Now [being almost 35], I look at sample code and I just cant seem to take it in!? Maybe I'm getting old, or simply.... too dumb?

Thoughts?
despite the blue pill answers you got by some members the reality is:

yes you are so old to learn programing
is like playing chess, you will only play as chessmasters if your learn being a child

after 20-25 years old the human brain get stuck with the basic knowledge you had before

there is a popular phrase that says: old dog never learns new tricks / which is 100% legit
