Yes, it's quite amazing when it can show up that early. It really makes you feel out of step with your real age. My mother also had that at a very young age. She said she was in high school when grey started showing. It's funny, my brother has the same patch as I do, and my mom's also showed up in a similar spot. Must be a hereditary weak spot - lol

I think you are only a few years older or younger than me( I am 27) and you are getting grey. I know you said because it was because of your family genes. I think grey hair could look good on a woman though depending on your original hair color and skin tone.  If you are a natural blonde having grey growing in as  your natural color shouldn;t look that bad even at your young age. If you are a natural brunette(especially a dark haired brunette) that might change your appearence too drastically.

I am actually a natural brunette (sometimes my hair could be classified as black because it's very, very dark brown). I am actually not really all too concerned about getting a few grey hairs. I am okay with aging gracefully. I am actually 25, so I am a bit young for this happening. But, it's all good  ;D

I am actually a natural brunette (sometimes my hair could be classified as black because it's very, very dark brown). I am actually not really all too concerned about getting a few grey hairs. I am okay with aging gracefully. I am actually 25, so I am a bit young for this happening. But, it's all good  ;D


Yeah, I've heard of people getting a few stray gray hairs, even as early as their late teens sometimes. I never noticed it in any of your pics, but if I didn't know I'd probably mistake it for blonde streaks, so I think it's cool. :)

The only thing I've come to despise as I've gotten older is having to shave more. I can't stand even any remote facial hair, both for the feel and the appearance (most people say the babyfaced look suits me better anyway, and I agree). I look relatively youngish for my age though, people usually don't think I'm any older than 20 or maybe 22. Whenever I mention some personal experience from the '80s that I actually lived, people kinda act surprised, lol.

Uh shaving it sucks for me because I have to shave everyday. Unfotunately, because I am italian and if I don;t shave for one day I looked like I;m in the process of growing a full beard because thats how fast the hair on my face grows.

Yeah I look like I;m 22 too(thats the comment I got a couple weeks ago.) I said once to a girl who was in High School Last year that I gradusted High School in 1998 and she's like 1998! Her friend thought I was much younger than my 26-27 years old of age at the time too I think. 

I am babyfaced too but I wish I can grow a go-t because it will make me look a little more sophisicated. I have to fully shave everyday because of my job.

And, I can honestly tell my body does not look like it use to (like when I was 21) I don't know why just a few years have changed me - I actually "feel" older. Before, I always felt like a young chap - but maybe it's just cause I've gained a few extra pounts this last year.

I'd say 1997 was the first "internet year", so anyone over about 14 can technically remember that, lol.

Of course it took about 8 years for it to go from a hot new thing that only a few people had for office use (back when they called it "the Information Superhighway") around 1993/'94, to becoming a standard by the early 2000s. But I'm talking about when it generally went from being a novelty to getting immersed in the culture and being a part of most people's lives.

...your taste buds begin to go.


 



About 75 percent of what we perceive as taste actually comes from our sense of smell. The odor molecules from food give us most of our taste sensation. Taste buds can only distinguish four tastes: bitter, sour, salty, and sweet.



The average person can discriminate between 4,000 to 10,000 different odor molecules. And we know that age takes a much greater toll on smell than on taste. Scientists have found that the sense of smell begins to decrease after age 60. Women at all ages generally have a much better sense of smell than men of the same age.

I'd say  generally  ... they  smell better than men .. smell better in the sense of pleasant. Body odours / perfumes, etc;

Their sense of smell is generally much better than a man's. Good for tasting/ enjoying food ... but not so good for unpleasant smells.

Gestures that sometimes accompany the song

Here is one version of the gestures for the chorus as done by rugby union fans, Hash House Harriers and US air force fighter pilots:


    Swing low: Hand clasped and fingers interlocked motion with arms
    sweet: kiss fingers and blow kiss
    chariot:' snapping invisible reins and shaky voice as if riding in a chariot

    coming: make a masturbatory gesture
    for: hold up four fingers
    to: hold up two fingers
    carry: cradle arms as if carrying baby
    me: point to self
    home: make arc over head with arms

Oh yeah. I was about 7 or 8 when we lost both of them.  I have a lot of memories of both of them. I worshipped my great-grandfather. I thought he was the just the greatest (no pun intended). I remember the last time I saw my great-grandmother. My great-grandfather had already passed away at this point and she was living in a retirement community. They had a little store which they sold their crafts and there was this stuff turtle sitting in the window of the store. My great-grandmother noticed me staring at that  turtle. She had them open the store (since it was Sunday) so she could get me the turtle. That turtle is still sitting in my bed room-and I ALWAYS think of my great-grandmother every time I look at him. There are many things that I don't know about them that I would love to know. I do get a few stories from my grandmother.

Oh yeah. I was about 7 or 8 when we lost both of them.  I have a lot of memories of both of them. I worshipped my great-grandfather. I thought he was the just the greatest (no pun intended). I remember the last time I saw my great-grandmother. My great-grandfather had already passed away at this point and she was living in a retirement community. They had a little store which they sold their crafts and there was this stuff turtle sitting in the window of the store. My great-grandmother noticed me staring at that  turtle. She had them open the store (since it was Sunday) so she could get me the turtle. That turtle is still sitting in my bed room-and I ALWAYS think of my great-grandmother every time I look at him. There are many things that I don't know about them that I would love to know. I do get a few stories from my grandmother.


Sorry to go off-but you asked and I start thinking about the two of them.

Wonderful. Being around 7 years, it is not the age you start asking about life when they were young. It is the deepest regret of my youth, but with the innocence of childhood, the child just does not know.

I think it's flat out weird when people YOUNGER than you start seeming not so different. Like it was only a few years ago that people who I only had a little time on (born around 1985) made me feel kinda old - since some of them didn't understand or like things I grew up with, or treated the '80s like they were "before their time".

Shoot, now I've seen people around that age who seem like they should be my elders! ;D

Remember in 1998 when Gas was 99 Cents a gallon.

I've gotten into alot of things secondhand too, it's all good. ;) There were lots of '80s movies that I didn't know existed or didn't come to enjoy until the '90s. Even alot of music, and I've listened to that practically before I could walk lol.

I got one even worse that that. I remember my mother putting in a dime or 20 cents worth of gas into the car-and this was a station wagon, too-probably didn't get that great gas mileage.
