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?

In this day and age, I'd say 25.

I would really love to say 35-40, but realistically speaking, the way that mainstream society will obsess over ever younger 'stars' like Selena Gomez, we'll soon be idolising pre-teens :/

I'd say it's all relative to the particular context you're talking about. At 20, I'd say I'm young for certain stuff, but also way too old for some other certain stuff.

Sorry for being generic I'm just tired.

It's hard to give a specific age, but I think most people would agree that once you're in your late 20s - early 30s, you're not really considered young anymore. There are also different stages of youth, I think. You have 0-10 (baby/child) 10-16 (child/teenager) 17-24 (young person) 24-27 (young adult) and... from there, around the late 20s-early 30s, I think you're just considered an adult. At that point you'd be considered young if you died, but, while alive, just an adult. It doesn't matter how old you are, you'll always be considered young if you're around older people :P

It depends entirely on the person, in my opinion.

You're only as old as you feel, therefore there is no set age for this.

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.
