The last tag in the comic reads: "54: 'I can still do this!'".
I'm 54 years old. I've been programming since I was 15, and have been paid for it since I was 19. Not once have I felt like that remark. I am leading the rest of my group, all but one of which are younger than me, kicking and screaming into the future.

OK, the "Wow! I can do this!" is right - but I still get those "YES! It Worked!" / "fist pump" moments (And I'll be 57 in February if anyone wants to send me large donations of money, bacon, and / or chocolate) The rest of it? Sounds like a developer whose brain is set in concrete and has no flexibility at all.
