Man Attempts to Legally Lower His Age by 20 Years

In an odd story out of the Netherlands, a 69-year-old man is attempting  to legally change his age so that he will be twenty years younger.  Motivational speaker Emile Ratelband reportedly brought his strange case to court this week arguing that changing one's  age should be allowed since people are permitted to legally alter their  name and gender. As such, he believes that there are grounds for his  legal date of birth to be shifted forward twenty years to shave two  decades from his age.

As to why Ratelband is pursuing this bizarre course of action, the  reason is not all that surprising: he wants to improve his love life.  "When I'm on Tinder and it says I'm 69, I don't get an answer," he  lamented, "when I'm 49, with the face I have, I will be in a luxurious  position." Ratelband also suggested that his advanced age is preventing  him from getting work as well as getting a mortgage to buy a house and  assured the court that, if he is successful, he'll forfeit his pension  because he'd be 'too young' to collect it.
