How old are they ?
How old are they ?
NEVER LISTEN TO A ONE SIDED STORY AND JUDGE.
Much prefer to age gracefully. I already am.
Challenge your fears, don't fear your challenges.
what was that thread called? Death pool or something.
Not wishing them to die but maybe it is their time ?
NEVER LISTEN TO A ONE SIDED STORY AND JUDGE.
Kenny is unrecognisable. I don't think I'd like to die looking like someone else.
Neil Diamond looks like Mike Huckabee on a bender.
Kenny looks bad...
he reminds me of the alien guy in This Island Earth
anyone seen Barry Manilow lately
and I remember when Manilow looked like this...
He looks like an old Clay Aiken ventriloquist dummy.
Keeping in shape is the secret to grow old gracefully. Step away from those donuts

Kenny Rogers also had a botched facelift.
I guess that is called "aging gracefully".
Not being a fucking shallow pathetic asshole when you are young is the key to growing old gracefully.
In the first post I feel like there's not too much difference between surgery and non surgery.
And for some people who did too much surgery it's looks really weird on them.
I still think Keanu Reeves is insane at almost 50, he still has the same look 20/30 years ago.
I'm 43. I look at least 45. I'm cool with that. I have a feeling if I had work done, I'd...just...look like I had work done. I have no issue with anyone who gets face lifts - one guy I know gets botox every month, and looks at leat fifteen years younger. I've just got other thins I'd rather spend my money on.
You know, it's not in the wrinkles, it's in the joints. At 60 I look ok, younger than some guys I know that I have a decade on, but when the damn weather changes my one knee is a f'n barometer.
Also I find that even when I get my glasses changed I still can't see as clearly as I did at one time,
however, the worse thing is memory, I had a mild stroke about a year ago, sometimes I have to look at my drivers license if I am asked for my address, I told my doctor that I hate getting old, he responded with "there is only one cure"
His turn is coming.
My karate instructor is 68 and still does 2 full shifts per week in the class. Not like those other instructors who walk around barking instructions; he gets stuck in with everything. He won't tell us to do 50 pushups if he isn't doing them himself so really does lead by example. He is starting to look a little old these days, finally, but hey - 68 is not a bad age to start aging, is it?

I can hardly wait for all the shallow beautiful young things to reach the age of 50. Hopefully by that time they'll realize that it is fine to feel comfortable in your own skin.
Had it. Been there. Done that.
I'd rather grow old disgracefully à la Oliver Reed, thank you.
I was never graceful when young ... so there's little chance of me ever being graceful when old(er).
I'm doing my best to grow old DISgracefully - while still keeping in shape as much as I can (naturally).
Why the fuck would any homo guy want to age like Jane Fonda?
my plan: taking a good hard look at madonna... and doing the exact opposite of that.
Very few men, if any, look good after a facelift. They almost always have an unnatural look to them. Most women, on the other hand, can look good after a facelift, if they don't go crazy with it. I take pride in my appearance and my fitness, and I want to look good for whatever stage of life I am in, but surgery, botox, and lasers are not for me.
Are they shallow? Maybe. I just think they have different priorities than I do. Is their mocking of my lack of a skin-care regiment any more correct than my mocking of the fact that they haven't opened a book in a decade? They chose to be ignorant, and I chose to be ugly.
Will they "become comfortable in their own skin" at age fifty? Perhaps. Maybe they'll ease up on the beauty and fashion. Or maybe they'll press harder as time starts fighting back. Or maybe they won't have to because they'll have a three-decade head start. But you know there'll be a fresh crop thirty years behind them, anyway.
I'm afraid that age is finally catching up with me...I don't look so good when I wake up, and my joints don't want to work
age "gracefully" but that doesn't mean I won't take care of my body.. Some old people like in their 70s don't look a day over 40.. I wanna be that.
I see nothing wrong with surgery as long as it isn't done to the extreme ... like everything else it should be in moderation. I'm actually considering getting work done at 24 so I wouldn't rule it out later on.
No one...can growing old as gracefully as..
As for the memory thing, well, sex seems like a de ja vu experience and it seems as though there are never any re runs on t.v. anymore thanks for your concern, we just make the best of things, it's all anyone can do.
There is, in my opinion, a difference between growing old gracefully and not looking your age (due to the luck of the draw or the skills of a surgeon).
I look my age, if not older, and it is something I accept every morning when I put on my glasses and look at myself in the mirror but that doesn't stop me taking care with the way I dress, act and take part in life.
I don't want to be one of those old dryed up people hobbling along almost double. But it is not so easy growing old gracefully once your joints start going, your sight and hearing becomes impaired, your teeth need work and God forbid you should have to deal with all the other problems such as cancer, senility, etc.
As young men we never considered what lies in store for us as we pass into the 60s and 70s. It is not all bad, if associated with reasonably good health, but even so growing old gracefully requires a certain outlook on life a good dose of not letting yourself go.
Comportment is a feature of old age I'd like to pull off with nonchalant grace. I think my mum's genes has given me my babyface youthful appearance. The salt-and-pepper hair I assume will make me a bit more distinguished
As far as Neil Diamond is concerned, I'm sure he would look smarter after a shave. It looks like he was snapped the next morning after a hard night out. There's no need for any surgeon. Just a shower, shave, and a better wardrobe.

Fuck growing old gracefully, by the time I'm 80 I'll have a face pulled so tight you'll be able to bounce pennies off it.
Gracefully? With the greatest lack of dignity I can muster.
insert lemon party reference joke.
Deal Bender, nothing like a bit of back alley surgery, and some sump oil being injected into your arse.
I'll look stunning.
Ah aging. One day, you are young teenager and before you know, your decapitated head is in a fish tank. Such is life.
That is a particularly bad pic of Niel D. He was on the Royal Variety Performance in December and didn't look that old.
On his early LPs, he was quite hot to look at!
I am actually looking little bit better as I get older... I guess I grew into my looks, as I see when I look at pictures myself when I was younger. I'm actually loving getting grey on the sides of my hair..... But 1 ironic thing is that I just got contacts again for the first time in years, thinking it would make me look younger.....but now wearing contacts shows the bags under my eyes that the glasses hide...lol......
