  •  The funny thing is... (3+ / 0-)

    I'm 60 and I certainly don't feel old. I jump on my trampoline 45 minutes each day, I am in great health,  and I have never been to a doctor, other than a dermatologist for skin problems. But the reason I am so healthy and able to exercise so much is that I am long-term unemployed and have the time to do so. I am very worried for my future and how I will survive in this culture. Most of my work, as a musician, for the past two decades has been in the underground economy, and subsequently, I will make very, very little on S.S. not nearly enough to survive. So maybe when I'm in my eighties I will invest in a pistol and dig myself a nice little hole to fall into.
