60. But it depends on the person and situation.

Just for you.

75. I imagine most people accomplish their goals and experience life before then. After that point it's mostly being cared for by other people unless they're in perfect youthful health.

A dying animal struggles, thrashes and howls in protest as its life torn from it. To see this in action, watch Animal Planet. The same thing happens when a video game is or isn't released. To see this in action, stay here.

i am 62; my husband is 83. we've been married 30 years. we've survived the death of our daughter (many marriages do not make it thru that).

he suffered a TIA (mini stroke) on 17 Feb. he was a week in hospital and is now in a rehab facility. there wasn't much damage other than a residual weakness in his legs, which PT is helping him with. i get to visit anytime i want. his attitude is good. after the aphasia passed, he is communicating well. he does not have dementia, something i am forever grateful for. he should be home in another 10 days or so.

he may not make much difference to the world as a whole any longer, but he makes a difference to my world. who is to say what is a life well lived? who is to say what value any person has without knowing them?

as i said earlier: it takes ballz to get old in america.

Depends how long you are able to take care of yourself, I have no wish to end up in a care home, rather take a one way trip to Switzerland in all honesty, might sound a bit heavy but the alternative actually sounds worse to me.

Question #381: Do you like Dubstep? Why or why not?

Personally Idc for it too much, but some parts are cool and whatnot; used to listen to it at a friends house.

No. I don't like much music, dubstep included.

The majority of it is just awful, but there's a small amount which is really freaking good.

I like a lot of electronic music, but I don't care for dubstep, ESPECIALLY Skrillex.



I like the idea of dubstep as a genre in an entire spectrum of electronic music. I would never consider just listening to nothing but dubstep for an hour though.

Plus, it seems that a lot of people get the term "dubstep" wrong and just attribute it to any heavy electronica. But I'll spare the qotd thread from whining about generic conventions

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

Nope. I enjoy a lot of experimental electronic stuff that can have dubstep influences (Andy Stott, Gold Panda, etc.), but I really don't like it as a genre. It's way too maximalist and in-your-face in a bad way for my tastes, and if it's created using Ableton software, easily the most music I have ever listened to. I think I could fall asleep more easily to Deadmouse5 (or whatever that Canadian's called) that join in a dance/mosh pit at one of his shows. I'll leave you with this quote from James Blake, a British post-dubstep-ish artist, with his thoughts on the American dubstep scene (that I agree with):

"I think the dubstep that has come over to the US, and certain producers-- who I can't even be bothered naming-- have definitely hit upon a sort of frat-boy market where there's this macho-ism being reflected in the sounds and the way the music makes you feel. And to me, that is a million miles away from where dubstep started. It's a million miles away from the ethos of it. It's been influenced so much by electro and rave, into who can make the dirtiest, filthiest bass sound, almost like a p****** competition, and that's not really necessary. And I just think that largely that is not going to appeal to women. I find that whole side of things to be pretty frustrating, because that is a direct misrepresentation of the sound as far as I'm concerned."
