This 69-Year-Old Wants a Judge to Change His Age to 49 Because the World Is a Toilet Now


#TIA – This story is weird enough to attract attention when everyone else is still preoccupied by the mid-term elections.

This week in “Everything Is Dumb, Humanity Is Broken,” a 69-year-old man is petitioning to legally have his age lowered to 49 because it fits his body better, claiming that age is fluid, like gender or my faith in humanity. The Dutch man, Emile Ratelband, was born in 1949 and works as a pensioner in his hometown of Arnhem. Here. Listen to this. It feels relevant.
