But old people have better stories. And I like ladies with blue hair.

Little kids can't buy beer.

MrBrau, you're on quite the creative roll lately

I'm kind of fond of both kids and old people. I mean, if George Bush were a 5-year-old child, or a really old person, his take on world domination would surely be different. Better strike that point--especially the first one.

I see the old and young as the bookends of existence, so I try to take it what I can from both. The prejudices of old people can often be alarming, no doubt. If you're Black, or German, there are a shit load of 80-year-olds who would love to give you a good wallop with their canes. Seniors are like living time machines--concentrate on the good stories, and there are a few lessons there: lessons of resourcefulness, struggle, respect for nature, etc.

In contrast, I love the wide-eyed brilliance of kids. A friend of mine has a little 2-year-old girl. She's amazed at everyday things, like snow on the patio, or a dog's bark. There's something special about that, the openness of childhood.
