Somebody has gone to a lot of trouble and time to let such people explain in their own words, I suppose I could do a transcript but it is not a long video.
Somebody is feeling woke this morning.

Somebody is offended in the very thread that promotes pushing back on political correctness? TSK!

I checked the internet but could find nothing saying that 'sunset years' is an ageist term. Could you give me the Woke List of Permitted Words ? That would be fantastic and ever so helpful.

Cognitive decline starts at age 50 (generally speaking) so, of course, I'm including myself in the 'sunset years' group. I'm well past middle age (unless I'm going to live to be over 110 years old, which I have no interest in doing) but now I don't know how to refer to myself without offending the wokeness brigade. Am I permitted to say 'older' or 'old' ? I'm just checking because Trump's NIH refers to us as 'older adults'. I'm frantically clutching my pearls.

So, you're refusing to tell us what's in the video? Quelle surprise.

Trump's NIH also recommends learning something new --- very good for the brains of OLDER ADULTS. Maybe this is a good time for you to learn how to write? Just saying. This is said to help YOU to keep enjoying the activities you love so much. It will be difficult to continue trolling if you're drooling on your keyboard because you've forgotten how to swallow.

From the NIA:

"Be wary of claims that playing certain computer and online games can improve your memory and other types of thinking. Evidence to back up such claims is evolving. NIA and others are supporting research to determine if different types of cognitive training have lasting effects."

The NIA is the National Institute on Aging. Are we still allowed to say 'aging'? Or does that hurt your feelings? Clutching pearls again. Anyhoodles, Trump's NIA says that playing games on the internet might not be helping your brain health. Which actually explains a lot of your posts. Maybe the drooling has already started and you've short-circuited your keyboard? Just spit balling here.

I'm going to explain it to you as if I'm speaking to a five year old (my apologies to five year olds) ...

Watch me. I have posted links below. I have not demanded that people just click the links because they "tell it all". Instead, in my own words, I stated my position and used the links to inform further. However, even if you never click on the links, you still know exactly what my meaning is. Now you try it! You can do it!

Writing is fun. Staves off brain atrophy in the sunset years.
I agree with this really.

Boiler is certainly a thinker in his/her own way but I really do wish he would utilise his brain and mind to openly write posts in his own words and meaning rather than play the hit and run link dump game.

I saw what I thought was a muppet so I gave it a go. After four and a half minutes I was waiting for the comedy to begin.

Muppets are quite good for learning. Deceived again.

Wow, there are some very concerning stuff going on in schools these days. In the USA it very clearly explains the chaos they've been suffering this last couple of months or so. No wonder the place is so screwed up.
