"Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10 years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in fractions. 'How old are you?' 'I'm four and a half!' You're never thirty-six and a half."*

--Comedian George Carlin on aging

* Editor's note: One might refer to oneself as thirty-nine and three-quarters, but not for the same reason that kids think in fractions.
