Age is “Just a Number ” As is the Speed Limit – So, How ‘Bout a Maximum Age?

You know, they say not to worry: “Age is just a number.”
Well, so is the time and temperature – likewise your checking account balance and credit score. And I’m pretty sure most people put considerable emphasis on those “numbers.”
It has been pointed out to me that the speed limit is also a “just a number.” But, many drivers perceive it as more of a “suggestion.” I have to confess to being one of those drivers.
Nevertheless, that gave me an idea.
I SUGGEST we limit age to the latter 1970s Interstate speed limit – 55!
You don’t have to die or anything.
Just LIMIT the “number” to a maximum of 55.
I like it!
Who’s with me ?!
