How old is old?

My father is as active today as he ever was.  He travels the world, excercises, reads, watches grandchildren, teaches, and the list goes on.  By age many people would consider him old. Fortunately for me, he is not old.

I saw this AARP youtube commercial this morning about millennials describing old.  A bit hokey at first, it turns into a great 4 minutes of video.

My favorite line in the video that I think is very true: "When people start stopping, that is when they start getting old".  My dad hasn't started stopping yet and is an inspiration to me.
