So I become one of those grumpy old farts (turning 30) tomorrow - telling kids to get off my lawn and reminiscing about how things were better "Back in my day..."

So to commiserate I'm giving away at least one... maybe 2 Groupee's Be Mine 8 bundles ($5 level)

Post if you're in... will close this whenever I feel like it

NOW GET OFF MY LAWN~!

Sorry Grumpy old fart moved to 40, 30 is the new 20 we still have the health and stamina for fun but we also have the money to afford it without being kicked out of our homes :P
Get ON my lawn! Wrong lawn, wrong lawn, I need an adult!

I'm in, thanks for the giveaway.
I'm in old man, hope you enjoy your pipe and slippers ;)
Not in, but have a happy birthday!

Haha, I always liked that one. I know a better version of it however. There was this popular magazine in Sweden about a mother and her two teenagers. Her grandpa once says "Back in my days things were better... (silence) Because then we could fantasize about a better future."

Regarding the age of 30 as a breaking point of becoming old is rather demeaning towards people older than let's say 50 considering the average life expectancy is around the age of 68 (according to wikipedia 2010), it has always bothered me in a very minor way that is. Of course I've no personal experience being 30 rendering my knowledge of the matter rather moot (still 23). :P

And happy birthday! (not in the giveaway, just wanted to comment)

Not in, but 30 is nothing. By the time I hit 30 I'd already had cataracts. Twice!

Enjoy the future, and Happy Birthday! +1
Happy Birthday! (I'm little bit older :p)
Count me in and thanks.
30? Pfft, I got kidney stones older than you. Damn kids these days...

Anyway, count me in for the giveaway. Oh, and happy birthday. +1
Happy birthday.

30 isn't too bad, don't sweat it. Also, if you haven't already you should consider writing a Will.

For fun do what I did when I was young(er) and put that you want to be buried and on your tombstone "Do not walk on the grass" I later found out that that will would not be legally binding :-( I was only 12 ish
I'm about to turn 26 and I feel your pain. Happy birthday, Bigs! :)
Thanks for the giveaway, not in.
Happy birthday, Bigs!

(I'm in, thanks!)
Happy Birthday.

I'm turning 40 this year...
Happy birthday!
And I'm in, I kind of have to be since I'm ancient as well.
I always like asking myself "Is this where you thought you'd be at this age?" and then going into a fetal position and sucking my thumb.
Happy birthday Bigs ! :-) I'm 30 too, not a big deal, take it easy :-)
Count me in, but if I win can you please send the prize to adambiser ?
