When this poll was first posted, there were no respondents in the 70+ bracket. I am now over 70, and I would not be surprised if a few other boardies are, as well. I hope so, anyway. Being the oldest person in the room is not something I relish.
It has been over five years so I would imagine you aren’t the only one who is in that group as there were 13 in the 61-70 group then.

I have also moved up to the 51-60 group. But just barely.
In five years, half the people would have moved to the next bracket, except those who are permanently 29 and those who converted their age to hexadecimal.

Why half? Aren’t the odds equally as likely that pinkfreud was the only one and the rest were 62 when the poll was posted?

It'd probably be less than half, but with our sample size, a tossup anyway. Assuming average distribution, more people are 60-64 than 65-69.

Most certainly not equally likely, and, as stated, your scenario is impossible, as the vast majority of bordies were below 60.

Yes, there are probably more boardies 60-64 than 65-69, but there are probably also more of those 26-30 than those 21-25, and given the relative sizes of the 20s and 60s groups, the latter probably outweigh the former.
