Also claims to be a Discordian for a decade. I'm not sure where I'd put the average age when someone finds out about Discordia, but I'd lay a bet (I should stake one in Junk's thread) it's over 18, if not mid-20's.
That too. Is there a name for that? I feel like that's an appeal to something or other, saying "I've been x for y, therefore I know more than you!"
It's a variation of appeal to authority, using experience/time as the metric.
Kind of like how most subcultures have older people shit on initiates because they're Old skool and these kids just didn't see the scene at it's height.
