No definitely not.
I've never directly lied about my age, but if someone assumes I am younger than I am, and give me a child's admission price, then I don't let on.

Yeah; it didn't happen often though because usually they ask my age, and I won't lie if they ask. I used to be the other way round actually. If I wanted to buy a 15/18 DVD/game, they would think I was too young, and ask for my ID. On one occasion, I didn't have it, so couldn't buy it. Both of these things were quite a while ago now, but I still sometimes get asked about whether I need an adult or child ticket.
I've had the same problem. Once I was shopping during the day and had a shop assistant ask me why I wasn't in school. I was 22. Well into my twenties I had to show ID to buy alcohol.
That's the problem if I ever want to buy alcohol as a present for someone.
When I was a teen, I lied about my age in order to set up an email account. That is all.

No, but sometimes when people thought I was younger than I was I just went with it rather than argue. It just seemed less embarrassing.
When I started my clinical practice as a dentist at age 24, I used to talk, dress and act in a more mature manner, so people would feel I'm older. With age comes experience and patients prefer an experienced doctor. After doing good work, when they realized I'm very young in the field they used to be surprised and happy . Didn't lie directly, but pretended nevertheless
No, I've never needed to.
No - can't see the point of it nor what it would achieve without coming back and biting me at some stage in the future.
