So 55 Questionables responded to the age poll. I wonder what proportion of active members that is. After a 10-hour drive and three beers, I can't think of a way to figure that out.

The current poll is skewing younger than the original poll; the current mean is 27.4 ± 12.7. The median age is 23.5. The bimodality of the distribution is less noticeable this time, though there does appear to be a secondary peak in the 40s. If I split the distribution the same way as before, I get two modes, one with a mean at 22.2 ± 4, and another with its mean at 50.7 ± 11.9.

And that's your overanalysis for today.

I cannot be 42 in any base :(

Thinking about it a bit more, you can only be 42 every four years (the first time being at 22, because you need at least base 5 in order to even have a 4). Unless you allow for non-natural bases, but that'd be weird.

There is no maximum age to be 42 though.

No 42 for me this year. The closest ones are 436 and 397. But I prefer to think of myself as 10003. Being a round age is always nice. Now thinking about it, I realize that come this summer, my age in any sufficiently large base system will be the first letter of my name :-D
