I have never met anyone who is 119 years old. The older people get the less technology they use. Such as my grand-father who is just learning how to use a dvd player, and my great-grandmother who can't opperate a vcr.

To my knowlage nobady over the age of 75 owns a computer, and then barely uses it. Thus no one should be allowed to claim they are 119, or anything older than 80.

I researve the ability to make my case in later rounds.

Your lack of contact with older people does not give you a fair idea of how older people opperate. Have you ever heard of a 90 year old that has gone sky diving?

What do you think you will be able to do when you are 119 years old?

Do you think your mind will be full of mush and less able to do things?

I am allowed to claim whatever age I am allowed to claim. What if I told you I was 13 and then composed an argument that seemed impossible for a 13 year old?

Your basis for argument is your lack of real world knowledge as you readily admit.

you know im right so just bow down and submit

Let us Elders handle this stuff young lad ... now trott along and play your nintendo or atari or whatever ... let us more experianced people discuss adult business.

You are not 119 years old. You zre probably not even older than 20, you are most likely 15. Extend earlier points, please wait as long as you can to respond, will be gone about 1 week.

Gahbage listen to yourself:

"There is no reason you can't be alive before then, unless you're already dead."

That's like saying

"There is no reason you don't have an ice-cream, unless you already ate it."

What's the highest recorded age, like, 124? So there's absolutely no reason that you can't be alive and well before then, unless you're already dead.

An awfully large number of people claim to earn $150,000+ too.

Actually, my Dad was using his computer until he was 81, and he used it heaps.
