That's silly. Sure the #1 player is in their 20's. What on earth does that have to do with learning new things? The younger trend for ranked chess players likely has a lot more to do with the fact that there is almost no money it .

Since there are players that were world chess champions for spans of 20 years or longer, your logic makes sense. Since we are the same age, I don't believe your failing logic is a product of your aging mind.

Seriously. Your complaining that stopped providing updates for devices more than 4 years old. Interesting position in a world where you can go out and buy a brand new Android device today and have a 50% chance of ending up with something that will never support the current version of Android. Forget about any of them ever supporting a future version.

How do people come up with this ridiculous stuff.

Didn't happen. If it did happen , it was a darwin moment. Even following the directoions in the text message the carrier sends whenever you land in a foreign country would have prevented it. By the way, even at AT&Ts 19.95 a meg it would not have been 1000s of dollars.

Pro-tip: Don't leave the country with data roaming on, automatic downloads of purchases, and automatic downloads over cellular all while being on a crappy plan that charges you by the megabyte for data roaming.

Seriously, don't. No matter how could you think your timing is you will be paying a fortune. I guarantee the number of people this cost actual money number in the 10s. I know there are a lot of stupid people in the world. However, less than 20 are actually this stupid.
