Literature by age

Since I can't resist any nerdery that involves a spreadsheet, I'm particularly tickled by this blog entry from the Guardian on charting literary characters by age and the separate blog this project has spawned. Has anyone ever had a similarly distressing realization that they'd now outpaced a character that they'd always thought of as older than they were?
