I think a better question would be "when is one old?" I just turned 70, look 55, feel 30, and have no aches, pains, illnesses or physical problems of any kind. So while 70 sounds old to a 20-year-old, I cannot think of myself that way.
我覺得問題換成:“一個人什么時候才算老?”更好。我剛剛70歲,看起來像55歲,感覺自己才30,而且并沒有任何病痛纏身。70歲讓20出頭的人聽起來老,但我并不覺得自己老。

My maternal grandmother lived to be 102. My paternal grandfather lived to be 99. I have good genes, so I figure I'll live another 30 to 40 years, barring any unforeseen incidents.
我的外祖母活到102歲,我的祖父活到99歲。我有這么好的基因,我認為我可以再活個三、四十年,除非發生不可預知的意外。

It makes my heart glad to see all these answers on Quora of people in their 70s, 80s, and beyond. Because I used to think that at that age, you can't deal with change or technology -- but these people do and they use Quora to help those of us who will be approaching those ages soon enough.
很高興可以在Quora看到七八十歲甚至更高齡的人的回答。因為我曾認為到了那個年紀,你就沒有辦法跟上變化和技術,但是這群人卻可以,他們使用Quora來幫助我們這些即將踏上高齡的人。

So I want to thank all the "old" posters here and I hope that when it's my turn, I can do the same for the next generation.
因此我想在此感謝那些”老"答主,也希望輪到我的時候我也可以像這樣幫助下一代們。

I'm 99 - will be 100 in 7 months. I live independently in my home. I hear ok with aids, see 20/20 - drive night/day. I was married 70 years to the love of my life - lost her 7 years ago. I have great children and their wonderful families, but all live in different parts of the country. I'm an active member of several organizations, like to read. I had a girl friend, a very lovely lady (only 90) I met 3 years ago. She just passed away. Is death imminent? Define imminent. Enjoy life.
我已經99了,在過7個月就100了。我獨居,需要佩戴助聽器、視線依舊不錯,白天黑夜都可以開車。。我與我的一生摯愛結婚70年了,她在7年前去世了。我有許多孩子,都組建了自己美滿的家庭,但是都居住在國內各地。我是幾個組織的積極成員,比如說閱讀。我曾經還有一個女朋友,是位非??蓯鄣呐浚ú?0歲),我們在三年前碰過面,但她去世了。死亡不遠了嗎?你應該先告訴我什么叫“不遠”。享受生活吧。
