    snip
    A Dutch businessman is making waves after he launched a legal battle to officially roll back his age 20 years...............

    Emile Ratelband, who is -- for now -- 69 years old, told a Dutch court this week he didn’t feel “comfortable” with his date of birth and wished to have it change from March 11, 1949, to March 11, 1969........................

    “You can change your name. You can change your gender. Why not your age?” he told De Telegraaf outside court. “Nowhere are you so discriminated against as with your age.”


    end snip

    Did anyone not see this coming? We've allowed the insanity where you can be any sex that you want at any given moment, then why not age as well?

    If anything, I’d love to be at legal retirement age - would be sweet to collect social security in mid-30s.
    If gays can dip into a social security funds survivor benefits that was meant for women, yet is given to everyone, why can’t I start collecting?

    Since age has to do with pension, I can see how someone may want to legally be 69 when he’s only 20... but in reverse?

    Not all Dutch a smart people... sorry :)
