the first thing i'd do when I retired is get in line at a krispy kream, but 3 dozen donuts..... then go back and do the same a few hours later for lunch
so the ability to fight off gluttony ranks very highly in my "skills to admire" category
in fact, I killed off 10 timbits while typing this post.

would you be more impressed with MJ being able to dunk... or MJ being able to program his PVR?
I don't know many 50 yr olds who can program a PVR...
Exactly, and mine is strawberry or maybe under the leg tomahawk with a step ladder. It's too close to call.
Speaking of which. You guys are old and you've probably done quite a bit of training and shit throughout your life. What kind of methods/exercises do you guys recommend for increasing vertical jump? I can barely touch the freaking mesh!
p.s I'm about 5'10" in shoes
If you're going to do this program, I'm warning you that this program isn't that easy as it looks like. After this program you'll see big increase in your vertical leap and after that you'll only need to do simple training regimes to maintain your vertical or even get better.
If you play basketball in school, you can use this program too, just speak with the coach at first .
EDIT: This program not only going to help your vertical leap, but it also strengthen your knees ankles and your overall physical strength. After this program my vertical leap increased by 6-7 inches ( others do better, they say. ) also my running speed was much better. You should also ask coach maybe he has this program on his hands, because I haven't paid for it, I got it from the coach.

Planning on doing some new program. Maybe Insanity next but I'm probably going to do a little P90x again to get myself ready for Insanity.
In regards to doing it as a kid. I don't know. When I was in high school I played a lot of hockey. I only really trained in the off-season because I was playing 5-6 night/week in some capacity. In the off-season I jogged, inline skated, played pick-up hoops games, golf and baseball. I didn't lift much weight as kid. P90X has you lifting weights but it's your choice to do heavy lifts or not. If you want to add bulk go for the heavy weights but before you do anything ask somebody you trust who knows about training. Maybe a coach, gym teacher, friend, etc.
Plyo doesn't really involve weights. It's just a lot of jumping essentially. If I remember correctly their are some instances when you can hold weights as you're doing some of the moves though. Plyometric training is old school, been around a long, long time and from what I learned you just need to be careful with the jumps. If you're playing hoops who should already know how to land properly to save your knees. You probably have really good shoes too so you should be set. Just talk to somebody first.
I've done this, P90X is still hell, but I hope I'll finish it.
I'm spot on 6 feet and can dunk. I haven't done any of these exercises though. I just go on a lot of runs and do dumbbell/barbell squats for lower body training.
Along the three months. I had to end three or four workouts early because I tweaked my hammy or my back got a little sore, etc. By the third month I had none of that working against me. It was smooth. I think it's very important that you don't work through when your body says "shut it down".
