i feel like i'm thirty already.
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/16 - 4:50:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I wish it was
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/16 - 9:24:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
seeing as i turn 30 next year, and in good health, it could be, who knows.
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 4/14/16 - 9:26:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
I'm 39 now. 39 is the new 19.
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Friday 4/15/16 - 11:23:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
the phrase is about social development.

it has to do with the high number of college graduates attempting to establish themselves in a career path.
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 4/16/16 - 6:02:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Right. And in this moment of my life, I'm socially delayed by twenty years.
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 4/16/16 - 6:05:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Could see myself reaching peak yuppy then, yes
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 4/16/16 - 6:06:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
*yuppie
1 yr ago, 7 mos ago - Saturday 4/16/16 - 9:25:53 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ha sure, why not?
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 4/24/16 - 1:51:26 PM EST (GMT-5)
seriously if i'm not twenty by the time i'm thirty i'm going to be seriously pissed off.
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/1/16 - 8:18:27 AM EST (GMT-5)
Well they say 9 is the new 13.
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 5/1/16 - 12:58:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
Tubman is the new twenty.

20/30 = x/28

28*20 = 30x

560 = 30x

x = 560/30

x = 18.6666666666666...

i'm barely legal.

Wait. Did you do that right? My figure says I'm 29ish. That's relative to the old 20, right?
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/2/16 - 3:43:48 PM EST (GMT-5)
that is how you solve a proportion yes.
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/2/16 - 3:47:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
um... relative to 20 being 30. if 30 is 20 then 28 is 18 and 2/3.
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/2/16 - 10:31:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
and 29*30/20 = 43 which is what it says in your profile.
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/2/16 - 10:32:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
so no one should drink until they're 21*30/20 = 31.5.
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/2/16 - 10:33:37 PM EST (GMT-5)
sweet 16*30/20 = 24
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 5/2/16 - 10:38:43 PM EST (GMT-5)
will you still need me, will you still feed me, when i'm 64*30/20 = 96
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 5/3/16 - 10:32:39 AM EST (GMT-5)
Wait. Why doesn't it go the other way, though? If 30 is the new 20, why am I not 66ish?
1 yr ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 5/3/16 - 10:34:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why not 43:20 = 2.2ish:1, so 2.2 X 30 = 66?
1 yr ago, 5 mos ago - Friday 6/10/16 - 12:13:29 PM EST (GMT-5)
because the denominator and numerator are specified locations in a proportion?

and if you put 43/20 = x/30...

oh or are you saying...

43/30 = x/20

because you could do that but you'd have to keep the corresponding numbers together. it has to be new number on top and old number on bottom. that's how i set it up. or it would have to be...

real number over real number = new number over new number.

there's no relation between your current age and the hypothetical ratio age...

or...

your options to solve are...

43 your real age
/
30 the real age in the hypothetical

=

x your new age
/
20 the new age in the hypothetical.

there's no relationship between...

your real age and the new age in the hypothetical.

they are not a ratio.

i should never try and teach anything.

God, I hope so. There's so much sh*t I need to figure out, and I need to know I'm not the only stunted 20-something out there.

Sure, why the hell not?
