I am working to avoid getting old, and I disagree that it isn't
possible to avoid. I am quite aware of Alzheimer's, although not
(obviously) from the perspective of a patient. I am aware from the
perspective of a family member (admittedly, there was a disagreement
whether it was Alzheimers or simply a series of mini-strokes, but the
ultimate effect was approximately the same).
Yes, I am young. That doesn't mean I can't think, reason, and come
up with valid concepts. That also doesn't mean that I'm immature enough to
engage in spelling flames.
