It's scientific:

Against all evidence, most people seem to believe that who they are now is pretty much who they will be forever.

For example, the average 33-year-old surveyed expected less change over the next decade than the average 43-year-old reported actually had occurred over the past decade. As the paper says, “People, it seems, regard the present as a watershed moment at which they have finally become the person[s] they will be for the rest of their lives.” Although personality and values do tend to become more stable with age, people generally underestimate the extent of future personality shifts. The researchers call this phenomenon “the end of history illusion.”

Interesting. I think that all depends on individual circumstances. Some people are content with never changing anything; others are all about change.

In the past five years, I've gotten engaged, left the country for the first time in my life, written a book, changed jobs.

But you know what? I'm still the exact same weight! And I still have this greasy-ass beard! And a shiny fucking bald head!

FAKE NEWS!!!!!!!!!

Well. This was a total shitfest of a thread to be fair. It’s why I ignored it the first time around.
Be more better dude.

Well, to be fair.... both our beards are so long and heavy with chip fat and burger sauce and our arses are so humongous that we can barely get out of a door.
Surely walking to the toilet and back is enough exercise?
