This oldie has gained new traction I see.

I was somewhat of a kewl during my first iteration, as a teenager in the '70's. Could buy everything for black powder at the Rexall Drug. And they KNEW we were gonna fool around with it.

Second iteration, I was 50, kids grown wife four states away (usually its far enough) and I kept running into search results from this forum. Signed up, got a few pieces of gear and while I'm not super serious I haven't gotten bored yet either. Well, serious enough to have a hotplate/stirrer, vacuum pump etc and I've collected up some "exotic" reagents along the way. I've got some TEMPO, TBAB, borohydride and a few others squirreled away. A good majority of which I got/bought/swapped with members here. I can proudly say I have NEVER had a "bad" deal from a member of this forum.

You youngsters WILL, a lot of you, rotate out. Thats natural. Spouses, kids, bills, etc.

Us old folks will be here when the bug bites again!!

Oh, and the year of my birth is 1963.
