50 and retired seven years ago.

Congrats Mr P and thank you for your service.     My lovely wife is younger than I.  We had our first child when I was 50 so I cant retire until 72 !  I happen to have a twin brother who retired about 10 years ago from the Air Force.  No time for envy, just keep on working!

Glad I started young with my children. I'm 46 now and have 4 kids: 26,24,19,17. My youngest baby girl graduates in 1 week and heads off to college this fall. The wifey turns 44 so we will be young "Empty Nesters". In hindsight, it would have been nice to stay enlisted otherwise I too would have been able to retire at 44.....c'est la vie

Wait a minute... I thought 69 was one position that a couple didn't need to worry about.

Dang, old man. I expected you to say "whooper snappers"

I am one of the young ones at 52, but many of the older crowd can probably get around better than me.

67 and it seems my best years are the ones I can't remember. I've seen photos that would suggest that may be true..

Ok guys

competition is won easlily by the oldies. no problem, but for the future, who is the youngest?? And which group is larger, the young ones or the old ones?

olmost grey myself, just turned 61 yesterday, surprisingly lots in the same group of 60+ , is sequencing some kind of after midlife crisis?

 

And where are the people with the 46,XX genome B)

Happy sequencing from The Netherlands

I feel like in order to get the younger folks into sequencing they need a phone app to do the sequencing with. My 22 year old son almost always has his face in the phone and even though he is musically talented (piano and guitar) I cannot get him interested in helping me with the sequencing. His main interest is the **** phone.

Any younger sequencers want to chine in? Is anybody under 30 creating their own sequences? I would love to see some.

I tried that with my 12-year old grandson.  Turns out I helped poison the well when I got him his first tablet when he was four or five.  Today, he doesn't have a clue how an ordinary PC works.
