Jeanne Calment, the french woman who lived to 122, the oldest age verified in modern records, enjoyed a glass of port a day, two pounds of chocolate a week, and smoked to the age of 117.

From Associated Press

Speculation is that the increase in the French tobacco tax is what finally caused her demise.

I know a regular pipe smoker who's 95 years young. (My mother-in-laws uncle). He bought a new refrigerator last week and purchased a 5 year Maintenance Agreement. Talk about optimistic.!

I knew there was a reason I started smoking a pipe, to get me to my goal of 100 years.

Why in the world would anyone want to live to 100?
All your buddies are dead, most of your kids probably die off before you, maybe even a few grandkids. you probably have eye sight, hearing, and dexterity issues, even if you have 'perfect health' you have bowel and bladder control issues.. Athritus messing with every joint in your body.. Screw that.

I like to think that enjoying life is more about what goes on in your head and your heart than what goes on in your bowels or your bladder PB. Wink Very Happy cheers

Which is why I pointed out your buddies would be dead, most of your kids would be dead, probably some of your grandbabys would be dieing off.. doesn't sound appealing to me.

Most of my buddies have always kinda been jerkoffs anyway, and kids always seemed like more trouble than they are worth. If you ask me, it sounds like life would just be starting to get good!

"A census in Indonesia has identified a 157-year old woman named Turinah of South Sumatra if true, she can claim to be the oldest living being on Earth. She is reportedly born in 1853 and has a 108-year old adopted daughter. Turinah speaks Dutch fluently, works in her house, has clear memory, undisturbed sight and no problems of hearing she loves to smoke clove cigarettes. The only authentic record of anyone crossing 120 years of age was a Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment who died in 1997 at the age of 122"

I want to see 3 centuries. I was born in the 20th, plan to live throughout the 21st, then see the very beginning of the 22nd. Oh how much will change! Though it means to plan for retirement is retarded cuz' going 40 years after the initial 65th birthday isn't possible. I'll simply con people convinced I'll die within the next 5 years and have them pay me until I die in exchange to get my house or something after I pass. A woman actually did this, a guy came to her to pay her 500 a month in order to get her house after she passed but he passed years and years before she did and because of the terms his wife still had to pay her!

I want to sit on my front porch, as an old man, drinking something with alcohol in it, smoking my pipe and cussing people as they drive by.

Why postpone your joy? If you have a porch, you can do it today. I know I do.
