benchmarks in your life you wish you'd never reached?
Did my C&W phase between the ages of 13 & 14, before discovering the Chicago blues sound. Listened to some awful cr@p but also discovered the likes of Neil Young, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson and some classic bluegrass acts.
Seem to have come full circle now – Old Crow Medicine Show are one of the best bluegrass bands I've ever heard.

reaching my peak fitness at 20 then smashing my knee to pices in the Autumn.
reaching the point where the only way I can beat a guy in a head to head BMX race is to take the do or die inside line at the first corner, this line results in more die than do though 🙁

These are not benchmarks
It's normal practice to code posts like this with:
<pedant mode> "your pedantic post" </pedant mode>
Shows people you're not being an arse
And of course you are absolutely right: these are milestones, not benchmarks

When your barber asks if he can cut the hair out of your ears and trim your eyebrows.
When you utter "young man" to someone other than your own son.
Vet's category – it means I can be more competative once again!
Looking forward to a midday snooze.
Not bothering with software that you know you should master and would make your life easier in the long run.
Seeing your parents in mental decline.
Still not owning a MP3 player, nor an i-anything, nor a PS2/3.
Thinking about ringing your Ex girlfriend and realising she's now a grandmother.
Witnessing those 10 years younger than you are now earning far more than you do.Posted 8 years agoChubbyBlokeInLycraMember
I can think of loads.
My 50th birthday is looming
These are not benchmarks
a standard by which something can be measured or judged; "his painting sets the benchmark of quality"
a surveyor's mark on a permanent object of predetermined position and elevation used as a reference point
Getting my knickers in a twist about that is a fair bit away thoughPosted 8 years agoPiefaceMember

yesterday i walked into HMV
yeah you know your old when your still buying cd's
Well i did this downloading thing recently and was a bit underwhelmed by the 'Value'.
I had no choice but to download the music as I didn't have time to go to the shop and wanted the tunes.
On CD I can get the double CD – 1 CD of original album and 2nd CD of extended / special mixes for £10. To download just the original album was £12.
Think I'll stick to CDs.Posted 8 years agoSaboteurCherieMember
I am conflicted when it comes to my education – I studied a mixture of Finance, Economics, Politics and Law and it has enriched my life. On the otherhand, I am now cynical, unimpressed by greed, brute-like behaviour and vapidness… and don't get me started on the so called "War Against Terrorism". Ignorance is bliss.Posted 8 years agomyfatherwasawolfMember
And no longer getting flyers for trendy clubs thrust into my hands on a Friday or Saturday night anymore
LOL! I'm 32 and work in a university – there are loads of these guys and I can see their minds working as I approach, some kind of half hold the flyer out then withdraw it.. only a matter of time 'til I don't get a look in!
Mine would be buying a pannier bag and rack for commuting this year.Posted 8 years ago
