http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/10111993/Men-grow-up-at-43-11-years-later-than-women.html

I've got 21 years to go! Fuk yea! No pressure.

But on a serious note, I'd like to know whether this applies to men outside the UK.

List of immature actions
1.Finding their own farts and burps hilarious
2.Eating fast food at 2:00am
3.Playing videogames
4.Driving too fast or 'racing' another car at the lights or on the motorway
5.S******ing a bit at rude words
6.Driving with loud music
7.Playing practical jokes
8.Trying to beat children at games and sport
9.Staying silent during an argument
10.Not being able to cook simple meals
11.Re-telling the same silly jokes and stories when with the lads
12.Don't like talking about themselves/ having proper conversations
13.Hating books/reading because of short attention span/they're boring
14.Doing crazy dance moves
15.Mum still doing their washing
16.Having their Mum still make them breakfast/any meal
17.Wearing trainers to night clubs
18.Owning a skateboard or BMX
19.Not eating vegetables
20.Changing jobs regularly
21.Getting too excited over stag do's
22.Sometimes trying to do wheelies/stunts on their bike
23.Driving a modified car or one with a loud exhaust/boy racer
24.Showing off about how girls are attracted to them
25.Wearing pyjamas, specifically cartoon pyjamas
26.Using dodgy chat-up lines
27.Showing off about protein shakes/weight-lifting/how much they 'lift'
28.Littering
29.Wearing saggy-crotched jeans
30.Having a cartoon bedspread


...I don't see why video games is a sign of immaturity. How is that any different than a woman reading 50 shades of Grey or spending hours watching Sex in the City or Coronation Street. Sounds more like women being bitter that video games are more exciting than their vaginas. PS4 FTW!

"Men give up at 43"

Seriously, my dad is 58 and acts like a kid and he's ****ing awesome. I'd much prefer my dad then some stuffy boring regular old guy.

Also I agree about the video games thing. You could read some sci-fi book, or a space book, or Lord of the Rings but play a sci-fi or space game? A LOTR game? No, that's kids stuff.

The majority of those things on that list aren't immature at all.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I just turned 55 last weekend. A well timed fart is still fucking hilarious, video games rock, crank it up and speed. 43? pfffftttt.

Huh, at 43 most peoples parents will likely be dead, or too elderly to do their sons laundry.

Most of that list is dumb as shit, and most people grow out of half of it by 16, the rest by 20.

When most of you are 43 your parents will be in their 60s.

And well yes, I'll enjoy the carpal tunnel and tendonitis, because trying to get one is clearly smarter than any word you have spoken thus far.

I find that doing the opposite can be rather foolish, in certain situations.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

I'm too young to quite grasp the concept of age. I expect to die in my 50s.

To be fair my parents parents are dead, and my dad just turned 43

1.Finding their own farts and burps hilarious - it's not just his own either. Also, fart jokes are funny anyway, so that's not really fair.

3.Playing videogames - he owns a ps3 and got a lightgun for the wii, but doesn't play them often.

4.Driving too fast or 'racing' another car at the lights or on the motorway - yup

8.Trying to beat children at games and sport - my mum always has to remind him to let the kids win when they take my cousins to the park etc.

13.Hating books/reading because of short attention span/they're boring - I wouldn't say he hates them, but he doesn't read often. And if he does they're just local ghost story books and even then it's only on holiday while sunbathing.

21.Getting too excited over stag do's - that's every male in my family.

My dad's 51 and these apply to him.

I'm 21, my parents are both 63, my surviving granny is 98, and in a home.

I think my entire family is lazy or actually got their youth out of the way before raising kids.

Louis CK had a bit on this in his "Oh My God" special.

"Kids are so stupid. They actually believe that when they're older they'll just die. They'll just explode into a nebula of excess. They just hit 50 and *BOOM* OH MY GOD IT'S JUST WHAT HE WANTED THE WHOLE TIME! No. You don't just die. If you don't take care of yourself you just have a long shitty second half."

It's not exactly what he says, going from memory, but yea. You won't die at 50 unless by some freak accident.

Surely that should simply be "going to night clubs"?

I don't get the letting the kids win thing, you just got to keep it close. they won't learn or improve if you just roll over.

Well this was a horrible list of things; Most of these are just about having fun and enjoying yourself in your free time, how does that make you immature? Obviously things like 'not being able to cook simple meals' or 'mum still doing their washing' do, but most of this list is just a big buzzkill.

Washing is another word for masturbation.

And trainers are these:

Maybe what we consider as 'grown up' is something different now if most people's behavior past the age of 25 or so isn't considered 'mature'

Yep. And England is full of pudgy, pasty, croc-wearers, according to MY personal experiences at Disney World.
