I remember when this site first came into play. Now if I can only remember my user/pass back then.
I was once the youngest person on Neowin.
The opening day when it was just me and Redmak on the site lol

Na, I think it is almost everyone. It's pretty funny I think, especially when I watch my friends with kids. All I can think is, " This is just one kid watching another."
It's just crazy the perception we have of others and then of our own self. Sure, we have matured, learned, and aged... ( At least some of us have ), but in the end, in our own mind, we are still young. I just wonder how long this last and if it ever "updates". It just blows my mind to think, Does my 80 year old grandparents still see themselves as they were when they were teenagers? Will I when I'm at that age? Will others just see me as the old guy or do they now?

Huh. I've had those thoughts a lot myself. I've always wondered if kids now see me the way I used to see (and still see specific) adults.
Like for instance...my mom had me when she was 20. My dad (technically stepdad, but I just think of him as my dad) was about 27/28 when he came into the picture...when I was only about 3 or 4. So that means I'm now older than they both were...and oddly enough I don't feel like I've reached the level I thought they were at when I was growing up.
Then again I just always thought I was one of the few odd ones that for some reason felt stuck younger than I am and that I was a weirdo for it and just managed to mask it fairly well.

Same here. Compared to the adults I was around growing up, it hasn't seemed like I reached the level that I viewed them, even though I'm older now than they were.
But I feel that I don't mask it. I'm still very young at heart. Love cartoons, games, full of energy and jokes. I wear tshirts of Ninja Turtles or Adventure Time

I was actually 17 when I had my first encounter with Neowin... Almost 12 years ago .........
