73 years of age
This website seems to be one of the most age-terrified places in the world. 73 is not that old by today's standards. My 76 year old father still carries on life much as he did when he was 40. Still works, goes out partying 4 or 5 nights a week, if you asked a stranger how old he was, they'd say late 50s/early 60s. Accidents or cancer aside, we will live to our 90s now, so your 70s are like your 50s were in the last generation really.
No, the point was that 73 isn't all that old, so 'doesn't look 73' is a bit of a red herring.
