    If you plotted Hugh Hefner on this graph would it be a (roughly) horizontal line?

    Where do I sign up for my 32 year old?

    Are you allowed to trade in a fifty year old for two twenty five year olds?

    Scary –  as someone who is 34 this year,  apparently I can get myself a nice 24 year old girl .   I can dig that.    On the other hand I could end also end up with a 55 year old woman and that would be ok.     My mother is 55 years old so now im feeling a bit ill.     I think this graph only really makes sense when looking down,  not up in age.
