27 is the New 57?

Oh my goodness... What in the WORLD?!

I saw this article on Fox News this afternoon... and those of you who know about my issues with ummm... getting old... know how this has sent me into a tailspin! Especially in light of my recent mental decline...

New research suggests that old age actually begins even before we hit the ripe old age of 30.

The research, done at the University of Virginia, indicates that our mental abilities begin to decline from the age of 27, after reaching a peak at 22.

Oh, good Lord... I can't take it... on the upside - does this mean that I can retire? Or at least my brain?
