Frodo wasn't 33, he was in his 50's

This is true, one of the details that a lot of people miss. If you like the LOTR books you should read the Silmarillion and The children of Hùrin too! They're great.

this man is correct. he was 33 on his birthday at the beginning of the book. but he didn't leave the shire til he was in his 50s

Frodo was 33. If you read the book, you would find that when the adventure started, Bilbo Bagins was having his 111th birthday.

Bilbo and Frodo share the same birthday

111 + 33 = 144
Bilbo decided to vanish on his birthday, because the square root of 144 is twelve, which is considered to be not only bad luck to hobbits, but also highly taboo to even speak of. Seriously, they hate dozens.

Also, Aragorn is a Half-elf. The love Arwen had of Aragorn was soiled when her father; the king of the elves, led her to believe that he was only a man, when in-fact, he is immortal like her. She could have avoided all of the issues, if she only asked him one single.. Critical.. question.. How old are you Aragorn?

The adventure didn't start until many years after Frodo received the ring. Frodo was indeed 33 when he received the ring, but didn't leave the Shire until his 50th birthday

How the hell did you manage to get ALL those points wrong? It's like you did that on purpose

gandalf too around 22 years to actually realize what the ring was and to get back to the shire to tell frodo to gtfo

What? No, there's 17 years between Bilbo leaves the Shire on their birthday, and Gandalf returns before Frodos sets upon his quest..

Read the book. Decades actually pass in between Frodo getting the ring and Gandalf finding out what it is. It even mentions him visiting a few more times between.

Aragorn was not immortal, he was one of the Dúnedain. Meaning he had extended life -- about 3 times that of normal men -- but still not immortal.

Also, Frodo hung around The Shire for several years before he set off on his quest.

galgawine is correct.

Bilbo was in his 50's in the Hobbit. Not Frodo

Frodo didn't leave the shire until he was 50. They were both 50 when they started their adventures.

I'm not talking about the Hobbit, I'm talking about LotR and I know I'm right so go read the book bro
