    Re: confusion

    Simply...all are.

    '...than I' is correct grammar, but in colloquial speech, sounds too formal, and so most people would use the form, 'than me."
    '..than I am' is correct grammar, and sounds a lot less formal than "..than I.' Another example of its use would be:

    He: Mary looks about 40.
    She: She can't be! I'm 41 and she's a lot older than I am!
