Things Other People Accomplished at Your (My) Age

I ran across an interesting website today that allows you to enter your age and see in a list what other people had accomplished at that same age. It could be encouraging or discouraging depending on your perspective. If you are 31 like I am, here is what a few others had done at our age:

At age 31:

  • French Egyptologist Jean Francois Champollion deciphered the Rosetta stone.

  • British physician Thomas Wedgwood produced the first photograph.

  • Eli Terry produced clocks with interchangeable parts. He also introduced the free-trial, no-money-down sales method.

  • Gregory Pincus achieved in-vitro fertilization of rabbits. Later he invented the birth control pill.

  • Dennis Kucinich was the youngest person ever elected to lead a major American city (Cleveland).

Enter your age here and see what others have done.
