    Default At what age ....

    .... do you stop putting the 1/2 in the age?

    We never had kids so not sure on the rules. What we understand is you'd say your kid is 5 1/2, and you'd also say a child was 15. So we assume it's below 15, but higher than 5.

    We need to know this or our evening will not be complete.

    Edit : she's just followed up with ..... "I bet even that chap who claims he knows what he's doing with trading would have predicted that response".

    I think I may give her too much of a running commentary of the goings on here.

    Mrs OG occasionally looks over my shoulder when I've baiting vetran or some such and asks why I bother with them, as they're clearly complete idiots.

    And tell Mrs Whorty he's a twunt, not a chap. And give her my best wishes please.

    I would say < 10 or > 90 you include the 1/2.

    "I'm 93 and a 1/2 don't you know"
    You above all people should know probabilisitic analysis is a stochastic process of independent of deterministic variables subject to constant change....

    Oooh, never thought about if it kicks back in again. Mrs W isn't convinced with this, but then we don't know anyone over 90 so we can't speak from a point of knowledge.

    Mrs W also thought <10 (I had no feckin idea, I mean, kids!!)

    You must be related to kids if you don't have them, or at least people who were kids when you were an adult.

    In regards to the very old people near 100 - they do get to the point where they tell you exactly how old they are again.
