    70-year-old babies? Interesting concept. I’m going to mull that over while eating a thousand-year-old egg.

    And Rat is forgetting that it’s not uncommon nowadays for people to live well into their 80s and 90s. That’s an extra ten to twenty years he’s blowing off!

    One of the things that struck me when I took a biological statistics/modeling class, was that people in an 1800s cemetery either died before age 6 or after age 60, with only a small handful in between. The age six is easily explained because the immune system makes major developments between birth and age 5. The childhood diseases we vaccinate for have made a tremendous difference.

    Reminds me about the joke about priests:
    The young priest is trying to save the world.
    The middle-aged priest is trying to save his parish.
    The old priest is trying to save himself.

    I know plenty of babies in their thirties, forties and fifties. Some folks just never mature, even though they may get taller and learn to talk.

    I’m a little offended by the 60’s guy! I sure hope I don’t look like that! I still wear a suit and carry a briefcase…. maybe I’m still the 30’s guy? No… I can’t remember what’s in the briefcase, OK … OK don’t tell me!

    “In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”

    my gravestone will read “wasn’t, was, wasn’t” short and sweet.

    You figure out that the CEO and his cronies own your corporate life and will suck out from you everything with the possible exception of your bones. Then you dump that life for a better one working for less money but for yourself. But if you were frugal and avoided the bankers traps, your debt is low or non-existent, so you WIN.
