Henry Heimlich presented his famous maneuver when he was 54. Sir Francis Chichester was 65 when he sailed solo around the world. You're never too old to achieve greatness but there are some things you just have to complete in time. Twitter users are posting what they think everyone should accomplish before turning 35, and it hilariously describes what today's average adult is like.

It all started when MarketWatch published an article, saying by that age you should already have saved two times your salary. People instantly called it a stupid milestone and started providing their own alternatives. From properly setting up your kitchen to the contents of your hard drive, want to know how close you are to a proper grown-up? Scroll down and these tweets will help you get there. Oh, and vote for your favorites! (Cover Image: tiffany terry)

In my state disposable plastic bags have been banned, so everyone has reusable canvas ones. Naturally our canvas bags contain other canvas bags...

Oh, that happens in your 20s as well. When you're a teenage → "How old are you?", "15 and a half"; when in your mid to late 20s → "How old are you?" *doing maths*

Got that! But they're all stacked on a wall in a room, we call it the den, but really it's the library of unread books that we plan to read one day... so we just go in there and admire them all up on their shelves calling to us, but not loud enough that we can actually hear them. And that's why they stay up there on the shelf.

I don't have even one. I am too old fashioned I guess to be surrounded by books(hard covers)(not e-book).

I will never accept that. Why should we? "Acknowledging" is more accurate than "accepting".

By age 35 you should be to old to bet your well being on something like a bit coin.

Pretty much what I was thinking. By 35 you should have invented fire, brought down a woolly mammoth, had 6 to 8 children, most of which did before they were 5, and died at the ripe old age of 35.
