When Did You Peak?
« on: July 01, 2009, 12:10:27 AM »

So I was writing something the other day, and I realized that my spelling and grammar are terrible these days (fukoffnowadaysstrunkandwhite).  And I fully expect things to deteriorate rapidly because I just don't care anymore.

Then I started thinking about when my spelling skills were at their peak, and I'd estimate that happened around age 17. This was about the time that I started using word processors and became lazy.

Before I knew it, my mind wandered toward other attributes where I'm now on the downslope, falling fast.

I came up with these approximate ages when I was at my peak for a certain attribute or skill:

spelling: 17
memory: 17
physical fitness: 21
alcohol tolerance: 21
haxor skillz: 24
sense of humor:25
fashion sense: 25
physical appearance/charisma/self-confidence: 27
cooking: 36
golf game: tbd (this is one area where I'm holding out hope.  Once my dad retired and started playing every day, his scores dropped big time)

How about you?  (for any of these things or something else entirely)

spelling: 22  (by this age I was familiar with more words)
gramar:12 or so (6th grade teacher was great at teaching gramar and made it a game.  I answered over 100 questions correctly.  A record that stands to this day.

memory: 16 (before the side-effects fully kicked in)
physical fitness: 18
alcohol tolerance: 18 (freshman year my roommate and I could polish off 30 k'stones and then go to a hall party)
haxor skillz: ?
sense of humor: 23
fashion sense: 25 (I was in better shape, and my wife started dressing me)
physical appearance/charisma/self-confidence: 18 (I was a pimp at 18, all downhill after that)
cooking: 29
golf game: hopefully not 28 when I shot a 73.  I've hardly been back in the 70's since.

Hmmm....

spelling: not yet. I respond to around 100 emails a day and write several large communications, it's in my best interests for my spelling to be correct. I also don't use abbreviations when texting, or ****ting for that matter...
memory: still pretty good. I can recall conversations and discussions with people I've had over 12 months ago
physical fitness: 32 - when I retired from playing basketball
alcohol tolerance: a legend never pukes or passses out no matter how much alcohol has been consumed, however falling down stairs is allowed
haxor skillz: unsure, I've never been a haxor nor even tried, so potentially I haven't peaked yet
sense of humor:25 - losing your sense of humour at 25.. now that's funny
fashion sense: I've been wearing suits 5 days out of 7 for pretty much the past 12 years. Does that count?
physical appearance/charisma/self-confidence: I suspect I'll peak here on my death bed, but even then I reckon I still be a good looking corpse
cooking: when I start getting "meals on wheels" delivered to my home by some Charity organisation.
golf game: 33.

spelling: stihl preetty guhd,
memory: never had a good memory
physical fitness: 41 (5 years ago) two major injuries set me back, and I'll prolly never catch back up.
alcohol tolerance: my Irish keeps me fairly tolerant.
sense of humor:hopefully haven't peaked yet.
fashion sense: I thought I was doing Ok in this area until a certain female on this board said last year that shorts and wife beater t-shirts were lame (paraphrasing), and I was like "crap, but that's the summer Seamus". dang.  Cry
physical appearance/charisma/self-confidence: see above, all are shot.
cooking: 36
golf game: see physical fitness above

Most of my peaks came right after college - before the corporate world robbed me of my writing skills.  Dealing with grown ups that have a shorter attention span than a 5 year old really calls for brevity that destroys the message and all I could make of it.

Anywho......

spelling: still pretty good, its my fingers (typos) rather than my mind that gets me into trouble.
memory: 25
physical fitness: 23
alcohol tolerance: 30
haxor skillz: 27
sense of humor: non-existent
fashion sense: not sure there's a 'peak' so much as people getting stuck in a time warp, which I have not done..... yet.
physical appearance/charisma/self-confidence: 28
cooking: Never had it.
golf game: Apparently 35, but I'm hoping it returns.

spelling: with all the emails, proposals, etc. I believe I am still pretty good here.
memory: 30. Short term is going fast.
physical fitness: depends....overall probably 25/26 but I've never been in better cardio shape than I am now. Just wish I was a runner when I was younger.
alcohol tolerance: 30
haxor skillz: never had these skills.
sense of humor: 30-32. 
fashion sense: ditto hobbit
physical appearance/charisma/self-confidence: feeling and looking pretty good right now. Probably late twenties for physical appearance.
cooking: not sure I could call anything a "peak"
golf game: as of today.....42. Hopefully I'll see it again.

physical fitness: 25 - my gut feeling told me that's the age
alcohol tolerance: 0 (never good with alcohol)
sense of humor: since I got married, have a child and realize my dream girl is not that dreamy anymore  Sad
