Why are there so many guys age 34?

I work with records and it's staggering. Was 1979 a huge year for births? Maybe as a result of the shitty weather in '78?

Its a great age to be, I know several guys who have been 34 for years ....

In 1978/79, the economy was in the shitter, so the only entertainment many could afford was fucking.

The baby boomers were moving into their prime childbearing years.

Soon thereafter AIDS came on the scene and there was less splooge flying around, which reduced out-of-wedlock pregnancies. At the same time, baby boomers moved into their prime divorce years.

Hence: today's world teeming with budding elderg4ys and straight fit-fatties just beginning to decline.

OP, you do realize that gay men NEVER age beyond 34. It's just cumulative...

1978-1979 is roughly the start of the Baby Boom Echo. When the boomers were having their won kids.

I'll be thirty four on my next birthday (and then for the next three years after that.)

Haha, I'm 34! I was at home sick the other day, watching daytime talk shows, and there was one with a segment about age and beauty, and it stated that women look their most beautiful at age 30, and men look their most handsome at age 34, on average.

There is a big group of 34 year old for some reason. I'm, 31 and I can remember in elementary school the number of classrooms was always bigger for the people a few years older and then when our class would get to second grade for example....they'd cut back on the rooms and teachers.

I'm not 34 yet, but I was born in 1979. Haha! Smashing Pumpkins even released as song "1979" so maybe there was something about that year.

If two men could have babies, I'd probably have had mine between 1977-1983. So, yeah, the Echo Boomer idea works.

Because 35 and 36 year olds are fibbing.

Peak year of disco, baby. There was something in the air.

Why are you so interested in us, Op?

Most of 1979ers are beautiful.

Northeast. The Blizzard of '78.

More people were born in 1980 than in 1979 or 1978

I'm 36, but, yes, I always claim to be 33. 34 feels too old.

by Anonymousreply 1603/28/2013

Because 34 is the perfect age. 35 is an old fart.

by Anonymousreply 1703/28/2013

I thought that too, Op, but I think I just thought it when I was 34 and so was more aware. I don't know what it is you do in records or whatever but maybe 34 is the age of a first home purchase or something similar?

Early 30s are the best time I'd say. 35 isn't as horrible in retrospect than it feels when you've reached it, but 36 is just the worst. :(

1979 here!

Because they were 17 when the cocktail came, and thus none of them died.
