    yeah it is lol

    once you get past 40,  some of us can't stop thinking about death and dying.

    to make matters worse, when covid pandemic started lot of 40 something year olds who were fragile and one loud ticking off away from 'breaking down',  literally did lol

    so mental health issues rocked through the roof and a lot of men 40+ contemplated suicide which is kind of  tragic tbh

    at 23 you are either decisive and mature for your age and have focus or you're too busy getting wasted every other evening with the lads lol

    Nah, not at all, 'cos I'm the same age as you and I'm the same. I think that as we've both grown up and matured, we've both just come to realise and accept that it is what it is.

    In some ways, no it's not weird, although, the reality is that as we get older we become more cautious in dangerous situations, such as driving in a bad snow or rainstorm.

    As people age, the tendency is to come to terms with the inevitable of death. So not weird.

    I don't know, you might be a bit young to be going through that.  And youth tend to feel more invincible.  But maybe you were always just more mature for your age.

    Not really. You have less to lose at 41.

    I don't think so, but what's that got to do with trivia?

    A massive dam towers above a river. Go to the town that sits five miles downstream and ask the residents what their thoughts are on the dam breaking and flooding the town. They will tell you that it's a possibility, but that they hope the safety protocols they have in place will be effective in saving lives and that they don't spend a whole lot of time worrying about it... Then  go to the town that sits two miles from the dam and ask the residents there the same question. They will tell you that they doubt anything like that might happen, and that they're confident that it never will. But something really interesting happens when you go to the town that sits at the very foot of the dam. The people there will completely refuse to even entertain the possibility that the dam could fail. How does this relate to the way human beings process the fact that death is an inevitability?
