What transmission and how old are you?

After reading tons of posts about DSG vs. Manual. I'm curious what everyone likes or has and how old they are? My theory is a majority that like manual and dislike the DSG are probably in a younger age bracket. However, I'm sure there are some old farts that are diehard Manual fans. I thought this may be interesting to see.. I'll start

36 y/o
DSG

38 DSG, have had manual and auto throughout my life, so far 2 days with the DSG and really like how it simulates a stick, plus not willing to deal with a clutch in traffic jams.
