Question should have been in regards to the mental age.

*"with regard to"

And that's kind of my point.

The behaviour reflected in the TOOL news thread, with regard to the powerful impact TOOL's music has on the members arguing in it.

The age of members on FE.

I thought it was obvious, particularly after my comment in that thread, but I can understand how it wasn't.

people under 15 will brag about them liking Tool. "I'm only 13, yet I like this complicated music that society doesn't want me to do"

My theory is that some of the more vocal fanbois are also the youngest members here. They see TOOL as more of a conceptual machine, varied in its abilities and purposes.

Much of what they're (and we all know who I'm talking about) saying reflects this theory. Adding in the shiny new appeal of psychedelics, and you have a veritable cult of enthusiastic teenagers/young adults.

Then you get to our/my age - over thirty, happy to listen to TOOL every now and then, but largely dismissive of the hype and overall experience that comes with both the band itself and combining TOOL with drugs/sex/meditation/whatever. It's not being jaded - it's just having done it before.

I was hoping that this poll would reflect a large number of young people here, but that's not the case (so far). I have no choice but to assume that a small, vocal minority are making up the hardcore "fanboi" membership base here in the forum. I'm also going to continue assuming that any talk of the overwhelming, unquestionable, holy benefits of psychedelic substances, a demonising of alcohol, and an unadulterated worship of TOOL comes from the mouths of under-25s.

Which isn't a bad thing. I was a fucking dick too when I was that age.

I called and fuck if they didn't say I had to pay with 2 US quarters.
Not 5 dimes, not 50 pennies, not 10 nickles...2 quarters only!
Just like the bitch said, they said.
Ain't that some shit?
Bullshit, too, if you ask me; I didn't even get to talk to Alyssa...or Samantha! They said neither
one of 'em was there. What kinda bull shit is that?....not there....pffft
Bullshit! I just saw her!
Scam if you ask me.
