Study in New Zealand followed people since 1970 until the age of 45.

They can predict the walking speed of a 45 year old using brain function tests and scans they took when they were 3.

Slow walkers were found to age more quickly -have older looking faces, and smaller brains.

I've read that my gait suggests early onset cerebral palsy :(
Or was it Parkinson's?
It has a cool name though. "Gunslinger's gait." Only learned it was a thing after seeing someone dissect Putin's walk. I think I developed it cuz of a backpack that limited one arm's mobility though.

I'm definitely not a slow walker. I always want to get wherever I'm going to as fast as possible. I hate wasting time. Although, i'm not 45 yet.

I always felt I was genetically better than slow-walking pavement-hogging won't-get-out-the-way don't-you-have-anywhere-to-fucking-be dickheads

now I know I was right
