Don't be put off by Harold, it is just his sense of humour - he's harmless really!
Not so much of the 'old' if you don't mind John.

Re: Age Survey

Less than 10% of the membership less than 55 ?
Including one canine in that "less than 10%" ?
"OLD" is probably apt :-P


(I was once on a bus and the child said "How tall is that building ?"
"Maybe twenty storeys"
"Wow ! Daddy's forty-one")

My understanding of the male viewpoint is: " Size doesn't count"

Maybe the Ladies in the "shed" should start a poll of their own, relating to male size comparisons, just to keep things non-sexist and equal of course

I'd be happy if you did I'm not keen on the mysoginistic style of some of the posting and not proud of my gender and age range here sometimes

Regards
Andy

Re: Age Survey

Mines got smaller as I’ve aged. I never had the biggest but it was still quite hefty in the hand.






Yes, I definitely like the size of my EM1-ii’s with the Panny 100-400 compared with the much heavier Canon 7Dii and 100-400 L ii.

Re: Age Survey

I hope the women (not 'girls' or 'ladies') on this site aren't discouraged by thinking the Lounge is a men only forum. I'm married with two daughters, have a female partner with three daughters, so I'm surrounded by women. My experience is that they can all 'mix it' with the best in male company. (My eldest daughter is an Aikido 4th dan black belt and can apply pressure to a point on my arm that makes it ache for days! My youngest daughter is scarier still - she has a tongue like a samurai sword and can cut my 6ft 4" down to size!)

Dear lord Jim! If only we’d realised, we’d have been gentler on you, you poor soul. I guess you must come here to escape!

Life is like that, there’s always someone worse off that yourself.

I know the feeling. I wonder where they get the training from?

That's what we thought Nigel was implying. Men's intuition!

I had worked that out Harold I just thought the intuition needed confirmation by someone more qualified.

I misread that as 'institution' first time around.
