When Japanese feel they are getting old

Advertisement

goo Ranking looked something that comes to us all, when people feel they are getting old.

Sadly I can identify with far too many on the list! However, referring to the first number 43, I must have started getting old in university or so! Although I have no memory,my wife often reminds me (number 4 at work?) that I even farted on our first date.

Talking of farts, here’s a poor translation ending up as accidental poetry and represents my policy for bottom burps:

LOL farts
