  • I did a few calculations and I figured out that Stan's line in Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future about being in his 60s is incorrect. If you look at the calender in Carpet Diem it says 1982, this is implied to be the year Ford got sucked into the portal. Since we know that this happened 10 years after Stan was kicked out, we know that the twins were 17 or 18 in 1972. This would make them 57/58 in the time of the show since it takes place in 2012.

    • What is really weird though is that if you continue upon this Dipper and Mabel's grandfather would be 40 (assuming he is the baby in A Tale of Two Stans)

    • he had kids early lol do all the math and see how old dipper and mabels parents are

    • There is not really a way to find that since we do not know when they were born.

    • Well the father you can kinda trace. I mean if he was 18 and had a child I mean how old would he be if that is even possible

        Loading editor
    • The problem with this is that I don't think the writers thought it through when they showed the baby in A Tale of Two Stans. Because, for example if the grandfather had kids at 20 that would make Dipper and Mabel's dad 20. That would also mean he had them when he was 8 which would be impossible.

    • yeah, unless there was a kid that was not seen, but that is funny, they kinda made a big mistake, unless no that wouldn't happen

    • Wait a minute, my mom knew someone whose parents had them when they were 13. If this is the case Dipper and Mabel's dad would have had them when he was 15. Unlikely but plausible.

    • I mean, that be funny. We might have stumbled on a big goof, or maybe there is an unknown link in the family, or Dipper's dad got started early

    • My theory: In the fragment of "The Tale of Two Stans" it says "Now, we are going back 50 years from today". 50 years back today is the year that Stan twins are playing on Glass Shard Beach,NJ and they explored that little cave in that time. So that year is 1962. Probably, the Stan twins were 12 years old in that time, which is the current age of Dipper&Mabel because that same age will give story a strong detail. So, if they were 12 in 1962 that means they born on 1950.

      So, they are like 62 years old now.

    • They never said 50 years from today. Stan says "It started a lifetime ago, 1960 something" or something along those lines.

    • That still only fixes one problem. We have a problem with Dipper and Mabel's father age

      I have a theory about that. Blendin said "I will go to the past and make your parent never meet" when he was arresting. 

      Blendin went to the past but he accidently maintain their parents met so earlier than normal instead of made them never meet

    • that makes sense

    • I don't understand that theory, how would it explain their parents being so young?

    • I mean, the best thing we can do is see if this is a goof or not

    • 1.  Stan and Ford are early sixties. I think the important thing a lot of people are missing is that Stan and Ford didn't necessarily not see each other for only a decade. Stan said it was "over ten years", so it is entirely possible that they are in their sixties (and seeing as Stan sees himself as "pushing seventy", it's certain beyond reasonable doubt that they are.)

      2. I think it's much better for our childhoods if we assume that the baby was not Dipper and Mabel's grandfather. Assuming the baby would have been born in 1969, and Dipper and Mabel in 1999, that leaves thirty years for the baby and his child to have the twins. Thirty divided by two is... fifteen.

      No one said Stan and Ford don't have an older brother.

      Yes! He could have prevented so much fan pain and energy spent on countless forums if he had just remembered!

      In my headcanon the Stan'O War was found in 1964, and the Stans were born in 1952. Not like that helps the wiki at all.

    • Yeah, well I mean we have to account for something in the age

      That's a pretty good guess, maybe the best one.

      I think that might really be their age, great thinking.

    • I am just going to say this: I fully support talking out/about what their age might be, but it will not be changed on their page to anything but canon.

      True Dat. But if He's "Pushing 70" that might make him 68-69 years old, But my theory is: Stan and Ford were born in 1950, and so that would make them like dipper and Mabel's age in 1962, and so, in 2012 they would be 62 soooooo in 2015-16 they'd be 65-66 that's only my theory, :)

    • I think them being somewhere in the LX((60))'s is correct. in Roadsde Attraction  Darlene guessed Stan to be LXX((70)) something.

    • I did my own personal calculations on my calculator that I use for school and the show takes place in 2012. Ford was missing for 30 years. He went missing in 1982. Use a little bit of "Back To The Future" knowledge so you people don't hurt your heads too much. In other words, the original Pines twins had to have been born in 1955. It all adds up perfectly if you think really hard about it.

        Loading editor
    • Yes, but the thing is we don't know how long Ford was researching in Gravity Falls, and thus, we can't work backward from 1982.

    • They born in 1950-55. 

      Stans are Mabel and Dipper' uncles, not great uncles, that's all. Their young brother gave birth to Mabel and Dipper at 30 years. Or there was unknown older brother/cousin of Stans...

      WRONG: I have gone over this numerous times.

      EXPLANATION/CORRECTION: In 1982, when I went missing through my own portal, Stan arrived at my front doorstep saying this: "Okay Stan. You haven't seen your brother for 10 years." That means Stan was kicked out of our father's house in 1972. That's the year we finished highschool. On June 15th of 1972, we turned 17. It was snowing when Stan arrived, so it was December when I went missing. If you subtract 17 from 1972, you should have 1955. June 15th of this year we turned 63. In 2012, we were 57.
