So what's the average Chowhound's age?? (Part 2)

I've still got that spreadsheet stashed away, so if we want to add some more votes to this (or maybe start over, given that all those of us who voted last time are now four years older), I'm up for it.(/Quote)

So here it is! What is your age (or the age you admit to)?

I am 43 and will turn 44 Sept. 9 (or as I like to say, "I am 29.95 plus shipping and handling")

          if she/he was 10 that mean thier first post was at age 4

      1. Older than a lot of us imagine. My guess the median age would be about 50.

        I am 58, and have been using Chowhound about eight years, I guess.

        1. I was born in the year of the Chevy.Bel Air that is.

          1. PotatoHouse, you are exactly 1 year older than me!

            I am 42 and will turn 43 on September 9.

            p.s. I'm curious, what was the average Chowhound's age four years ago?

                Voting seems to have stopped, so here's a (for now, at least) final update.

                The last batch included a number of 20-somethings, so the average and median have both dropped to 43. Youngest 15, most distinguished 75. Most common age still 59 (eight Hounds). By decade: three teens, twenty-five 20s, fourteen 30s, eighteen 40s, eighteen 50s, thirteen 60s, five 70s.

                    You can add four years to all those ages, PotatoHouse. Tempus fugit, you know...
