… you see a circle pit starting at a festival and decide it's not a great idea to join in

*disclaimer: this happened to me yesterday, but my decision was based more on the heel injury I've had for the past week than thinking I was too old to mosh - I was struggling to stand at the time (it was my third festival of the weekend).

When you see your tummy and the behind extending - and other areas distending - in ways you do not like. the grey hair add on each week is really flattering too...

When someone writes underneath a Youtube video something along the lines of:

"I was 4 years old when Michael Jackson died and I'd never heard of him..."

I'd guess seeing as the comment was underneath an actual Michael Jackson music video I'd say yes.

I always think it looks nice and relaxing, yet ironically in the middle of London.

When you see a themed club night and think "oooh grunge music, I'd quite like to go to that" and then see that it starts at 10:30pm. I go to bed at 10:30pm!

^ I don't know why but it reminded me of one place I went to a few times

It was very much music up my street (metal/rock etc) I went during uni. Infact barring pubs it was the only sort of nightclub you could ever get me in as I all the others played music I'd rather shoot myself than listen to but

So I frequented it when I was..19-23ish, all felt fairly normal! nothing out the ordinary, fitting in fine.

Then I went back once when I was 26/27 for whatever reason. I felt like a dirty old man..looking at all these "women" (girls?!) I doubt I was far off being old enough to be their dad! or at least It felt that way (I'm aware I Would have had to father them at the age of about 8 but still)

That was my nightclub ..life..over 26 and past it.

When you remember most of the DJs on Radio 2 being on Radio 1. All it needs is Jeremy Vine and Vanessa Feltz to get replaced with people like Chris Moyles and Bruno Brookes and it's complete!

I'm now 3 years older than singer Michael McDonald was in this video - he'd have been 34, yet looks so much older!

… when you realise you're not invincible! I had a fall last week in Newfoundland and cut my head open on some rocks and it's the first time I've ever felt that I might hurt myself seriously. Fortunately, despite the heavy bleeding (head wounds do tend to bleed excessively), there was no concussion, just lots of grazes and bruises and a deep cut a few millimetres from my eye which made me feel that I could have lost it. It's a reminder that I may have to start slowing down in the future!

^ I guess if I answered OP question, it would be something about health, nothing like an accident or a close brush with serious health issues that make you think about getting old and put things into perspective.
I am glad you are ok, GI, and nice to have you back

You wake up in pain

Seriously, I'm 32..do I need to start looking at special mattresses with selling points such as firm and supportive?

I used to be able to sleep on literally anything
