    after 45 years of heavy smoking, now i'm 62, quit at 59, damage was done, but fortunately, even with years of heavy drinking and smoking, i am fairly healthy.
    i love my social security, even though it isnt much (see heavy drinking) and am living in a beautiful low income apartment on the ninth floor with a great view. problem is i feel too young to be here, although being here may be the luckiest thiing to happen to me in years.

      reporter : Old man, to what do you attribute your ability to live to age 100??

      Old man: No Drinking, No Smoking, No running around with women!!

      Reporter:   so that's the secret???

      Old Man: "Yep, when I was 90 I told myself, I better change my lifestyle or I'll never make it to 100..."

      Without geometry, life is pointless. And blues harmonica players suck.
