Default Have we grown up? Do we want to?

An intersting question was recently posed:

Have the collective, "We", grown up?


I for one have no intention of "growing up" (in relation to models and subsequent spin-offs)

Is that an offensive attitude/position to some?

.....or am I simply verbalizing what all of us in the hobby know, but don't publically acknowledge very ofter..............that we haven't grown up, nor do we want to because playing with this stuff and escaping the "grown-up world" is a big reason for enjoying it?

Your thoughts? Perhaps a poll?

Growing OLD is Madatory.
Growing UP Is purely Optional.

Inside of every OLD person is a young person that said "What the H3LL Happened?"

I choose to remain happily twenty something!

Hi,

I keep telling my wife I intend to grow up - tomorrow!

She keeps waiting for tomorrow to come.

Fly4Fun,

Wayne

I think, as with many things, it depends on your definition of "growing up".

If you're referring to the traditional "act your age" conformist type mentality where, at my age, I should be reading newspapers, watching sports and drinking beer, all while falling asleep in the armchair after supper then my answer is a vehement NO![8D]

If you're referring to taking responsibility for my actions and playing an active role in my children's life while maintaining my own personality/lifestyle then, Yes....[8D]

I know... too serious ... but then again, I'm a serious guy ... (and if you believe that, have I got some "new in box" part to sell ya.)

Hey kids are serious stuff -- fortunately mine have long since "grown up" & left the nest -- now I can enjoy my second childhood
