Age breakdown of CD

There's been some recent talk about age disparities in FRC. So let's make a very scientific CD poll to measure the ages on this platform. If some young whippersnapper wants to post similar polls on reddit or discord for comparison be my guest. Please share the results here if you do.

Last option should be 71 or older, my b.

Could a mod (or Brandon?) just scrape this information? Get ages from user profiles, and only count those who have posted within some recent interval; e.g., the past twelve months.

I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.

I'm young enough to get the kids' memes, but old enough to be completely baffled by t-posing.

I'm also baffled by T-posing, but that doesn't mean I didn't join in on the T-pose dance on the third level of Ford Field

Re: Age breakdown of CD

These poll results are pretty surprising, thought CD's demo was much older (i.e. mostly mentors).
