They do infact get older from experiencing the many incidence of physical abuse ? Sorry for the car analogy, but if you drive a city car offroad, you'll have to fix it more often, and it will eventually go junk much faster. You exchange bits and parts in a car by buying new parts, and the body exchanges dead cells for new ones by dividing cells, and the telomeres shorten. No new concept of "genetic scars" required.

Not me... Hated the keyboard with rubber keys and the crude T9 typing. Managed to retype one or two half-page listings of funny text animations from computer magazines and was totally fed up and non-enthusiastic about this programming thing. I became enthusiastic much later, when windows 95 and Borland Delphi came around.

But I admit I enjoyed playing games on it and I've broken a few joysticks on decathlon-type games.
