Welcome Daywalker - I like fantasy too.

What authors do you like - Robert Jordan, Terry Brooks, David Eddings, George R R Martin, Robin Hobb, R A Salvatore, Steven Erikkson, J R R Tolkien, Tad Williams, J V Jones etc?

I have read the Wheel of Time, the Dragonlance books, the Shannara series, The Belgariad and The Mallereon.

I've got a stack of fantasy books at home waiting to be read - don't get the time these days though.

Yes, I know Frankfurt airport :wink:

Welcome Daywalker.

Glad to have you join the boards. You are 28 years old? Did I get that right. You have wonderful muscle definition. How long have you been lifting?

Hey, how did you figure 28? I got that, too, by calibrating my vegan lifespan by adding a year (to 5) so I could plug my own age in by comparison to get his. Man, this is a geeky post, but I was racking my brains trying to figure it out. Was there a clearer formula to use? Heh. 8)

Well I figured he has been vegan for 5 years. In 18 years he will have been a vegan for (18+5) 23 years. That will be 1/2 of his lifetime (at that time), which means he will be 46 yo. So 46-18=28? Is that right?

28+6=34/2=17 (or 28*0.607=~17).
28-17=11!

You've been lifting since you were 17 or for 11 years. Yes?
Geez, guys, stop making me work out my body AND mind. One or the other really, one or the other. Hehehe. :wink:

Daywalker: I don't think those numbers add up. Did you mean that so far you have been lifting for 39.3% of your life?

Or did you mean that in 6 years (if you don't lift anymore) you will have lifted for 1/2 of your life?

*** Hey Brendan you snuck in there before I could finish my post ***

Because if you have lifted for 60.7% of your life, and every day from here on you also lift, then the % of your life that you have lifted must increase every day. So you could never get to 50% again unless you stop lifting.

I had wondered the same thing but I didn't think it was interesting enough to comment on. Maybe he is able to use inter-dimensional space like Sahjan from the TV series Angel, in which case the laws of time and space wouldn't apply to him in the same way.

And I thought YOU could bend time and space, being 12 and 23 years of age at the same time and place ... :shock:

Well I have been alive for 12 years. I just have also been alive for an additional 11 years on top of that.
