This is a cowdsourced database for reasons why growing old is great. It was made for celebrating the anniversaries of my friend Malla and me in June 2012.
Thanks for everyone who contributed to this so far, especially Saana Härkönen, Petrikki Tukiainen, Thomas Baker, Maria Karppinen, Valtteri Melkko, Odile Ehrbar, Mickael Fandi, Jean-François Maire, Michel Beretz, Ville Keränen and Anu Manner! Our initial idea with Malla was to list 54 reasons why growing old is great as we celebrated our 28 + 26 birthdays which makes 54 years of life. However, we've just invented 50 reasons so far…so may the list continue from now on, from year to year!
Editor's note: Please pay attention to the flow of points, they do get brighter as the list gets longer. And some, eg. #16 - #19 are directly connected to each other. The crowd sourcing method used so far was dinner table conversations, but you can participate online too by commenting this Slideshare presentation. Ps. Who knows a tool like Slideshare that allows instant updating online? I don't know, so this is a fixed version 1.0.
