"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."

"I’m not in my twenties anymore but life is good."- arcanehavok743

"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...

"Spending all your money at the bar on payday."- deputytech

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 Describe The Scariest Movies They've Ever Seen

You might say moviegoers who love horror films are sadists.

They derive pleasure from being spooked and terrified, and they somehow love crouching in their seats out of sheer fright watching supernatural entities scaring the daylights out of homeowners or serial killers stalking their prey.

It's all an adrenaline rush.

However, even gore and slasher fans have their limits.

In the recent Pride and Prejudice update Fire Island, Dex leads the main character Noah to believe that the stand-offish lawyer Will judges him for having an OnlyFans page.

A site that has become commonly used for amateur and professional porn performers and sex workers to directly profit from erotic and sexual content they upload themselves.

As is the case with their literary counterparts, Darcy and Wickham, Will's apathy towards Dex runs much deeper than his OnlyFans page.

But Will wouldn't be the first person to judge someone for utilizing the site as a means of income.

Several people might also stop their romantic pursuits of those who decide to upload x-rated content as a side (or primary) hustle.

Others, however, might not have a problem with it, and might even join them in their endeavors.

I know that many of you love the chili from a certain fast-food restaurant that rhymes with "Bendy's," but I'm here to tell you that that stuff is not fresh. Not one bit.

Okay, that statement might not hold true from franchise to franchise, but it's something worth thinking about.

Sorry to burst your bubble: This is a dark secret I've carried inside me for more than a decade.

Keep in mind: It was tasty. Quite. But it did sit out for a while. Didn't stop the customers from eating it though, and they were happy and I was paid for my work and that was that.

But there are other job secrets out there that you might not be aware of.

People shared the deets with us after Redditor You_are_a_dolt asked the online community,

"What’s a trade secret you know from working the industry?"

There are many cases where a company or product promises good quality or intentions.

But that isn't always the case as some companies fail to deliver and they make off with your hard-earned cash.

In an instantly gratifying world, consumers are quick to go after the things they want with the click of a button as long as they have the funds.

But they should keep a close eye on where their money is going toward.
