There is a probabilistic calculation for this , which takes your height and weight as parameter and gives you your age.(error factor +/- 2 years)

Here follows a joke.

One day an education inspector visits a school and asks the class a question.

Inspector : What is my age , if the distace from delhi to bombay is 350 kilometers.(delhi and bombay are two cities in India)

Student : your age should be 50 sir.

Inspector : with excitement , the inspector replies . Very good , but how do you know?

Student : My brother is half-mad and his age is 25.

I think I have fairly young thinking but a rapidly aging body. Guessing my own age from inside here would be confusing.

You can only be young once. But you can always be immature. Dave Barry

Apropos of nothing, or at least not much, another message board I read has defined Gaudere's Law as the inevitably of a post correcting the grammar or spelling of a previous post to itself contain grammar or spelling errors. This thread proves the law in spades!

(I hope I spelled Gaudere right.)

I don't know about that, I don't find too many references to it on the Web. But you did spell "inevitability" incorrectly.

No, wait, I did that intentionably four humerus affect.

According to Wikipedia, it's really called [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skitt%27s_law]Skitt's Law[/url], but they do at least mention Gaudere.

I had vague recolections of reading about what you call "Skitt's law" on LanguageLog pages... Here is one quote:

Hartman's Law of Prescriptivist Retaliation: "any article or statement about correct grammar, punctuation, or spelling is bound to contain at least one eror"

Ask Satchel Paige.

BTW, the last word of the famous quote is "was", not "are". :-)
