    Depends on the setting...I'm 27 and feel old for uni, but am definitely the baby in work, where I'm a good 15-30 years younger than most of my colleagues!

    As long as you're still economically active (working). Once you retire you don't really have the funds to embark on new ventures.

    30.

    I like to think of life as having three principal segments;

    0-30 = young
    30-60 = middle aged
    60-90 = old

    Above this, very old.
    Haha, I'm pretty sure most 30 year olds would be pretty shocked if someone called them "middle aged"! I realise it's not a clearly defined term, but I think it tends to be associated with people around 45-55

    I think when you are 21 you have no chance of getting away with it

    I think you should act in accordance with your age, life circumstances and responsibilities. For example, a 19 year old with a baby shouldn't be out clubbing every night because it's irresponsible, however if you're 30 with no kids then that's up to you as you're not harming anyone.

    30.
    Though much of it is down to whether you feel young or not, I'd say for most this is a good number.

    Edit:

    ^ Spongebob will never get old!

    I don't think people on here know many 30 years olds if they think a 30 year old is middle aged.

    Also when did the life expectancy become 60?

    I'm in my early 20s btw.

    It's hard to say really. It is quite the frame of mind!
    I'm 26 and I don't feel very young because of what I am looking for in life right now, but I'm sure there are those 10 years older who have a much younger outlook.

    Generally 30ish, though it does depend on the individual e.g. in some respects I look/act rather younger than I actually am :rolleyes:

    For me middle aged: 40-60

    once you're in your late 20s - early 30s, you're not really considered young anymore.
    A person in his late twenties is still young if I am not mistaken.
    It`s not like you suddenly turn old at 27.

    What do you class as the age where you can stop saying "I'm still young" as an excuse for not having done things you want to/doing silly things?
    When you get married/co-habitating and have kids.

    What about if "I'm still young" is your excuse for not having done that..? Does it still count even if you're 90?
