"I'm too old for this sh*t"

The iconic words of Roger Murtaugh, portrayed by Danny Glover, in the Lethal Weapon movies.

A thought that all of us have with each passing year, both about things we're now tired of doing, and things we once loved, but don't find as much joy in any more.

After hitting the big 3-0, we find ourselves increasingly surprised by the things we used to find fun, but now might find almost intolerable.

Redditor nonchalannt was curious to hear the things people lost their taste for after their 30th birthday, leading them to ask:

"What's not "cool" anymore when you turn 30?"


Actually worrying about anything being "cool"!

"Being cool."

"Actually for me it was around 35, because I like banging my head into a wall."

"But others started realizing earlier than me."

"Everyone I knew started realizing that all of the things I thought were cool when we were 20 were actually really, really dumb and unimportant and weren't interested in them anymore."

"And I'm not even married or have kids, I can't imagine how stupid the sh*t I was into would seem if I had a family."

"However, video games I played when I was young still seem cool to literally everyone my age, so that didn't change even though I expected it would."

Early to bed, early to rise... or at least early to bed...

"I value my sleep a lot more at 30 than I did at 29."

"It scares me."

"Sleep deprivation."- Hoppy_Croaklightly

Yeah...I'll just have one glass

"Hangovers."- writer_rat

I'll pay up for convenience.

"Teenager/early 20’s: 'yo we can save money by booking the 7am return flight and not paying for accommodation - lets just stay at the club until 5am or sleep on the airport floor!'"

"30yo: I’d rather die."- Gravesens1stTouch

I'll be transparent, and I'll honor my plans!

"Bailing on plans last minute."

"If you don’t want to do something, just say so."- freakanature

Dude, we graduated over ten years ago!

"Bragging about your high school accomplishments."- Hysterical_Realist

Yeah... I'll get my own...

"Sleeping 8 to a hotel room to save money."- UrDraco

So this is what it's like to have a savings account...

Life is meant to be enjoyed.

"Here's some prospective from way in your future."

"I'm 64."

"When I was in my 50's my motto was, 'Oh, well'."

"I have 2 mottoes for my 60's."

"'Anyway, doesn't matter', and 'I don't need that stress in my life'."

"It's a great place to live."

Our tastes and interests change with each passing year.

Hence why staying up till 5am drinking straight from the bottle and eating nothing but potato chips might not have the same appeal.

Though no one should look back on those moments with shame or embarrassment.

After all, a good time was had by all, and that's what your 20s were for.

People Divulge Which Instances Of The Mandela Effect Freaked Them Out The Most

The Mandela effect is when multiple people share the same, incorrect memory.

Its name stems from when paranormal researcher Fiona Broome falsely believed that the future president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, died in prison in the 1980s.

A false memory she shared with a number of others.

Our memories have been known to deceive us, as we might frequently forget someone's name or one of our numerous online passwords.

But when we share a memory that turns out to be false with many others, convincing ourselves it wasn't the truth can be a very difficult ordeal indeed.

One last time. One last meal.

How do you chose a last meal?

Let's hope we never have to find out.

People on death row get that option.

Do they deserve it?

Whose to say?

But they have it.

A steak. A pizza... Burger King.

The food world is their oyster.

Oyster. Also an option.

The menu is endless...

People Break Down The Exact Moment They Realized Their Friends Were A-Holes

Most people have friends they've been close to for most of their lives.

But at the same time, friends evolve, and everyone finds themselves losing touch with any number of people they at one point considered their friends over time.

Most of the time, this isn't intentional, but just simply happens.

On rare occasions though, people might realize that their friends were not exactly who they thought they were, and didn't like who they revealed themselves to be.

When visiting any foreign country, one should always be familiar with the laws and customs of the land.

After all, what might be generally accepted on your home turf, might be frowned upon, if not illegal, elsewhere.

For that matter, even locals might need a refresher course on what they can and can't do while at home.
