Default How about legally changing your age?

Man Loses Bid to Legally Change His Age from 69 to 49 in Effort to Boost Tinder Profile - news - att.net

That would be handy, with ageism being rampart, but I don't think it's like gender change. I would have denied his request, too. What do you think?

Gary Hart (presidential candidate in the 80's) did it, by just one year, and a friend of mine's dad did it, he was getting remarried to a much younger lady, but still i dont think it was that many years, maybe 5?

Heck, even Superman turned back time by only 3 days!

I thought it was the stupidest thing I'd heard in a while, when the application was first made. You can claim to be any age that you want, but your body knows your true biological age, and you'll age by that.


I'm glad the courts shut it down.

As some of you may know, my blog is currently off-line due to some problems at my previous site host. I'm working with my web master to rebuild and get back on-line.

Mostly i thought people did it (like gary hart) so the record will show they were conceived after their parents got married. Back when that mattered.

If we based it on the age I feel, I'm 100.
If it's the age I act, 14 forever.

Hey, why not legally change one's age?


I give it 20-40 years and humans will have their lifespans extended dramatically if not indefinitely thanks to advances in life extension sciences and cybernetics. Hell, we already have 3d printed organs and we already reduced the aging process in mice to about 1/3rd of it's usual speed so it's only a matter of time. Who will give a flying flip about age when a 100 year old and 30 year old will be nearly biologically identical?


To make a long story short, too hell with ageism and what's natural. I defy biology!

You should be able to change your age depending on your health. People who take care of themselves are healthier than people who are much younger. A 60 year old non-smoker should be allowed to say he is younger than a 40 year old smoker!
