I will be pro for the stance that getting older sucks noodles.

If you're older you are closer to biting the dust.
You become uglier and possibly fatter.
You need to have a job and responsiblity for taking care of family.
People expect you to be mature.

A interesting? debate.

With age comes wisdom, experience, and luxury that you may earn.

Sure the older you are is another day to death but so is it for everyone else.

You say as people age they may become "uglier" or "fatter" but a great thing happens with age those things matter only so much. With age comes maturity and a realization that looks are not everything.

Furthermore of course you need a job to live, unless your a leech on the system. Having a family is optional.

Again I will bring up the point of maturity. Of course older people - at least under the age of 70 - are expected to be mature. By the time you reach the age of 40 you are aware of most things and grow up mentally.

This is possible with friends and colleages, however, you forget to mention that requires effort which is not forced upon children. Children are allowed to play outside and just have fun and not have to worry about rubbish such as wisdom or luxury.

I don't no about you, but would you rather look at an ugly or a hot person? It's a constant eyesore. And looks are symbolic of health and good genitics.

Children are allowed to leech off their parents yet we get looked down upon for having to adapt to not being as so? And single older people are viewed as pedos or child melosters or virgins.

Again I will bring up the point of maturity. Of course older people - at least under the age of 70 - are expected to be mature. By the time you reach the age of 40 you are aware of most things and grow up mentally.

Aka, boring.

"This is possible with friends and colleages"

Sure you may acquire some wisdom, experience, and/or luxury with friends but that does not happen all at once. It takes time to acquire those things even with friends. Than you have the audacity to bring up college as if a two year old would be able to do i.

"Children are allowed to play outside and just have fun and not have to worry about rubbish such as wisdom or luxury."

Yes, exactly. Children are just that, children. Dumb, joyful, hopeful, and blind. Furthermore you imply that wisdom and luxury are trivial. The very fact that you are able to make claims based upon personal thought imply s wisdom, which gets better with age.

"I don't no about you, but would you rather look at an ugly or a hot person? It's a constant eyesore. And looks are symbolic of health and good genitics."

That statement is more childish than my counterarguments. Two things;

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
"Hot" has a price.

Depending on a persons definition of hot they may not be healthy. For example if person A finds person B attractive because she is thin and big breasted that would be good but person B acquired those look by starving herself and getting surgery that may have killed her. Risky behavior in order to appear "hot" is not healthy.

"Children are allowed to leech off their parents yet we get looked down upon for having to adapt to not being as so?"

Yes. Children are in need of care of the parents. Must the parents spoil them, no, may they, yes. Again their children not yet capable of working or doing anything of use until they become older. Until then they have a reason to leech. As for someone who is above the age of 20 you better be looked down upon for being a leech offering nothing in return for being a child.

"Aka, boring."

Childish answer. Boring is how you interpret it because your unaware of their own enjoyment. What the older people do may be enjoyment to them. Selfish kind of attitude.
