So Get off those Whippersnappers' Damn Lawns!

Old age begins at 27 - scientists claim after new research | Mail Online: "Old age is often blamed for causing us to misplace car keys, forget a word or lose our train of thought.

But new research shows that many well-known effects of ageing may start decades before our twilight years.

According to scientists, our mental abilities begin to decline from the age of 27 after reaching a peak at 22."

I'm sunk. My novels have been declining since the first, in 1978.

Wait a sec. I heard that report forty years ago, but they said the decline started at age 25. I know they recycle old jokes in Playboy, but are they now recycling old scientific studies?
