Default Is the Forum aging you??

I've just heard from someone that new evidence suggests that spending lengthy periods of time focused on a single online place like this forum can effectively add 10 years to your natural age, and even significantly affect you if you are just reading!
And apparently withdrawal symptoms aren't much better...

Has anyone else heard about this?!

Have not heard about it, but some days I do feel it

But seriously, if we are on this forum, does it not mean we have something to complain about, are angry about something or generally confused, all negative things helping us age.

I think the trolls eat your soul. Fortunately there are not too many trolls on this forum.

April Fools!
The only new "evidence" is a few more extra grey hairs

But I seem to have picked a subject with some reality so do carry on

April 1 is named FOOL'S DAY, after Steve April. He was born on 1st April 1579. He did 105 businesses in his lifetime. He lost all his father's assets, and so everyone started calling him father of the fools. At 19, he married a 61-year-old woman who divorced him after a year because of his foolishness. He used to read all kinds of fake stories like you are reading right now..!

There's a name for someone like you but I cannot repeat it here because I'll get banned from the Forum.

Good one.
