How old are DEFCON players?

Postby Splatterer » Fri Nov 10, 2006 6:02 pm

Hey, let's do some demographics.

So no one is shy about offering up their age, I'll start.

I'm a 33 year old male, married, with a child.

Heh, I'm usually the 'old man' (at 33) in gaming forums. Sometimes, I'm surprised tho'. I met a Unreal Tournament player once who was 70.

All you young'uns don't know what it was like for us. We'd watch a movie like WarGames and then have to go home and play Missile Command on our Atari 2600s. Playing missile command in 4 colors and dreaming of better days to come. I always wonder, what are the games we're playing now going to look like to my (now 2 year old) daughter when she's, say, 16. Is the gap going to be as large as now vs. the 2600 days?

25.
No children.
Got a degree in Mathematics but ended up in I.T.

Here's a question for you gerbil. I've always wanted to know why our friends over the Atlantic refer to math in the plural?

Well 'math' and 'maths' are shortened forms of 'mathematics'. So the question is, why is 'mathematics' in the plural, and why did you drop the s?
