I like the way all these ageist tech bros in their 20s think they're never going to live past 35. If you're optimizing all your runs and meals, what do you think you're doing it for? To make it past 35 *at least*. So what is their actual life plan?

Leave it to tech bros to be sloppy thinkers about their own planned obscolescence 🙄
The contradiction of "I'm going to FitBit and Soylent and AllBirds and optimize my brain and then at 34 years old I will go live in a cave by the sea because I will never be relevant again" is somehow something they don't have the basic foresight to understand
They will bounce around saying they love algorithms but don't understand the idea that life is an algorithm -a pattern of repetition and learning leading towards optimized thinking that takes time. How did we put these clowns in charge of Innovation and Disruption for all of us?
The main advantage of youth is energy, and the reason is you're going to need every bit of that energy for the lessons that teach you to take nothing and nobody for granted. And that is the wisdom that age brings: That nothing is guaranteed and you are owed nothing.
Silicon Valley is full of dudes living with a Peter Pan complex because they believe intelligence will negate their own need to deal with their mortality (spoiler: everyone dies) and these deluded denialists are the ones envisioning the "future" for us. smh.
I did a thread on adulting, send it to your local tech bro 🙄
Here's a hot set of tips on how to avoid "aging" imo: Life is short, nothing is guaranteed, good things rarely come around twice so learn to know a good thing when you see it, stay curious about everything, enjoy living while you can and help others around you to enjoy it too.
By the way, these tech bros are also wrong. The best age to found a startup is 45 years old.

45 years old!

When thinking is clear, loss has been experienced, and impulsiveness is curbed.

I refer you to the great philosopher Chidi Anagonye

-we should stop telling young people that these are the best years of their lives. Growing up is hard, it's painful, it's full of loss as well as empowerment, and it is nonstop until death.

-old people should respect young people! Stop being patronizing!
