A man said to another man (sex irrelevant, but assume they are male), "I am Younger Than You." The other man said to him, "I am eight years old, you are ten years old."

Were all the statements made true?
Is it relevant that the phrase "Younger Than You" has all three words capitalized?
Is "Younger Than You" the name of something?
Is relativity relevant?
Are the years Earth years?
Are the men full-grown men?

Are they both right?
Has the first man literally been alive for eight years? And the second man for 10?
Is the bold type relevant?
Is space travel relevant?
