I've never heard it and I'm.... Maybe in the... Lower age bracket?

Christ that's really made me wonder, what's the age range in here?

I’m 41. But I grew up in a London, so I’m a good decade or two ahead of you yokels ;)

I can't be the youngest at 35 can I? That seems too old to be the youngest of something

It probably is , however the older folk like me / Warhead (poor Warbot) / and DBSnappa are still making up the top of the bracket - when are the rest of you going to age properly !

All the youngsters are off on Friendster or Bebo now. It's only a select, elite few who use internet forums.

Sally is definitely younger. And Rach. I think it depends on whether you mean active posters or the wider forum community.

I think this bit could all do with a thread split if the Mods would like to do that.

Its strange to consider that Beex is 13 years old (!) , and that most of the active people have been around for a lot of that

You are both the same as age as my brother. Who I think might have posted once on here and met some of you before BEEX

Not through lack of trying, though ;)

I am 43, the best age until October next year.

I'll be 41 in a month or so.

I don't feel old, but I am beginning to feel the effects of aging.

I'm 42 and while I certainly don't act it, I think I feel old sometimes. I feel like I could do with more naps but then again, I suppose I could just try getting to bed earlier at night?

I reckon I could nap daily. I don't think it's an age thing.

I do love a good nap, and generally fit one in on both days of the weekend.

Itd be wonderful if I could take a nap during the working weekdays too, but it doesn't really fit around the other stuff I have to do mon-fri.

Naps are becoming a thing of necessity. I usually get one when I get home from work and the rest are eating dinner, means I can function for the act of bed time

I find the length of many children's TV shows is perfect for a quick power nap. Somewhere around 15-20 minutes.

I do t understand how people can nap. If I nap I feel like an absolutely awful for the entire rest of the day. I feel like a grotty zombie.

You know when toddlers wake from a nap and just cry for an hour? That’s me. I absolutely can’t imagine how anyone feels refreshed from a nap.

I can't nap. I just can't switch off.

Napping is one of life's great pleasures.

When I was a student, a post lectures nap was a daily occurrence.

The trick is to feel like this all the time

Sometimes I'll lie on my bed with a timer for 45 minutes or so and just let myself zone out until it goes off. I don't force myself to sleep and the timer means I don't drop off into anything major.

Sometimes if I run at lunchtime in the afternoon when there's a lull in Teams calls/chatter I have nodded off at my desk. About ten minutes max before I get woken up by neck pain.

I can feel like that if I nap for too long. Do actually feel like I get some energy back if its less than about 20 mins, though.

Put me in the "can't nap" club. You can add on "can't sleep anywhere but in a bed" too.
