This is a question Getting Old

Drimble asks: When was it last brought home to you just how old you're getting? We last asked this in 2004, and you're eight years older now. Eight. Years.

I was working at Download this year as part of the security team.
I struck up a conversation with a gent who had just come away from the second stage looking rather unsteady on his feet. He told me that he was having a break from the crowd because he got caught by someones elbow in a moshpit and it winded him, but he told me he'd be going back in when he got his wind back 'to get the little fucker'.

He was 83 years old.

I no longer feel that I'm too old for anything.

You would have been perfectly entitled to do your job
and escort him off the site (arm twisted painfully behind his back) for inciting violence. These spiteful old moshing 83 year olds get pretty feisty.

I wish I had gone, the guitarist in my band was playing in The Anti-Nowhere League, I couldn't go. I have a kid, I guess that's my old story. No more festivals for me in the foreseeable future!

A bullet could stop you.
A knee in the balls would stop you.

To be fair...
those would immediately render you physically unable, so the statement remains factually accurate.

Or a lump hammer to the knee. Or a tank. Or a hurriedly-built 10-foot brick wall in front of you, or a tank. Or a car. Or a herd of elephants charging at you.

In fat, Dan dan dan is absolutely full of shit - loads of things could stop you.

Unless you happen to be Superman, then you're unstoppable.
Because from what I can gather, Kryptonite is a fictional material.

good on him
I've seen the occasional old bloke in a suit at a hippy festival and thought that was pretty cool but that definitely wins
