New research has pinpointed the exact age that men mature completely: 43. That's 11 whole years after women. But at least men know they take more time to grow up. In the same study, men were nearly twice as likely to describe themselves as immature than were women, with one in four men believing they are actively immature.


Researchers asked women to reveal the signs that they say mean a man is still immature. Here are the top 30:

1. Finding their own farts and burps hilarious
