    Official Name Suggestions

    Hi everyone, we need to talk. It would seem that JPR finally got around to accepting the fact that old people count, too.

    The only problem is, I’m not so sure how I feel about being a ‘senior citizen’, so the group  name ‘seniors’ should be visited.

    If you can think of an appropriate name for the most prestigious bunch of people on JPR, then write a reply to this OP with that name in the title. You can expound on it in the text area.

    Do NOT write a reply to the original OP that isn’t a suggested name, so I can get the data easily to do this.

    Then, everybody can go through the replies to the original OP and vote for the ones you like by replying to each suggested name. Reply ONLY  if you want to be able to vote on that name in a run off election. You can vote for as many as you want to, but you shouldn’t ‘stuff the ballot’ by voting for a name more than once. After a short period, I’ll go down the thread and pick out the three most popular names and we’ll vote on those three only until a winner is chosen.

    Then I’ll get ‘Pool or some other admin to give our group that name.

    If you have a question because I can’t write worth a shit, send me a PM and lets not only get you the info you need, but then I can come back and edit this so it makes sense.

    Let’s show the kids how to get something done.

      1. "Seniors" is fine with me.

      Maybe I get only half a vote under the railroad test.  I’m a senior on Amtrak but not on Metro-North.

        3. Older Adults? Security and Support in Aging? Second Half of Lifers?

        I do need to know if this is for ageism and aging and middle-aged people. I’m 50 and terrified of what’s ahead. I look 40, but because of a chronic illness am facing a lot of the fear about no safety nets and the lessening ways to consult part-time with every passing year.

        But if you mean 65 and up, I guess we need a group for middle-aged people.

        Thanks for hosting!

      14. There was another OP on this, with LOTS of suggestions

      Here is link to the OP:

      https://jackpineradicals.com/groups/seniors/forum/topic/group-name-not-dead-yet/#post-509458

      I have compiled them all, which I think should all be included on the first cut, as many (if not all) were seriously suggested, so deserve to be included here.  “Wrinkly Radicals” was suggested on this string too, so I won’t repeat it.  I cast my personal vote for Dirty Fucking Hippies

      Old Hippies,

      Not Dead Yet,

      Last Dance,

      Get Off My Lawn,

      Twilight Years,

      28. Still Waters Run Deep

      This is something I’ve always thought about. To see why go here:

      from wikipedia>

      Still waters run deep is a proverb of Latin origin now commonly taken to mean that a placid exterior hides a passionate or subtle nature. Formerly it also carried the warning that silent people are dangerous, as in Caesar’s summing up of Cassius in William Shakespeare’s play Julius Caesar I.2.195–6:

      Yon Cassius hath a lean and hungry look.
      He thinks too much. Such men are dangerous.

      end>

      While we may not be silent we are often ignored. Time to become a conscience for the soul of America.

      72. Let’s show the kids how to get something done – LET'S VOTE

      This is a lot of fun, but I’d like to see everybody voting for their favorites so that there are so many that SFFH has to really use his math skills and do some counting.

        @deadpool to use ‘Radical Road Kill’ instead.
