That's courageous, particularly past 50 yo. It's a different
culture, past 50 yo in Europe people choose security, but in
USA, past 50 yo some people still take the risk to try
something new. Awesome.
I say "bollocks" to your accusation that Europeans post 50 are
a bunch of useless idiots.
I call double "bollocks" on the claim that only in the USA do
people do anything.
I agree (I think it's the first time I agree with you!). Age is
a state of mind. I've seen people in their 20ies who only think
about a pension plan and watch TV every evening until they fall
But in general, people slow down mentally as they age. Most US
companies - and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook is leading the charge
with his FWD.us lobby group - would prefer the government give
them the capability to hire an unlimited amount of 25 year old
foreign programmers instead of them having to hire 50 year old
